I watched the pilot of Person of Interest with much trepidation. I like Jim Caviezel (and wondered where he had disappeared to!), and am always interested in a good thriller show or movie, but the plot almost sounded like a bad Minority Report rip-off. Watching it, the pilot certainly had promise - Caviezel certainly proved that he can carry a series like this, with an incredible and almost effortless Clint Eastwood-type performance, and Michael Emerson again shows what a terrific actor he is, but something just wasn't clicking. However, after several episodes, the series firmly established itself as one of the best shows on television. Caviezel and Emerson have developed a wonderful chemistry, and despite the tense, thrilling, and serious tone that surrounds the show, they bring a terrific levity and humor to the show when best necessary, and they are backed by a solid supporting cast, namely the gruff but increasingly-likable Kevin Chapman and Taraji P. Henson, as well as some great recurring antagonists whose identities I don't want to spoil. The writers also do an outstanding job of keeping the premise fresh and manage to mix it up regularly, taking a premise that could become stale and tired really quickly, but really find new things to throw at our heroes. Highly recommended!
