I just learned that Caviezel donated money to the 2006 campaign to re-elect U.S. Senator Rick Santorum. As much as I like Person of Interest I will never be able to see this show again knowing that the main actor is such a stupid and insane person.
Whoever agrees with me spread the word and, please, stop watching this maniac!
Yeah, I would just like to offer my observations with regard to Caviezel's character: he has absolutely NO PERSONALITY. This guy makes Dirty Harry look animated by comparison. I can hardly understand what the guy says half of the time. The software designer is a dweeb of the worst kind. Can't stand this show. If you guys like it, that's your damn business. At least Law and Order: SVU has some humor to balance out the more serious stuff.
What's this supposed to be - a procedural, or a superhero thing? A single super-trained action hero is always at the right place, has infallible phone-snooping tech at hand, manipulates court evidence just like that, fights a roomful of people and wins (shoots some six people in the leg without one of them getting a shot off? Seriously??
Another thing - he lets off a grenade in a car (flash-bang? Smoke?) and that makes the car jump up under the right rear axle and turn over?? Come on, guys, that's just sooo lame.
Plus, it takes itself far too seriously. No humor whatsoever.
The film 'Minority Report' gave me the willies, and quite frankly so does 'Person of Interest'. Sometimes I swear I can hear George Orwell crying out from the grave, or perhaps laughing his ass off and saying "I told you so!". The thought of some super geek using a super computer to figure out who's about to do something nasty and then siccing a governmenttrained bully boy on him just creeps me out. The thing is, if you use a computer, a cell phone, a credit card or any one of a number of the high tech gadgets that none of us can seem to live without now that we've gotten so used to them, goverment alphabet agencies without number are already doing this to everybody to a certain extent, and the faceless people involved aren't alwaysas altruistic as the protagonists of 'Person of Interest'.Brrr....
... who is bothered by the fact that whenever the guy talks to his earpiece, not a single person arround him seems to notice? i mean, seriously, that is a major buzzkill for me. do the producers really think we are all stupid and blind? for example, in s2e3 he is standing in a kitchen, a woman eats 2 meters away from him at a table, and she cant freakin hear him?
apart from idea for a show. but they should concentrate more on the 'machine'. like they did in the ending of season 1.
Wow... what potential... but what is is the machine thing? Good God, give us a little more, bit by bit each episode...tell us what the machine is! I need more, instead, you ignore the elephant in the room, the machine... Do we care what it is... you fricking bet... You have a lot going for you, the relationships are strong, our confidence in Jim Caviezel is great, his relationship with Taraji is cool... you got the characters, don't blow it by trying to make it so cool, you can't bring us along with you... good luck... I'll keep tracking...
so this is written after seeing the pilot, and yes i have an issue with those SS#s not that i wanna steal and identity but im sure they could do better than the repetitive or filled with zeros numbers on the "list"
SO far the show its giving me what i wanted.. something different .. as always fox brings those type of shows that arent ur classic cop shows...
this actually reminds me of human target, but of course that show was way better than this one like 4times.. and we only got to see 2 seasons... so i wouldnt doubt only seeing 1 off this.
anyways ill stick around this for being different.
Awesome episode, this show has been great fun to watch from the very start. The last episode was a little weak in places, i would have liked a lot more history on Finch seeing as how it was orientated around him. Anyways this episode brought back the flashbacks and it worked well however sort of gave the game away about the ending. Also it was very obvious as soon as Carter & Reese got nabbed by FBI guy that he was going to have to die. It was the only way out for the two of them. All the flash backs to the woman & the missions were trying to tie in with his interrogation stories but in fact they were only setting up her return. SO although they were great to watch they sort of ruined the suprise a little. Saying all that though that side of the show was still superb I enjoyed it immensely. Now this show dabbles with the lighter side of things which are a welcome break usually however I felt this time it went over board and actually detracted from the episode. What the hell was Fusco stuff all about? Was it purely there to give that model her big acting break? Personally I could have done without any of that... or more depth & explanation. The way it was portrayed just felt cheesey not funny. Anyway I've focused on the negatives so apologies for that, the too & fro in the interegation scenes was great, tense, heart felt at times & kept you guessing what was going to happen next. I'm very interested to see whether Elias will be trying to turn Reese into an asset on the sly lol. Bring on the rest of the series, could do without the wait though :P
well at first i thought this show is not gonna make it, but suprisingly it proved me wrong.....seriousy going through the finale i must say this show does have a lot of potential inside....................well the way this show ends, I must say that audience must be having a lot of expectation from next season...........so I'm hoping, they better take care of that.......................
I was somewhat doubtful when I read the premise (which I still find kind of silly), but the first season was a pleasant surprise. While nothing is especially original, the slight dark taint of the characters, primarily Reese and Fusco, but also Finch, gives it an interesting little twist to storylines we have seen many times before.
I find Taraji Henson miscasted as Detective Carter though. A tough soldier (apparently stationed in both Afghanistan and Iraq) turned cop... does anyone actually buy her as that? I donno, I don't dislike the character per se, she just feels miscast and I find it a shame that the only major female character feels so... bland and uninteresting.
I think the hardest part for the series will be to keep the balance of Reese's character so he doesn't become too light. But if they manage to do that and if Taraji Henson manages to tap into some inner strength in her character I think it will be a good series.
There's just one problem with this show, it fantastic! So anyone who knows about CBS, knows it's just a matter of time till they move it and or cancel it. Anybody remember "THE UNIT" those idiots moved it to Sunday and let the NFL's overtime games screw with the timing of when it showed just like what going on with the "Good wife".
I think it has potential. I see that this has been compared to Human Target but I was thinking more in the line of 24. James Caviezel reminded me so much of Jack Bauer who could be tortured, shot or poisoned & then be chasing the terrorists in the next hour, literally! Superman to say the least. And in Person of Interest this ex-CIA operative can take on a train or roomful of people & take them all down. Superman II!!
I'm not really sure how a computer spitting out a list of SS #'s can predict who is going to be involved in a crime. I'm not really buying that concept. But I'm intrigued by it & will see if it really is credible.
The premiere introduced us to Mr. Finch, the inventor & financier of the system & to Mr. Reese ex-CIA with issues. Mr. Finch tells him he can give Reese a purpose. Saving lives. So they team up to help a woman DA who turns out to be the real criminal.
I think they made a good foundation for this show which now they need to build on to keep us tuning in.
I really like this show, however I have to say while they go around stoping killings every single time I watch the show I think to myself "This sophisticated surveillance system that predicts people from their would be murderer it seems like New York is the only place in the . that has killers in it and every where else in the country killers continue . I don't get it there are 49 other states yet as I said earlier New York seems to be their crime mecca..
This Show Started Out Like John Borne Series at 6.8 and Right Now It's At 8.5 Because Harold Finch Is Helping Out John Reese More and By Adding The Dog It Makes More Believable The Formal Relationship Between The Two. Detective Carter Is Fenomenal And Fusco Is Doing Good By Getting Out of Police Mob. It Gets Better By The Episode!
I like the premise of the show...Get Carter was one episode that brought some new life back into it. I don't know how long the writers were planning this episode but it helped bring what i was hoping wouldnt happen...that they would run out of new and different ideas. Well done and i will keep watching.
To be honest, I had to watch the pilot a couple of times to get my head around everything that was taking place, but that isn't unusual because it's often the same way with a lot of new shows when we are bombarded with a whole slew of new characters and situations. Upon viewing the pilot for the second time, it was all much clearer and I really enjoyed it, just as I have enjoyed the episodes since then.
The casting and writing are both excellent and I like the constant element of suspense. The more I watch, the more I enjoy it and I think if you like a good suspense/thriller/sci-fi combination and you haven't seen this one then you should certainly give it a chance.
While I prefer a tv series with a more intense serial arc, this show, while heavily episodic, is solidly entertaining. Sure it gets somewhat silly in spots (ala Ateam) but all the characters are likeable and the 'stories of the week' are decent enough. Its one of my favorite current tv shows.
