Your Next Box Set: Person Of Interest

On the lookout for a new boxset to spend your evenings devouring? Each week, hmv.com will be recommending you a series that you will have wishing those cold nights would go for a good while longer. This week, we recommend mysterious crime drama Person Of Interest…

 

What it is?

The basic premise is thus, Howard Finch, a billionaire software genius has designed a programme that is designed to detect acts of terror before they can happen, by monitoring the entire world through every mobile phone, email and surveillance camera. Deciding to take the thing out on to the streets, he partners with John Reese, an ex-CIA operative, together they then decide to stop acts of terror before they happen, in top secrecy…

 

Who’s in it?

Jim Caviezel (who played Jesus himself in The Passion Of The Christ) stars as Reese, the badass former CIA operative, while Saw’s Michael Emerson plays Finch. There are also regular roles for The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button actress Taraji P. Henson, Amy Acker, star of Dollhouse, and Mystic River man Kevin Chapman.

 

Why should I watch it?

The script is full of twists and turns and the show has quietly built up a really hardcore fanbase, without any real fanfare. It's the kind of show you can put on and suddenly find yourself watching six episodes in a sitting. And you should...

 

Describe the show in three words…

Twisty, turny, tremendous fun. 

 

The second season of Person Of Interest is released on Monday (June 16th) in hmv stores all over the UK.
