  • Root is the root cause of POI's down turn.

    3.0
    The Root character Is ridiculous! She was a good villain but she sucks as a good guy. Also how does she go from being a hacker to a trained killer. She has become the tough guy on the show. John it the hero, everyone else are sidekicks. They need to get back the shows base story. Kill Root and Samaritan off and get Shaw back.
  • Comparing Last to earlier Seasons.

    7.0
    I guess the fascination of my POI was about the characters. You see, while we were learning about the machine and the story on earlier seasons, we were also learning about the characters. Both were intertwined. The introduction of Root, her past, why she wanted to reach machine. Now those characters are mostly settled, there seems to be no exploring. I believe the writers are struggling too. There were some nice stories this season but they really can not go near season 2 at all. Every show eventually reaches a point that the premise is largely lost and the story is so large the cost is FOCUS.moreless
  • Are the machines actually warring?

    4.0
    This season of POI has been a real disappointment. This "war" between the AI's has been a joke. Computers functioning on the level of the Machine and Samaritan would have resolved the conflict in days. If not faster, these things function on the microsecond level, minutes are forever for these things.

    One important point that is completely glossed over is the Machine is IN Samaritan. So once the two realized they could not co-exist the Machine should have reset the spin rates on drives, voltage regulators, temperature controls on controls and literally cooked Samaritan. This would have happened so fast by the time any human realized what was going on and thought WTF it would have been over.

    Conversely Samaritan has access to massive resources and would have done a brute force search and found and eliminated the Machine.

    So this entire season was a colossal waste of time and exercise in plot convenience nothing more. So when this season finishes and if there is no resolution between the AI's conflict I am done with this show.

    Sadly this show has the potential to last several more seasons but only if they move on and start advancing the story again. As it stands now it stagnant and beginning to die a slow painful death due to lack of story advancement.

    My advice fire the writers and get some who understand how fast AI's would function and resolve the war and move on with new stories. The Machine helping society is way more interesting than this war. Especially when the war is more a phoney war...

    Anyhow that is my thoughts on the matter. Cheersmoreless
  • the machine has been letting me down

    6.0
    This show has been one of my favorite shows in recent memory. However, this season hasnt been that stellar. Now, while ill admit that im still upset that sarah shahi hasnt been around, they have been faltering. Its my hope that theyre going to put the warring machines back into play soon.

    I used to say it jokingly, but you really do need to seek help.

    Once again you say you've lost interest, yet you have continued to come here and spout the same gibberish for well over a year now.

    The producers said they were going to try and bring back Henson for Carter flashback stuff shortly after they killed her.

    Get a a good therapist to help you finally move on with your life, that is if you still have one that doesn't involve POI and Tarajimoreless
  • OH, SNAP!

    Person of Interest "Asylum" Review: The Inmates Are In Control

    A pep talk from an electrocardiogram highlighted an action-packed and suspenseful episode.

    Person of Interest "Terra Incognita" Review: Touched By a Cookie Angel

    I'm of two minds when it comes to "Terra Incognita," a slow, emotional, conversational episode of Person of Interest that was unlike anything the series has ever done before.
