Did anyone watch "Person Of Interest" last night - VANITY POST
9/23/11

Posted on 09/23/2011 11:34:25 AM PDT by MplsSteve

I was planning on watch "Person Of Interest" last night on CBS - but was unable to do so.

The TV promo ads made it appear interesting.

Did anyone out there watch it? Did you like it? Or not? Why?

Thank you!

It’s DVR’ed so haven’t watched it yet. You have to think Jim Caviezel is probably a pretty strong draw. I know that’s the primary reason I am showing any interest in it. It’s sure not the CSI aspect because there’s probably half a dozen shows that use that as the backdrop.

It is a really good show. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but it has great twists and hopefully some great story arcs being set up.

Also, he lead character literally kicks serious butt multiple times in the first episode.

It almost has the vibe of The Fugitive based on his background. I’m sure with the tie-in to the government that is explained, there will be some of that type of action later in the season.

It is one of the few shows that left me wanting more at the end.

I Tivoed it last night and watched it @2:30 this morning. I recorded the first episode as a test to see if I liked it. I did so I added a season pass.

Is this really the proper forum for something like this? Why not posit this question on a TV site?

I watched it. It has potential but it’s too early to tell for sure.

Probably because James Caviezel is a Conservative Christian. Not too many of them in Hollywood. Besides he has made some pretty good movies.

Agree with all of the above. I had read a less-than-glowing review on-line prior to the show and I've decided the reviewer just didn't like seeing the bad guys get what was coming to them. Multiple plot twists and great action scenes kept it moving while setting up future story lines.

“Human Target” meets SkyNet from “Terminator” with a heavy paranoid influence from “The Conversation”.

They’ll add a female operative before the end of season one (mark my words), probably the black female cop who’s trying to figure him out.

Characters could become interesting and well rounded or flat and shallow. It’ll be interesting to see which.

I need a replacement for C.S.I. which was good with Petersen, not bad with Fishburn, but now has committed suicide as sure as if the producers suck-started a shotgun.

We DVR’d it but my husband saw all of it and loved it, I saw part if it and loved it as well.

However, one scene disturbed me... Jim Caviziel, a devout catholic in real life, was in a scene in bed with another woman and I didn’t see a wedding ring. Now, was he married to her in the show, I don’t know, I didn’t see it all. I hope he hasn’t compromised his values.

This forum includes also some non political topics. The longest one was the murder of Anna Nicole Smith and her son. There has also been discussion of “American Idol,” “Dancing With the Stars,” popular songs, what books we read etc. One of my favorites was a series on art history. It was excellent.

I enjoyed it because of the plot twist and Caviezel's acting.

Heard an actress made a fuss over the TV Guide cover showing two men, maybe something about her shown too small compared to the two leads. If this is the female cop, then her part was so small I barely recall her.

Go file a complaint if you don’t like it.

If you can go back and re-view, do. She is being set up for something down the line; nemesis or (more likely) partner is my guess.

I listened carefully to commentary by the writers of "Profit," a brilliant depiction of a totally amoral predator and was impressed by how far ahead they planned peripheral story lines. They were planning story lines and characters for season three when they got cancelled after nine episodes.

If the writers of this are planning like that, they have enormous potential. Let us hope they make something of it.

Found there was a thread already on this show. We have watched every week. Started out liking it, the writing and acting are good. But I'm starting to get creeped out now that all this Occipy stuff is going on. Is CBS just trying to get us to like the idea of constant surveilance and a rich guy who takes matters into his own hands. Can you say Soros?? It's them against established law (the lady detective), it's got a real anarchists flavor now that I am starting to not like. Am I too paranoid here??

"Person of Interest" is a candidate for Peoples Choice Awards. I believe the voting is still open. I do not know how many times one can vote. The following link had link to vote:

Hi! I’m reviving this old thread. Last night was the season premier of Person of Interest. I thought it was their best episode yet, it was one of the best TV episodes I’ve seen in years. I wonder if they got a new director. There is something different this season, and whatever it is, it’s is great.
