TV show description:
This crime drama follows a presumed dead former-CIA agent named John Reese (Jim Caviezel) who teams up with a mysterious billionaire, Mr. Finch (Michael Emerson), who’s also believed to be dead. Their goal is to prevent violent crimes by using technology and their own brand of vigilante justice.
Finch is a software genius who has invented a program that uses pattern recognition to identify people who are about to be involved in violent crimes — either the victim or the perpetrator. It was originally built for the government to prevent another 9/11 disaster but found that it was predicting less catastrophic, “irrelevant” crimes. Finch built a “backdoor” into the machine so that, before erasing the “irrelevant” data each night, Finch is sent the social security number of a person about to be involved in a serious crime.
Finch recruits Reese because of his special training in covert operations. Using their combined skills, resources and advanced surveillance technology, they work outside of the law to identify “persons of interest” and stop crimes before they occur.
Reese’s actions draw the attention of the NYPD — including homicide detectives Carter (Taraji P. Henson) and Fusco (Kevin Chapman). The latter is a corrupt cop and Reese blackmails him into being a source of information inside the department.
With infinite crimes to investigate, Reese and Finch find that locating the right person, with the right information, at the right time, can change everything.
Episode #103 — Return 0
Finch, Reese, Fusco and Shaw embark on one last mission to prevent Samaritan from destroying The Machine and cementing its hold over mankind.
First aired: June 21, 2016.

Strange but I find myself following it

I love crime dramas and the story line on this one; this is best ont to come along since NYPD BLUE.
Just fought my way through two thirds of one show, then shut it off. Mixed up plot, did not hold my interest at all. I watch tons of TV and this just does not make the cut.
If you can not follow the plot or recognize the genius of POI then you have the mental aptitud of a circus monkey! This is by far the BEST show on TV period.
One of the best produced and acted police dramas on television to date. I love Jim Caviezel in anything he does, so I am instantly drawn to the well written shows he is a part of. The rest of the cast is flawless and it is my hope that this show is not cancelled like so many other good shows are sacrificed to some reality show.
By the way. It looks believable .. The main character does get shot/hurt. It is not like he is a super hero. His partner does get kidnapped … they are capable of being followed and exposed – Taraji Henson and Lionel Fusco are so right for the part. Great characters. The plots do not linger on they run one into the other in different circumstances … I can go on and on that’s how good the show is. PLEASE KEEP IT ON
Person of Interest is the best show on all the stations combined. It stimulates your imagination and make you think of possibilities beyond the norm. I love shows that do not insult my intelligence and it is good to have a good show to look at – Reality Shows are taking the public to a unstimimulating mind (cluster f—.) Time to bring back shows like this. However with that said you need to advertise the show more. I have introduced my friends to the show and they are now hooked – they did not know the show existed – the… Read more »
I am so happy that the above show has not been cancelled. Both my husband I really enjoy watching, it is very different and enjoyable,
Excellent Show. I look foreword to watching it each week.
EXCELLENT show! relevant to times and the “End Days”! Good mix of characters. Feels like a “real” superhero with real “powers” as it moves along. good dialog, believable plots and stories too. Keep it coming!
Looking forward to the next episode of “Person of Interest”.
When will that be?
