I have it on DVR, along with some of the other new shows. Caught the beginning and it looked quite good.

Warner Home Entertainment will bring Person of Interest: The Complete First Season to Blu-ray in the fall. Created by filmmakers J.J. Abrams (Super 8) and Jonathan Nolan (The Dark Knight), this weekly procedural stars Jim Caviezel (The Thin Red Line) and Michael Emerson (Lost) as two outcasts working on society's fringes to stop violent crimes.

From Warner's official synopsis:

"Using data siphoned off the U.S. intelligence agencies' threat matrix - information not related to terrorism, but rather violent crimes of a personal nature - during each episode, the former CIA agent (Caviezel) and his enigmatic partner (Emerson) identify a 'person of interest' and set about solving the mystery of the impending crime. Tapping into the world's Big Brother-like surveillance network, the shadowy duo knows that something bad is going to happen; it's their mission to discover what that event will be....and somehow prevent it."

The first season contains the following episodes:

Pilot
"Ghosts"
"Mission Creep"
"Cura Te Ipsum"
"Judgment"
"The Fix"
"Witness"
"Foe"
"Get Carter"
"Number Crunch"
"Super"
"Legacy"
"Root Cause"
"Little Cub"
"Blue Code"
"Risk"
"Baby Blue"
"Identity Crisis"
"Flesh and Blood"
"Matsya Nyaya"
"Many Happy Returns"
"No Good Deed"
"Fire Wall"
Warner's ten-disc Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet Digital Copy combo pack presents the program in its 1.78:1 broadcast ratio. The discs also have the following bonus supplements:

Commentary on original broadcast version of the pilot
Unaired, extended pilot episode with optional producer commentary
Living in an Age of Surveillance behind-the-scenes featurette
Gag reel
Person of Interest: The Complete First Season streets on September 4th.

Yes. One of the best new shows on TV. I don't buy many shows or movies nowadays, but I just might pick this one up.

Definitely one of the most interesting shows on tv these days. Along with Blue Bloods and NCIS, I make a point of catching this one every week.

Yeah, I caught it first time round on UK Tv and liked it.

Caviezel good.

anyone not tried it yet should give it a go.

I $shouldn`t$ have, but I did pick this up yesterday. Haven`t watched any of it. Sounds intriguing, and Caviezel (spelled that right?) should be able to carry it; looking forward to it.

I have been watching the show since the start. Always interesting, sometimes, quite exciting. The plotting is heavy at times, but rewarding. The relatively small cast is
first rate all the way.

Special mention...

The first season finale that introduced the character of Root (played to evil perfection by Amy Acker) made for a terrific cliffhanger. The story was played over the first two episodes of the second season (currently airing), and, I hope the storyline continues. Very compelling.

Tech geeks will love the high tech equipment... fine acting... cool stories... slick scoring.
A winner all around.

The main characters have lost some of the edge they had initially -- but that almost always happens in long form TV -- especially the two cops who are now sort of sweet and semi-sweet. They've really been glamming up Taraji P. Henson as Joss -- she looked stunning in the last episode. Not that that is a bad thing! They are keeping some of the bad-boy vibe to Fusco/Kevin Chapman -- and he's definitely my favorite character on the show. They do seem to be trying to create a coherent back story for the characters from week to week -- and I enjoy the glimpses we've been getting into Finch's past life. This is just about the only US Network show that I look forward to unreservedly each week. (I am getting a bit tired of the dog -- I keep expecting him to play more of a part in show -- but he seems there as another cute factor for the most part.) The other shows that I catch -- Castle, The Mentalist, Elementary -- have been spotty with some good episodes and some bad. I'm curious if the CD holds up as a separate listening experience? Anyway, I like this show very much.

I recently watched Seaon One. (I'd never seen the show before.)

Excellent show. Love the cast, as well. Can't wait to see Season Two...

I do like this tv series, but one thing bothers me.
What about the people at risk in New Orleans, Wichita Falls and Atlanta?
Does the machine ignore probables in other cities?

I see what you mean, but the characters can't really be everywhere at once. And wouldn't using air travel (which might be a necessity if they were to go from city-to-city to get there in time to save people at risk) create other problems for the main characters trying to avoid detection? Maybe not, but it's still a good and entertaining show....

No matter how hard you try, you can't save everyone. I'm sure that there are plenty of violent crimes in New York alone that Finch and Reese can't prevent. However, that's not to say that they can't start a POI franchise in multiple cities in upcoming seasons... wink
