Just finished mainlining season 1, Person of Interest

(Mainlining - as in, watching a series from S1, Ep 1 straight through. I did it over a few days, given the 24 ep season.)

OK. Quick evaluation:

OMG OMG WHY DID I MISS THIS WHEN IT FIRST AIRED?

It pushes all my TV thriller buttons ever.

In light of recent events, it made me...giggle nervously at points the scripts obviously intended to be fictional, where the scriptwriters obviously intended the reference to be fictional or a throwaway. Cause the programs they thought were fiction...were real. (Hi, STELLAR WIND)

Lose a half point, however, for the Machine seeming a little too...aware of itself.

Rating: 4.5/5
