Person of Interest: The Complete Second Season (DVD)
In this crime thriller, a former CIA agent, John Reese (Jim Caviezel) teams up with mysterious billionaire Harold Finch (Michael Emerson) to prevent violent crimes before they happen. Reese's special training in covert operations appeals to Finch, a software genius who invented a program, aka “The Machine,” that can identify people soon to be involved in violent crimes. Tapping into ubiquitous surveillance feeds throughout the city, the two work outside of the law, combining Reese's black ops skills with Finch's technological prowess and unlimited wealth to unravel the mystery of the person of interest, and stop the crime before it happens. Also working with Reese and Finch are detectives Carter and Fusco (Taraji P. Henson & Kevin Chapman). With infinite crimes to investigate, Reese and Finch find that the right person, with the right information, at the right time, can change everything.]]>

Fast forward to a few days ago, I checked on Season 2 on Amazon to see when it would come out on DVD, and I found out - much to my joyful surprise - that I could purchase the episodes on Instant Video. So that's exactly what I did.
I am very happy to say that Season 2 does not disappoint. If you loved the high-speed action and tech savvy of the main duo (along with the aid of their friends in the police department), then this is a continuation of that, and more. The characters develop further as the season progresses and we find out more about them, the overarching conspiracy comes back but is deeper and more expansive, and we see many familiar characters as well as new ones - all of whom help enrich the story.
I can fairly say that I will probably buy the DVD set when it comes out, so that way I can update my collection (I already have Season 1 on DVD) and watch the episodes when I don't have an Internet connection. Plus, my connection isn't the best, so quality fluctuates and I oftentimes had to wait for the video to buffer oftentimes, so owning the season on disc will be a huge plus.
Meanwhile, I am genuinely excited for what Season 3 will have to offer. Season 1 left us with a cliffhanger and lots of questions, and Season 2 continues the trend, so I am definitely amped for whatever comes next.
TLDR: if you liked Season 1, you'll love Season 2. More action, new characters introduced, old ones fleshed out more, conspiracy is revealed more. Will buy on DVD as well.
Some people have complained about the addition of Shaw, but let's face it, it would get boring after awhile if it was always John Reese shooting the bad guys and kicking the crap out of everyone, every week. Shaw is a nice addition. Leon adds comic relief. The only one I am not crazy about is Root. I wish that they would kill her off as she's annoying.
I like the whole idea of altruism with Reese, Carter, and Finch and the idea that people who do bad things can change to do good such as Fusco. I'm completely addicted to POI and have had to watch some of the episodes of season two a couple of times as it does become mind bending.
Looking forward to season 3. I think the show will last up to 6 seasons, and probably should not go much beyond that, as X-files did and Dexter. Both of those shows should have ended earlier but T.V. execs being what they are will forgo quality to continue to line their pockets regardless if the show goes down hill.
The second season of “Person of Interest,” which ran from September 2012 to May 2013, continued the story of Harold Finch, John Reese, Joss Carter, Lionel Fusco, a host of nefarious villains… and of course, Harold Finch’s “Machine.” At the second season’s start, a mysterious woman called “Root" has abducted Finch. Reese is kept busy trying to find and rescue Harold, while at the same time dealing with the new “irrelevant numbers” that the “Machine” keeps spitting out. Meanwhile, Carter and Fusco have their own problems. They must deal with the sinister crime boss Elias and a new threat: a corrupt organization within the NYPD called “HR.” This cabal of crooked cops is working with Elias, and they all want Carter and Fusco dead.
All of this is brought to life through the superb acting of Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson, Taraji P. Henson, Kevin Chapman, and many others. The scripts are, as usual, brilliantly written. As it did in Season 1, “Person of Interest’s” second season continues to engage and compel viewers with thrilling action-packed episodes that are frequently tinged with dry humor. Here is a show that poses serious questions about the intrusion of technology in our lives and its effects upon our right to privacy; and whether or not vigilante justice, even for noble ends, is ever justified. Most highly recommended.
