This is a review of the standard version of series 2 of Person Of Interest, rather than the Blu-ray one. So far, I have only watched 8 of the 22 episodes as I find I have to ration myself otherwise I would just watch it all at once! I have been on the edge of my seat since the end of series 1, which seems like a lifetime ago. I just wanted to know what happened to Harold. Thankfully, he is safe and sound, for now.

I cannot comment on the rest of the series, but I was much moved by the end of the episode 'Til Death'. One thing I love about this programme is the way you find out about the characters through flash backs. Suffice to say the conversation between Harold and Grace at the end of this episode, with their blossoming, but ultimately doomed romance and Moby's 'One of these mornings' playing in the background, had me welling up. I think Michael Emerson is brilliant in this. Harold is by far the most interesting character.

From the episodes so far, I would make the observation that perhaps the character development is stronger than some of the 'number' story lines. I can't make a complete judgement until I have seen all the episodes. I understand the 3rd series is playing in the USA right now. The hard thing is to avoid plot spoilers. Enjoy!

I don't know many people who have seen or are aware of this programme, and that is a real shame as
Person of Interest is really rather good.
It concerns a former C.I.A. agent who is recruited by an elusive multi-billionaire for a covert operation.
The billionaire (Harold) developed a computer program that can predict when someone is in mortal danger.
Harold and rogue C.I.A man Reece then set about helping the individual concerned with the aid of a couple of Police Officers who also work for Harold on the side.
The stories are very good indeed, this show has some great writers, and there is also an ongoing plot as well.
You need to watch the first 3 or 4 episodes (Series 1) to get into the meat of the show but stick with it, Person of Interest is worth it.
In short this is a hidden gem of a show, enjoy.

Format: DVD
A strong second season for the addictive hi-tec series. Its star is the awesome machine able to identify and track potential terrorists. Inventor Harold Finch knows it is capable of far more than that, he with ex-CIA John Reese secretly using it to thwart criminals and save innocent lives.

Much is very enjoyable, especially when concentrating on these aspects. Unfortunately sinister people in high places realize the machine can give them unrivalled power, their attempts to gain control leading to some very complicated storylines. (Well done, all who understood the twists and turns in the final episode - these perhaps even perplexing when viewed a second time complete with commentary.)

Michael Emerson and Jim Caviezel are a major reason to watch, they (arguably owners of two of the screen's least expressive faces) with fine chemistry. Finch is the Brains, Reese the brawn (he all husky voice and quick reflexes). Flashbacks reveal intriguing aspects of their past, including how Finch sustained injuries that left him with a limp and scarcely able to move his neck.

Also starring are Kevin Chapman as bent cop Fusco (trying hard to reform) and Taraji P. Henson as honest cop Joss Carter (whom certain colleages are determined to corrupt). In fact corruption generally seems to abound - in the police force, politics, finance and big business. How much of it will the machine be able to exocet?

Adding to complications is suspicion the machine may be developing a mind of its own. Will Finch prove a Frankenstein with a monster out of control?

22 episodes. An interesting bonus feature on how episodes are compiled - it a major surprise so little time elapsed between scripting the final episode and the actual filming.

The third season is eagerly awaited.

This brilliant programme continues into its second season. The relationships between the main characters are developed and the ubiquitous wry humour provides necessary relief as the plotting becomes even more convoluted and complex. New characters are introduced and the back stories are expanded giving us a more rounded appreciation of Finch and Reece. Intriguingly, the machine itself is one of these characters as the spectre of artificial intelligence begins to permeate the overall story arc as the narrative increasingly involves international espionage and cyber terrorism. Police corruption and organised crime continue to be an element of many of the episodes with the relationship between incarcerated mob boss Elias and Finch and Reese being particularly fascinating. This is an outstanding piece of entertainment and I am looking forward to watching Season 3.

Having watched season one of Person of Interest, I couldn't wait to see season 2.

Spoiler for Season 1
It follows on straight after Harold gets kidnapped. The series just gets better and better. I am completely hooked and can't wait for season 3.

Not to give anything away, season 2 gives more, not just about the machine but also about Harold and John. There are a few more interesting story lines involving characters we have seen before. keep watching it just gets better and better.

Spoiler
On a more comedy front, just watch for the re-occurring character who's number keeps coming up, I hope that they keep him on, he is very entertaining.
