Default Person Of Interest

If pedigree alone were enough to get a TV show greenlit, this next project would be a slam dunk: J.J. Abrams is currently shopping a crime-thriller series created by Jonah Nolan, brother and frequent collaborator of The Dark Knight/Inception auteur Christopher Nolan.
This would mark the first small-screen foray for Nolan, who not only co-wrote The Dark Knight and The Prestige but penned the short story on which Memento was based.
According to an insider, one network is extremely interested in the untitled project. My hunch is, it wonít be the only one.
All in all, itís shaping up to be a busy development season for Bad Robot boss Abrams, who is also pitching an Alcatraz-set drama series written by fellow Lost producer Elizabeth Sarnoff.

At last! I managed to watch the last episode, "Relevance" and... Holey Moley! It was awesome. It had everything! It was a part of this universe that we haven't seen before: how does the government prevent the terrorist attacks with the Machine.

It was such a great setup from the beginning (the interruption of the intro). Seeing the agents Shaw and Cole doing their jobs was just an awesome way to show how these skilled people managed to do what Finch and Reese do, but in a different way. It was a little more ruthless and to the point. Having her retrieving the bullets from the body and then blowing up the place was a great way to completely cover their tracks. Essentialy, just as Finch and Reese, they are ghosts.

At first I thought the number in NY was the same for Shaw and Reese, but then switching it to Shaw was surprising. I really felt a little when they killed Cole, tough thing to do with a brand new character. It was pretty smart for Shaw to kidnap the drug dealer, she had a nice way to protect her whereabouts and providing her with guns and healing aids. have her going Having Root pulling some strings from behind was very nice. The confrontation between her and Shaw was great, Root is still on the top of the baddies, along Elias. Also it showed that Shaw is radically different than Reese.

At the end, having Hersh (or the Anti-Reese, as I call him) killing her was a nice touch. Unexpected and subtle, nothing that could be traced back to the Council. And more unexpected even, having the entire team working to save her, so nice.

I blew my mind! Congratulations for Jonah and the entire team, this was perhaps my favorite episode so far!

Also, I was checking the wiki of Person of Interest, and apparently since the episode "One Percent", the Machine has been "glitching", giving away strings of code in hexadecimal, which some dedicated people over there converted to ASCII. There are eight embedded codes so far:

From "One Percent"

Converted to ASCII, is the fragment of the book "Heart of Darkness" by Joseph Conrad. The badly placed logo prevented a full conversion. The "#" symbols fill in the blanks.

Converted to ASCII, is a fragment of "The Principles of Surgery" by John Bell:
Quote:
On removing the bandage and dressings, I had now an opportunity of seeing the extent and appearance of the disease. The scalp had ulcerated and sloughed off to the extent of five or six inches in diameter, exposing almost all the upper part of the scull. The insulated piece consisted of the upper and back part of the right and left parietal bones. It extended from the lambdoid suture behind, to within two inches of the coronal suture before. The sagittal suture was seen to run along the middle of this caries, wheh measured transversely five inches, and longitudinally three inches and a half. A great part of the external table of the loose bone had mouldered away, and the dura mater was seen through the trepan-hole, and through many ulcerations in the scull, covered with pale unhealthy granulations. The edges of the scalp were swollen, livid, and painful, and the discharge of pus was profuse, of a dark colour, and very fetid. The insulated piece of bone was immersed in matter, blacke ned on its surface, and incrusted with the discharge. I could easily move this piece of bone a little way upwards or downwards, or to either side, the thin edges of it passing at each movement under the edge, or between the tables of the surrounding bones. It could even be depressed a few degrees, though the resistance to this was very considerable ; nor did the patient complain of any uneasiness. It was this resistance that enabled Lr. Anderson to apply the trepan]

Converted to ASCII, it is again an exerpt of "The Principles of Surgery" by John Bell:
Quote:
In excessive fractures (says Dionis) we should not hesitate to make two, three, or four perforations, if required. A young girl, of eleven or twelve years of age, having, by a fall down stairs, fractured the whole of the parietal with a part of the temporal bone, Mr. Marechal trepaned her next day in two places: he made his son trepan her a third time; he allowed my son, who was present, to trepan her a fourth time : the next day, applied the trepan twice more, and in the end had actually perforated twelve times, and cured her completely. So precious an example shows how little reason we have to be surprised dt the frequent application of the trepan." Here is a doctrine laid down, which, I fear, there is little occasion to enforce ; and I cannot but persist in being surprised and shocked, at the frequent and large perforations which I have both read of and seen, and cannot but think of these veterans in surgery in no very amiable light, when I see them indulging their boys in the novelty of operating, probably on very slight compulsion. These reports, and especially the last clause of this paragraph, viz. " that we should not be surprised at the number of trepans," have plainly a reference to the ever memorable operation performed in the time of King William's wars, on hilip Count of Nassau, by Henry Chadborn, chirurgeon. Godifredus, chief surgeon to the Ckates of Holland, mentions with particular exultation this operation performed by his f


They have been appearing on the show since the events of "Dead's Reckoning" in which Kara Stanton uploads the malware to the net by orders from Evil Mr. Fredericks. Apparently it is taking a toll, and most of the converted code relates to the spread of something evil.

I freaking love this show!

My basic guess is I dunno some sort of hostile take over of the US's grid and holding the country for hostage?

I mean the show is all about hacking so are they basically going to hack the US or use the machine against the good guys?

Agreed.

The exchange between the killer and Finch was tense; it was one of the few times when watching television - even though I knew they were not going to off him - I sat on the edge of my seat. I have not been that emotionally invested in a television program for a while.

That was by far Emerson's best scene on the show so far for me, followed by when he was kidnapped by Root.

And I just heard that Paige Turco is starring in a new show that's going to be filming right near me. I wonder if I can get down there and get an autograph one day during filming or at least watch.

So did I... Rather too obvious IMHO, an age old cliche... But done well.

I did notice the blank screens, I took them to be out due to the storm, but they could also be out due to whatever it was that was uploaded...

Had a feeling it was the FBI due to how much he was being shown but still a very good episode. Really like how they weaved in Shaw and the virus to make John and Finch start to question if the Machine has been possibly compromised.

The FBI agent was obvious but who was in Rollins house when Finch found the teeth?

Quality episode with a really great atmosphere, it felt like an old fashioned thriller and I loved the little nod of Reese and Finch coming out of a screening of Rashamon at the beginning.

Rollins had an accomplice? Someone else tracking Finch?

Looks like Finch's glasses are fakes and just for show. The clear implication is that he doesn't need them. When Carter showed up he started squinting like he was "performing" for her benefit.

Finch does seem to be disabled to some degree. It looks like the limp is legit because he has like four pins or something in his spine. So it looked like he might've been temporarily disabled or paralyzed at some point. He was in a wheelchair when he first saw Reese, but that could've just been a hospital wheelchair to help him get around the hospital.

They've given us bits and pieces of what happened to Finch and even Nathan Ingram. We know that Ingram tampered with the Machine to some degree, but we don't know exactly what he did. The Machine did consider him a threat so may have done something to warn Finch about his intentions.

I have a feeling that somebody or some group tried to have them killed and Finch's injuries are a result of that failed attempt. There are a lot of unquestioned answers about the partnership of Ingram and Finch so I could see that being touched upon in upcoming seasons, considering Ingram is dead and Finch is forced to live under an assumed name. I'm kind of figuring that maybe "Control" had something to do with their possible termination.
