    Where did you see that, PWS? Everywhere I've looked says it was renewed a while ago and shows in on the Fall 2012 schedule, same day, same time.

    I haven't read anything about the reasoning behind Reese being so soft-spoken. I always thought it was just a very interesting character trait that either Jim Caviezel or the writers came up with to contradict the violence Reese is capable of. That, and it is just damn sexy.

    I also think the soft voice makes him appear more dangerous. In public speaking it is often said that if you want to gain someone's attention, whisper, do not shout. The listener will have to pay attention.

    Oh whew! It was while I was driving across the country, some local paper's TV column....WHEW! Thanks, all!

    Re the soft spoken thing...Marilyn Monroe and Jackie Kennedy both did it....to make people (men?) lean closer to them to hear...it was a conscious coy thing. Ugh. Personally it makes me want to ignore someone unless I think they are just very shy. Very irritating in real life, and it's gotten more so as I've aged and have enough trouble hearing people who speak normally.

    In the co-hero's case though I think they do do it to contrast with his rough physical skills, and I can see that.

    I get the comments about the whispering. Maybe it's there for the reasons you state upthread. I can hear what he's saying, I just keep thinking I want him to speak up. LOL

    I thought it was really interesting too when he looked directly at it and they were just there waiting. Who's on that phone call?!

    He's talking to the machine! It's AI. The phone call was from the machine. Just like when Finch was near his ex-fiance's house and he got a phone call. He later said it was programmed to alert him whenever she was near. So we know the machine can make calls to public phones. What it said is a whole 'nother question.

    Thanks! I don't think I understood that at the time. It makes it more believable that Reece will be able to piece things together next season.
