CBS finally did it; they finally put Person of Interest out of our misery. Season 5 for this formerly great show will limp onto the schedule May 3rd at 10pm, retaking it’s time slot from Limitless. They will then show 2 episodes a week on Monday at 10 and again on Tuesday at 10. Only 13 episodes were ordered for the final season of this clunker.
I should be sad about this since I was so into this fandom in seasons 1-3, but I’m not. In a perverse kind of way, POI deserves some credit for this site. fangirlu was so pissed off by the racism experienced by POC fans in this fandom she decided to create this safe space for fans of WOC.
One has to wonder just how big the Taraji Bandwagon has to be to hold all the people who have jumping on since the premiere of Empire. The right answer appears to be “Pretty damn big” as yet another honor was announced this morning hot on the heels of her receiving the Influencer Award from the Accessories Council just last night, now she is to be honored along with Amy Schumer at the VH1 Big in 2015 with Entertainment Weekly party.
“Amy Schumer and Taraji P. Henson dominated the cultural conversation and helped define the biggest moments in pop culture throughout 2015,” Chris McCarthy, General Manager of VH1 and Logo Networks, said in a release.
I get insanely happy whenever I read about Taraji getting more recognition. I first became a fan of hers on Person of Interest and I furious when her character was killed off for the younger, beiger character. (Her character remains the only major character killed off the show despite the producers claims that anyone can die at any time. The white people are all still alive.) Since then POI has dropped in the ratings like a paralyzed falcon and Taraji has soared. Living well is truly the best revenge.
