hedda62: Harold Finch, half in shadow, text: Oh, Mr. Finch (finch)
I figured just after the penultimate episode of Person of Interest was a good time to pop back in here. I've been busy, and not really feeling the fannish love for anything, but here's a brief TV wrap-up, and that's the right word, since so many of my shows have come to an end.

POI: I've enjoyed this season on the whole, or at least felt the usual mix of admiration and dissatisfaction. Last night's episode: I was operating on about two hours of sleep, so likely missed things, but the plot seemed to have taken several leaps past logic. Which is par for the course on this show: set things up for years, and yet have smart characters fail to take ordinary precautions or question stuff that seems weird. Anyway, next week will be it, and we'll all get over it - and I kind of want to write Machine-POV fic except that might mean having to watch too many episodes over again so I can figure out what was going on.

The Good Wife: Didn't love the ending, not so much because of the non-conclusive nature (I am all about that) but because of the it's-all-about-men thing, though I suppose that is thematically right, just really annoying.

Castle: Let's just pretend the last season or two didn't happen, or that we never found out all the backstage gossip, or that they had time to plan out the series finish.

Sleepy Hollow: Boy, am I glad I stopped watching this at the beginning of this season. Oy.

Agent Carter: Sorry that it couldn't keep going, but my investment in the Marvel-verse is pretty shallow anyway.

Elementary: Actually that was a pretty satisfying season. John Noble, aren't you glad you got killed off on Sleepy Hollow?

Orphan Black: Still enjoying this too. OMG Helena and her hat. And her deer.

I am going to try not to get hooked on anything else, and spend more evenings reading or writing. Or, you know, sleeping.

I'm over a season behind on POI, but I've heard enough good things lately that I'm giving it a try again. I'm doing my level best to stay spoiler-free; we'll see how long that lasts.

The Good Wife: I didn't at all mind it being inconclusive or less than happy, but I thought it was very poorly paced. Too much focus on the wrong things in the final episodes, not enough time spent on some developments for them to either be clear or have the impact they should have. Ah, well. When that show was good, it was stellar, and when it wasn't good, it was still better than most other things on television.

Have you been reading anything good lately?

TV writing is absolutely fascinating to me. There are so many thing to juggle, and it's so collaborative, and you have to work within such a rigid structure. I am looking forward to catching up on POI, though I'm not sure I'll ever have the same level of investment as I did when I found it during the post-S2 break. Those were the days....

Oh, I love Divine Cities. The characters, and the worldbuilding! I read the first one during Yuletide signups, too late to offer it, and was over the moon to get matched on someone who happened to request it. I've only spoken to a handful of people who've read those.

I have the last Temeraire book on hold at the library, but I may break down and buy a copy rather than waiting a few weeks. I'm glad the end was satisfying--it's been such fun following that series.
