"Person of Interest" said goodbye to one of its own in last week's "The Crossing," and no one on the CBS drama was going to take that death lying down. But the person who finally took Simmons' life as revenge surprisingly wasn't the person who brought the Hr member to justice, and wasn't even someone we expected.
"The Devil's Share" was a lovely way to send Carter off as the characters on "Person of Interest" all wrestled with her death. From Finch and Reese to Fusco and Elias, the many people whose lives Carter touched remembered her with a respect that caused them to not compromise who they are. For Fusco, that meant arresting Simmons instead of killing him. For Reese, he didn't kill Quinn. For Elias -- admittedly not the most stand-up of men -- he had one of his men kill Simmons because he liked Carter quite a bit. »
Michael Emerson is no stranger to being on a successful show with a complicated plot, having spent five seasons as creepy Others leader Ben Linus on Lost. On Person of Interest, Emerson applies his signature air of mystery — along with a limp — to play genius tech billionaire Harold Finch. But unlike Ben, Finch is the hero, using his skills and the Machine, the computer system he built that predicts future crimes, to track down villains with former CIA agent John Reese (Jim Caviezel).
And as the drama continues its third season, Finch is having trouble with the Machine as it »

(Cbr) After appearing at the "Person of Interest" panel at New York Comic Con, stars Jim Caviezel, Kevin Chapman, Taraji P. Henson, Amy Acker and Sarah Shahi joined Executive Producer and showrunner Greg Plageman to talk with reporters about the hit CBS crime drama. The thriller follows ex-cia agent John Reese (Caviezel) and billionaire genius Harold Finch (Michael Emerson) as they use a computer system — referred to as “the Machine” — that can predict violent acts to secretly try to stop the crimes before they happen. The third season sees a new status quo, and a move to a new »

Amongst other things (like the fact that they were generally just great shows, for example), the Buffyverse television shows – Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel – were renowned for their attractive casts.
There were cast members to appeal to all demographics, but there was a particular emphasis on beautiful women; Sarah Michelle Gellar as the titular Buffy Summers, Eliza Dushku as rogue slayer Faith Lehane, Alyson Hannigan as the lesbian witch Willow Rosenberg, Amy Acker as science geek Fred Burkle, Charisma Carpenter as cheerleader turned team Angel member Cordelia Chase and Emma Caulfield as ex-demon Anya Jenkins to name but a few.
But the main cast members weren’t the only attractive females on the show – not by a long shot.
With that in mind, »

Person of Interest, Season 3, Episode 6, “Mors Praematura”
Written by Dan Sietz
Directed by Helen Shaver
Airs Tuesdays at 10pm Et on CBS
The driving force behind Person of Interest is its greatest strength and its biggest potential weakness. Having an all-knowing Machine at the foreground is, in one breath, a fantastic expositional tool that can push the story forward with ease and cause serious problems in the villain department. What danger can any person pose to a Machine that can predict your actions and easily stop you? None, that’s what. That being said, a show like this has to raise the bar on what a normal person could do to something like The Machine. Person of Interest might be on the way to that.

When last we tuned into CBS’ Person of Interest (Tuesdays, 10/9c), Shaw got a blast from the past — in the former of young Poi who evoked memories of her own sad childhood — and then she received a jolt in the present, when at episode’s end Root roused her from slumber with a stun gun. Sarah Shahi, who like Amy Acker became a series regular this season, spoke with TVLine about the latest intel on Shaw, shared her theories on the fierce femme’s private life and teased the reason behind her Root awakening.

Root is out of the psych ward and ready to rock! On tonight's Person of Interest, Amy Acker's undeniably devious, possibly crazy cybercrusader has a long-awaited showdown with — and then teams up alongside — Sarah Shahi's cold-blooded supersoldier, Samantha Shaw. "Shaw knows that when she's with Root, s--t's gonna go down," Shahi says. "One or both of them will wind up in the hospital, but it's gonna be fun."

On tonight's new episode Person of Interest episode, Finch, Reese and especially Shaw will come face-to-face with someone who challenges them in a brand new way.
And that someone is a 10-year old girl.
In “Razgover" - written by David Slack - Samantha Shaw is tasked with watching over Genrika (played by Danielle Kotch), who The Machine has identified as the latest Person of Interest. Turns out, the kid has some mad surveillance skills, which Shaw realizes could be the reason her number has come up.
“This is pretty much my turn at being Jean Reno in The Professional,” Shahi said, referencing the 1994 movie that launched the career of then-child Natalie Portman. “Shaw and this 10-year-old girl are paired up together »

When filmmaker Joss Whedon decided to take on Shakespeare for Much Ado About Nothing, now out on Blu-ray/DVD, the result was a contemporary and charming spin that was shot in just 12 days, in and around his house. The story of sparring lovers Beatrice (Amy Acker) and Benedick (Alexis Denisof) is a series of comic and tragic events that offer a dark, sexy and, at times, absurd view of the game of love. The film also stars Clark Gregg, Nathan Fillion, Fran Kranz, Sean Maher, Reed Diamond, Tom Lenk and Jillian Morgese. During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, to promote the film’s release on Blu-ray, DVD and digital, actress Amy Acker talked about how surprised and excited she was about the reaction to the film, how nervous she was about her first meeting with Joss Whedon, back when she auditioned for Angel, that he still has the »

TV Fanatic was on the red carpet of Comic-Con in New York City this week and got to spend a few minutes with various cast members from Person of Interest.
What's on tap for Shaw and Root? How does Amy Acker portray the latter without going overboard on the crazy? How much darker might things get for the characters? Watch the following Q&A with Acker and Sarah Shahi for some answers:
Greg Plageman, meanwhile, is the showrunner behind this CBS hit and he says we can expect something "extreme" from Carter in the coming episodes, while Taraji P. Hensen teases more of a look into her detective's background as we move ahead on Person of Interest Season 3:

This season, CBS has moved Person of Interest to Tuesday nights. Will the ratings fall off as a result or will they grow because of a stronger lead-in? Let's wait and see.
On Person of Interest, former CIA officer John Reese (Jim Caviezel) and billionaire Harold Finch (Michael Emerson) continue to work together to prevent violent crimes in the Big Apple. Taraji P. Henson, Kevin Chapman, Sarah Shahi, and Amy Acker round out the cast.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

When Person of Interest first started, it had a simple cast of Reese and Finch (Jim Caviziel and Michael Emerson, respectively) being hunted every week by Taraji P. Henson. This has now transformed to a full roster of characters (assets)-many of them women- that the show has its disposal. “Lady Killer” drives this point home time and time again when Reese and Finch receive a number from a regular Casanova, a real “lady killer” (get it, guys?) who they suspect might be a stalker/serial killer. To find out for themselves, they bait the waters with Carter, Shaw (Sarah Shahi), and political fixer Zoe Morgan (Paige Turco). While Reese and Finch are focused on the new number, Root (Amy Acker) is continuing her crazy-person-athon at the »

Call them Finch's Angels.
Sam Shaw, Joss Carter and Zoe Morgan had their time to shine on Person of Interest this week, as the bevy of beauties donned sexy club attire, excitedly compared weapons and left the boys to play backup. Nothing quite like a ladies night, right?
Using the femme fatale trio as bait on "Lady Killer," the Machine pulled up a number for a Boston playboy who teetered on the lines of stalker/killer and just plain overly attentive.
It was nice to see Warren Kole as the focus, especially since he's played a bad guy on Fox's The Following and a good guy on USA's short-lived Common Law. It wasn't easy to tell which way his character, Ian Murphy, would fall, although the ominous music played tried to convince viewers when he was holding a knife or following Carter.
Except the real truth was about familial lineage and social class. »

Even after seasons of watching "Person of Interest," there's something incredibly validating about seeing yet another person realize that the Machine is actually real. In the case of tonight's episode, "Lady Killer," it's the psychiatrist who Root was dealing with in the Season 3 premiere that finally got to see the Machine at work.
After being absent in episode 2, "Nothing To Hide," Root broke free from the mental institution in "Lady Killer" just like she had promised she would. If there was any doubt that the Machine actually is aiding Amy Acker's character, then that was cleared up in tonight's episode. The Machine really does have a plan that Root is carrying out on its behalf, and Finch has been cled into that.
There was some serious panic in Harold Finch's face when he realized that Root escaped, but the real question is whether or not he realized that »
Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week:
What's It About? Joss Whedon's ("The Avengers") modern retelling of the Shakespeare classic follows two couples with different takes on romance. Benedick (Alexis Denisof) and Beatrice (Amy Acker) are older and disdainful of their love, while the sweet young Claudio (Fran Kranz) and Hero (Jillian Morgese) are deeply absorbed by their love.
Why We're In: Whedon's "Much Ado About Nothing" is a refreshing and charming take on the classic comedy for its unique blending of the Shakespearian dialogue with a contemporary setting and aesthetic. While it sticks to the original content and doesn't add anything wholly revolutionary, it's nonetheless an entertaining addition to the canon of Shakespeare film adaptations.

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. Much Ado About Nothing Leonato’s (Clark Gregg) home is visited by fellow dignitary Don Pedro and his two immediate officers, Benedick (Alexis Desinof) and Claudio (Fran Kranz). The latter falls in love with Leonato’s daughter Hero, while the former has a friction-filled and antagonistic past with the man’s niece Beatrice (Amy Acker). It’s not all foreplay and country matters, though, as Don Pedro’s manipulative brother, Don John (Sean Maher), is intent on disrupting political relations by destroying relationships. Let the romantic hijinx begin! William Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy comes to life yet again, and it’s the best screen incarnation yet. Joss Whedon can be hit or miss at times, but when he’s on the result can be pretty damn incredible. His »

To some, Joss Whedon doing Shakespeare is as random a notion as Michael Bay directing a Chekhov play. Whedon, known for his outstanding work on television shows and films such as Firefly, Dollhouse, The Avengers, and Serenity, seems like one of the last people who would suddenly slip over into the realm of the Bard’s classic repertoire of plays, but lo and behold, even with his extremely busy schedule on The Avengers, Whedon took 12 days to put together a modernized telling of Much Ado About Nothing, using his own house, a group of friends, a limited budget, and the high hopes that this wouldn’t turn out to be just a silly little home movie.
The story involves a group of soldiers returning from battle led by Don Pedro (Reed Diamond). After his reconciliation with his brother, Don John (Sean Maher), they have decided to stay at the home of a friend, »

I’ve been down with what is either an incredibly horrible cold or what technically would be considered a mild flu since last Tuesday, although “mild” is definitely not in the eyes of the sufferer – achy and sore, exhausted just doing nothing but unable to sleep enough to wake up feeling like I slept, coughing up disgusting stuff from inside my chest, a nose that is either stuffed or running depending on the time of day, alternately hungry and nauseous in the same minute…
Anyway, my brain is definitely not completely “there” this week, but here are some thoughts.
So far not terrifically excited by Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. I thought the pilot episode was basically meh and if it wasn’t for the involvement of the combined powerhouse of the McU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) and Joss Whedon it would never have been picked up by ABC, much less been given a full season of episodes. »

★★★★☆ A parade of familiar faces from the television work of Joss Whedon - including the long-running success Buffy the Vampire Slayer, its patchy spin-off Angel, the short-lived Firefly and the controversial Dollhouse - fill out the cast of Whedon's big screen adaptation of William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. Shot in just two weeks between the completion of principal photography and the start of post-production on Avengers Assemble (2012), Whedon's interpretation of the story is an intimate take on the material, falling somewhere between a screwball comedy and a stylish film noir.
Much Ado concerns the relationships of two distinct couples: the young pair Claudio (Fran Kranz) and Hero (Jillian Morgese) and the sharp-tongued Beatrice (Amy Acker) and Benedick (Alexis Denisof). As the evil Don John (Sean Maher) schemes to keep the former from each other, Beatrice and Benedick wage a "merry war" that consists mostly of putting each other down with the utmost wit. »
