I’ve finally got to see this. Root babbles. Reese is all sweaty and bleeding. I can’t recall most of the details of this mythic universe. An annoying song blares and Finch wears ugly hats. Root bleeds and waves a gun. Fusco looks red and is in peril and then he isn’t. Everyone looks coated in fake tan. Carrie Preston and Brett Cullen guest star.
Finch is shrill with nervousness. There are flashbacks to 2006 where Finch went on about the potentially damaging effects of AI. In the present there is death, civilians enlisted to stop Root and sinister unknown men with hostile attitudes lurk. Reese shows Finch his massive tool. There are unnoticed gunfights in NY. This was mediocre with a too convenient nitrogen canister.
“Fed his teeth.”
“May the paranoid survive.”
“I don’t speak nerd.”
“History is upon you.”
The freaky machine blips. There is Rinch. The charisma vacuum cast indulge in innate ordinariness. There are adverse acts in this un-ambitious ep. The machine sees the team as a threat. There are flashbacks to 1997 and mumbling about Day R. Seasons 3&4 were a spiralling chaotic mess and this is no real improvement. Reese has cool detachment and quiet damaged fury. There is no quiet decency and this was not gloriously daft. This show is now less memorable than seasons 1&2. What happened to the hitwoman who chased Reese? What is the deal with the ex con?
“Loot a Best Buy.”
“I’m literally watching paint dry.”
“That warrants scrutiny.”
Truth Be Told
There are flashbacks to 2010 when Reese was CIA and into special activities. Exposition is dumped. This was excruciating monotonousness. Why is Root allowed to hang around as a useful lunatic? Reese runs into his former CIA boss. Reese has an unbalanced emotional state, simmering fury and a violent personality. The evil AI has had a wholly negative effect on the show. Reese and Finch creepy monotone at each other. Reese tries to justify the unjustifiable. This was futile absurdity and society is warped.
“You are all irrelevant.”
“Be cautious in your answers.”
“What I need is a bigger gun.”
“None of us need that.”
“Your surprise is disheartening.”
This okay ep is all about Shaw and her dark delusions, her turning wits and her colossal anger management issues. Greer babbles. Shaw is a fuming cauldron of resentments with venomous distain. There is a gratuitous Shaw/Root scene. This has an obvious twist.
The gang look into an acoustic surveillance system. Fusco is menaced by associate of Elias the rubbish gangster. A man named Garvin is in peril. Garvin babbles about a missing woman. Fusco bumbles and there are no emotional lessons. People look like rain-mac pervs. Root encounters the ex con whose name is Blackwell. This ep full of male rage is not unsettling. The twist of this ep is that Elias the rubbish gangster is not dead. Why won’t TPTB kill the blight off?!?!?
