Re: Person of Interest Season 3

Last night's episode was amazing.

Loved the structure (the bookends of heart monitors, the interviews that opened each act, etc.) and the opening montage with Cash's cover of "Hurt" playing over the proceedings. Brilliant stuff.

Loved the unleashing of Root and the return of god-mode ("And that's how you got your name.").

Kevin Chapman has knocked his material out of the ballpark in the latest two episodes. His monologue at the end was incredible.

Shaw was a doctor!?!?

Reese's assault on the protective service hotel, his "3 minute" ultimatum, and Finch talking him down -- if I was Quinn, I would have scribbled the exit plan down, too.

And that ending! A well-kept surprise cameo that resulted in such a fine payoff.

This was Person of Interest at its absolute best.

Finch talking down Reese was perfect.

I thought Fusco's performance was tremendous when he decided to bring him in rather than off him.

Gotta love Root.

And it ended as it should have...

Elias: I'm not going to kill you. My friend is. I'm just going to watch.

Classic.

Couple things.

I didn't realize that Sarah Shahi was a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. Certainly had no idea that Shaw was a doctor.

I think Enrico Colantoni is a great actor. I remembered him from the Outer Limits episode Think Like a Dinosaur

Now, let's see if this series keeps my interest now that Carter is out of the picture.

I was going to make a joke about Johnny Cash ripping off Nine Inch Nails but it turns out that NIN's Trent Reznor actually wrote the song first and Cash adapted it.

Fans are saying that Chapman really earned an Emmy here.

Yeah, that came as a surprise. I liked that bit of background info we got and the character fascinates me even more.

The opening sequence with Johnny Cash singing is probably the best thing I've seen on tv all year.

Lesson to bad guys...do NOT piss off Elias. Just don't.

Re: Person of Interest Season 3

Finally got around to watching this. God DAMN, that was good. Fusco was awesome at the end. That man deserves an Emmy. I also loved that music montage at the beginning. Usually, when a TV show does that, I find it very very disjointed, taking me out of the show altogether. This one, however, worked very, very well. It was handled extremely well. This show continues to pleasantly surprise me, which is a rare thing with network shows these days.

Fantastic episode from start to finish. Although I am sad to see Carter go it was nice to see Fusco get some more screen time. His scenes have been pretty limited this season.

Re: Person of Interest Season 3

Wow. This thread sure has slowed sown. I guess it's to be expected with the holidays.

I watched the mid-season finale last night and it was really good. It seems the government didn't put all their eggs in one basket when it came to designing the machine. I wonder if Samaritan is actually out there in the wild.

Wasn't there a graphic at the very end of the episode that labeled Samaritan as "inactive" then changed to "unknown"?

I've always read that style of graphic as being the Machine's POV, so it stands to reason that if the Machine has a coordinate marked "Samaritan," then it must be more than theoretical. I'm definitely interested to see where they go with this second Machine on the show.

As for the episode itself, this was a great cliffhanger to leave us on for the holiday break. All of the business with Harold preserving his father's memories and the Machine being addressed as sentient and an AI -- this thread may have to be moved to the SF/F sub-forum in the new year.

Yes, now that I think back you are right. The status of Samaritan did change to unknown.

I wonder if they'll bring Reese and Fusco in to help bail out Shaw. I kind of hope not. I'd like to see Shaw get herself, Harold, and Arthur out of the mess on her own.

I think Root will be involved in getting Harold and Finch out of this.

Re: Person of Interest Season 3

I think Root has never really been caged, that she's been out of there and cam get out any time she wants but is staying there to reassure Finch. How else would she know what "She" wants? Root must be in contact with Her somehow.

I watched that last image, of Her searching for each of the "cancelled" projects and their status. Yes, Samaritan changed status.

Root must ride to the rescue of Shaw and Finch. She's the only one there to do so, and she'll do so on the orders of Her.
