Storyline

The next number Reese and Finch work on is that of Logan Pierce, a self-made billionaire, whose social networking website, friendczar.com, which he founded and still operates with his best friend and partner, Justin Ogilvie, is going public in 72 hours. This IPO has the potential to be the largest in history. Reese and Finch believe Pierce is the intended target as his reckless and win-at-all-cost mentality has resulted in him making many enemies. These potential enemies include competitors, all of whom friendczar has crushed many in immoral ways, and his own company colleagues who feel that he is too reckless to be an effective CEO and is thus a liability. Reese quickly learns that it will be not easy to follow Pierce as he lives by his own rules, which is made all the more easy for Pierce by his extreme wealth. As such, Reese decides a different than traditional tact is required to protect Pierce. But Reese and Finch also realize that being a wealthy computer expert, Pierce has the ... Written by Huggo

Episode good but not quite up to POI standards
8 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a big POI fan, loving the edge and humor of each episode. However, last night's One Per Cent was a disappointment. Overall quality was above most everything else on TV right now, but not quite up to POI's excellent standard. I couldn't get into the story until it was almost half done. Even the humor between Mr. Reese and Mr Finch seemed strained. Perhaps that is because the last 4 episodes were so incredible that anything that followed was bound to be a bit of a letdown. Mr. Reese was irritated by the POI, more so than I have noticed him in the past. One of the best scenes occurred between Mr. Reese and Mr. Finch, when John explained to Harold that he was not quite himself because of spending all that time at Rykers, then being captured by Kara, wearing a bomb vest, almost getting blown up, etc. Bear had the mopes as well. Another fun scene was when Mr. Reese, in his roll as a very rich hedge fund manager, bid $10 million of Mr. Finch's money for a box of Einstein's letters to get the POI's attention. We didn't get any reaction shot after the bid, it just dropped. The POI character was really irritating, which he was supposed to be, but there were so many others it got confusing. I wondered who wrote and directed this episode because it was so different from POI normal; if he does anymore episodes he needs to understand that the strength of this show is the depth of the characters, and their interaction with each other. Missed Det. Carter interacting with Mr. Reese - they clearly love each other, but they don't realize it yet, and it has yet to be defined if it is romantic or friend love. Hopefully next episode, on Valentine's Day, will be back to POI standards.
