With Jonathan Nolan, Greg Plageman and Bad Robot behind the wheel, Person of Interest is a truly amazing, well written sci-fi mystery/drama about a programmer and an ex-assassin, who are sent the social security numbers of people about to be involved in a violent crime by a mass surveillance system. This show is very mysterious and compelling, it also gets less episodic every season, much like another Bad Robot show, Fringe. It has many great characters and a few seasons in, anyone’s death feels like fair game. The soundtrack by Ramin Djawadi is one of the best I’ve ever heard, and the series finale is absolutely incredible! In the end, if you like mysteries and good writing in a TV show, you definitely need to try Person of Interest. My age recommendation is 11 and up if only because any younger might get pretty confused.
Available on iTunes, Amazon, and Netflix.
