    I have to admit, I have become quite addicted to this show. I find it fascinating. And the fall season finale...WOW. I confess I didn't take to the Carter character at first, but she has grown on me. And Fusco is funny. :lol:

    I am. Been watching since the beginning of the season mainly due to wanting to see
    Michael Emerson. I like the dynamic between the 2 men. It'll be interesting to see if Carter starts helping.

    Yes, I like it. I also like Prime Suspect, so Thurs is good. :)

    Yeayy. A Person of Interest thread on FSU! I kept seeing threads for other new shows and thinking, does no one like Person of Interest? I also watched it from the first episode but didn't start getting invested until that fantastic ending from episode 4 (will he or won't he kill the banker?). Since then I have gradually become completely obsessed! I love the subtle humor in the show and how Reese's mad Jack Bauer skills contrasts with his quiet, polite, understated manner. When Reese was stumbling down the stairs at the end of the fall finale, Finch worriedly says he's been trying to call him and Reese responds, "Yeah, I've been kind of busy" (no kidding!). The writers have done a great job giving us little tidbits about the characters with each episode. It's interesting to see the relationship develop between Reese and Finch. They are such guarded and private characters (esp. Finch), and yet you see them really growing to care about each other. I highly recommend the fabulously snarky (which is something we FSUers surely appreciate) recaps at http://www.tvgasm.com/category/recaps/person-of-interest-recaps/

    Love it! I wasn't sure at first, but it is really growing on me. Anyone know when we will get new episodes?

    Me! And I love all the Lost alumn appearing (e.g. Goodwin was Finch's partner and Widmore was the baddie of the week at one point).

    BTW, one of my highlights from comic con was getting an autograph from the cast and chatting up Michael Emerson

    I am a LOST and 24 show fan so I have been watching this show to catch the actors. I find the show is improving with the bits added on the history of the characters. Trying to figure out the puzzle.

    There've been one or two threads here before, but they've drifted off the main page.

    I love that too. Especially when he's teasing Fusco. :)

    I'm not as exicited to see it each week as I am Once Upon a Time or Misfits, but I haven't missed an episode yet. I watch it on Friday, if I miss it on Thursday night. I love Michael Emerson and I wish they'd give us more of him and his backstory.

    Jim is easy on the eye, and I like the way he plays his character, and they are also giving him a good backstory.

    Carter and co, I'm just beginning to feel them fit into the show. The last episode was a big improvement for me.

    The only thing that bugs me is how often the bad guys could have killed Reese. It seems like every episode they just fail to kill him in time.

    If they killed him it would kind of ruin the show;)

    I'm hoping for that too. The character is fascinating.

    I love the show. Emerson and Caviezel are great together, I can't wait to learn more about them. Fusco and Carter are developing, and the CIA agent seems interesting.
    I think one has to be patient with this show, things will come in time. I hope the creators/producers have a good plan and will not react to what seems popular or pressure from the higher ups.

    Whoever does the music selection for this show deserves a round of applause. I have become a fan of UNKLE because of it. When Things Explode is a great song.

    Every time this happens I just think to myself, "well, that's what they get for trying to kill Jesus."

    Tonight's episode was just -- wow. Finch! And Carter! And Ingram! And FINCH!! :D I love Reese, and his Rear Window act was terrific, but it's so great when Finch gets a chance to shine.

    I didn't hear until last night that the show won its People's Choice Award. I voted for it, so I'm so glad! :cheer2:

    Sp Ingram was the betrayer! (Or at least that is what it seems).

    An aside: I was never a Lost fan. I tried three episodes and could not get into it. But after awhile, (2 years or so?) all I kept hearing was Michael Emerson this, Michael Emerson that. I knew his Ben Linus character must have been something special.

    Watching this show, I am seeing what all the fuss was about. ME rocks!

    Is that a spoiler? It should have spoiler tags if it is.

    Is what a spoiler? That Ingram might be the betrayer? No. If you watch the last episode, it showed a flashback when Ingram was meeting with the government guys. Then it pans to the machine pulling up Ingram's number. Now given the premise of the show, the machine pulled his number because he was either a victim (he's dead in the present day) or he was the perpretrator. It has yet to play out.

    No, what missflick said about Finch not being the kid's uncle. (I mean, I know he's not REALLY the kid's uncle, but she sounds like she has knowledge beyond that. Like he's really his father or something.)

    I don't have any knowledge beyond that, but Nathan called Finch "friend" in a previous episode.

    Oh, well, that doesn't mean anything. My best friend's kids call me "auntie" even though I'm not a relative. It's a pretty common thing.

    Your wording, with the "buahaha," made me think there was a big secret about Finch actually being the kid's father or something!

    Next week's preview and spoilers have me all tied up in knots already!
    I heard that Finch and Grace won't get together, but I'm hoping SO HARD she at least finds out he's alive. I know I shouldn't get my hopes up, but I want them together so badly. :wuzrobbed

    Glad to see Carrie Preston's (Mrs. Michael Emerson) character back; I'd like to see more of Grace and Harold's relationship (although she thinks he's dead!).
