I'm always like "Why are there small children on this ship? What are you doing? That's so dangerous."

Even as the crew gets a little more experience, the White Base doing anything still feels like a minor miracle.

But Disney, which also owns ABC, now owns 20th Century Fox studios, which produces The Gifted.

What copyright magic is going to have to happen, I wonder. Perhaps FOX will just pony up for the license fee.

ICE-9 is a reference to Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut. This show owes a lot to Vonnegut, as well as Gibson. Throw some Camus in there as well.

I still really haven't processed my feelings re: Root's death. So let's talk about her life instead.

Let's talk about a girl who saw the worst inclinations of humanity (cruelty and apathy) take away someone she loved, and declared that humanity was "bad code," that the universe was meaningless. It took someone non-human to convince her that humanity was even worth considering, let alone loving. And someone who's humanity was often questioned to choose to love. Shaw and Root are not "good" people, but they choose to do good.

There's a move from nihilism to absurdism in Root's philosophy (and the shows'), that the universe is chaotic and meaningless. It's up to us to give it meaning. We can choose who we want to be.

Maybe I'm wrong, but that's what I take from the show.

Extra History

So...a decade of political and religious upheaval is not the best time to start a war, but hostilities between Iran and the Eastern Roman Empire reignite.

So we didn't know if Person of Interest had been renewed or not at this point, and we had to wait a year for new episodes. POI was a casualty of a falling out between CBS and Warner Studios. CBS switched to making stuff in it's in-house studio and avoiding licensing fees.

I always cry when The Machine calls Harold "father." She's a practically omniscient force, but I'm still inclined to think of her like a child. "No, honey, you did your best. That's all you can do"
