    Person of Interest, anyone watching this new show?

    I am really digging this new show from Jonathan Nolan and J.J. Abrahms.

    Emmerson and Caviezel work really well together.

    I really like how it appears that they have chosen to give us so much information in the first episode. it is like the antI LOST.

    The pilot is available on the CBS website. http://www.cbs.com/shows/fall_premie...ub/2140013058/

    It's also re-airing on Saturday.

    I watched it tonight.
    Good premise.

    A little over written. Do they have to spell out everything that we already see on screen?
    Hopefully it gets better after the pilot.

    Person of Interest was wildly ok.

    Pros:

    Good concept
    Possibility for larger stories to be told
    Technically, artistically and aesthetically pleasing
    Mysterious former CIA agent (Jesus)
    Mysterious billionaire character (Ben)
    Great pacing
    Abrams
    Nolan
    Sharp dialogue

    Cons:

    CBS
    CBS' tendency to stick with one-n-done episodes so that it's ok to miss one and old people can follow
    The story's forced "twists"
    The resolution to this week's "case" (hokey courtroom nonsense)
    Too much shitty licensed music
    Lack of strong female character (looks like the one chick will be recurring....I have a feeling she wasn't in the original pilot)
    Used 9/11 as a plot point (UGH)

    I give the pilot a B-, but there's definitely enough there to go back. Again, my biggest concern is that it's on CBS, so I'm holding my breath that they'll do longer stories, which could really be great. Check it out, though. It definitely takes the idea of "cinematic television" (for the major networks anyway, seeing as HBO's been there for over a decade) to the next level and is easily the best looking show on CBS.

    I really wanted to dig it considering all the people involved but it felt like it hit the ground running so fast. Wasn't really into anything that was happening.

    I haven't watched this pilot yet, but on the subject of CBS: they've been letting Hawaii Five-0 run an overarching plot and devote a large amount of screen time to it. It's possible their success with that will encourage them to try it again with this new show.
