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

Person Of Interest: Pretty Darn Good & Worthwhile
25 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

POI pilot: can't much better than justice generally triumphant. It's like the Equalizer meets Burn Notice meets Human Target meets Jack Bauer (but on a local scale) and a hero with Jack Bauer capabilities. Reese, a tortured soul with no family or friends, meets out justice with most of the good people getting saved, some evil guys becoming deliciously dead, others getting non-lethally shot in the leg, and living evils going to jail. Reese does as penance for all of the rough things that he did in his prior CIA/spy employment. The plot twists were involved and unexpected. POI is entertaining and cool. If you enjoy justice/good prevailing, bad guys getting their comeuppance, & the indigent/helpless saved (I do), POI is worth watching.
