Another good episode this week and Reece's backstory is almost complete! (the man just doesn't take being shot lying down, does he?).

Yes another terrific episode. A glimpse at the end of where Reese crashes - I'd often wondered

I was not certain if "the machine" they were looking for in China was a clone of Finch's Machine.

And once again just when you think this show can't get any better, it does!

Both the back story & the main story this week were fantastic. Very interested to find out how they wrap the season, next week.

Brilliant programme. Head and shoulders above other network shows.

I watched the first couple of eps of this and then got sidetracked and forgot about it. I'd assumed 5USA or somesuch would start showing it but no-one seems to have bothered buying it yet. Any idea if it's coming to the UK? I haven't got the will to catch up via download.

Although it would be perfect for Sky 1 I don't think any one has picked this up by any UK tv channel which is a shame as they pick up crap shows like Alcatraz which get cancelled and don't really go anywhere.

I've got up too episode 9 of this but I'm not that hooked, does it get any better?

Im not that fussed in new baddie/story of the week style shows which is why I struggle with it, that and Jim Caviezel's wierd voice.

It does start developing more of an arc later on in the series, although it's still evolves around an episodic format.

I do prefer a proper arc in a series, but this is probably one of the better things on network TV at the moment.

His acting does improve, so he doesn't appear to be sleepwalking through everything.

It absolutely does. The season is building up to a great finale. More of the backstory of Reese, Finch and the Machine is gradually being revealed so that what we've seen in previous episodes start to make sense.

I love the little details. Like when we get the Machine's view of the world it has boxes around people it is spying on - sometimes the box is yellow which I think means it is someone who knows about the Machine's existence.

loved this show, my favourite of the season.
this is how shows should progress over a season, they tied up so much and left a cliffhanger ready for the next series.
glad it's got a second series.

Yeah, another great episode, ticked all the right boxes for what a season finale should do. Easily the best new US Network drama show of this season & I very much look forward to next season as there still feels like there is a lot of untapped plot line potential.

Well that was just about perfect as finale's go.

Can't wait for the autumn and the next season.

Agree with the above comments. That was an awesome end to a series I very nearly gave up on.

Yeah, cracking finale. They've really built it up and left a nice cliffhanger for next season.
