Person Of Interest (POI) is created by Jonathan Nolan best known for the co-screenplay writing of The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, both movies were directed by his brother, Christopher Nolan. Most recently the brothers worked together in Interstellar. The show stars Jim Caviezel (Jesus in The Passion of the Christ and Michael in The Prisoner miniseries), Michael Emerson (best previously known for his role as Ben on LOST), and also Taraji P. Henson, Kevin Chapman, Amy Acker, and my eye-candy of choice, Sarah Shahi. J.J. Abrams is among other executive producers. He is best known for being the co-creator of outstanding TV series like LOST and Fringe, and has directed, produced and written several movies. Abrams is currently directing Star Wars: Episode VII. POI is based on New York City, season 3 just ended and season 4 has already been confirmed.
Season 1 “Person Of Interest” Opening Intro
Main plot: Finch (M. Emerson) built a surveillance supercomputer system for the government after September 11, 2001. It hears and watches everything to predict future terrorist attacks. After seeing how the machine also predicted cases of “irrelevant” (non-terrorist) crimes (mostly murder) by ordinary people and that these were discarded, he decided to take matters by his own account against the government’s authorization and started to save people just by getting their social security number through a backdoor he built on the system. Though he is never sure if they are the victim or the perpetrator, he assigns ex-CIA Mr. Reese (J. Caviezel) to prevent these predicted crimes.
Person Of Interest is a fantastic TV series that everyone should give a chance to. It truly is a masterpiece of modern action TV that is smart and flows at a satisfying pace that will keep you on the edge of your seat for most episodes. If you haven’t watched this TV show, please do yourself a favor and do it; not just once any random episode you pick up or maybe a half-episode here and there, really watch it, beginning from season 1 episode 1. The modern thematics presented in the show, like voyeurism, spionage and privacy conspiracies, are current and very appealing and, with basic knowledge of technology now being mainstream, the show cleverly and lightly explains, for example, basic concepts of hacking within it’s fast-paced, enjoyable and action-filled narrative.
The show picks up tremendous pace on each passing season and (without giving any spoilers away… yet) season 3 flies like a sweet bullet of clever and fantastically written action that is the pinacle for the entire show up to now. And season 2 was the highlight before season 3 and so, season 1 was great by its own means with nothing like it before to compare it to. First-time watchers should watch the show from the beginning. Even when half of the first season are separate scattered cases, you’ll be amazed by how varied they are and how there really is no boring episode ever. After that you’ll feel an emotional connection to the characters and their purpose: to safe ‘irrelevant’ lives.
I will make it my personal mission to get this show to be more noticed. Maybe I’ll even start writing episode-by-episode reviews here on The Young Folks for the next season. All we hear about is Game of Thrones, House of Cards or The Walking Dead and some other TV program here and there but there should definitely be more fuzz about somewhat-underrated Person Of Interest. The show easily picked up, on its debut on September 2011, the legacy action TV series 24 (which ended in 2010) had left for TV for the genre. The return of 24: Live Another Day overlapped two of the final episodes of the season of Person Of Interest. I can undoubtedly say that POI is extremely better than 24 in just about every single aspect. Even with it’s current return 24 feels so dated in contrast to the now far superior and more current, Person Of Interest.
The stakes were higher than ever for the POI team on season 3.
