From Amazon.co.uk

A high-concept show that isn't afraid to get down and dirty, this latest exercise in paranoid worldbuilding from producer J.J. Abrams provides an addictive combination of action and future tech. Series creator Jonathan Nolan (brother of Christopher) lays out the premise at a furious clip: an eccentric tech genius (Lost's Michael Emerson) enlists a shadowy soldier-of-fortune (Jim Caviezel) to help with his pet project--a machine with seemingly endless surveillance capabilities. Utilizing the device's ability to identify threats before they happen, they set out to right future wrongs, attracting the attention of a dogged New York cop (Taraji P. Henson) in the process. Were Person of Interest content to remain at the level of weekly procedural, it would be a very good one, with every installment boasting well-choreographed fight scenes, Emerson's impeccably weird comedy timing, and a thorny morality that keeps the methods of the protagonists edging into the black. (A standout early episode, featuring Linda Cardinelli as a doctor with a hidden past, boasts an open-ended resolution that would do Elmore Leonard proud.) Thankfully, however, Nolan and co. also show an ability to play the long game, cannily inserting flashbacks that hint at a bigger mystery, introducing a strangely empathetic recurring supervillain, and laying out minor plot elements that pay off big further down the line. The show's impressive planning also extends to the supporting cast, with Henson given a character arc that many leading characters would envy. (Kudos as well to Kevin Chapman, as a former dirty cop whose slowly growing conscience provides many of the best moments.) The best element of the show, however, may well be The Machine itself, an initially implausible gimmick that quickly becomes a character in its own right; an omnipresent asset that--pay close attention to the evolving graphics overlays--may not be quite as passive an observer as its creator insists. By the time the final cliffhanger episode of the season rolls around, it's apparent that the show's mythology still has plenty of unexplored depths to delve. Extras include a lengthier cut of the pilot, a fascinating/scary look at the current state of surveillance tech, and a brief gag reel showcasing Caviezel's ability to do a killer Christopher Walken. --Andrew Wright

Synopsis

Jim Caviezel (The Thin Red Line), Michael Emerson (Lost) and Taraji P. Henson (Hustle & Flow) team up in this thought-provoking crime action drama from The Dark Knight's Jonathan Nolan and J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions (Fringe, Lost, Alias). Set in New York City, this procedural centers on an ex-CIA agent, presumed dead, who partners with a mysterious billionaire to prevent violent crimes. Using data siphoned off the U.S. intelligence agencies' threat matrix -- information not related to terrorism, but rather violent crimes of a personal nature -- during each episode, the former CIA agent and his enigmatic partner identify a "person of interest" and set about solving the mystery of the impending crime. Tapping into the world's Big Brother-like surveillance network, the shadowy duo knows that something bad is going to happen; it's their mission to discover what that event will be ... and somehow prevent it.

5.0 out of 5 stars You are being watched... 9 Oct 2012
Format:DVD
A simple concept. Man (Michael Emerson) designs machine that can predict crime before it happens. He enlists the help a former CIA agent (Jim Caviezel) to intervene through whatever means necessary to prevent said crime.
Each episode revolves around a specific investigation. Caviezel is a bona fide leading man, and despite criticism as to the depth of his performances, his role in season 1 is very much physical, and he is as convincing in the role as I have seen on television. You can't teach screen presence after all!
Emrerson, once again, is a delight and commands the audience attention every frame he is on camera. Who could forget his turn on LOST?
The talented supporting cast, fast paced plot, and intriguing premise guarantee most viewers will be coming back for more.
Along with homeland, the best new drama of 2011.
Let's hope they can keep this standard up in season 2...

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy watching that has cross appeal 17 Nov 2013
By Mike R
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I originally watched this show when it was on tv and then, on impulse, bought the blu ray when it came up on my recommendations. Then having gone back to visit my family I thought I'd watch the pilot. What shocked me was that my extended family, mother, sister, brothers all loved it. So much that they bought their own copy when I took mine with me home!

To the show however, the basic concept is a feel good factor of a duo, the brains and the brawn, working together to stop various bad deeds from occurring. This is done through the transmission of a social security number (national insurance number for the USA) from a mysterious source (I won't spoil with details). They then need to figure out if the person this matches to is either the potential victim or perpetrator of a crime.

These characters are supported by a few other regulars who provide necessary roles in hindering/helping certain plot lines which keeps the story lines at a pace that may otherwise risked flagging.

The quality of the picture and sound is excellent with an extended pilot and other extras included. I wouldn't recommend this for the under 12s but for families without kids that young I think this could be shared. Violence is rarely regularly occurring and it's usually, due to the skills of the main character, over quickly!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Machine is Watching You.... 13 July 2012
Format:DVD
Person of Interest is an interesting and watchable show that only needs some more reliable writing to be a must-watch.

The premise of Person of Interest is a paranoid's worst nightmare: The government is watching you. Every CCTV camera, every phone call and text, every email, every record about you is fed into a machine that knows what you're going to do before you even do it. The machine was built by Harold Finch (Michael Emerson from Lost) to predict when terrorists would attack, and it works, brilliantly. But before he handed it over to the US government he discovered it was also predicting crimes against ordinary people before they even happened. The government didn't care, so he built a backdoor that would feed him the social security numbers of these ordinary people. He doesn't know what will happen to them, or if they will be the victim or the criminal, but when a number comes out he knows it's just a matter of time before something violent happens.

This intriguing premise turns the usual detective show on it's head: the characters are preventing crimes, not solving them, and they need to work out what people are going to do, not whodunit.
Finch therefore needs someone to be his go-to man, to do the leg work and finally to step into violent situations to save the innocent. He recruits John Reese, an ex-CIA operative who has eneded up hiding out on the street after something unspecified and bad happened to him. Charismatically played by Jim Cavaziel, he quickly tidies up and stalks the streets in a sharp suit concealing some deadly weapon. He could be considered something of a Batman figure, swooping in to save someone with sudden violence and an enigmatic one-liner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blu Ray of interest 28 Mar 2013
Format:Blu-ray
OMG.... yes I actually said OMG like a nerdy teen whose just found the first ever issue of Spiderman and is grasping it in his sweaty hands with such glee. I think I have found my new fave show, This show is reminiscent of an old show I used to watch back in the day before the Internet and Dazzling vampires, that show being Swift Justice which was about an ex cop who goes out to fight crime and is helped by a police detective, Person of Interest is Swift Justice 2.0 (obviously the two shows are not connected)
And seeing Ben from Lost back on the Tv screen, of course two characters are different that would be weird wouldn't it seeing Ben outside of the Island Manipulating an Ex Cia agent rather than manipulating Locke,
THE PLOT
John Reese (Jim Caviezel), a former Green Beret and CIA field officer, is living as a derelict in New York City after the death of the woman he loves, and is presumed dead. He is approached by Harold Finch (Michael Emerson), a reclusive billionaire computer genius who is living under an assumed identity. Finch explains that after September 11, 2001, he built a computer system for the government which uses information gleaned from omnipresent surveillance to predict future terrorist attacks. However, Finch discovered that the computer was predicting ordinary crimes as well. The government is not interested in these results, but Finch is determined to stop the predicted crimes.
Thankfully that's the plot synopses over and down with always hate that part, you should try explaining Donnie Darko how do you make someone want to watch a film about a guy who sees a 6 foot bunny rabbit and time travel (one of my fave films though) anyway's I digress.
