Person Of Interest
Person of Interest stars Jim Caviezel as John Reese. An ex-CIA officer and Green Beret he’s current living in a rundown apartment in NYC after an ‘incident’ left him presumed dead. Then along comes a billionaire computer genius Harold Finch (played by Lost’s Michael Emerson), explaining he’s built a computer that uses information gathered in today’s surveillance culture to create a prediction engine that will predict terrorist attacks and crimes. When the government ignores Finch, he decides to talk matters into his own hands, and hires Reese for his CIA/kicking ass skills to track down the crimes, and stop them before they happen. Think park Batman, part Minority Report.
Person of Interest is has taken a ‘mid-season break’ as Channel 5 isn’t happy with the slot it was airing in, so plan to bring it back in the new year with a new time slot. I’m guessing that means they weren’t happy with the viewing figures… I’m just hoping that doesn’t mean they’ll drop it after season 1… We’ll have to wait and see!
