comment Is Person of Interest sci-fi?
Then to my opinion (having not seen the movie) it does sound like it could be classed as SciFi

comment Is Person of Interest sci-fi?
@NapoleonWilson - Absolutely. Inception is definitely science fiction from my perspective. Its a world impacted by a new technology ... stealing secrets has forced business leaders (and probably others like politicians, military etc), to learn new skills such as developing subconscious security. Its not as clear cut as Minority Report where the whole DC area has had its murder rate cut to zero - but for me these movies both focus on the technology - without the technology the movie wouldn't exist, which is one definition of SciFi to me (there are others I'm sure).

comment Is Person of Interest sci-fi?
I definitely agree with @NapoleonWilson on this - the boundary is soft but ScienceFiction is more than just implausible technology. A purist would say the story should be significantly impacted by some aspect of science - future/different technology, aliens etc etc. So I would say an invisible car in a James Bond movie is not SF because its kind of a throwaway gimmick in one scene, but a movie dominated by the concept of shared dreaming, or being able to see into the future to stop crime is. That said, AI is certainly in the right direction if it is significant to the 'theme'.

comment Why wasn't Arya left at the Eyrie?
Of course what Clegane planned to do next is anyone's guess. Jon Snow has no money, Bran is missing, Sansa is (to his knowledge) still in King's Landing.

@JohnSmithOptional - I definitely feel your pain. However I'm more inclined to think that the guards might not have taken The Hound's word that the scruffy girl, who laughed at the news of Lysa's death was a relative of noble blood. The Hound, knowing that Lysa's heir was very young and possibly not well disposed to someone known as a Lannister bannerman, might have just given up on the news and turned around. As for the "minutes to hours" to get to the Eyrie, the books indicate its a difficult climb.

comment Why wasn't Arya left at the Eyrie?
Yeah - I wondered this too. Of course Littlefinger's motives are somewhat hard to follow - he's not sympathetic to the Starks as a whole, he happily betrayed Ned when it suited him. He has designs on Sansa mostly because she's heir apparent to Winterfell. Its plausible that even if he'd been informed of their presence at the gate, he might have turned them away to keep Sansa isolated. Even that isn't really plausible, as I don't think he would ignore an asset like Arya - he would either "rescue her" from the Hound, kill her or something where he keeps her under his control.

comment Siblings move in with creepy uncle
Wow - I thought is it really 20 years old?!? No - it was from 2004. A surprisingly underrated movie in my opinion.

comment Why leave King's Landing now?
@AndrewMartin - don't worry - I'm not taking it as a rant, just enjoying the cut and thrust of discussion here :) For the record, I do think that its possible to attempt to answer this from the existing TV material, even if there might be more accurate answers that include source material. For what it is worth, I think Varys probably decided that with Tommen (and therefore Cersei) now essentially in charge of the throne, with (relatively) moderating characters such as Tywin now out of the picture - he wouldn't want to be around when it is suspected he helped Tyrion escape justice.

I do suggest (as people have already done) - spoilers from the books should be in spoiler markup here.

comment Why leave King's Landing now?
@AndrewMartin - very premature? If it were not for the books it would still be a perfectly good analysis question - of course with the books (as you point out), its hard to answer without reference to them and therefore making spoilers inevitable.

Josh - I converted your other answer to a comment - but some is lost as its too long. Please use comments to respond to people's comments, not another answer :)

I've given quotes from the book, but in all honesty I think this closely reflects what the TV show did here too - I just don't have access to that now.
