Person of Interest (Reese is amused)
Person of Interest 2.03


OMG. FROM THIS FIRST MINUTE 37 SECONDS, ALREADY I CAN TELL THIS EPISODE WILL BE AM-AY-AY-AZ-ING. OMFG.

And this is where I admit that Caviezel's voice and manner remind me a fair amount of Tyler Hoechlin as Derek Hale. Strangely; a warmer Derek. I think this is how I fell in love with Derek so quickly, because I unconsciously associated him with Reese. Hoechlin as Hoechlin, however, was easy to fall in love with, because the man is made of sparkles and sunshine.

THAT WAS ACTUALLY A LOOK OF LOVE.

Emerson seriously needs to rethink the length of his sideburns. [/in depth analysis]

Excellent women write excellent episodes for this show. (Excellent men do too, but women writing for tv is still somehow a rarity, so.)

CAN I JUST POINT OUT HOW MUCH I LOVE REESE AND FINCH AS INDIVIDUALS, AND THAT I FUCKING ADORE THEM TOGETHER? So competent! So kickass! SO ADORABLE.

No, really.

Sia in my favourite show. Okay, an overplayed song. But still Sia. Life. Made.

I love it when even the supporting characters clearly ship the show's main couple. Carter! \o/

And more Carter FTW.

Watching Finch get close to Bear is ridiculously heart-warming.

Nothing like a well-choreographed fight scene in strobe lighting.

THIS DOG. Is a better actor than Caviezel was in the first four episodes.

I am actually liking Sofia and I feel this is going to be a sweet redemption story, much like a heart-warming teen flick.

Emerson is completely brilliant, guys. He always impresses me. I hated the little I saw of him on Lost, but I loved him straight away in this, and, oh, Finch, oh. Poor little damaged stiff-necked computer genius.

Plotty plot plot. I've always found it interesting how PoI has about four different storylines occurring at any one time. I find myself wondering if/how Stanton ties into Root.

OMG. BEST ENDING SCENE EVER. THEIR LOVE. THEIR FUCKING LOVE.

I'm going to +1 everything you said above (except about the fight scene - that was a bit headachey for me!). I nearly PM'd you to ask about the ending - the version I was watching stopped just after Fusco smashed the car window - but luckily I managed to find it on another site.

And the continuing bad guys/girls in this show are all seriously terrifying in different ways. I'm so glad the dog's going to be around to look after Harold, though, whenever John's not available!

I think one of the things I love most about PoI is that the relationship development between Reese and Finch never seems like queerbaiting, it just seems genuine and natural and wonderful.

Oh my Gosh, I would have screamed if my episode had ended then.

THIS. SHOW.

After last night's ep... I've been thinking since then and even today, that yeah, this is hands down my favorite show that's on my TV currently. Finch and Reese are so lovely, they make me want to cry. All about how Finch saved him. And Reese wanting to help Finch with his PTSD, and now there's Bear! And aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh.

And Fusco and Carter! So happy they're in know about each other both helping our guys. I like that they can kinda bitch about Finch and Reese to each other.

And a show where I cannot think of a single female character that is not awesome in some way (well, maybe Jessica. At same time we don't really get enough of her to make me have any deep feelings about her). I love Carter, Zoe, Stanton (as an awesome bitch), Root, and even poor Alicia. Just AGH my feelings for this show!!!!

YES. YES. YES.

Everything you say here is how I feel.

I agree with everything you said. At first I wasn't so sure if Bear would be a good addition to the show, but his interaction with Finch was priceless. Michael Emerson is brilliant, so fun to watch. I do like that they're juggling several storylines in one episode.

I still haven't watched past season 1 of Lost yet. I thought I might watch again to see more of Emerson. Did you hate him because you were meant to hate him? Shouldn't I watch more of Lost?

I felt the same about Bear, initially, but as with the baby episode last series, this show pulls it off with aplomb.

I never actually properly watched Lost, because it wasn't my thing in a lot of ways, it was just something my Dad watched, but the bit I saw Emerson in, he was a creepy antagonist. I was meant to dislike him and I did. I don't know if his character changed any, because that was when I had my own shows I could be getting on with.

THEIR LOVE. THEIR FUCKING LOVE.

I thought the last episode was likely to kill me. And then this one came along! Aaaaiiiiiieeeeee, so good! Especially the framing opening and closing scenes, which grabbed my heart in a velvet fist and squeeeeeezed, but also the rest. It's actually a good thing this show only airs once a week, because I can use the recovery time!

Yes to all of this. The week's wait is perfect for this show, I find. I like the build up of anticipation.

You mentioning Derek here reminds me of how much I want to write the AU where Derek is John and Stiles is Finch and Scott is Fusco and Allison is Carter.

Also I am probably too pleased to see you admitting Jesus wasn't very good at acting in the first few episodes. I remember arguing about that with you. :)

I WROTE THAT SOLELY FOR YOU AND DIDN'T BELIEVE A WORD OF IT, HAAAAAAA. (I have been writing reports all night, so I'm a little capslock happy.) (But, seriously, this dog is THAT good an actor. I still support Jesus' first episodes acting, because I think it was deliberate for the later character building. And I *rarely* agree with other people's perceptions of wooden acting. Subtlety is my favourite acting trait. [Conversely, over the top archvillain mugging is my second favourite.])

I love your AU idea. I totally see it, too.

I'm all for subtle acting! I can write odes to Misha in Supernatural and everything he does with inflection and slight movements of his eyes. I just don't think Jesus did that in the first block of episodes - I think he was lucky that John was supposed to be detached because it's obvious the transition from film to TV didn't go well for him. And he got better! So it's not like I'm calling him rubbish.

(I used to do drama in school - I almost know wooden acting better than good acting. :D)

In my AU Kate is probably his evil ex-partner. Hunters are the CIA. Lydia is the fixer. Everyone else are probably numbers.
