[Spoilers] Person of Interest s05e11 Review : “Synecdoche”

Just when I thought P.O.I was getting interesting again, I got sucked into another boring episode. I know John and Shaw are a bit crazy but it’s almost as if they weren’t too sad about Root. When  Carter died they were both visible angry. Granted they’re busy with the Samaritan war…It would have been nice if they were visibly sad though.

Fusco, John and Shaw try to save an interesting target while Harold is enjoying conversation with the machine as well as threatening people without a gun. We should understand what he’s planning soon enough as we’re two episodes away from the finale.

Apparently the machine has other assets. And the writers made us believe she was weak all through this season. Good to know she has a lot of fight left in her. This moment made me feel like there may be a spin off after P.O.I…but if there were to be a spin off, won’t it be a bad idea and a complete replica of this series? Anyway till next week then.

[Spoilers ] Person of Interest s05e08 Review: “Reassortment”

“Reassortment” was definitely a personal favorite. As usual Samaritan is behind all the bad things happening. She has moved from using weapons to diseases. This episode succeeded in making me paranoid about getting vaccinated.
Anyway one good thing was that Harold’s machine had a minor win. Which got me thinking; are the writers going to give the machine a strong win at the end? Because I am doubting she can win any battle against Samaritan as the machine is not whole yet.

Shaw is still trapped but this episode’s simulation was exciting compared to the others because it reminded me of prison break. And how is Shaw still somewhat sane with all the mind simulations? I don’t even know which one is actually happening anymore. I will be extremely glad when she’s free. Samaritan as an antagonist feels like a mosquito buzzing around when one just wants to relax which is simply a nuisance.

[Spoilers] Person of Interest s05e07 Review:”QSO”

It feels as if this series is struggling and I don’t even feel energy or optimism from the characters. It’s almost as if the writers can’t revive the series at least not fully.
Fusco is angry at Harold and John. I don’t blame him. I have never understood why they haven’t told him the truth.  At least part of the truth so he doesn’t get himself in trouble or killed.
And Harold is disappointed in his machine as usual. I get his a perfectionist but I feel he has no right to complain since he ensured the machine was not perfect and extremely powerful. So the problem is with him, well he’s the only one that understands his logic.
