poi cast & crew

7

Can we all just give a massive round of applause to our handsome directors of person of interest and the rest of our beautiful POI Crew and Cast. They have created the most thrilling and awesome show of all time and they work their butts off everyday to make sure the show keeps sweeping us off our feet. There’s not a day that goes by, that We don’t appreciate EVERYTHING you guys are doing for us.Thank you so so so much Jonah and Greg and the wrest of the POI Crew and Cast. We love you’s. Sincerely, the Irrelevants.

I am literally furious at CBS right now (more than normal anyway). Buzzfeed just put up an article that goes into great detail about the sad demise of Person of Interest and it just made my blood boil. They refused to tell Jonah and Greg that the show was cancelled, even through releasing the airdate for season 5 and it’s absurd two-episode-a-week schedule. They forced Greg and Jonah’s hand and the guys finally threw their hands up and just said they were done. Without getting word from the network, the creators made the decision and announced that the 5th season would be the final chapter of POI…purely for the sake of the cast and crew who had been living in limbo for months. On top of this, CBS refused to let the writers do what they truly wanted with these last 13 episodes and go fully serialized with the Samaritan plot. The forced them to keep the “number of the week” format despite the fact that they were no longer invested in the long term future of the show. Jonah even said that he wished they’d had more episodes to explore the major mythology of the show, though he’s still very proud of the final season. 

I already know CBS makes horrible decisions in which shows they decide to make. But to see what little respect they had for these people who devoted their lives to making this brilliant television show….it just fills me with so much disgust that I can’t even fully express how mad I am. Everyone involved in this show deserved SO much better than this garbage network they were saddled with. I’m eternally grateful for all of their hard work and dedication to making this series as wonderful as they could in the face of such hardship with the network. I only wish they could have gotten to tell the story exactly how they wanted. But they still did a fucking amazing job considering their restrictions. Oh…and I hope CBS gets thrown into a dumpster fire. 

Reason POI fans aren’t super angry about the death of Root is becuase the show runners didn’t use an LGBTQ+ character to get views and ratings. They treated the fans with extreme respect and didn’t kill Root off for “shock value”. 

The POI cast and crew are wonderful people who never, for a single moment, used the fans or the characters for there own benefit.  

I’m so emotional about the POI news. Sarah coming back for 8-9 episodes… and “I think Shaw has come around to realize maybe this is the person for her in the world”…. and Greg says fans should have “more than hope,” however, because Shoot has officially moved beyond subtext….

IS THIS REAL???

I’m so fucking happy. This really is the best show and with the best people…and I’m just…

I’m not used to trust people, especially tv writers -we all know why- so it kinda freaks me out being aware of how much I actually trust POI cast and crew, but at the same time I’m pretty sure my ‘faith’ is well placed when I think that Chris Fisher is posting a POI Noir everyday til S5 finally airs (which means he’s gonna do this for 45 days) just to make us, the fans, happy.
