To distract myself from the next hockey game (Pens up 3-2 in SCF! Could win the cup tomorrow!!!) I got a Netflix account for the first time in years. I had a whole list of stuff to watch and ended up starting with Person of Interest, which I'd never been super excited about based on on what I'd heard until I heard it had canon queer lady romance.

It turns out that happens way later, though - right now it's all a wealthy genius with unorthodox ideas about philanthropy and a special forces vet teaming up to stop murders via a post-9/11 flavor of Minority Report. Also it turns out the former is Michael Emerson and the latter is Jim Caviezel, which I had somehow failed to realize. Actually it turns out that I can't recognize Caviezel at all when he's not Jesus, not even a little.

So far I'm enjoying it! The dude to lady ratio is awfully high, unfortunately, but the cases are fun and the ongoing arc is fairly low key currently, which helps me keep watching. And Caviezel does a great job making Reese really creepy. Like, I would not want to talk to that man on the street - even on TV he rings ALL the alarm bells. And Michael Emerson, whom I didn't really appreciate on LOST (I was 100% about the good guys on that show), is just a joy to watch.

Haven't had a lot of strong feelings about specific eps so far, but I just watched 1.06, which has the fixer Zoe Morgan in it, and I LOVE HER. She is so great. There's all this mutual respect between her and Reese, which is my kryptonite, and she's so competent, and I like that she's a tidge older than I'd expect, somehow. And it sounds like we might even see her again! (Don't tell me if we do. NO SPOILERS.)
