With Hr rebuilding, a mysterious organization revealed, a new female super spy added to the team, and Root still trying to find the Machine, it's a wonder that Reese, Finch, Carter and Fusco find any time to kick back and relax.
And now with the Machine unleashed, it looks like their work is only just beginning.
So how did the sophomore season fare? Read on to find out what we thought of Person of Interest Season 2 in this TV Fanatic Report Card...
Best episode: This was hard to pick because there were so many solid episodes this season including the last two, "Zero Day" and "God Mode." Even the controversial yet unique introduction of Sam Shaw was a favorite of mine. But I'm going to pick the hotel centric "Booked Solid." Maybe I just liked seeing Zoe Morgan return, but this episode seemed to have it all including action, humor, »

Actress Sarah Shahi plays the mysterious Samantha Shaw on the intriguing CBS drama, Person of Interest. She must be feeling the love right about now because the show is bumping up her involvement. Shahi has been promoted to series regular status. Get ready to see more, more, more.
For a character who was simply introduced to the series in the second season in a multi-episode arc, this is quite an accomplishment. She will join the other regulars, Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson, and Taraji P. Henson. CBS president Nina Tassler announced confirmed the news to THR.
Shahi’s character, Shaw, is just as capable as Caviezel’s John Reese. She has a penchant for taking out terrorists before they have a chance to attack.
When he role first began turning heads the actress has no clue that this promotion might one day come, saying, “All I’ve been told is that it’s a multi-episode arc, »

If you loved Sarah Shahi's story arc as Samantha Shaw in Season 2 of "Person of Interest" then you're in luck, because so did CBS. The network has confirmed that Shahi will be a season regular on the show's next season, which means that she'll be spending a lot more time opposite Michael Emerson's Finch and Jim Caviezel's Reese.
While watching Shahi and Caviezel work opposite one another in Season 2's finale, "God Mode," we actually had commented about what a great team Shaw and Reese make. Hopefully Shahi's fulltime status means that Shaw will now act as a partner to Reese instead of just someone who comes to help him out periodically. This likely also means that Season 3 will focus more on the government people Shaw was working for.
Shahi's promotion isn't the only change coming for "Person of Interest" in Season 3. The series has been moved to Tuesdays at 10 p. »
Warner Bros. Pictures Man of Steel opens on June 14th, 2013 and we have a new poster for the Zack Snyder-directed film starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Christopher Meloni, Jadin Gould, Ayelet Zurer, Antje Traue, Tahmoh Penikett and Dylan Sprayberry. In Man of Steel, a young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind. David S. Goyer and Jonathan Nolan wrote the script, based on the characters created by DC Comics' Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel. »
Welcome to We Got This Covered’s Deals of the Day. In this brand new column, we’ll be scouring the web in order to bring you hot deals on Blu-Rays and video games. Today, we’ve found three television related Blu-Rays that we believe are worth your attention. Check them out below.
1) Person Of Interest: The Complete First Season
Person Of Interest actually had its season two finale last night, but that doesn’t mean you should miss out on picking up season one on Blu-Ray. From the mind of Jonathan Nolan (brother of Christopher Nolan), comes one of television’s most exciting new shows. Though only two seasons in, Person of Interest is already shaping up to be a throughly enjoyable series with quite a large following. Michael Emmerson and Jim Caviezel are excellent in the two lead roles and as the mystery continues to grow, we »

Easily the best series I grew up watching during my 1980s youth was The Equalizer. There was just something majestic about the late Edward Woodward putting his retired skills to use as former operative Robert McCall in helping those in desperate need. Possibly the closest we get to see in the same spirit on American television is the Jonathan Nolan-created Person Of Interest, which I find is heavily inspired by the show which ran from 1985-89.
Well, we’ve had Denzel Washington penciled in for some time now for the big-screen reboot but a number of directors have come and gone. Drive’s Nicolas Winding Refn and Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes’ Rupert Wyatt were both interested before negotiations fell though. We now know Training Day and Olympus Has Fallen’s Antoine Fuqua will helm the action-thriller and reunite with his Oscar-winning lead for the first time »

"Person of Interest" Season 2 might have just wrapped up in the finale episode "God Mode," but fans at least know they have a lot of fun in store for them when the CBS series returns with Season 3 later this year. If waiting for the fall TV season to kick off seems too far away, here are some teases of what you can expect when "Person of Interest."
Zap2it recently had the chance to catch up with "Person of Interest" showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Greg Plageman, and they revealed at the time that a lot of major Season 2 storylines would need to wait until Season 3 to be resolved. Here's a breakdown of what's going to be tackled in future episodes.
Where is the Machine?
We came so close but so far to finding out where the Machine was in "God Mode," and since fans ended up with more questions than answers, »
And yet after speaking with series creator and one of the writers of the finale, Jonathan Nolan, he implied that "God Mode" would serve as the closing of one chapter and the beginning of another, which is exactly what transpired, bringing about a level of closure for some of the mystery surrounding Finch and the Machine and opening the door for something even more.
I had thought that Root had been receiving a fake call from the Machine and only Reese was picking up the real deal, but it turned out both were given access to the super powered computer.
Essentially the chase continued, except Root with her objective to find the Machine and set it free; and Reese to stop Root and rescue Finch.
I loved the Machine »

When "Person of Interest" heads into its Season 2 finale tonight, fans can rest easy knowing CBS has already renewed the series for a third season. That means that viewers shouldn't expect every loose Season 2 storyline to get tied up in this episode, "God Mode," as some will be left hanging to lead into Season 3.
Zap2it recently had the opportunity to speak with "Person of Interest" showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Greg Plageman, who teased where the Season 2 finale is headed. As set up in "Zero Day," the subject of the Machine's potential sentience is going to be a hot topic.
"I think we sort of laid out in a fair amount of detail in ['Zero Day'] our feelings about the Machine's sentience and where it's at in terms of the way Finch found kind of a workaround toward denying it sentience," Nolan says. "I think the nature of that word and what »
With season two coming to a close, CBS’s hit drama Person of Interest is not pulling any punches: Root’s reappearance coupled with a virus that could permanently cripple the machine, continuing troubles with Hr and the new threat of organization known as Decima, there is a lot at stake in the final episode. The other day we landed an exclusive interview with executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Greg Plageman. They talked about the machine’s role in season two, their plans for season three and beyond, as well as a little about the season two glitches and what fan favorite characters might be returning next season. The second season finale of Person of Interest airs tonight. Hit the jump for the interview. So, how are you guys doing today? Jonathan Nolan: Great, we’re doing great. Season two is clearly about the machine and its history, and »

The Machine may have shut down, but it's all systems go for the Season 2 finale of "Person of Interest," kicking off tonight at 9/8c on CBS.
"I think you could describe the finale as like an ultra-high speed game of musical chairs with machine guns and explosions," "Poi" Executive Producer Jonathan Nolan told AccessHollywood.com.
In last week's episode, the virus Kara (Mr. Reese's old partner) was responsible for having installed earlier in the season finally took down The Machine (and the show's opening title sequence), prompting it to engage in a hard reboot. Michael Emerson's character Harold ...

The Machine has rebooted, the call has gone out - and it looks like one person is going to have a "24-hour ticket to mayhem." Will it be Reese, Root, Finch or someone else?
I recently spoke with Person of Interest series creator Jonathan Nolan, along with executive producer Greg Plageman, about the end game on Person of Interest Season 2, its recurring characters,and what's in store for the finale, "God Mode."
Read on for excerpts from our Q&A…
Did you always know that the Machine shutdown and hard reset was the game plan to close out Person of Interest Season 2?
Nolan: Yeah, we've been building towards this for a long time. Because this season has spent a little more time answering questions about Harold Finch that for us it dovetailed very nicely with this idea that there's a more aggressive evolution than last season taking place here with the Machine. »

Since Mondays are just the worst, we here at Zap2it have decided to give your week a much-needed wake-up call with 10 TV teasers -- just to remind you that when the work day is over, your DVR waits to welcome you home.
This week, our Monday Kickstart includes scoop on a "Suits" flashback episode, "Supernatural's" creepy angel boss-lady, and an "Awkward" couple going head-to-head in a school election.
"Suits": It's flashback time! The sixth episode of Season 3 will send both Mike and Harvey back in time 10 years, and we'll see some of their most dearly departed. We'll meet Harvey's father, who has played a pivotal role in his life, when he and Harvey talk about the law -- and Harvey's mother, in a candid moment -- while hanging out at the batting cages. Around that time, Mike was still eating peanut butter and jelly at his Grammy's »
Matthew McConaughey was the first to be announced back in the spring, followed swiftly by Anne Hathaway last month. And we heard last week that Jessica Chastain is set to join the blockbuster as well.
And following on the hells of news of Chastain’s involvement, Deadline are reporting that Michael Caine has joined the cast alongside them.
The actor is, of course, no stranger to Nolan’s movies, with the two becoming frequent collaborators over the years.
Caine first worked with Nolan back in 2005 on Batman Begins. He then reunited with Nolan and Christian Bale for The Prestige the following year, and returned to the fold for The Dark Knight in 2008. Nolan’s Inception marked their fourth time working together in 2010, and Caine of course »

He will reunite with director Christopher Nolan for their sixth project together, Deadline reports.
Details of Interstellar have been kept closely under wraps. It will centre around an epic journey to the farthest reaches of scientific knowledge. Caine's role in the movie is also unknown at this stage.
Steven Spielberg originally conceived the project. Jonathan Nolan wrote the first draft of the script, with his director brother performing a re-write and incorporating some of his own ideas into the film.
Interstellar is scheduled for »
Here’s a piece of casting news that is shocking in all ways but actually... Michael Caine has signed on to join the cast of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, the sixth time that the actor and director have worked together.Yes, given that he’s appeared in Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises already, Caine has become something of a lucky charm/recurring ensemble member for Nolan, so it’s hardly a shock to see him cropping up for Interstellar.As for what he’ll be playing? That information remains locked in the Nolan secret strong box for now, alongside the likely roles for Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and recent potential addition Jessica Chastain.Interstellar, which originated with Steven Spielberg and was first written by Jonah Nolan, apparently finds a team on a heroic journey of scientific discovery and will likely feature wormholes/time travel. »
Shortly after word broke that Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) had boarded the project, Deadline is now reporting that Michael Caine will join her. Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway had previously been cast.
As with Inception before it, details are extremely sketchy about Interstellar at this time. What we do know is that Steven Spielberg was originally attached to the project back in 2006 with a script penned by Jonah Nolan, Chris' brother. After Spielberg left and Chris' schedule freed up, he joined his brother to rewrite the Interstellar script by mixing in an original idea and set it in motion with Paramount and Warner Bros. co-producing. »
Michael Caine has signed on to star in "Interstellar" sci-fi film, which is Christopher Nolan's next movie. The casting decision is not very surprising, since the actor has appeared in every Nolan film since "Batman Begins" in 2005. And as with most secretive Nolan movies, the first details will likely be accidentally leaked by Caine. The story involves time travel and alternate dimensions and focuses on a group of explorers traveling through a wormhole. The script, written by Nolan and his brother Jonathan Nolan, is based on scientific theories developed by Kip Thorne, a physicist at Caltech. The project was originally set up by Steven Spielberg, who eventually dropped out. "Interstellar" co-stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain, and is set to hit theaters on November 7th, 2014. »
It was only a matter of time really.
Caine has appeared in the last five films that Nolan has directed. He’s a bit of a lucky charm it seems.
Little is known about the film, except that the screenplay (by Jonathan Nolan) is based on the work of physics and relativity expert Kip S. Thorne; namely, Thorne’s theory that wormholes exist and can be used to traverse across space and time.
