Person of Interest: The Complete First Season (DVD)

Amazon.ca

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

Person of interest grabbed me with it's basic concept, a super computer analyses communications data and predicts future events/crimes. But all it offers is a social security number nothing else.

The show follows the machines inventor and the former CIA agent he employs. Together they attempt to find the person the computer spit out and prevent the events before they happen. Both lead characters are a bit of a mystery and each episode reveals a small piece of their past. By the end of the first season they have built themselves a small band of rebels. None of whom knows about the other.

It's a great mix of intelligent mystery, action adventure and a subtle hint of Sci-fi. Like any good television show Person on Interest is filled with subplots that carry through the whole season and intermingle with the main story of each episode. I strongly recommend getting the full season DVD's because at the end of each episode you will be compelled to see what happens next.

This is good TV and when you finish you'll be dying for the next season to start.

I am delighted to say that for the first time (maybe 2nd...I enjoy Blue Bloods also), I can actually enjoy a crime series without shutting it off because of the blasphemy, vulgarity, and unchecked violence. I love the fact that "Reeves" always tries to disarm or shoot someone without killing them, if possible. Within one week, my husband and I had watched the first and second seasons. (A first for both of us.) I am already looking forward to buying the 3rd season when it comes out. Keep them coming.

This one just grabs you. Lot of back story to be revealed. Jumping back and forth on the timeline could get confusing, but the bottom screen date line gives a good anchor to know when you are. Some nice twists and turns in the episodes. Surprising who some of the good guys turn out to be and by the same token the bad ones. Pure escapism. So don't over analyze.

We hadn't watched the first season of this series, which my husband was seriously disappointed about. When I discovered it was available on disc I snapped it up, for him. And, immediately after it arrived, he stopped everything in order to indulge in a marathon of Person of Interest. He loved it, and, was very happy he'd finally been able to see the beginning of this series, as he'd only discovered it part way through the second season and became of a fan of the series.

Now that I've had a chance to watch this series, I've become a fan, too. I really enjoy all the intrigue. The storylines have a wonderful variety of serious drama, lots of action, with an occasional touch of corniness, a good dose of intelligence and wit ... there is a little bit of romance, too. The characters are well developed and the writers keep their interactions are quite interesting. We bought the second season and have been thoroughly enjoying watching it, too.

I know some people are interested in further detail, so will mention these bits of information. These discs are sturdy, correctly labeled, seated well in their designated pages/places and contained in one good quality plastic case, with a protective cardboard sleeve. They all played without flaws in viewing or sound. There are added features on these discs, such as a gag reel, an un-aired extended pilot version and there are also commentaries.

Without a doubt this is the best show on tv. Everything you see on tv right now is usually similar to everything else on tv, but I find this show brings something totally new to the massive. While this is still a procedural show, the added aspect of a machine that has a life of its own makes this show stand out from the rest. More so due to the fact that it touches on the very real facts that the government monitors our every move. Okay, maybe that sounds a little too paranoid. I hear a lot of people say that they've watched an episode here and there and they weren't interested in it, but I implore you to watch the entire first season from beginning to end and tell me that you're not hooked. I've watched this show from the very beginning and while I love it, I probably wouldn't have added it to my collection so soon, if not for the fact that I am eager to lend this to my friends, because I know that they'll be hooked as well.

This is such a good series. It has humor. Finch and Reese are so good together. Finch's can say more with his eyes. Reese is just gorgeous. I loved every episode. It keeps you off guard, you never know if the number they get is a good guy or not. Highly recommend this series. Am watching season 2 at present.

I had resisted watching this on television. Whilst I had enjoyed both main actors some of their past work, and though the concept seemed possibly intriguing, I didn't find it intriguing enough and felt I had enough to watch already.
Last fall, I was stuck in a motel room with nothing else to do and nothing else to watch, during a Person of Interest marathon.
A few hours later, I was wanting to know the backstory. The next day, I was a fan and began watchin season 4 in progress.
At $15 each, I couldn't resiste purchasing seasons 1 and 2, hoping to satisfy my curisosity as to the back story.
Half way through season 1, I was hooked, watching the entire series in 3 or 4 days.
Really good, solid television.
