Person of Interest

“You are being watched. The government has a secret system–a machine that spies on you every hour of every day.”
Well, if that’s not terrifying, what is? In this episode, we discuss the myriad ways in which the TV show Person of Interest (POI) defies expectations, from breaking out of the cop procedural mold to challenging our assumptions about government surveillance. The show has an amazing cast of characters, and we spend a fair amount of time talking about the unique, sexy, and very fun romance between Samantha Goves (code name Root) and Sameen Shaw. And, as always, we evaluate how feminist the show is. Have a listen. And if you don’t, the Machine will know.
