I'm sure it could get much much lamer than that. But you'll watch anyway . . .

Does that police woman ever smile?

Definitely a stretch. I'm sure most CSU know one another. That said, the episode added an additional arc that makes me want more. I'm guessing that the writers bring back the doc the treat the gunshot wounds. it only makes sense to start calling in some favors here.

Yeah, there were a couple of "really?" moments, but it still holds my interest and is well plotted and acted. It hasn't gone down the cartoon style escapes and plot holes that Burn Notice has been reduced to, so I can accept an occasional 'improbable easy solution' like the CSU thing just to get the plot further along. Too many of those and it will begin to hurt the show because the rest of it is quite intriguing and suspenseful. Batman actually seemed to have a bit more of an animated personality in this one - until he got shot in the gut. That one caught me off guard, but the Detective having an epiphany and helping at the end didn't.

I am not a big fan of Burn Notice either, but some of the actions in that show are more believable. On one episode Westen walked into a security conference and pretended to be a member. The people there started asking questions and chased after him. He ran for his life and, of course, got away.

The makers of this show, I don't how to call it, are just lazy. They must have figured, hey we have the famous "Lost" guy here. Whatever we put out there, those fans will eat it up.

Want to know what else is impossible? People don't walk after being shot in the leg, much less in the leg and in the gut by sniper riffle.

If it bothers you that bad, then don't watch. It is that simple. Or is that not what your agenda is?

So what he posed as a CSU.

He was there only for a few mins and vanished when the detectives arrived.

Not long enough to get exposed.

Even CSI had an episode where an imposter infiltrated the team on a scene. It isn't as improbable as it sounds. So it was OK on CSI but not on PoI? That is what he is saying.

I've heard more then once and it's true....If you act like you belong and know what you're doing you'll rarely get questioned.

As for filling in for CSU, there have to be dozens and dozens of CSU types across New York City and suburbs. If someone were to question who you are it would probably be easy enough to say that "so and so precinct sent me down to help, heard you were short handed". That may work long enough he was in there.

That one is easy. He saved her life and the CIA guys screwed her over. Not hard to see where her allegiance falls. There is the back story.

Yea, Carter has run into Finch a couple times, most notably as the "innocent" bystander in the police lockup robbery. But until now she didn't have Finch and Reese connected, now she does.

You might be surprised at what people can do for brief periods of time while in shock and under the influence of adrenaline.

I hope this doesn't get canceled like most of the other 'different' series from last year that I watched.

It's nice to see a program w/o a bunch of 25 or 30 year olds with electronic devices in their hands that can't act.

Jim Caviezel is a class act and so is the character!

PoI got a full season order. New episodes start this week I believe. Very few shows run originals during the holidays.

Well luckily it's not on NBC or it would probably be up for discussion right now.

I've completely abandoned NBC's scripted series after their horrific treatment of the few promising shows they've canned over the last few years.
I honestly would not miss NBC one bit if they packed it in and 100% vanished off the face of the Earth.

I think you have something there.
It seems if the series isn't in the top 10, they dump it.

As far as "NY- The tax state"; Someone has to pay for all the rejects from the south.

That is not what his agenda is. He trolls other TV show threads also. Best to just ignore him.

OT: I'm also glad this show will continue but I think Finch needs to work on his limp. Or get a cane. I assume he had some sort of leg injury but I can't tell which leg he favors.

Also noticed that he can't turn his head much, so turns his whole upper torso.

In episode 4 (I think) .. Finch is at a doctors office and she comments that he's had spinal fusion surgery .. which would also explain his inablity to move his head ..
