Person Of Interest: ShOot, FuSh or MoRe?
Last episode from Person Of Interest “/” was impressive. It gave us that sparkling mix of mystery, mythology, humour, action and character development that only Person Of Interest seems to be able to pull of right now. There have been many Root haters, but they seem to come around a bit ...Read more

PERSON OF INTEREST: Season 3 Premiere Review.



WHOA! So glad to have POI back!

(Weirdly placed side-note: Anyone who uses a lower case "o" in the acronym is wrong! This isn't GoT, people. It just looks like you misspelled "Poll".)

Moving on!

If you had the patience to read one of my POI comments last season, you're probably aware I'm a little obsessive about certain aspects of this show. So you should know what I'm going to write about first...

THE MACHINE!

Or more specifically, predictions and squares (I used to call them boxes, but I've realized the Freudian error of my ways... It's a vagina thing).

Let's start with the beautiful final shot of The Machine's colour-coded decision tree that calculated the (constantly changing!) probabilities of all sorts of juicy predictions. The one interesting observation I'll make before I get all percentages crazy is that the entire ...Read more

My Idea and Hope for a Future Episode/Story Arc
Hey everyone, I am first going to write about which episode and character my idea came from, and why, than the follow up episode, and finally the story arc that develops from it.

The Origin episode:


Last season there was the all Finch episode where he went undercover as a high school math substitute teacher "2-Pi-R" There the POI was a teenage boy named Caleb, who, actually to Finch's surprise turns out to be a genius in math and computers equal, perhaps more than him, and Finch is THE best in the world. At the end Finch left Caleb with a way to contact him if he needed anything, and basically told him that he is the legendary "Hacker who got away"

I think 2_Pi-R is one of the best episodes of POI, and I have been hoping they would bring back Caleb. I'd just llike to say ...Read more

Person of Interest "Allegiance" Review: Pledge Carefully
A mediocre central story was bolstered by who else but Root and some fantastic Fusco humor.

The 5 Best Scenes from Person of Interest Season 2
#1 Say Hello to Samantha Shaw (Episode 16)
When I head that Sarah Shahi was going to guest star on Person of Interest I was ecstatic. Her chemistry with Damian Lewis on the completed underrated Life was as close to perfection as a pairing can get and I have been waiting for her to land a good show since then (Fairly Legal wasn’t my cup of tea). Not only did we get a guest starring role from her, but Jonathan Nolan also stepped in to direct an entire episode dedicated to the introduction of her character. It did not disappoint. I always assumed that our answer to what the government actually did with the real numbers would just be brushed off with a one liner or exposition somewhere down the line, never did I think that we would be treated to an episode that showed us how the “real ...Read more
