Please, please, please, anything you can tell me about my fave show, Supernatural? —Lisa
Oh, this is a bit more than “anything.” “We’ve got something really cool coming up in Episode 5, where it will be the triumphant or not so triumphant return of the Thule, who have decided »
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.
It used to be we worried about the threat of artificial intelligence in movies like Colossus: The Forbin Project or “The Ultimate Computer” episode of Star Trek. Today, though, artificial intelligence is here thanks to Siri and Cortanna and their cousins. We talk to our phones and they answer back and these bots are growing increasingly sophisticated. As a result, what seemed ahead of its time a mere give years ago is looking increasingly prescient.
CBS’ Person of Interest arrived on September 22, 2011 and came with a fine pedigree having been created by Jonathan Nolan with J.J. Abrams on board as Executive Producer. It starred Michael Emerson, hot off Lost, Jim Caviezel, a pre-Empire Taraji P. Henson, and Kevin Chapman. It received near universal acclaim »

Belated thoughts on last week's Person of Interest series finale (which aired during my vacation) coming up just as soon as I've learned the secret of life and then forgotten it... "I've been trying to save the world for so long, saving one life at a time seemed anti-climactic. But then I realized, sometimes one life is the right life. It's enough." -Reese "Return 0" had everything I had hoped for from the series' penultimate episode but didn't quite get: stakes, grandeur, and a real sense of finality. Obviously, the last episode of a show has some advantages in those areas, particularly that last one, but where ".Exe" seemed to be racing to wrap up as much material about Samaritan (particularly with Harold's use of a previously undiscussed super virus to solve most of Team Machine's problems) as possible before CBS realized the show was still in production and tried to shut things down early, »

Person of Interest may have ended this week, but the CBS series' executive producers recently told Deadline they're open to a spin-off series.
The drama starred Jim Caviezel as a former CIA agent who partners with a billionaire (Michael Emerson) to prevent violent crimes in New York City. The cast also included Kevin Chapman, Sarah Shahi, and Amy Acker.

CBS has already cancelled Person of Interest so the ratings don't matter as much for the final, fifth season. However, if the numbers are strong enough, could the network or studio decide to make a sixth season anyway? Stay tuned.
On Person of Interest, a presumed dead former-cia agent (Jim Caviezel) and a mysterious billionaire (Michael Emerson) work together to prevent violent crimes in New York City. The rest of the cast includes Kevin Chapman, Sarah Shahi, and Amy Acker.
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.

Moments make up our lives. Whether they are big moments or small moments, we can always recall one particular moment out of a memory. Final moments in particular are something we always remember and play a huge part in how we look back at something. For television series this is most especially true as the ending of a series either secures or damages its legacy. We’ve seen this a number of times in the last few years with shows such as Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, Battlestar Galactica and Lost. It is fitting, then, that final moments were a central theme in Person of Interest’s series finale.
Though Finch effectively crippled Samaritan in the previous episode with his Ice-9 virus, the AI was making one more desperate attempt to survive and wipe out Finch and his cohorts. The tension »

Spoiler Alert: The story includes spoilers about tonight’s series finale of Person of Interest. As teased by the series’ producers, CBS’ Person Of Interest ended its five-season run tonight with a bang, killing off one of the main characters, Reese, played by Jim Caviezel.

Can Team Machine free humanity from Samaritan? Whose number is up in the June 21st Person of Interest TV show finale? Creator and executive producer Jonathan Nolan and fellow Ep Greg Plagemen aren't saying, but they did discuss the final days of the series, starring Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson, Kevin Chapman, and Sarah Shahi.
Reporting from the Atx TV Festival in Austin TX, Deadline says the only finale detail the duo let slip is that "Return 0" features a Fitbit. Per the report, Nolan said it is “more of an emotional finale” than expected. He also said the series finale will “revisit relationships that we never got a chance to get to before,” adding that “doesn’t work out so well.”Read More… »
A review of last night's Person of Interest coming up just as soon as you get me the really big gun and a hair scrunchie... Well, damn. By opening the season on a flashforward featuring a recording of Root's voice warning us of what was to come — and by never showing us Root making that recording — Person of Interest seemed to be implying she was the safest of all the members of Team Machine as we headed into the home stretch. And because I had that thought in the back of my head, all of her talk throughout "The Day the World Went Away" about how the world itself is a simulation, how the Machine contains perfect copies of each of them, etc., never registered to me as warning signs of her imminent death, even though in hindsight they obviously should have. Earlier today, Vox's Todd VanDerWerff published a story »

Ricky Church reviews the ninth episode of Person of Interest season 5…
Person of Interest’s ‘Sotto Voce’ did something the show rarely has done over the course of its five seasons: it brought back a low level antagonist who appeared only in one episode. The Voice, who appeared in season three’s ‘Last Call’, decided to visit Reese’s workplace in his latest scheme to protect his identity. ‘Sotto Voce’ was another good stand-alone episode that tied up one of the series’ loose ends and further developed Reese and Fusco’s friendship.
Before I continue with what I liked about this episode, I have to note its placement in the season seems rather odd. I said in my review for ‘A More Perfect Union’ it seemed like the case-of-the-week format wasn’t going to be as dominant in the back half of the season since that episode had a strong »

The following contains major spoilers from Person of Interest‘s 100th episode.
With just three episodes left to air in its fifth and final season, CBS’ Person of Interest, with its milestone 100th episode, made it painfully clear that Team Machine will need to make ultimate sacrifices in the name of battling Samaritan.
RelatedPerson of Interest Bosses Spill Secrets Behind Episode 100’s ‘Avalanche of Grief and Loss,’ Share One Regret
When Michael Emerson signed on to star in CBS’ “Person of Interest” in 2011, he had no idea — or, truthfully, any hope — that the series would make it 100 episodes. The show’s pilot was the first he’d ever made. In fact, before he got the role of Benjamin Linus in “Lost,” he says, he could never get hired to be part of a show’s original cast.
“When you start out with a show, you think of it as, ‘Ok, this is a pilot. It’s a job. I don’t think you really have an expectation of it going,’” Emerson says. “Actors, we just train ourselves over the years not to hope too much. So when it does actually go, you think, ‘Oh my God. I’m going to have to really do this. I’m going to have to do it a lot. One hundred episodes, possibly. Hahahaha! »

A quick review of last night's Person of Interest coming up just as soon as I have a bit of liquid courage... Where the Number of the Week story from "Truth Be Told" felt like too much of a throwback to less urgent days for the series, more recent episodes have done a better job of integrating the Number stories into the larger war against Samaritan. "Shotseeker" (which I didn't review) demonstrated how law-enforcement's increasing reliance on technology makes it an easy target for Samaritan, while last night's "A More Perfect Union" juggled a traditional Number story with a pair of Samaritan-driven subplots, with Greer trying to convince Shaw to switch sides(*) and Fusco's ignorance of all things Machine/Samaritan finally getting him into big trouble with the tunnel explosion. (*) I know Shaw's in the position she's in because Sarah Shahi needed to leave the show as a full-time job, »

The television industry’s annual roller coaster of relief and devastation — more commonly known as Upfronts Week — has come to an end. Venerable series have been cancelled (Rip, Castle), long shots have earned additional seasons (party on, Sleepy Hollow!) and a whole slew of new programs have earned their place on the 2016-17 schedule.
RelatedFall TV Schedule 2016: What’s on When? And Versus What?
But amid all the fall trailers and extravagant presentations from the broadcast nets, you might be wondering what became of certain buzzy pilots that failed to land series orders.
To that end, we’ve compiled »
There’s a noticeable pattern on CBS’ fall schedule: The lead actors in each of the new shows ordered are white males.
The network’s new fall series include: “Bull,” starring Michael Weatherly; “Kevin Can Wait,” with Kevin James; “The Great Indoors,” with Joel McHale; “Man With a Plan,” starring Matt LeBlanc; “Pure Genius,” headlined by Augustus Prew and Dermot Mulroney; and “MacGyver,” which features Lucas Till and George Eads.
New entertainment president Glenn Geller defended the network’s lineup during a press conference with reporters. “Our new series are more diverse this year than last year,” he said, referring to the ensembles of shows like “Bull,” “Pure Genius” and “The Great Indoors.” He also pointed to another series that’s being held for midseason, “Doubt,” which features a female lead, Katherine Heigl, as well as transgender actress Laverne Cox (“Orange is the New Black”). “‘Doubt,’ I’m happy to say, »

Comedy is coming back to CBS. A year after the network downsized to just two total hours of sitcoms in the fall — and went without comedies on Mondays for the first time since the earliest days of television — the network is doubling up its sitcom presence, with four-comedy blocs on both Mondays and Thursdays (once the network's NFL commitment is done) in the fall. The new Monday bloc will be filled with recognizable faces, including Kevin James and Matt LeBlanc (reuniting on the night with Matthew Perry, whose Odd Couple was renewed), while Joel McHale's The Great Indoors is the one new Thursday comedy. The network is, like everyone else in the network TV business, also loading up on recognizable brands. As new CBS entertainment president Glenn Geller put it about the MacGyver remake — which is undergoing significant retooling from the original pilot episode — "When you have an IP like MacGyver, »

Ricky Church reviews the fourth episode of Person of Interest season five…
It was an event we were all waiting for: Sarah Shahi’s return as Sameen Shaw in Person of Interest finally happened. Shahi, who left last year due to pregnancy and maternity leave, filled a small void that had been left in her absence, but her return wasn’t quite what was expected as Samaritan played literal mind games with her. That being said, even though her return wasn’t as many expected it to be, many of the story beats were rather expected, especially in the second half of the episode.
Shahi’s performance was an immediate reminder as to why she’s cultivated such a large fan base. Right off the bat, Shahi brought Shaw’s wit and sarcasm to the forefront, not only displaying her deadly skills (still incredibly deadly even when she’s not »
