First, a summary of my individual episode ratings:
Of the 22 episodes, 13 of them I would give top marks, 8 I would assign a 4.5, and 1 I would assign a 4.0. I average this out to a full score of 5.0 for the whole season.
'Person of Interest's second season starts off in a big way, with a two episode conclusion to the last episode, series highlight 'Firewall.' This season really shows off the series' potential as so much more than another network procedural. Unfortunately, three episodes aside, we don't get to see that potential pay off until almost halfway thru the season. Fortunately, however, even those episodes that don't play into the larger plot in any major way are very to extremely entertaining on their own. In addition to the sheer enjoyment factor, each of these episodes do add bits and pieces to the overarching plot.
But when the show really gets going (pretty much every episode from 'Shadow Box' on is excellent), you can see just how big of a deal this is for network television. The first season, to my mind, pretty much conquered everything else on network television rather handily. This season puts it on par with the best of cable and pay television. If you've been keeping up with the third season, you know that statement isn't even a stretch anymore.
As for the picture and audio quality, this release is tops, no question about it. Like 'Lost' and 'Game of Thrones' before it, this series represents the best of television in high-definition. It's practically a whole new experience, the aired versions looking gimped in comparison.
The one shortcoming of this release is the special features. For whatever reason, there just aren't many of them. Any fan should love what's offered, but we really deserve more of what's here. Quantity not quality is the only problem here.
If you've heard of this show, but have yet to invest in it, I strongly suggest picking up the seasons on Blu-ray. One of the best things on television, and currently only getting better as it progresses (hopefully it can keep this up). This high-definition representation is as good as it gets, and while the special features are undoubtedly light, it certainly shouldn't deter any potential fan from getting these.
