Person of Interest has been White Washed
What a disappointment to find one of our favorite characters killed off in the last episode. We really enjoyed watching the show over the years and Detective Carter has been one of our favorites. There are less and less African-American role models on tv. Detective Carter was a strong, intelligent, attractive black woman with a great career. Which is why its so disappointing to find CBS killing off a great role model. Thinking about it, one by one, blacks have disappeared from this show. Perhaps its an indication that this one's not for us.moreless
It seems writers for great series like person of interest or even Dexter feel the need to give their show "depth" by killing off characters that you get attached to over several seasons. Where is it written that this is a good thing? What's the bloody point, it does not serve any constructive purpose.
From the beginning, Person of Interest felt like a show that I could watch to have fun, and where the good guys would always win, even if they got beat up quite a bit. It does not spice things up, it just makes me sad, and I'm more than a bit frustrated at how they managed to turn all that fun upside down.
Really, killing off a key character at the end of the episode on a stray bullet, and within just a few seconds? The writers tried too hard to bring us something unexpected - instead they botched up the whole series.
I won't be buying any more of this, I am fed up with this artificial brainf***.moreless
As for the show additions: Love Root. Still think Shaw needs to bring it down a notch.
Are we only allowed one review per episode? I couldn't find a way to add a new one; just to "edit" this one.
Anyway. I totally agree with the review by Chancho. Show is going all over the place and getting away from what made it so successful to begin with. Hate when they change directions like that. Same thing happened with Dark Angel. It was successful at first; they changed direction. And the show ended up crappy and canceled. Stick with a good thing people!moreless
DVD follower of Person of Interest.................
behind you live viewers. The Crossing was so full of impossible situations I grew weary. The morgue is surrounded - and then it wasn't. A miracle !! Several that way. The end of the episode smoothed out so quickly from total mayhem - ridiculous. No way Fusco comes back from multiple broken fingers for such a heroic response, Yes, its TV - but give me a break and leave a fragment of believability somewhere. Carter dead - tells me the new romance could not work. I'll stop.....moreless
I usually love the show. I watch TV to escape the bad things in life. On TV good guys WIN! They don't get killed. If I wanted true life I'd watch the news or 60 minutes all day. Keep it simple. Good guys win. I'd love to watch 'the following' show but the good guys NEVER win. Writers just have it backwards on that one.
Score for show is when I pretend Carter didn't get killed.
Now get rid of the PMS chick and the show will be better
Carter is the black detective who talks in some form of Ebonics. Why can't there be a male lead Detective just once? Carter is totally redundant to the program, They had Detective Lionel Fusco who is playing the same role as Carter. Why do they have to force her, a ghetto black woman, in as an equal to Reese, a trained CIA killer?
I suspect it is to play to the urban poor woman as one of their market segments. Thank goodness for focus groups to drive program scripts.
Why just why please explain to me what good this does for the show?
I think many people will hate this and many people will stop watch the show because of this!
I just do not understand why when you can go all different directions with the show.
Really not necessary to kill of Carter!!!!!!!!!!!!!
