    Ugh, POI. I really hope it was Taraji's decision to leave the show. :( :blah:
    Now the new female characters brought in make some sense.

    ^^ She was just on Letterman tonight and talked about that. Yes, she knew when she took the part that would be the eventual outcome. They had her storyline all plotted out from the beginning. That's one of the reason's she took it. She wanted to do TV but didn't want to be tied to a series for too long since she is more involved in making movies.

    She may have known, but it sure took me by SURPRISE! :eek:

    Yes, I've heard that she knew. But it still SUCKS. :( I hate character deaths. (Well, most of the time. If Root died I'd break out the champagne and throw a party. Annoying psycho jackass.)

    I didn't think the kiss -- which was unscripted, I hear! -- was contrived. I think the contrived part was when Reese gave her all the credit for bringing him back from the brink. He's always given all the credit to Finch before, as Finch was the one who actually rescued him and gave him a job and a purpose! When I heard them retcon it like that, I KNEW Carter was going to die. They might as well have put a giant flashing neon sign saying "UPCOMING DEATH RIGHT HERE!" above her head.

    I'm sad Nikita is going bye bye. :( Most people don't know about it or assume it sucks b/c it's on the CW but the show had really great writing and great actors as well. The first two seasons were excellent and last season had its moments as well though it wasn't as great as the first two. I hope they wrap everything up with a satisfying ending.

    I have a great fondness for Nikita and the cast. I am really looking forward to it starting.

    Was this the whole interview on Letterman? I guess they did too good a job with the Carter character, then. I'm not sure how the show will work for me without her, although it's good to know she wasn't pushed out to make way for the others.

    That's just a quick clip. She was on longer than that; typical 5-6 minutes the last guest on a talk show usually gets.

    Person of Interest really got me good with Cater's death. It was one of the very few times I was totally taken by surprise by a tv show/movie.

    Preempted for a JFK special.

    It gave me a chance to check out "Nikita"'s last season. "Nikita" only has a 6 episode season.

    Yay and expected for Scandal and TBBT. GA... My lord, somebody, knock down the show already. Please stop my agony... This show is giving the fans a big something after their loyal 10 years:( All the magic is gone, gone, long gone and it really has turned to be a new low.

    If anyone finds a BBC America premiere date for Ripper Street, let me know, will you? The press releases (from the summer) say Dec. 1, but it's not on their website schedule.
