they have really kicked it up a notch this series

Top 30 Favourite Person of Interest Episodes

Been wanting to do this for a while, and I thought I’d do it now because…hey, seems as good a time as any. I hum and ha over the order, but these are pretty solidly my top 30 favourites even if the order fluctuates and my top 5 are nice and concrete for the moment. And I’ll do some short reasons that, as I come back and edit this, get a bit long in the top 10.

30. Most Likely To…

Directed by Kevin Hooks

Written by Melissa Scrivner Love and Denise The

The first of many Denise The written or co-written episodes on this list, I love how this episode manages to weave together major plot developments with Vigilance with a fun number plot that they get a lot of mileage out of. And it’s kinda fun to see Mayor Natural Eyeliner from The Dark Knight Trilogy. 

29. Sotto Voce

Directed by Margot Lulick

Written by Sabir Pirzada

I have some issues with this episode in the grand scheme of the season (I think Shaw’s return should have had a full episode to itself, but I also know there were a lot of behind the scenes constraints so I try not to be so hard about that even if it’s not ideal), but on it’s own, I think it’s nice and tightly paced, with heartfelt moments from Root and Shaw, heart-pounding ones with the Die Hard-style setup, a lot of fun with the Finch/Elias team up and the final musical sequence is one of my favourites of the series. The shot I picked might be one of my favourites from the series, and I love it as a callback to the pilot. 

28. .exe

Directed by Greg Plageman

Written by Greg Plageman and Erik Mountain

I do wish we had gotten a full episode within this AU, but what we got I quite liked. Amy Acker as The Machine is a treat, some great Mayhem Twins moments, and I have to say that the “dark Finch” theme is one of my favourite pieces from the series.

27. Panopticon

Directed by Richard J. Lewis

Written by Erik Mountain and Greg Plageman

I didn’t love this episode the first time. I thought it was fine, but didn’t love it. Boy did that change after seeing how the season unfolded. All the characters get great moments, the first look at this world dominated by Samaritan is fantastic, Martine’s introduction, and how they kick off both the season arcs right away works wonderfully.

26. Mors Praematura

Directed by Helen Shaver

Written by Dan Dietz

The first time Root and Shaw really work together, it’s great seeing how they bounce off each other and where their dynamic starts to evolve. And if that wasn’t enough, I’m a big fan of Vigilance/Collier as antagonists, so having them appear here is icing on the cake for me.

‘Glee’ got pretty terrible, but here are nine times it was great. (And one time it was amazing.)

Before the series finale on Friday, let’s remember that the show was once groundbreaking.

2) Blaine’s introduction with “Teenage Dream” (Season 2, Episode 6)

The show really kicked its casting up a notch with Broadway star Darren Criss playing Kurt’s love interest Blaine, particularly with this excellent performance of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream”:

4) Kurt comes out to his dad (Season 1, Episode 4)

In 2009, it still seemed like a big deal to have an openly gay teenager on a primetime network show. If you want to know why Chris Colfer and Mike O’Malley got Emmy nominations, watch this scene: (videos at the link)


I think they missed the best moment (IMHO) on Glee - the Klaine proposal cuz that moment was sweet perfection - every second of it.
