Person of Interest finale - spoilers

The season finale of Person of Interest was possibly the grimmest cliff-hanger I've ever seen:

The final episode of Person of Interest left the USA in an interesting state; a "panopticon" society where every action is noted and acted upon, where people appear to be being arrested because of e.g. being "deviant" rather than because they've actually committed a crime. And where the Skynet-equivalent computer has just been told that it's giving the orders...

I think that this will end badly because the new computer doesn't have The Machine's experience and will make bad choices. I'm also guessing that The Machine still has a few tricks up its sleeve and back door access into the new computer. It'll be interesting to see where it goes.


Is it just me that thinks this series is currently the best SF on TV? Certainly a lot more believable and scary than e.g. HYDRA's subversion of SHIELD in Agents...
