Person of Interest - Missing Episode

I'm currently watching 'Person of Interest - Season 3' on Channel 5 (105) and have noticed that episode 17 has not been nor appears to be scheduled for broadcast in the coming weeks?

 

I thought that maybe it was a glitch in the scheduling and sometimes an episode goes out of sync, however episode 16 was broadcast on July 30 and the next scheduled episodes on my TiVo are from August 6 onwards for episodes 18, 19, 20 and 21.

 

Can't find any information about this being a 'sensitive' episode.  Anyone have any further information?

 

Thanks all Smiley Frustrated

Re: Person of Interest - Missing Episode

No you're right ep 17 seems to be missing. Next 2 new ones scheduled for thurs are ep 18 & 19 and last new one was Ep 16

 

Ep 17 is entitled     /   [yep a forward slash] according to  episode guides. Brief synopsis doesn't seem to look like anything nefarious.

less Amy Ackerman is not a good thing, from the looks of the review at us.tv.com it might have been a decent episode.

They've been showing 2 in a row for the last few weeks so maybe they want to finish it quicker and skipped ep 17 as it wouldn't further the underlying story and ruin anything?

Thanks for both your responses Olly.

 

Yeah, I noticed that they've been doubling up episodes recently - should be a total of 23 for Season 3.  No idea on when Season 4 will be broadcast.

 

Annoying that they miss out an episode though!  I always find that there are small pieces that relate to something in the past and this can throw the storyline a bit Smiley Mad

 

I agree on the episode name for 17, although some state it as 'Root Path' and LocateTV has it down as 'Entanglement'.

 

Wonder if this episode will be on Channel 5's catch-up?  Currently they're only showing upto episode 16.

Not that I'm an expert but / stands for root path in Unix, I think.

Looks like they will skip ep 17 in order to finish off the season with 2 episodes per night.

 

I am 3 mths behind on all my recorded series so even if 17 was on catch up it would be completely out of sequence with the current episodes I am watching and probably no longer available. I will no doubt forget to go look for it elsewhere when I get around to having watched ep 16  :lol:

 

Does anyone pre 'everyone knows some coding' days recall a forward slash was actually called an oblique, or was that the backslash, I've forgotten now  Smiley Very Happy
