When Reese is shown in the flashback, the Machine view shows him with yellow color, signifying that he knows about the machine, even though he had not yet even met Finch. In previous flashbacks to times before he met Finch, he had various colors depending on his status at that time, but never yellow. See more »


QMI Manager: Let me ask you this Do you care if your patients live or die?
Sameen Shaw: Of course.
QMI Manager: But does it hurt you? I've been watching you for some time, and it doesn't seem to bother you.
Sameen Shaw: This place is filled with doctors who don't care if their patients live or die.
QMI Manager: No, this place is filled with doctors who pretend they don't care. But you're different. Aren't you? Your attendings all say the same thing about you - technically brilliant. Remarkably calm. They can't spot what you really are.

"That was kinda hot" (Shahi to Acker) ****BEST TV EVER!****
6 February 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

"Just when I think life with you people couldn't get any weirder, one of you takes it to the next level." (dialog, Chapman)

Not merely the best episode of the series to date but one of the best TV hours ever produced in the history of the medium, (and this reviewer has been watching since the 1950s) Technically perfect, from the fast-open to the wonderful cameo by Enrico Colantoni as Elias at the end.

Special mention to Kevin Chapman for stealing his scenes and revealing a new aspect of his character never seen before.

Basically flawless. Not surprised to see Nolan "hisself" has a co-writing credit. (Reminds me of the best Buffy episodes, they always showed Whedon as a co-writer.)

Here is the thing, while every producer WANTS to take his or her show to the next level, few make the journey successfully.

This is the exception that proves the rule.

Finally we have the pairing that the writers had been teasing us about for some time: (ORIGINAL TEAM) - (CARTER) + (ROOT) Not counting Bear (part of the original team, works literally for table scraps) and The Machine (talks only to Root).

Watched it several times, and could not find any way to improve on it.

Something rare and special -- perfect television, as an art form.

If you are reading this review before you see the show, congratulations, You just hit paydirt.
