Outstanding series and great value DVD set
on 8 May 2014
I happened upon Person of Interest one evening whilst flicking through the Freeview channels and immediately thought it an interesting concept and I was keen to see more...
The DVD box set gave the chance to do just that; it is excellent and at 6 full discs is frankly great value. Having now watched the full series all the way through from the Pilot (both versions of which are included on discs 1 and 6) to episode 23 the series picks up quickly from the pilot, carving out strong character development through really strong writing. The overall surveillance principles are very much in line with the film Enemy of the State and none the worse for that, though it will be interesting to look back at this series in a few years to see how the technology in our daily lives has moved on.
One note on the product contents - the listing says that sets purchased after the initial release may not have a UV (digital copy) version included. At the time of purchase (April 2014) a flyer is included that lets you register a digital copy via a UV/Flixster account link and a serial number. The flyer says that the serial number will expire on 18 March 2015, so if you have not registered by then it would not work.
At the time of writing the second series is already available in the US, but will not be released in the UK until June. I will be waiting for the UK release with almost baited breath.
