Storyline

After a scrape with a few hot-heads on the subway, homeless man and former government agent John Reese is offered a job by the somewhat secretive Mr. Finch. After 9/11, Finch developed a computer program that would sift enormous amounts of information, looking for patterns of behavior or activity that would predict another attack. It also provided information about individuals who could be in danger. Finch wants to do something about those people. The first on his list is Diane Hanson, an Assistant District Attorney currently working on a major prosecution. Reese agrees to help out and begins by watching her. It all leads to an unexpected conclusion. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

John Reese: I'm considering sticking around New York for a while. If I do, I'm gonna need someone on the inside, and you might come in handy.
Detective Lionel Fusco: Ah, so I'm working for you now, huh?
[laughs]
John Reese: That's right. But I've got two rules. One, you so much as hurt anybody, and I'll kill you. I don't particularly like killing people, but I'm very good at it. And two... You have to be more careful. For instance, if you're gonna put someone in the backseat of your car, you have to search them properly...

22 September 2011 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

Is it me, or does it seem like there are more new shows this season than ever before? When I heard the premise for the show, I was a little concerned that it was a variation of something we've seen before. After watching the pilot episode, I felt a refreshed. This show seems like something new, or at least, something different. It has certainly exceeded my expectations and I am rooting for it to succeed. The main characters are interesting and mysterious. The storyline was not the usual predictable stuff. Do yourself a favor and watch this episode. I'm quite excited to see more episodes and have already programmed my digital video recorder so I won't miss a minute. One of the best premiers I've seen in a while.
