Browsing: PERSON OF INTEREST
Person of Interest seamlessly weaves a high-stakes mystery with some old faces. Shaw, John, and Fusco work their case while Harold and the Machine discuss scientific ethics. The episode hits just the right mix of cheese and smarts to make it an ideal example of what this show can do.
Person of Interest belabors the point with its sci-fi ethics lectures to push Harold to the brink. As a narrative turn just before the ultimate climax, it works but feels heavy-handed.
A double dose of Person of Interest provides two equally good sci-fi philosophy lessons. “QSO” explores the nature of free will and intelligence, while “Reassortment” looks at population dynamics and the ethics of following unethical orders. It’s deep, but it’s fun while it does it.
Person of Interest takes a mundane case of the week and interweaves it with every plotline that the season is juggling in “ShotSeeker.” Mafia, mystery, and warring artificial intelligences all mix together to create an enjoyable, relevant cocktail.
Person of Interest begins its fifth and final season where it left off, complete with its usual doses of action, adventure, and the ethical implications of technology. All in all, a promising start without shifting the series’ paradigm too drastically.
