      Excellent action-mystery series

      Superb new mystery and action series. Great writing, acting, directing. Great work by producer J. J. Abrams and writer Jonathan Nolan (brother of writer/director Christopher Nolan). Easily some of the best television currently on the air anywhere. The vast majority of television is dreck. Person of Interest so far isn't. Several interesting themes: government monitoring of pretty much everyone and everything nearly everywhere. Computerized analysis of behavior, background, etc., i.e. automated profiling of people. Strong big brother theme which is perhaps within the realm of possibility. A wandering samurai in a big city in the form of a former CIA case officer / special forces solider, though it's not clear how much the CIA military types typically work on HUMINT (human intelligence) and develop spies, so that may be a little off. I would classify this as science fiction / mystery / action / thriller. It manages to cover multiple genres well which is a rare thing indeed. There's definitely a very strong action dimension since the hero finds the need to engage in armed and unarmed combat pretty frequently. It's well-presented, super-violent and at the same time not really glorified, which again is unusual. The presentation of instantaneous force is perhaps most like the samurai genre in a definite Eastern zen-like feel, but with hands and modern weapons instead of swords. The premise and plotting are unusually strong. I'll leave it to other reviews to describe those. I'm definitely interesting in buying these on DVD.

      One of the best new shows on TV

      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!

      Development of the characters done well

      I had little knowledge of the first season, because I had not started watching "Person of Interest" until the second season. Having the DVD of the first season, it was great to watch and get some questions answered as to how Finch and Reese's relationship began. The development of the plot structure where the machine senses acts of possible terror is intriguing, especially how the writers developed this early on in the series. The production does a very creditable job of developing the uneasy relationship between Fusco and Carter. Very good is Fusco returning to "good cop" status, as Carter's partner (arranged by Reese undercover), and then in another plot twist, being requested by Reese to go back to working with the "trash cops" life he thought he had left behind Reese's knowledge and use of offensive and defensive arts is instructive and entertaining. Good plot usage of times when Reese and Finch are temporarily foiled due to human error. The humor is well placed in all of the episodes, as is the buildup to suspense. Proverbs 3, vs. 5 - 6

      Drama + Action + A Little Comedy = Awesome

      So here you are at Season 1 - here's what started it all for Person of Interest. A great package overall on Bluray. Comes with a small booklet for a short description of each episode, which is nice if you forget where you were. Who does that though? Binge watch it! Great acting and an excellent start to what would go on to be a very good series mixing in many elements of sort of high-tech sci-fi, crime drama, and blended well with good comedy and chemistry between the characters. As far as realism goes? Yeah, not really - you'll need to suspend reality for much of it.

      Exciting, thoughtful & scary look at tech today

      Exciting, thoughtful & a little scary look at the weaponization of modern information technology. Definitely 'Robin Hood' theme, with the good guys working outside the law for justice. The two male leads are extremely easy on the eyes, and can act, as well! The only drawback is the use (several times each episode) of computer screen readouts, often overlapping, meant to emphasize the techy, but somewhat hard on the eyes. Still, I plan to buy the other seasons 'cause I'm caught up in the plot!

      If you enjoyed Fringe then it's legendary director J J. Abrams has something else you will enjoy. In cooperation with Jonathan Nolan the brother of critically acclaimed Christopher Nolan (director of the Dark Knight trilogy) who have created a chillingly relevant techno-thriller TV series. However don't expect the same number of special features as Fringe DVDs; there is an extended pilot, a featurette about living in the age of surveillance, a gag reel, a single director commentary for the Pilot episode and that is it.

      A Great Series

      I didn't start watching this series until about half-way through the second season. I bought this set to find out what I had missed. The premise of the series is very interesting and the actors are perfect for the roles they play. I plan to buy more seasons of this show. Each episode builds on the ones that came before. If you haven't yet seen any of the shows, you might want to buy Season 1 and watch it first. It will help you make sense of the new episodes.

      Person of Interest - VERY Interesting!

      I had almost given up on T.V. Seemed like every time I thought something wouldn't SUCK after the first few episodes, I got hosed. (Like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for instance.) Person of Interest is SO good I can't wait to actually buy the 4th season! If you haven't seen it - check it out on CBS.com. If, like me, you find it awesome - then buy the first three seasons. There isn't a bad episode yet!
