Yes, I pretty much figured with the shortened season unfortunately.

Apparently in order to be PC, all series must now incorporate a nod to the gay community.

Apparently, in order to be realistic, TV series now acknowledge that gay people exist in our society as regular people.

Although they hope someone else picks up the show this is a worse case scenario, since the writers may not wrap up the AI battle theme in these last (maybe) 13 episodes leaving us hanging if nobody picks up the series. If they knew it was finito, they could do a nice wrap-up in 13 eps.

Pretty pathetic when you cancel a POI to make room for a super "girl" - are they so desperate they have to go for the 12-year-old demo now?

It sounds like they knew in a way, with the way they brought back Shaw relatively sooner than they probably thought they would. So there's probably some wrap up to some of the storylines.

I suppose they will leave a small door open in case another network is interested in picking it up.

They could leave a big hole and still create a satisfying end to the season that would work for people. They just have to resolve enough tensions. For example, Shaw gets saved, Greer gets killed, and Samaritan's control over the govt. and other things gets greatly reduced, but it is still around to come back later.

On another note, I think they should put Shahi back in her cheerleader outfit at some point in one episode:

How about The Machine and Samaritan merge (become one entity) and The Machine teaches all its learned about humanity from Harold to its Samaritan portion?

Or the machine tricks Samaritan into calculating the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything, leaving it no spare CPU cycles to waste on the subjugation of mankind?

enjoy it now, first 2-3 seasons were really good but IMO it got a lot worse as it went on. I found myself thinking it was pretty silly for the last bit of season 3 and 4.

Will watch the final season just to ride it out though.

IMO it was best when achieving incremental strategic goals under Samaritan's radar, like acquiring the indestructible briefcase; not so good when just reacting to Samaritan's latest tactic...

Just got into season 2. Still liking it. Some of the episodes are really fantastic.

As much as I've enjoyed POI, last season seemed to drag on forever and at a few points, I almost had to force myself to watch .. I hope they pack as much as possible into the final "short season" .. sometimes, I think a 10-13 episode season is better for some shows .. look at "Strike Back" for instance and any number of others ..

I have found myself liking the 13-episode season more and more after watching shows on FX and Netflix. If they are well-done, it leaves you wanting more instead of a 22-episode season that contains a number of filler episodes.

This is the last season, so, hopefully, we won't be "wanting more."

I was thinking about this when I noticed I was on episode 20 or something of season 1.

Actually a 13 episode season could be fantastic. A Fall, Winter, and Spring season plus the usual Summer slate. More shows and, wait for it, no repeats.

Well she wanted to take an extended break when she had her twins so I think she's going to take another break after these final 13.
