Person of Interest - Channel 5
Just got to be the best series on TV at the moment. A small team of people are protecting people from danger and death. The target people to be saved " a number" are selected by a computer once sponsored by the US government using networked resources of databases and CCTV.
James Caviezel as John Reese an ex CIA operative recruited as the muscle in the team is fantastic, displaying ultra cool when under pressure. He works closely with Michael Emmerson playing Harold Finch ( Lost ), the inventor of the computer. They have roped in two city detectives to help them in their quest to protect the "numbers", building very interesting but different relationships with both detectives.
Now halfway through the second series the writers have introduced a great new character - a dog " Bear" who takes commands in the Dutch language. Graubaer’s Boker, dog actors name is a purebred Belgian Malinois that is well trained and extremely talented. The dog is providing Finch the confidence to face the outside world after a period of captivity.
Their methods may be unorthodox but they do deliver results and as the story revolves around " a number" it gives the writers plenty of scope for exciting and interesting episodes. Try it, it's on Channel 5.
