Person of Interest – S01E05 – Judgment Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

This week, Finch's (Michael Emerson) secret machine spat out the social security number of a judge. It was pretty clear that this was going to be a fairly straightforward kidnap and ransom case, but there were still a few mysteries to solve along the way to keep things interesting. There was nothing particularly remarkable about the first half of the episode. Everything went along pretty much how you expected. The big mystery came when Finch and Reese (Jim Caviezel) had ...

Person of Interest – S01E04 – Cura Te Ipsum Review

Just when you get worried about Person of Interest becoming too much like the typical “case of the week” police drama, the show comes up with a creative twist to keep things interesting.

Early on in the episode, we got to learn a little bit about Finch ... Read More

Person of Interest – S01E03 – Mission Creep Review

Showing ... Read More

After catching up on my Person of Interest, I can definitely say the show has convinced me to stay for the full season. I had a lot of doubts after watching the pilot. "Ghosts" not only served as a good episode to stand on its own, but it furthered the larger story. In "Ghosts," the next social security number kicked out by Mr. Finch's (Michael Emerson) machine belonged to a teenage girl who was supposedly killed a few years ago. ... Read More

Person of Interest – S01E01 – Pilot Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Following Michael Emerson's fantastic performance in Bad Robot's Lost series, I was determined to follow him into whatever his next project was. I suspected it would be another series, but I didn't expect it would be anything quite like Person of Interest. In Person of Interest, Michael Emerson plays Mr. Finch, a wealthy man with a connection to the government. After the Twin Towers went down, he helped the US government with a machine that deciphered and sifted through all of ... Read More
