It is the best sci-fi set on a sentient prison transport!
Moya is amazing and great. And, I love that Moya was nurturing, but still badass, and also look at her fly!

This a really interesting question!
And I swear I had an answer for this... a few months ago but now I can’t remember! I do know that I would love a story about all my favorites in one story!
Like a a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen except the team is composed of Buffy Summers, Aeryn Sun, Dani Reese, Sameen Shaw (yes they look alike, it freaks Dani out), etc., and all the other favorites banding together to save the world/fight crime.
I would like it to be a series of fun adventures, with an epic arc, excellent character development, and team bonding!
How did Belle put it? "Far off places, daring sword fights, magic spells, a prince/princesses in disguise!”

My headcanon for Harold at the end of season 5, is actually, Harold died and what Grace saw was Harold's ghost saying his final goodbye to Grace.

This took me a lot longer to answer because it really forced me to think what I'd want in a sixth season of Person of Interest, like if I had the energy to write a virtual season or even a wish list for what a sixth season would look like:
- Exploring the world Harold Finch left behind, a little like what happened in Mr. Robot season 2 but this time from a point of view of the hackers who are waking up to the prospect that something really weird happened. Conspiracy theories abound: About the missile that hit downtown New York, about the mysterious billboard messages in Time's Square.
- Weird things keep popping up, whispers about a prison in Johannesburg that was discovered to run illegal tests on people, and a possible emergent AI. One group, in particular, is running around proclaiming the Robot Overlords have arrived, they hack people and play Robin Hood.
- Exploration of Sameen Shaw as both Primary Asset and Primary Analog Interface, and the mysterious leader of Team Machine, International (ala Leverage Inc, International) but Shaw doesn't interfere unless she needs to. She only steps in when it's needed, mostly she's okay running her own missions, primarily making sure Samaritan hold outs are taken out.

Person of Interest is in my top Forever Shows, fun fact Sarah Shahi is in two shows I consider my Forever Shows!
I love the show, the show gave me a host of compelling characters both good and bad, and all shades of gray. They have a lot of women who are varied and awesome, and not everyone needed to know how to use a gun to be awesome.
I think as a whole though it told a really amazing story about people who are introverts, loners, damaged people who needed a second chance. They formed into an odd family/team but they worked and often under the guidance of an AI that was also coming to its own.
And, I love that when the show did focus on the romance, it didn’t focus on it to the exclusion of everything else. Characters are allowed to have plot and history beyond their romance (well, not everyone Grace, unfortunately, is there for Harold but it’s Carrie Preston’s acting the elevated Grace. Iris’s character doesn’t have that).
But I would be lying if I say Person of Interest was perfect there. There are no perfect shows, and POI stumbled a lot, and sometimes they got too enamored with their ideas. Particularly in season 5 with all the constraints of the network and possibly (after watching Westworld) influenced by Westworld’s storylines a wee too much.
(It’s a revelation watching Westworld with Person of Interest in the forefront of my mind because there were moments when I went-- oh, that’s why they did that in POI.)

But in the end, this is the show that gave me Shaw, Root, Harold, Carter, John, Fusco, Zoe Morgan, and Bear, and their occasionally quirky, mysterious AI guardian. I will always be thankful for the show because of that.

This is a holdover from pre-tumblr fandom when (at least for me) there was a degree to shipping.
A couple I ship together doesn’t automatically get the One True Pairing title for me because they have to be a One True Pair-- the ship I ship above all else. Two characters, no matter the circumstance I see will always be right for each other.
Sometimes a ship never rises to OTP levels, but that’s okay, epic love is not the end all and be all. I also love the concept of the love after true love pairings, a concept I owe to The OC.
Then, there’s the golden OTP to end All OTPs, the few OTPairings that rise above all else, in any universe, multiverse they will always be together and mostly these pairings were formed during my formative years: Lois and Clark, Elizabeth and Darcy.
(I still can’t forgive that one show where a Superfan entered the book and ends up with Darcy, also she had more chemistry with Wickham.)

I love Fullmetal Alchemist, both versions! Although not the movie versions of the first FMA.
Hiromu Arakawa wrote FMA so well and with so many amazing characters! She wrote so many awesome women in the story. And I love how the worldbuilding made so much sense the world's system of magic was really inventive!
I love the concept of Equivalent Exchange and the consequences that comes with it, Equivalent Exchange embodied the phrase: 'all magic comes with a price'.
I also love all the relationships in the show and how, at the end of the day Roy and Riza know they can't really atone for the atrocities they commited against the Ishvalan people, all they can do to move forward is to take steps that it won't happen again.
I love the relationship between Ed and Alphonse. I love how they're all badass in their own way, and I love that this story isn't your average shounen story where the protagonist only cared about the next fight to prove they were strong and skilled.
Ed and Al worked toward a goal that made sense to who they were.
Arakawa deserves all the awards!
