Person of Interest (Season 1)

CBS - Sept 22

If you miss the mysteries of “Lost,” this show could fill the hole left behind by the vanishing island. J.J. Abrams executive-produces this crime drama about billionaire software wizard Finch (played by “Lost’s” Michel Emerson) who uses a Big Brother-type program he creates to identify people who are about to become involved in violent crimes. Jim Caviezel plays ex-CIA agent Reese, who is presumed dead, and whom Finch recruits to help him exact vigilante justice. Emerson is right at home in the role, bringing twinges of “Lost’s” mysterious Ben Linus to Finch. "Person of Interest" premieres Sept. 22 at 9 p.m. on CBS.

Wow, I was completely misreading this one. With a promising opening last night, it quickly turned average. I was to believe Person Of Interest was somewhat of an X-files/Lost/Mysterious kind of show. After the quick introduction of two main characters, it quickly became a standard investigative detective show... except boring. Watching them stake out the victim/assailant was about as uninteresting as you could get. I was watching the clock within 15 minutes.

I do not like police or law shows and this just bored me to death. Won't waste time with this one.

Pilot



Jim Caviezel


Taraji P. Henson


Michael Emerson


I actually thought it was a pretty decent opening to the series. If anything, I was thinking that it was going to be a by-the-book-Cop that stays within the law to achieve his goal. Not close. I really like that John Reese (Jim Caviezel) will do anything needed to get there, and if that means going all "Rambo", then all the better. But it's a funny thing that he prefers to just cap people in the knee and move on.

As for Mr. Finch (Michael Emerson), he is a mystery, which he even says so at the beginning of the episode. There is a lot of digging forthcoming, and it's gonna be interesting to see what is uncovered. He's not what he (or we) think he is. Same goes for Reese. This is a JJ Abrams production. His middle name is Mythology. So, Mac, even though it may seem like a Detective Show, there will be much more to this series than what you think. I for one am gonna stick with this one for awhile.

Inside joke in that they had Emerson saying "Lost" a few times throughout the Pilot episode. I'm just waiting for the number 47 to start popping up.  ;D

Glad you enjoyed. Yea, I'm rough, but I have to be. I've been burned way to many times on hopes that it gets better. And let's not even talk about those shows what start off with a bang and go nowhere {cough}{cough}Lost - The Event - FlashForward{cough}

Ghost



Another solid episode where we see a little bit of the origin of the machine. And John Reese (Jim Caviezel) is turning out to be a super cool character. Reckless abandon with the Rig. BAM!! I like reunion type endings: Parents and Kid. Second one this week. First it was Hawaii Five-0, now this one.

Mission Creep



First 5 Star episode of Season 1 and rightly so. Mission Creep sets something up bigger for future episodes to come. I'm not sure I would say its a mythology episode as it has nothing to do with The Machine. But I will be keeping an eye out for Elias, whoever that might be. We also learn a little bit more about Reese's past and the girl he left behind. The ending was cool too as the Ex-Solider got the girl and they are off to start their lives together.

Mac, you're doing yourself a disservice by not watching this. Give it a chance. It's nothing like you think it is.

Cura Te Ipsum



That was a very unusual ending. Literally a cliffhanger that I'm sure we will never get to see it's completion of. A moral question of does Reese kill the rapist or let him go. My guess, since Reese is already a mystery, leaving this up in the air will only add to his mystique and I'm kind of okay with it because now THAT confrontation will be in the back of my mind whenever he is on screen. Then again, they may address this situation first thing next week.

As for the rest of Cura, it was pretty damn good with Linda Cardellini (Freaks And Geeeks) guest-staring as a Doctor out to avenge her sister, who took her own life after the aforementioned rapist attacked her. The entire episode was tense and the diner scene with Reese and Megan (Linda Cardellini) was an acting class. Both were so good here. Don't be surprised that Jim Caviezel gets an Emmy nomination for his role in Person Of Interest this season. He has been so good already in this early into the series.
