Today I (re)watch: Person of Interest, 2.22

The season 2 finale! Easily on my top 5 of POI season finales (geddit? ’cause POI has only 5 seasons, and all its finales are fucking phenomenal!).
‘Zero Day’ and ‘God Mode’ act as two parts of the same episode, and we left the first part off with the following:
The Machine makes a call to both John and Root, who are now both on god mode with her. A phone threesome, if you will. Carter is framed as a bad cop who shoots people for no reason, Harold reluctantly teams up with Root to save the Machine, and Shaw and John are left to following them around like very attractive and skilled puppies.

I have watched the whole show before, so SPOILERS MIGHT HAPPEN. Big spoilers will be blanked out but references and irrelevant spoilers are going to be out in the open.

Today I (re)watch: Person of Interest, 2.21

HOLY SHIT, we’ve arrived at the 2-part season finale. It’s such a journey, that I don’t know how I’m going to pack it all in. Let’s go.

The Machine appears to have shut down or something by the virus Kara uploaded, so it creates a fake person instead. So Harold and  John are trying to find this non-existent person, and Root is back, because she is interested in getting to Harold and The Machine, and Sameen Shaw is back, because she is interested (don’t say it, don’t say it) in Root.

The opening credits get interrupted with random symbols and more BSoDs! The Machine is clearly a Lil’ Stressed. Poor little AI, that flu of hers is getting outta hand.

Woah, we are so close to the double-feature season 2 finale. Can y’all believe?! And it’s gonna hurt soooo good.

‘In Extremis’ has some very good, some very weird, and some very stressful. A lot of ups and downs, we’ll see how the review goes.
On the one hand, we get a very Fusco-centric episode which I had been waiting for since the dawn of time. That was amazing, and stressful but in a good way, and gave way for great character development for Carter too, and for their friendship.
On the other hand, the number of the week is not likeable enough to carry his own plot successfully, in my opinion.
And on yet another, third alien hand, Reese and especially Finch act kind of out of character. Or really out of character, depending on who you ask.

CW brief emotional abuse

Today I (re)watch: Person of Interest, 2.16

This episode is one of the most, uh, relevant (get it? ’cause the episode is called Relevance? anyway) to my life as a television lover. And as a queer woman, to be honest. What I’m about to review changed my life. Sit tight, ’cause I’m about to write the first of many installments of love letters to Sarah Shahi.

I am screaming internally just thinking about reviewing this episode. Let’s begin.

Wheee! You made it to Season 2. What a time to be alive and watch television and let fiction consume your very soul.
This is a long one. There is so much going on! It’s so great though. Harold is kidnapped by Root and taken on a road trip, while John gets a fabulous number to save.

I like this episode okay, although it is about stalking and stalking makes me feel very ill.

This episode’s number is Ernie Trask (played by David Zayas, from Dexter! I love him!), a superintendent that seems to be particularly interested in a young chef, Lily, who lives in his building.

TW for discussion of stalking, violence against women (both in the episode and this review)

 And now for something completely different… WELCOME to my Person of Interest reviews. I’m going to be writing semi-regular reviews of one of my favorite shows ever, because it is ending in the next few weeks and I am in denial. Let’s do this.

John Reese: When you find that one person who connects you to the world, you become someone different, someone better. When that person is taken from you, what do you become then?
