Anyway, for general reference, currently produced TV I'm watching (usually a day or two after it airs, since I get my episodes from the internet - much more convenient to watch via computer than via TV):

The Blacklist (NBC) - A bit gory, but worth it.

Designated Survivor (NBC) - New, but looks really good.

And with that, series I tried to watch but couldn't get into:

Revolution (NBC) - the pacing on this show was good in Season 1, then went all weird. I gave up two eps into S2. It is not a series which suited my ADD, apparently.

Scorpion (CBS) - It got...a little too cloying, I guess. Premise worked, but they got too damn cute.

And cancelled series:

Intelligence (CBS) - Damn, and it was a good series too!

Covert Affairs (USA) - five seasons and they cancel it on a season-ending cliffhanger?!

Allegiance (NBC) - Cancelled 5 eps in. Cry.

State of Affairs (CBS) - Not cancelled yet, but indications are it won't be back. Damn. (Update: Yup, cancelled after one season.)

Minority Report (Fox) - Not cancelled yet, but indications are it won't be back. Cancelled on a cliffhanger after 10 episodes. GAH!

And, finally, shows that made it through their runs:

Person of Interest (CBS) - I loved this series immensely. From beginning to end.
(Mainlining - as in, watching a series from S1, Ep 1 straight through. I did it over a few days, given the 24 ep season.)

OK. Quick evaluation:

OMG OMG WHY DID I MISS THIS WHEN IT FIRST AIRED?

It pushes all my TV thriller buttons ever.

In light of recent events, it made me...giggle nervously at points the scripts obviously intended to be fictional, where the scriptwriters obviously intended the reference to be fictional or a throwaway. Cause the programs they thought were fiction...were real. (Hi, STELLAR WIND)

Lose a half point, however, for the Machine seeming a little too...aware of itself.

Rating: 4.5/5
