It's a little early to remake Person of Interest but the Player is good nevertheless. And is yet another show critics were wrong about this Fall. Critics must just want people to watch Downtown Abbey and reality shows. If you like action, Person of Interest and Wesley Snipes; then the Player is for you.


I'm sad that NBC has already cancelled this series and now they'll just burn the last 4 episodes. Therefore, the plot of the missing wife, the FBI agent that tries to "uncover" the activites of The House (that just received the alterative name of "Occam"), the Pit Boss past and the rest of interesting bits that made this series so enjoyable, won't be concluded. Therefore, I'm not wasting my time with those 4 episodes anymore. Ironically, they've already sold this show to 105 countries... and most of them will premiere it next year.


Awesome pilot! will be watching this one


Good action packed TV show with a good story line. Not sure why it was canceled / not renewed. Give it a go.as this is really an entertaining TV show. 7/10


It's a shame this show got canceled, let alone didn't get a full first season. It certainly started off slow, for me, but it started getting really good towards the end. I know it's been three years since this show got canceled, but I'd like if it were to somehow get renewed.


It was a good show. Netflix should pick up for a second season.


Too bad they stopped at 1-09


It's good, but the idea is pretty much Person of Interest. But I guess it's good as itself.


Great show. Great cast. what a damn shame.


What shame no more ?????

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
