Finch's Book Club
The books of season 4: Nautilus and Brotherhood

From Nautilus: A History of Costume Design in Subversive Soviet Theater by Galina Demidov. (Screencap courtesy of Person of Interest Gallery at Screencapped.net.)

This book does not actually exist. (And shouldn’t the name should be Demidova for a woman? I don’t know a great deal about Russian names, but I believe that would be the correct version.) Also, the book was hollowed out to serve as a hiding place. But we’ll count it. We counted the hollowed-out Sense & Sensibility last season, after all. And the reference to subversive Soviet theater is an interesting reminder of the “Cold War” going on between Team Machine and Team Samaritan.

From Brotherhood: The Invisible Man by H. G. Wells. (Screencap courtesy of Jason.)

Of course, this is a real book. And Finch’s reason for giving it to Elias is pretty obvious. Though, digging a little deeper into the story — especially the title character — there could be more than one reason. For a crime boss, a book about a crazed, power-hungry egomaniac who comes to a terrible end could be a useful cautionary tale …

Personally, I like a little soy milk now and then … but that was a great line.

The books of season 4

(Hopefully I can do a better job keeping track than I did in season 3!)

In “Panopticon” we had New York Underground: An Illustrated History of Subterranean Engineering by Ruth Weaver.Which doesn’t actually appear to exist — but given the discovery that they were leading Finch to, I see why they felt the need to make it up!

Happy 46th Birthday Mr. JIm Caviezel

September 26, 1968

You are a true inspiration, a man of faith, character, and a devoted father and husband. As a gifted actor,  you have shared your talents and “you made good movies.” Jimmy Stewart is looking down with a smile! Many blessings on your special day.

GRAMMAR, PEOPLE!

If I get one more e-mail from Tumblr saying, “Your dashboard is literally on fire!” I will not be held responsible for my actions.

Why the Machine wouldn’t let Harold choose his own new identity

This is how it would have gone.

Harold: Ostrich?

The Machine: No.

Harold: Eagle?

The Machine: NO.

Harold: Penguin.

The Machine: Harold, are you starting to see a pattern here?

Harold: I don’t know what you mean. How about Thrush-Nightingale?

The Machine: HAROLD!
