At the end of the third season of Person of Interest, we found ourselves watching a declaration of war between two artificial intelligences – The Machine and Samaritan – and the leads of the series becoming what might be the only patch of resistance to Greer (who so reminds me of The X-Files’ Cancer Man) and Samaritan’s taking over North America (and, maybe, the world).
Season Four finds Team Machine mostly utilizing aliases that take advantage of a bit backdoor software identity protection that was slipped into Samaritan – but overall, the season is a few different kinds of warfare – AI vs. AI; Team Machine/Finch vs. Team Samaritan/Greer; Greer vs. Control, and the Brotherhood vs. Elias. It’s the most complex season yet and watching the entirety of it back-to-back is a delight – even if the wars on so many levels lead to casualties.

As someone who just started watching Xena on Netflix last year, the one thing I dreamed of was watching the show in glorious HD. Let’s face it the quality of the DVDs and Netflix stream are pretty bad. I had a chance to talk to the great Lucy Lawless about her new gig as a Witch on Salem Season 2 – which premieres April 5th on WGN.
At the end of our talk, I asked her if she thinks Xena will ever come out on Blu-ray and her response was she didn’t believe so, or at least there weren’t any plans as far as she knows. Going on to say that considering the way it was filmed, she didn’t think it would ever come out. But then she also didn’t quite know how remastering works – so maybe there’s a chance.
