Person or Interest Review

Updated on September 22, 2011

Person of Interest


Person of Interest Review

The show opens with our two main characters Mr. Finch who was a billionaire who worked to build a computer empire before 9/11 who after 9/11 used a computer to sort FISA wire taps. But the government needed a computer to sort though the data and decide if the they were relevant to national security interests and therefore forwarded to the NSA or irrelevant random Persons of Interets. Mr. Finch only has access to the irrelevant list which only provides him with a nine digit social security number. They don't know if the social security number is that is a murderer or the victim but is classified only as a person of interest.

Our other character is Mr. Reese who has quit the CIA to marry his love before 9/11 and then resigned up after the terror attacks.

Both men are suffering from grief from their former lives.

Mr. Finch finds Mr. Reese to help him determine if the Person of Interest if a murderer or a victim. The machine bases its analysis on intent which is smilar to the Minority Report.

The first number is that of Ms. Hanson. Ms. Hanson is a DA which is trying to clear the person she prosecutes. But as it turns out Hanson is working with corrupt cops in a durg ring and setting up patsys.

At the end Mr. Finch and Mr. Reese receive another number and they have to decide whether or not to pursue the computer generated social security numbers classified as irrelevant persons of interest.


There are similarities between Person of Interest and Minority Report and still yet Person of Interest held my attention. The show is quick paced and cleaver. The performances were rock solid. It seems every show this season uses flashbacks at least the ones I am covering. Person of Interest also employees this but not so much that it detracts from the plot line.

I think this show has a lot of promise. It was well acted, well written and promising as anew hit show.

      Thanks for reding, commenting and reviewing.



      I had to switch back and forth between Person of Interest and the Republican Debate mainly focusing on the Debate.

      I watched the premiere of Person of Interest last night and thought it was one of the best new series I've seen in awhile.

      Like you, I think it's very well cast, and it held me captive the entire hour.

      Hi NerdyWerds,

      You might want to catch Person of Interest when you have the time. It is worth seeing. In my reviews I make certain I don't give away the entire show but I do give enough detail if you miss the show you can pick up and watch the next one. I know if I miss my favorite TV show I appreciate being able to read a review. If you liked Lost you will love Person of Interest it is a much much better show.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Hi NedryWerds,

      His character on Person of Interest is so much better then Ben from Lost. I agree he is a good actor and has range.

      It is a great show.

      Thanks for reading, commenting and providing feedback.

      Thanks for the review. I loved Michael Emerson on "Lost" and was really looking forward to seeing him in this. I'm glad to hear he didn't disappoint.
