Person of Interest
as a thriller about hi-tech New York vigilantes who prevent crimes doesn’t quite do it justice. The series manages to dress itself in a mystique that implies it’s also a profound comment on surveillance, big business and “the decline of western civilisation”, as limping billionaire Arnold Finch (one of the vigilantes) sighed last week.
This week’s episode goes heavier on the on-screen graphics: hardly a scene goes by without a couple of grainy CCTV-style shots: we’re encouraged to see everyone as pawns of “the Machine”, the government supercomputer (designed by Finch) that tracks everyone everywhere. But underneath the sci-fi-ish air of doom, it’s rattling good fun.
Reese is perplexed when the Machine assigns him to investigate a teenage girl who was reported dead two years previously - but Finch refuses to accept his system could have made a mistake, and insists they try to find out what really happened to her. However, as the duo try to get to the bottom of the case, Detective Carter delves into their backgrounds. Action series about a former soldier who tries to stop crimes before they happen, starring Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson and Taraji P Henson.
