    Love this show! The most recent episode is on my DVR, will be looking forward to it more now. Was wondering when they were going to hack a Model S on the show! Figured Harold would have tried first with his trustee laptop.

    He didn't hack it, Harold comments that he is capable of driving himself and having the car drive itself is overkill and the machine is just showing off (I'm paraphrasing, don't remember the exact words)

    Just watched it, Harold said, 'Novelty notwithstanding, I could have driven myself...'

    And the machine replies, 'Yes, but why leave anything to chance, you have enough to think about...'

    Sorry Harold, AP is NOT a novelty! Great show, great car.

    I agree... great show and makes you more paranoid about big brother and AI. I'm kinda glad this is the final season since it's been going for a while but it does feel like they are rushing it. For example, why did John Greer sacrifice himself in the room with Harold? Made no sense.

    One of my favorite shows... I saw it the other day and when they were using a Model S it was a real bonus! What I really loved is that they didn't add corny engine sounds to the vehicle!

    Anyone hoping for a POI - Washington DC spin-off, following the lines of every other CBS drama?

    According to the producers, there won't be any spin-off.

    Great show indeed. Loved it. Too bad it had to end due to low ratings.

    It's hard to believe the show had low ratings considering how relevant premise of the show is today. Not to mention Shaw...

    Yes, I enjoyed seeing the Tesla — with the machine driving — in the second to last episode. I've enjoyed the POI series and even how they ended it.

    I felt like it all ended too soon... Like the show was driving along and suddenly drove off a cliff. Considering they seemed to drag out everything else in the show. I understood that the cancellation was a bit of a shock to the producers too who had to scramble together an ending.
