Sci-Fi Cancellation Watch: What’s Alive, What’s Dead, And What’s Brand New
Renewed: Person of Interest
The Bottom Line: No surprises here at all. I still need to go back and give Person of Interest a second chance, as all I keep hearing is that it transformed itself from a dry procedural with an admittedly good cast into a genuinely compelling exploration of artificial intelligence. And one that’s about to enter its fourth season! That’s damned impressive on CBS, a network whose lineup is largely made up of sitcoms, reality shows, and programs with CSI or NCIS somewhere in the title. Also, Amy Acker is on Person of Interest now! I am a sucker for Amy Acker, and not just because she’s from my hometown.
Can’t say I’ll be sad to see Intelligence go. I made it two episodes before I bailed on the show, which was basically a straight-faced, less entertaining version of Chuck, and one that squandered the talents of Josh Holloway. Say, is Person of Interest hiring…?
