Latest addiction: PERSON OF INTEREST!J
Person of Interest is set in present-day New York. Triggered by the 911 trauma, the government hired Harold Finch (Michael Emerson) to build a machine that'd monitor and detect acts of terrorism. But the machine's power exceeded its purpose. Aside from seeing major acts of terror (those that concern a great number of people), it also identifies threats dealing with specific targets. This is where John Reese (Jim Caviezel), an ex-member of the U.S. Special Forces and CIA, enters the story. Finch and Reese work together to prevent crimes from happening. As what Finch’d always say in the beginning of every ep., victim or perpetrator, if a person's number's up, they'd find that person.
The plot's pretty cool. No, it’s supah dupah cool (HAHAHA!) --- messing up with fate, playing God and stopping what's bound to happen from happening. Wild! Haha! Person of Interest has the right mix of suspense, drama and action. How they get the means to do what they do, how they always find a hole to work their way out - it's craaaazy. Haha! The tandem of Finch and Reese is also interesting; one being the genius introvert-type while the other is the physically capable badass. Haha! While doing heroic stuff and all, they still have their (secret) personal lives to deal with (note that everyone thinks they’re already dead). See, they’re very much aware of the existence of this so-called “machine” that a special group of people is after them. Oh, and let's not forget the devious Elias who's got bigger plans of taking over underground New York.J
Based on my OA reaction, I guess it's safe to say that I enjoy watching Person of Interest!J I always catch myself saying “wow” and “cool” with amusement every time a new twist is revealed, or every time they show some cool stuff out there, like when Finch'd use his hacking skills or when he'd get access to everything through his kabillion dollars. Haha!J There’s still more to the plot that’s about to come in the future, and I just can’t wait to find out.
I just hope more people will notice the show. I don’t understand why, but it’s not getting that much attention even if it’s really good. Come on, guys. Spread the word! Lol. Give it a try. I’m sure you’ll like it as much as I do.J
Season 2 is now close to its end, and things just keep on getting more exciting! After this, I’ll go work on my other-series-to-watch list to take my mind off anticipating season 3. Torture! Lol. There’s THE FINDER, ARROW and THE BIG BANG THEORY (I know I’m kinda(no, super) late with this one, but whatever!). Hahaha!
