Re: Person Of Interest Season 1

I think that if this show can figure out some sort of long term arc that adds some mystery it can be a very very good show

i'm just not sure how long this show can stay interesting simply having bad guys of the week

i like the direction they headed this week with finch flashbacks though

Re: Person Of Interest Season 1

Episode 2 was a very good episode, but if it is just a SSN of the week than it can become boring. Definantly will see where this show goes.

I liked how Reese shot the bad guys legs since he knew the man was wearing a vest, I liked how it wasn't told to us and left it up to the viewer to figure it out; makes the little payoff better.

Shows that come out of the JJ Abrams stable all have long term arcs built into them.

We are already in the early stages where season one's major arc is based around the two main characters and their history. Its not episodic in the same way as shows like NCIS where if ive not seen an episode in a couple years I could pick one up at random and have zero problem getting into it. While the case of the week stuff is half the show, the other half is very much serialised.

That truck scene was awesome. Ridiculous, but awesome.

Re: Person Of Interest Season 1

Is it just me or does it seem like Reese actually is a really solid actor?

And like Phil said, the arc right now is with and between Reese and Finch, probably gonna be alot of flashbacks, Reese trying to figure out Finch etc.

Some of the scenes are kind of ridiculous, but it's a fun show and the leading characters are perfectly cast.

I almost feel like Michael Emerson's talents are wasted in a weekly procedural. Still wanna know why the hell he limps though. The other guy doesn't even seem to be curious why he's walking around like he has a stick up his ass all the time.
