May not be popular but the episode was ill timed at the end of the season when they should be going hard in the arc like they have the past 3 seasons. Pretty boring. Especially after watching the series finale of Justified. I fwd'd thru in a few spots.

The timing of it is a bit odd. Might have been better placed in January or February. Now there's only two episodes left to wrap up whatever they intend to wrap up this season.

Maybe because IMHO it was a drag episode.

I don't see them concluding any storyline in the last two eps besides maybe the Elias half of the brotherhood/elias storyline. Decima has been around since season 2. Not enough eps to tie that up. Plus they have shaw. The brotherhood hasn't gotten enough focus to tie up. HR lasted for 2 1/2 seasons before it was tied up. My guess is we will get some cliffhangers again.

Last nights ep did nothing for any of those storylines. They should have shown that sentimental, soul searching, nonsense earlier in the season. Not to mention they are not on again next week. Way too many breaks between new episodes this season.

I agree, the timing of the episode is off and will affect the pace and conclusion of the season and its storylines. I think the episode has value in character development for John in showing how much he thought of Carter, and how much he actually expressed. Showing how much he takes for granted in the team he works with and in his relationships with them. Also goes to show how deeply he felt for Carter. I don't think the gang wars or decima/machine face off will wrap up this season, they will most likely carry over. It is going to be a fast finish now though.

Unlike others here I agree with you. Getting a little tired of the Samaritan and the bad guys formula. This was a welcome change back to the main characters for me

I really liked the episode. I understand the frustration with the timing of it in the season but odds are the main story lines carry over until next season anyways.

I was very frustrated by this episode. Watched it last night and my FIOS DVR started recording late and ended early. Hope it is available on demand so I can see it in its entirety.

There's something going on with the guide at Fios because mine has been starting consistently at 10:01 for 2 months and it misses the first mnute of the show so I had to edit the season pass to start the recording a minute earlier.

Let me say my comments were not because I didn't like the episode. I liked it very much. Just ill-timed. I would have rather seen this earlier in the season instead of one of the filler episodes.

Not just fios. CBS has been starting POI a minute early on directv and it hasn't been reflected in the guide. I set the genie to start 1 minute earlier for POI after the second episode of the season.

I've noticed all season long its been starting early on my TiVo (missing about the first 30 seconds). Prior seasons the recording always picked up with about 10 seconds of the preceding commercial . . .

I believe it's time to Overthrow VerticalScope..
and Bring Back Huddler!


It's a shame that in the end TCU's playoff chances all came down to this . . .

I liked the episode, but agree its placement seemed a little strange. Not sure if they could have come up with as good as a season ender as last year. I could see them running this Samaritan plot line for another two years.

My fear that the do not intend to really wrap up anything this season only grows stronger after this installment.

Not sure how I felt about the last episode.

This is why I think POI is doomed. There's a segment watching because they find the AI stuff and AI wars fascinating and a segment watching that just wants another CBS weekly procedural with no underlying thread. Sometimes they overlap but there are folks in both camps who have become disinterested or are about to. The show loses viewers year over year.

I'm a big fan of POI but I did think the last episode was a smashing boor. Even with Reese who is a fav.

Not saying I agree or disagree, but I am not sure where they go after this. They may have boxed themselves in.

I think the weekly procedural camp will leave before the people who enjoy the main story arc.

Honestly, I hope they do a Lost or BSG and decide to end it before the show is canceled. Not sure if that is next year or the year after, but I can't see it going much longer than two years unless they pull a rabbit out of the hat.

I agree, the last episode sucked. But POI has been doing the same things since it started. It has been walking the line and stayed away from the boring procedural enough to be ground breaking. All TV ratings are down. People are watching time shifted, DVR, On demand, streaming, etc. Also, doesn't help that they put POI up against the sappy Chicago Fire in live ratings. They are basically even with each other ratings wise.

I'm a big fan of many TV shows throughout the years and have not watched a TV show live (other than sports) since the invention of the dual tuner DVR somewhere around 24 season 2. I know many who do the same. Check the live +7 or Live +30 ratings for a more accurate reading of ratings. POI will be here for a few more years.
