Person of Interest Season 5

Is no one watching this anymore?

Season 5 has started (in the US)

I think this is going to be the last season. It seems to be a bit all over the place with the format this season. Oh and they are also being shown in a weird date order. It's almost like they're trying to finish it off quickly.

Season 5

91. 5-1 03 May 16 B.S.O.D.
92. 5-2 09 May 16 SNAFU
93. 5-3 10 May 16 Truth Be Told
94. 5-4 16 May 16 6,741
95. 5-5 17 May 16 ShotSeeker
96. 5-6 23 May 16 A More Perfect Union (62 min)
97. 5-7 24 May 16 QSO
98. 5-8 24 May 16 Reassortment
99. 5-9 30 May 16 Sotto Voce
100. 5-10 31 May 16 The Day The World Went Away
101. 5-11 07 Jun 16 Synecdoche
102. 5-12 14 Jun 16 .exe
103. 5-13 21 Jun 16 Return 0

It was cancelled back in March.
There again Abrams executive produced Lost which could have been canned given the lack of coherent direction to the story.

I've only watched the first 4 episodes, and they've been pretty poor so far. I think its probably for the best its being put out of its misery.

The final season has been a bit of a mixed bag but the closer it gets to the finale, the better it has been, especially this week's (ep.10) which was the show's 100th Episode. Plenty of action, deaths & a highly (mixed) emotional ending, topped off with a very apt Nine Inch Nails track...

Episode 10 was immense. But yeah, the rest has been so far off the quality of the first two series that its unrecognisable.

Back to 1 episode a week now though.

I agree (up until ep 10!!) that it's not been up to it's own high standards, but it's not been anywhere near as bad as you're suggesting throughout the rest of this season, and remains significantly better than the vast majority of shows on TV, and the final 3 episodes should hopefully be epic!

I've always been a big fan of this show, always rated it highlighy even after Shaw was introduced and people said it lost some momentunm, and continued to love it after Shaw's disappearance where it really did start to lose some momentum... but this last season for me has been wildly uneven and generally a bit of a chore to sit through. Last few episodes have seen an upturn in quality but it's still a long way from it's past glories.

Samaritan killed this show for me, they dragged it on far too long and never gave the good guys any reasonable chance or even the most modest of victories against a near omnipotent opponent, who didn't really have any significant kind of presence beyond John Nolan's rather enjoyable but anonymous spokesperson.

I think had they bothered to build a proper team of villains working for Samaritan then there'd be people for me to invest in, but the writing has been wafer thin for a couple of seasons now. This season has been business as usual: good guys circling the drain until some crappy deus ex machina gives us a lacklustre conclusion to the Samaritan saga. The last episode that aired (number 12) only highlight how **** the writing has become:



Urgh, I'm not sure which final season has been more disappointing, this or Banshee's. Maybe it's just me though, seem's the last season has been getting rave reviews in the States.

I'm halfway through the final episode.
This season has been dull and awful. Pretty much every episode seems to have been the same each time.

I think the Washington scenes hinted at how it's likely make a return.
I'd have much preferred it without the battle of the machines and how dragged out that was.

If you have Sky you should be able to download it in HD after it has aired.

Thanks for the heads up, I switched last nights episode off after half way through as the picture quality was so poor and I was just going to download the rest of the series instead.
