Just My 2 Cents: PERSON OF INTEREST—Review  

I watched Person of Interest and was disappointed. I was not very impressed with the show. I really miss Michael Emerson as Ben.

Ben Linus was a tragic character who managed to be funny, intriguing, mysterious, scary, and human. I find Mr. Finch a bit 2-dimentional. Frankly, I am so sick and tired of blood, gore, cops, robbers, good guys vs. bad guys types of shows. I would love to see Michael Emerson doing comedy. His comedic timing is so good.

While I was watching the show, I kept thinking about that show that Michael and Terry O'Quinn came up with when LOST was winding down. I'd love to see those two together again. I also kept visualizing that the show that was canned would probably have all the ingriedients that made the Emerson-O'Quinn duo so good.

I'm hoping that Person of Interest will get better. I hate watching The Office the next day for a mediocre show.

Since CBS has H50 online, I'd assume they'll also have POI online tomorrow. That's when I plan on trying to watch, if I have time before work.

I wasn't desperately in love with the first episode, but i think the show has potential. Pilots are often a bit...weird. CBS wants to hook as many viewers as they can, so they're trying to pull in the action-adventure crowd just as much as the cerebral, character-development folks. I think Mr. Finch has some interesting things stirring below the surface we'll have to wait to see.
