Ever think your being watched?
In this Crime/Thriller drama, the presumed dead billionaire Harold Finch and ex CIA Operative John Reese team up to prevent the dangerous crimes of New York City before the even occur.
The series is created by Jonathan Nolan and J.J Abrams.
After 9/11 - The billionaire, Finch created a secret system, a machine that spied on you every hour of every day (At least in New York) It ranged from just camera's watching you with ten thousand eyes, or devices listening with a million ears. This machine, predicted the crime that was going to happen, all John Reese had to do was be their before the crime occurred, simple, right?
Harold Finch is played by the magnificent Michael Emmerson. You may better know him for the role of Benjamin Linus in LOST. He's back with a new series here and proving just what a fantastic actor he is.
John Reese is played by Jim Caviezel. He played Jesus Christ himself in film The Passion Of The Christ.
Detective Joss Carter is played by Taraji P. Henson - Her character really brings something else to the show and really like her.
Lionel Fusco is played by Kevin Chapman - Who is Detective Carter's cop partner who went from bad cop to good cop.
Now on to my thoughts for the series.
Straight away, I loved it, Straight away. I do not think I have ever watched a TV Pilot and said after 1 episode of the show, It's brilliant, here I did. When I first watched it in August 2012 (UK Premierw) I was instantly content.
It just good better as the series advanced and one of the main things I loved was the chemistry between the characters and the actors, mesmerizing stuff.
To me, Person of Interest was something different, not a tired Supernatural/Vampire show nor some dying CSI rubbish, this to me was unheard of, a totally different premise with a great story and great actors.

That pretty much ends my review of the series and set. All I can say is that this is definately a show to watch if you are a fan of American Drama's/Crime/Thrillers etc - which is what drew me in to the series.
As I write this the series is almost about to get it's third season underway and remains one of the top viewed shows on TV.
