“You are being watched. The government has a secret system: a machine that spies on you every hour of every day. I know because I built it. I designed the machine to detect acts of terror, but it sees everything. Violent crimes involving ordinary people, people like you. Crimes the government considered irrelevant. They wouldn’t act, so I decided I would. But I needed a partner, someone with the skills to intervene. Hunted by the authorities, we work in secret. You’ll never find us, but victim or perpetrator, if your number’s up…we’ll find you.”
This is the opening voice over of CBS’s hit drama, Person of Interest. Its first season averaged 14 million viewers each week, earning it the award for Favorite New TV Drama from the People’s Choice Awards. If you’re one of the apt viewers, you’ll be excited to know that Season One will be available on September 4th, 2012.
Jim Caviezel plays former CIA agent and U.S. Army Special Forces veteran, John Reese who is brought in by Harold Finch (played by Emmy award winner, Michael Emerson) to monitor the behavior of individuals marked by The Machine as potential terrorists. Finch is the inventor of The Machine that reveals the social security numbers of people who are about to commit a crime or to be the victim of a crime. It is Reese’s job to hunt the persons of interest down and stop them before the crime is ever committed.
