Gets better with each episode
Elizabeth Rose12 January 2012
It took me several episodes to start really engaging with this show, and I credit the performances of the cast to keep me coming back. But this episode was the whole package, and I feel like my patience has been supremely rewarded. As a huge fan of Hitchcock, I love how the writers wove an homage to *Rear Window* into the weekly POI process (amusingly), even while including a meaty flashback and two additional story lines that progress the larger narrative and mysteries without weighing the viewers down. And there was a lot to absorb in this ep. (I was shaking my head after thinking about all that was covered.) In the past when they've tried to build on the back-story, it seemed cumbersome, but ever since about ep. 8, it feels like they're finally finding a balance that works. And the bigger mysteries are not sacrificed in the process. POI has found its feet and it's become MSTV. (Must-see TV.)

Great Episode

Warning: Spoilers
Best episode yet, it really focuses on " the machine" capabilities and I like the flashback to 2005 showing the history of Finch's involvement. I can't wait to see how much Det Carter gets involved now that " she's been in the deep end " The CIA mystery continues to arouse my interest on who Reese is or was and I thought the Elias character would become more involved this season but the show continues to amaze me with the continual twists and turns and divulgance. Todays show also was a great twist having Finch be the frontman and Reese manning the computer ( both did well with each others duties LOL ) I wonder what will happen to Det Fusco now that Finch has an " ally ", we shall be looking forward to next week to see what happens

"Rear Window"

Felt like this episode was inspired by the Hitchcock's classic "Rear Window." well executed though.
