    A good show here tonight, but a bit underwhelming. Reese returning was quick and expected, but there was no reason to delay the inevitable I suppose.

    Sarah shahi is hot but dull and blah. Big mistake killing carter....
  • So much leaping around for what?

    I'm not too worry about the ratio of Reese/Shaw/Finch/Root/Fusco... it was just that this was easily the worst POI ever!

    The story didn't really fit with the overall tone of POI and the thief/gymnast (to coin a pun) was just 'lame' (and she can't act).



    POI has always punched above it's weight, script-wise, sometimes mixing pathos with tongue in cheek but this time it just plain missed the mark. Sad smiley face (first time I've had to give it a below average rating).moreless

    Too much Shaw, not enough Reese/Finch interaction, though the opening of the episode was promising. Of course Finch would jump at the chance to get his hands on the Gutenberg Bible. If nothing else, this episode was pretty high on my geek list, just because of the subject matter. Also, Finch with a 3D printer? Priceless. Mustache Reese, WTF? It's a bit of a different flavor from other episodes, but I'd be disappointed by now if PoI didn't keep me on my toes. I think the story was a little too big for the episode (and Reese getting them into the building for the Bible and then suddenly being in China, seriously?), but it was an interesting watch and the ending was sweet.moreless
  • Nice way to ease Reese back into the frey

    Fun show tonight with some interesting twists and turns to it. We needed a show that wasn't deadly serious in order for Reese to slip back into the group. I cried "widdle girl tears" when Reese poured a glass of Scotch for Carter and the last shot of the show featured her glass. ~sigh~ NICE touch that the creators of the show realize the fans still mourn her loss, unlike Julian Fellowes barely mentioning the mega-death of Mathew on Downton Abby. I also thought that the Interpol man was going to be a bad guy; nice that he had a heart and helped Lin escape. I liked the show: I can suspend ANY amount of disbelief for something I love. Hey, I still believe in the Easter Bunny and Santa! LOLmoreless
