Person Of Interest Debuted Thursday Night
"A person of interest" debuted Thursday night and action-packed pilot, which will certainly keep your interest.

The new CBS series, created by Jonathan Nolan, who wrote "The Dark Knight" and co-produced by JJ Abrams, brings Jim Caviezel ("The Passion of the Christ") and Emmy winner Michael Emerson ("Lost") together solving crimes before they occur.

Caviezel stars as John Reese, a former CIA agent, which is off the grid after losing the woman he loves. And 'ruffled, depressed, and sleeping on the subway, when he found the mysterious Mr. Finch (Emerson), who gives him a new purpose in life.

In post-Sept. 11 New York, Finch has developed as a Big Brother system of security cameras and other technology that monitors everything and everyone. It can detect crimes that will occur, but the computer does a "person of interest" and does not specify whether he is the victim of crime or the perpetrator. That's why he needs Reese and expertise of the CIA.

The episode moves at a steady pace and there is a spirit in the midst of stealth and separators. Emerson proves once again, is ideal for playing enigmatic characters (remember, the man who made Benjamin Linus on "Lost") and Jim Caviezel plays Reese as a man who has nothing to lose. Taraji P. Henson is seen briefly in the pilot as a police detective from New York who is skeptical of Reese, and hope to get more screen time as the show goes on.

It will be interesting to see where the "person of interest" goes here. Will anticipate and prevent crime (and should) still a big part of the fabric of the show, but also have a broader, comprehensive stories can still be character development, and to continue the series. Maybe Reese will dive into the love interest, and how he died, Finch light background, or history of the technology that fuels today's moral vigilantism of the duo.
