    @ all of her twist

    No it certainly does not!

  • Parker Wyeth

    I don’t know if you guys remember, but a couple of years ago there was a lot of tension between Taraji P Henson(POI) and CBS. She voiced she was being excluded from the marketing and promo for POI.

    A friend that did a reading for a new show said they thought she was supposed to be the lead actor on the show. She’s also been on talk shows about doing more movies. She had an Oscar nom. for Curious Case of BB.

    They’re may be trying out Root and/or Shaw to replace her if she leaves. I don’t mind their characters. They just have to find the right balance.

    I just hope they don’t try to make it a Navy threesome with the NCIS lead ins. The season premiere had a Navy storyline and it was pretty boring.

    24 and parents still buying stuff for them? Not anybody I knew. Regardless, statistics show that older folks are less likely to change their minds and buy or try something new, so advertising is not as effect with them as the younger crowd.

    I still think all four comedies on ABC will get full seasons.

    @Parker Wyeth

    They weren’t just excluding her from the promos, the writing for the show wasn’t including her and that was another issue. I can understand an actress getting hired to play what it supposed to be a significant role in a series not being happy that this wasn’t the case. It also doesn’t make sense that she’d have to complain because they should have just been writing for her from the start, Fusco too. I read that the network actually had to tell the producers to do more with her in season one or we wouldn’t have even gotten what we got of her then which I’m happy for.

    In my opinion neither Root nor Shaw can replace her and they shouldn’t. No one should be replaced. They had a fine cast and all they had to do was write for them. I read that Shaw was brought in as more of a Reese replacement, not Carter. Allegedly, Jim’s child is having health issues and so that takes some of his time and he was also exhausted from all of the stunt work in season 1 and wanted a bit less screen time.

    If this is true, then that provided the perfect opening for them to write a bit more for Taraji P. Henson’s Carter and Kevin Chapman’s Fusco. The main lead wanted a bit less, the lead woman and another regular wanted a bit more so the solution is obvious, right? Apparently not to Jonathan Nolan, and so we got Shaw.

    I don’t think we needed new regulars. They could have achieved a better balance in writing for the 4 main leads with everybody being happy because Jim wanted (allegedly) a bit less and 2 other leads obviously could have used a bit more. Carter’s military training and kick-assery could have offset some of Jim’s reduced stunt work, and maybe bringing in a sometimes helper that could have been a former work associate of Reese’s could have offset the rest. I’d say preferably a younger guy that has a good height and build for that kind of work.

    For me, Shaw would have never been a part of it, but since a few people like her, they could still bring her around for a couple of episodes per season. Neither the helper-guy nor Shaw nor Root would need to become regulars. Recurring was all they needed, and I’m being kind giving Shaw that.

  • iHeartJoss

    @ Parker Wyeth “@iHeartJoss What does “politically correct” have to do with character development?”

    That’s the point that I was making. We didn’t need “gender equality” in the casting for the regulars of the show because we already had that considering the women that came through for one-offs and as recurring characters. All we needed was for them to write for the 4 main leads and develop the relationships between them and their individual stories.

    @Bored Now

    Since I understand why you defend Shaw now, I’m not playing this game. The “delusions” are yours.

  • Bored Now


    Except that my apparent ‘delusions’ are rooted in facts whereas as your opinions are based entirely on crazy-fan-character-hatred that simply doesn’t hold water in the real world. Not a game. Just how it is.

  • Restless

    One offs does not equal gender equality. Main characters that are both genders is gender equality. One offs and recurring are better than nothing, but that’s not equality.

  • iHeartJoss

    @Restless I didn’t say that it did. I don’t think you’re understanding my post. Like I said, we didn’t need “gender equality,” which is what they did. They thought they were helping the series, but it doesn’t look like that’s the case. What they’ve created is a cluttered mess. And I don’t know how “equal” things are when all (count ’em 6!) leads don’t get equal screen time… That’s a problem.

    @Bored Now

    Now, I’m bored. Your delusions aren’t rooted in facts. You’re just lying, but not surprised. The numbers speak for themselves.

  • iHeartJoss

    “One offs and recurring are better than nothing, but that’s not equality.”

    I’d say that it is when they get a good amount of coverage. That means men and women are covered about the same on the show in general, but we didn’t need them to cast 2 women as leads and make the show essentially about them. Carter’s still on a back burner, and Reese and Finch have been somewhat sidelined. Sometimes Fusco is even forgotten! Wasn’t the show supposed to be about these 4? (That’s rhetorical.)

    If this is what you and Bored Now want, then you’re getting it. I didn’t watch this past episode and I don’t know when or if I’ll watch another. Smh.

  • Bored Now


    I defy you to point out a single lie in anything I’ve said. Besides, how can offering a generalised yet common sense opinion be a lie? I’m not stating a fact when I say that the day and time change is going to make more of a difference than any single character. I’m offering a better, more logical option.

    Less people seem to watch television at 10pm than they do at 9pm. Therefore moving a show to the later slot would hit its numbers. Change the day too and you have another practical reason why less might choose to tune in live.

    There are far less people who are going to let an individual character spoil their enjoyment of a show they otherwise enjoy than there are those who simply don’t want to stay up an extra hour when they have an early start the next day.

    Not lies. Not even facts. Just common sense and a more likely possibility.

  • tim_m

    LOL at POI dying. You do realize until this week when it was down slightly against the voice it was going up. As soon as its up against CF it’ll be right back in the 2’s.

  • POIFanatic

    Lol at the nonsensical IHeartJoss. She gives me a good laugh.

  • POIFanatic

    @headless or is that brainless? As one person correctly pointed out, the intelligent show is way over the head of the 18-24 who have an attention span of a knat. They are all over the place and to sit and watch a well written tv show is just not their thing; put on a music show which they can check in from time to time and that is about their speed.
    Slow down there with the stereotyping, buddy. I’m 24 and I’ve five other friends in the age group of 20-26 who all absolutely love POI.

  • POIFanatic

    Since she goes on about how fact-based her obvious delusions are, iheartjoss, Kevin Chapman wanted less work since he was working on movies last season and hence, they started giving Fusco less screentime.

  • iHeartJoss


    Okay, and we weren’t talking about last season there. We’re talking about this season. Look, I know you’re fanatical about the show, but the fact remains that they’ve made changes that haven’t exactly worked out. That’s not delusional; that’s true.

    You seem like the type of fanatical fan that could see the show lose half of its audience and still say there’s not a problem and anyone that says there is is someone to laugh at. Lol, dude. You give me a good laugh.

  • iHeartJoss

    And since we’re on the topic, I wonder if one of the reasons why Kevin Chapman started going for extra work was because he wasn’t getting much on POI to begin with. Considering what he said during his interview with Movievine, it didn’t seem like he had a lot of faith in TPTB at POI wanting to do much with the Fusco character:

    A quote from the interview:

    “Kevin: Yeah! Carter basically saved Lionel’s life at the end of last season. It’s funny because I was very surprised, I mean I didn’t know Fusco was going to get out alive last year…

    Well, now, there’s a fact for you. Maybe the reason why he got extra work was because he didn’t think Fusco was going to make it. Gee, I wonder what would have made him think that??? (And that was sarcasm.)

    Personally, I think the admitted sociopaths and fanatics need to stop. There are delusions being thrown around here, but they aren’t coming from me.
