Ninja News – CBS Renewals

Picture 203

Jumping on the back of renewing the Big Bang Theory for three seasons, CBS went ahead and announced the renewals of no less than 18 of their shows. Here’s a list of all the shows that they want to see more of.















Still no word on The Crazy Ones, but don’t hold your breath on that just yet. No word either on Hostages, but I really don’t think that’ll get brought back. Could be wrong, though!

Person Of Interest – Season 3 Episode 14 – Provenance Review

ImageJohn pretty much came out with exactly how he’s feeling at the beginning of Provenance with his line: “New suit, new man.” He’s looking good in the new threads, but let’s be real for a quick minute. He’s not over Carter’s death yet. No one is. This week, the guys are hunting down a professional thief, and they don’t just have that to deal with, someone called Agent Bouchard is after the same burglar. He’s been on the case for years (of course he has) and is a bit of a thorn in the team’s side throughout.


ImageShe’s after the Gutenburg Bible. It’s the first printed book in the West, so probably worth a pretty penny! Reese and Shaw attend an event at the Metropolitan Museum of History, where Kelly, a suspected spy is working. It was kind of obvious that after Shaw spoke to her she was going to be heavily involved in the episode. Turns out all you need to be is a hell of a gymnast and you can pretty much rob anything (especially with an Olympic silver medal. LOLZ). She’s been stealing for years, and is the same thief Bouchard has been after all this time. So, after we all saw that coming, there was a little twist. Her number popped up because they had to protect her, not take her in. Provenance felt like an episode that hit the reset button, at the same time as giving us a different kind of number to deal with.

ImageThe person she’s been working for wants her to take the Bible to pay a debt she owes him, and when the team confront her Finch asks about all her murdered accomplices and decoys. Cyril, her boss, is the one who does the killing, and naturally they agree to help her. Shaw even goes with her to steal the Bible while the others are running point, causing problems for the security teams. They get the Bible and go to ‘give it’ to Cyril. She hands it over and tells him she wants her daughter back. She’s done working for him. Shaw shoots him and the coppers run in.

ImageFusco comes into the bar after Shaw shoots the place up, and ‘arrests’ her, keeping her out of harms way like he always does. Kelly’s fate is in Bouchard’s hands now (because any of the main characters would actually be alright with that), but in another pretty obvious move, he let’s her leave the interrogation. He leaves a key to her cuffs on the desk. Anyone else find this pretty dumb? He’s been chasing her for years, and even though she’s not the one selling the items on, she’s definitely the one doing the stealing. So, why didn’t he just arrest her? Later, Bouchard. You’re an idiot! Reese saves her daughter (par for the course) and all is well.

ImageLet’s face it, Carter’s death was a huge moment in this show, and, as it should have, it’s changed the entire landscape of the show. The touching moment at the end of the episode when they were all sat around talking about how the team was back together was awesome. Reese isn’t forgetting Carter anytime soon, and we could all feel his pain when he poured one out for her. Carter’s memory will live on for a long time, and even though we’re back to business, the flag’s still very much flying at half mast.

– Shaw’s white dress? Not really a fan.

– Fusco saying that he could do it for a living was pretty funny. Guess he’s losing faith in the force.

– Like Reese’s new suit!



Person of Interest – Season 3 Episode 13 – 4C Review

ImageIt’s nice to see the show taking a different direction these days. They’ve never minded to change things up over on Person of Interest, with the intro alone having been revamped at least three times. The machine is now working off page, and instead of being controlled (somewhat) by Finch, it’s growing and working by itself, cancelling and delaying flights to put Reese where it wants him.

ImageIt doesn’t like to give up, either – Finch finding out the hard way that what the machine wants the machine gets. It spots him in an airport and cancels the flight he’s on, instead forcing the terminal computer to cough up a flight to Rome (1st class, no less. Guess the machine looks after it’s friends). Once he’s in the air he receives a text that says 4C, and he’s supposed to know what to do next.

ImageI’ll admit, this episode was definitely a bit down the silly end of the scale. No more than five different assassins try to kill the target (I guess Virgin has a hitman discount, or something) and Reese has to fend them off one by one. Admittedly, the guy they were after had set up a website that connect people to drugs, cutting out half of the cartels business in the process, but I still didn’t buy all the killers. The fact that the only person who saw anything at all was a little kid was also a little dumb. How does Reese fix this problem, you ask? Give the kid a dash of scotch in his sippy cup! The flight attendant didn’t even question him. I mean, really?

Reese takes out the last assasin who’s flying the plane, and leaves them in a bit of a pickle, but because Finch is a technical genius, he whips out a virtual flight deck and lands the plane from the comfort of home (good thing he’d left the Xbox360 remote in the other room). A+ for skills there, Finchy!


4C dragged a bit, and was in part a filler episode that was designed to have Finch save the day, and gain Reese’s trust again in the process. I thought it was typical of Reese to want a new suit before leaving Italy. Maybe we’ll see him in red pinstripes next week!

The team is back together, and is now using the memory of Detective Carter to drive Finch and Reese back into the field to stop as many people from getting hurt as possible. It was a nice end to the episode, and hopefully we’ll soon get back to the rip roaring action Person of Interest has always been known for. I’m looking forward to Reese kicking some more ass!
