Person of Interest 4.02 Nautilus Thoughts

If you haven’t seen the episode yet you aren’t going to want to read this.

I found the continuation of the Finch not really wanting to help storying line to be very interesting but to be honest I’m about at the point of where I was when Carter died and John was moping about. It’s very funny to see the roles flipped though in this episode because John was the “boss” while Finch was the “employee”. And good on John. I mean seriously Finch can’t spend so many weeks convincing John about the importance of this work and then just throw it away because the Machine was trying to protect itself and the team by having someone killed. Sometimes in life people die for the greater good. John understood that which is why he did the work he did. So did Shaw. And yeah sometimes it’s abused to kill people who aren’t innocent, and that’s what really got John all disillusioned but it’s not like the Machine is asking them to do it all the time (although who knows what it’s having Root do?).

But nothing like a really smart woman to get Finch to see the importance of the work they do. If not to save the Irrelevant numbers he needs to save the smart people so that Samaritan can’t build an army against the Machine and against them basically.

The new “hideout” is cool. I think that’s what’s cool about this show is that the places they find are amazing. Like who thought of this, was someone like reading and went, “Hey this would be perfect!”

I do have a question someone mentioned the 9 million grant funded to Harold for his dissertation. Last night he referenced not having all that money like before (which I’m confused why the money had to go away anyhow it’s not like he had all his money wrapped up under the Finch area and I would think they could have quickly withdrawn or hid most of it but hey it’s a TV show) but doesn’t he have 9 million in the bank for this dissertation?

I’m enjoying John working as a cop. I think it’s hilarious to see. I think it’s also cool because that means more Fusco!

I think this show was to showcase how little control Decima has over Samaritan. I don’t believe that they think they controlled Samaritan it was pretty obvious that Samaritan was brought online and then allowed to do whatever it wanted. But it shows the viewer that it is not dependent on anyone to get what it needs done. Samaritan is a AI working with no rules and no real “moral” code to guide it. It’s doing what it wants because it wants it, which is dangerous. The Machine had rules, “morals” which is why it’s behaved so differently. Samaritan wasn’t taught to care, which is what makes it dangerous.

Next week is full on Fusco. I think Fusco has an idea about the Machine, especially with how mouthy John was in referencing it during last season. Fusco just has kept quiet and I think that’s kept him off the radar and safe. But it’s going to be fun seeing him more involved. It’s a very cool character, brings a bit of lightness to the seriousness sometimes but also a in your face kind of guy, who will say it as it is when needed.

Person of Interest 4.01 Panopticon Ratings

Initial ratings are in and frankly they are about where they’ve always been. I hate the demo and how ratings are calculated because Chicago Fire wins the night in the demo even though it didn’t have as many viewer. At the 10PM hour more people watched Person of Interest than Chicago Fire. But because more youngins watched Chicago Fire it technically wins the night. There needs to be a serious rework of ratings and how advertisers look at people. Just because you’re over a certain age doesn’t mean you don’t spend money. Hell it means you have more to spend than the youngins. But advertisers haven’t caught on to that fact yet.

That being said, the top three shows on last night viewer wise (although the Voice currently doesn’t have it’s viewer numbers up) were NCIS, NCIS: NO and Person of Interest. So congrats to CBS for having the most watched shows on Tuesday!

I’m pretty confident when final numbers are released as well as you 7+ viewer data, which counts DVR watches and online watching, the number of viewers will probably increase by about 30% or so.

Thanks to Spoiler TV for the info. You can look at all of the numbers here.

To all those worried about whether Forever would take away viewers, it didn’t do very well itself in the viewer area.

Person of Interest 4.01 Panopticon Thoughts

I decided to rename this recap post to thoughts because I have to write them the day after due to having to work in the morning so staying up much past 11pm isn’t an option. This means I’ll forget some things until I have time to watch the show again. If you haven’t seen the show, please don’t continue to read this post. There will be spoilers ahead. Don’t say I didn’t tell you so.

So the beginning of the show graphics had changed a little bit. We didn’t get an opening credits which is standard to not get on the premiere. It’s been said that episode two will show the new opening and it will be different. At that time I’ll probably update my website as well to reflect them.

This show was interesting because it really flipped the roles between Harold and John. It’s funny because not a few months before, Harold was trying to convince John to come back because every number is important even if you can’t help them all. Now here we are with Harold basically given up, for whatever reason, and John trying to convince him to come back.

I found Root’s “suck it up” speech to him to be very good and very important. He seemed angry that the Machine refuses to speak to him but he doesn’t seem to acknowledge these are the rules he put on it, and the Machine does follow Harold’s rules to an extend. Plus I’m pretty confident if Harold said, “Hey that rule doesn’t apply.” The Machine would be all over “talking” to him. And The Machine technically does talk to him outside of just numbers, but as Root said, Harold doesn’t listen.

The Machine is obviously very clever in it’s methods of communication and getting it’s message to the people it wants to get messages to.

It will be interesting to see how this John and Fusco partnership will work out. I now suddenly understand some of the new characters that will be introduced soon. I’m looking forward to getting back to the ass kicking and number protecting and it seems to me that Fusco is almost going to play a more active role in this season which is very nice.

I’m sure I’ll have more thoughts once I watch the episode over again. I found it to be good. It was all Person of Interest should be. I’m looking forward to where they go with things in regards to Samaritan. Should be a wild season!
