Something like this comment was originally a reply to @Pedro, but I thought I'd put it here. This show starts a little slow. It does that thing where the first few episodes are your typical boring cop procedural to show the network they know how to paint by numbers. Then it picks up. It starts actually exploring the morals of mass surveillance, and (minor spoilers) it turns out the Machine is an AI, and they deal with all the interesting ramifications of living in a world secretly run by a benevolent(?) AI. One of the nice aspects of this show is the only fictional element of the Machine is software. Makes for a very grounded science fiction. The characters start to deal with total corruption of the police system and attempt to take it down, meanwhile learning and redeeming themselves from their dubious past. They also deal with taking down organised crime, and what to do when someone tries to consolidate power within the families, even though the new boss is less violent. They get caught up in vast government conspiracies waging massive secret intelligence wars, and must stop innocent people from getting killed while remaining hidden from powerful people. Heartbreak, romance, homoerotic sexual tension, SciFi, shooting people, explosions! They stop making another cop show and start making some really compelling television.

With every episode I wonder "how in the world can they top that?" And yet with each new episode, I am blown away by how amazing it is. There are no low points in this show. Each episode builds beautifully off of the previous one. Series Guide says I've watched over 50 days of TV shows and yet this is still my favorite. It's such a geniusly made show.

When I first started this show I did it just to kill time but after watching a few episodes I've got attached to it,and now as it has ended I feel a void inside me. Person of Interest is the best Sci-Fi you'll ever watch and it definitely deserves the full mark 10/10.

I tried to like this. I really wanted to like the show. Just cant

I started watching this because it was a procedural with an interesting premise, though it seems that most people dislike the whole procedural bit. However, it evolved into something so much more and I can without a doubt say that this is one of the most well crafted and well executed shows I've ever watched and I'm glad to have watched it and experienced this story.

Oh god I will miss this show.

This was an exceptional show, truly fun to watch.

How incredibly good season 3 is so far... mind-boggling. After that ending of season 2 they REALLY chugged along strong and thinking they could hardly top that, they constantly do. Can not even imagine what they will pull this season finale. Keep it coming, now that Breaking Bad is over this is the best written show on TV right now.

avatar

The main cast was phenomenal. Even most of the recurring actors were good. I really have to applaud the writers of the show, because they did a great job at keeping my attention over the course of 5 seasons and that's not easy to do. If you're looking for a good show to binge over the weekend, then I highly recommend watching Person of Interest.

Main story great, everything else boring. Main storyline quality: 10/10 Originality: 9/10 Side storylines quality: 3/10 Progression: 1/10 (Could've been cut down to half the seasons, or even one or two seasons with long episodes.) Characters: 7/10 Consistency: 9/10 Intensity (cliffhangers, edge of seat and the like): 5/10 (When they're good they're GOOD) Acting and directing: 8/10 (Please like comment if helpful, and I'll keep writing them this way)
