    Anybody know if they got their budget slashed? If not then hopefully it means some big set pieces later in the series.

    That said some of the gunplay/stories were getting a bit silly in the last series so a toned down version might also work.

    Don't think there have been much news about their budget. Though, the show has been holding its own quite well considering all the other great TV shows on air atm.
    Agreed. All for the toning down of the gunplay, felt that it detracted from the plot more than I'd liked last season. Hopefully they shift the funds going into all that onto the set pieces and vfx work

    I take back everything negative I might've implied about the potential of this season; they've hit just about every shot they've taken and tonight's episode was five different kinds of excellent.

    I stopped watching in the middle of season 2 (or 3, can't remember) this show was really getting overly repetitive...
    felt like watching the same stuff in every episode... and I'm not just talking about the intro and credits :P

    It's the nature of a semi-procedural show but trust me when I say, things change. Plus you know, if you're that far in, you might as well stick with it. ;)

    Almost Human was good but too procedural. No overarching story and didn't seem like it was going anywhere.

    this is what I wanted to hear.
    if it gets awesome after that point, then I might as well resume where I left ?

    Tonight's episode was completely unexpected.

    MAJOR SPOILERS! DO NOT OPEN IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN TODAY'S AIRING!
    I did NOT expect Shaw to actually have the hots for Root. That came out of left field, although it was minorly foreshadowed as Root and her were shooting at the Samaritan operatives (How she mentioned they worked so well together and that she wish it could continue). Then it got all super depressing with Root basically screaming her face off as they think Shaw was killed, although next week's preview says quite the opposite.
    I can't wait for next week though.

    You might as well, here's a nice highlight reel of s3 but it does contain some spoilers i guess i'd recommed going along without watching.


    and current season trailer, again might be spoilers if you didn't see previous seasons:

    just watched this episode...

    like in chess, some times you need to sacrifice the queen.

    Probably my favourite episode of the series...!

    The music that played during each simulation!, the slow-mo effects, the chess flashbacks with the machine, FUSCO AND ROOT, the "simplified simulation", ROOT AND SHAW, and the ending with Shaw. Like I love most episodes of Person of Interest but this episode was unabashedly good, a straight A in my book.

    ...Shaw isn't really dead is she. right...? RIGHT...?

    Heard they had to write her out of the show cause the actor is pregnant but maybe she wasn't actually killed and they'll bring her back later. Looking forward to next week.

    I dunno if it is the best, it was great though, when
    finch died and then it turns out it was a simulation, i also lol'd at simplified simulation
    Still i think the one i liked the most in this season was last episode with elias.

    btw I like how they made this cliffhanger where
    you can hear the shot but can't see who shot who, leaving posibility shaw will survive, then again based on how they killed carter people all already assume shaw is dead and write comments with rip :D

    I was not expecting that ending!(even though it was abit spoiled by the scenes for the next episode) It was a great episode, music, slo-mo, and plot. It was fantastic.

    The ending may have caught me off guard, but I could see that relationship from a mile away. It was being pushed pretty hard in some episodes this season.
