    New plot

    By astrodus, 18 hours ago

    A quite good episode for the upcoming ones. It is again the beginning of an end, I like it.

    Ok there was not much action in this one, but there will be, as told. The storyline is ones again being build up, soon there will be a qlimax where a main character will be killed of... My guess is Shawn..

    Still decent

    By JDH73, Dec 10, 2014

    The 1st season was great, but each year has gotten a bit less spectacular as they pull away from the original premise of what the show sold us on.

    That being said, when they really get their stuff together for an episode or 2, its still at the top of the game. Carters murder last year, the ep where Scarface gets killed shows that the show can still grab you & keep you tuned in sometimes.

    More shocking to me is.... although it took what, 2 years to happen, I don't really hate Shaw anymore. She was insufferable & pointless for the 1st year & a 1/2. Now she at least has either grown on me finally. Still my least favorite character, but at least I don't hate her anymore.moreless

    Not quite there

    By HWBOD, Nov 19, 2014

    I'm a huge POI fan but this particular episode I thought was less well written than many... the possible romance between Shaw and the thief guy was laboured and Root's inquiries and interest a bit heavy handed... there were also a couple of continuity problems... and not enough Reese.



    Still enjoyable enough and moved the plot forward.... but not as slick and entertaining as usual. One of POI best qualities is it's 'smarts' and this episode may have been dropped on it's head while being penned ;-)moreless

    POI Just Continues to Get Better

    By Brahmin1951, Nov 01, 2014

    And it was great to begin with. continues his fascination with the idea of stories that strain our definition of just who the enemy really is. The dialogue is sharp and never wasted. The stories themselves are complete within themselves, and yet the greater story evolves and traps you into really caring about all these characters, and, yes, Bear too! This is a show that is definitely set in the possible now, but is not afraid to examine the consequences of where we are all heading, into a horrifying future of our own creation. If you're looking for humor, it's here. If you're looking for mystery, it's here. If you're looking for a techno-thriller, it's here. Most of all, Person is a show that involves each one of us. If you've seen all the seasons, and you still don't feel involved, you're not paying attention.moreless

    Pretenders has it ALL.

    By insideout098, Oct 30, 2014

    It's almost impossible to find a show with everything, but this one nails it. This episode, Pretenders, has it all: action, comedic breaks, great continuity, no wasted dialog or drawn out interpersonal scenes. Just twists and turns everywhere. The funniest bit of dialog is when the fake detective asks Reese "how he does that with his voice?" Hysterical. Great show.

    A show with heart, brains and a lot of fun

    By b4bs83, Oct 24, 2014

    Season 1 of person of interest is a slow burn techno thriller, that at first glance could be dismissed as just another series that takes the big brother conspiracy theory that someone is always watching to new heights. What eventually shines through is a story with heart that is championed by Michael Emerson's portrayal of Harold Finch. While Caviezel may be the big Hollywood draw card designed to bring viewers to the series, it is Emerson's Finch that brings you back week after week as you learn what drives this mysterious benefactor to help the helpless. I will admit, season 1 at times feels very procedural and offers more questions then answers, but as the show progresses, and as the several plot threads begin to develop, Person of Interest becomes one of those shows you don't want to miss. With Taraji Henson, the extremely underrated Kevin Chapman and the additions of Amy Ackers, Sarah Shahi, Person of Interest is a show with brains, but is so much fun and doesn't take itself too seriously at the same time. If your reading this Person of Interest is possibly the best TV show you are not watching right now.moreless
