Person of Interest is a show about, uh, how do I put this into a sentence or two? One man, Ben, no Finch, has access to information that would lead to either a victim or perpetrator. In order to do something with this information he employs a gifted ex-CIA hitman, John Finch, to do his bidding. That sounds nefarious. It wasn't, really. Not after Ben, who I could refer to as his character's name but will always be Ben to me (at least I won't refer to Jim Caviezel as Jesus), explained how he came upon this information and his desire to do something with it and about it. Taraji P. Henson is also a series regular and I really like her so I'm glad she'll be on this show.
I don't have a whole lot to say besides the fact that I enjoyed Person of Interest. I like the idea and there are lots of places to go with it. Both literally and figuratively. I hope that Jonathan Nolan sticks around and writes a few more episodes. Last night's was tight, quick paced but not too fast, and even had a tiny twist. I wasn't wowed but so little does that to me anymore. Person of Interest was a solid effort that was enjoyable to watch and I'll keep tuning in. As a fan of Lost I'm thrilled to have Ben back in my life and in a less creepy capacity than before. I like Jim Caviezel and this is a good role for him. The action was cool, a bit violent at times but still cool. Overall it was satisfying and what more do you really need?
