With everything else on hiatus, Person of Interest kicks off its bizarrely timed ‘Winter Event’ with Root in a bear costume. This is a very serious show, I swear.
How can something so impressive leave me feeling underwhelmed? I wanted to like this movie a whole lot more, but I'm mostly just mildly disappointed.

'Nightmare of Eden' has all of this era's weaknesses and hardly any of its strengths.
