I will shake my tiny impotent fist at POI S3!

Feelings about POI 3x09, or, What Is This, Wait That's a Cross-Fandom Spoiler )

Speaking of Fringe, if you want a textbook example of titillation and the male gaze, contrast POI 3xo3 "Lady Killer" with Fringe's "Concentrate And Ask Again". The POI camera pans over Carter, Morgan and Shaw in ways that are very much about their sexiness in sexy cocktail dresses, in ways that undermine my competence kink and cry out for a Charlie's Angels quip, not in the good way; when Olivia dresses to kill, the camera frames her for narrative function.

I'm just saying.

There's an entire thing I'm not doing with the POI's fairly arbitrary contrast of Reese violence and Shaw violence; though Finch claims Shaw is more likely to unleash lethal force and dangerous mayhem, from where I sit, their methods don't look so very different. Still looking for that Shaw-and-Root thing I was promised by fandom.
