  • This is the rare crime drama that revels in actual mystery, its dark, paranoid tone embodied by two damaged heroes. show more

  • The characters aren't terribly deep and the dialog doesn't take advantage of Emerson's and Caviezel's acting chops. show more

  • If Person of Interest can calibrate the relationship between the leads in a way that makes their interactions more compelling, and if the show finds ways to answer Nolan's questions in creative and unexpected ways, it could be CBS' next addictive drama. If it ends up being a post-9/11 version of 'The Equalizer,' then this person will quickly lose interest. show more
