ACE THE BAT HOUND!!!!!! OMG YOU GUYS THIS SHOW. Ace the BatHound who only speaks Dutch - that is fabulous (and true, I have heard of those special dogs, but I love that Reese not only recognizes it but knows the commands. and now has a puppy).

Also, Reese is hilariously surly in the episode, playing really well off Ken Leung's slightly manic accountant. people are always complaining in comments that the show is 'dour' and things like that, and I just don't even know what show they're watching. I mean, c'mon the dog chewed up millions of dollars in bonds! Reese threatened to go on strike staring at a traffic cam! Reese made bad puns about gag orders, lol. Plus that scene when Reese lays out the whole story of the dog and what they do -- cut to, dude flying out the window. LOLOL. yeah, "dour". Go watch a show with a laugh track if you don't know that's funny.

Meanwhile, Amy Acker is just deliciously creepy with Finch (and I envy her hair), and we get some backstory on how he taught the Machine. Also full on confirmation that the Machine is a full sentient AI, or at least getting there.


tune in next week: same bat time, same bat channel!

AAAAAAAAAAH, it was hilarious and awesome and I love surly Reese so much. Possibly I'll be coherent and make a thoughtful reply soon-ish, but not now. :D

well, you can see all the coherent thinky thoughts I was able to produce. LOL

One of the things I love about Root is is that she doesn't want to control the machine and use it for nefarious means, she may be a genius sociopath who has contempt for all the stupid people in the world, but when she sees that Finch has created an actual intelligent, possibly self aware AI she actually gets indignant that he locked it away and sold it to the government.

If she was a Sheldon or Loki type character I can already see the tons of fanfic that would get written about her and her AI rights beliefs.

we'll see if that carries through - she's a manipulator so she may be just telling Finch what she thinks he wants to hear It's an interesting motive though, either way.

But I have to admit when she said that, my first thought was "Girlfriend, have you never seen the Matrix?" heh
