Trailer for JJ Abrams and Jonah Nolan TV show, Person of Interest

05.21.2011

We don't normally discuss TV all that much here, but when JJ Abrams is producing a show written by Jonah Nolan and it stars Jim Caviezel, I think itís something that might interest you guys.

Itís called Person of Interest, and stars Caviezel as a now homeless, ex-government agent recruited by Lostís Michael Emerson to track down potential criminal offenders using a mysterious set of numbers, which all feed into a larger, unclear picture.

It sounds like a cross between WANTED and MINORITY REPORT, but stripped of any sort of fantasy or overt sci-fi elements. Obviously THE DARK KNIGHT is mentioned more than once. Check it out below and see what you think.

Extra Tidbit: Itís just so hard to trust any new network TV shows as being good. USA, FX, HBO and Showtime would seem to have a monopoly on quality TV as of late.

Minority Report, yes

I don't feel the Wanted vibe (except for the red threads). Maybe if they threw in a Viper or Jolie.

It actually feels like Batman (without the mask and cape) meets Quantum Leap (without the leaping and Ziggy).

Jesus Christ is back...and he's pissed!

Wow! Abrams & a Nolan working together. Must see for me. This show (along w/ Alcatraz) looks amazing.

And yes...As if you couldn't tell already, I'm a huge Abrams fanboy. I loved EVERY BIT of Alias & LOST (Star Trek & M:I-3 also, but Cloverfield...not so much) and I'm currently hoping Fringe will make it beyond a 4th season next year...that is, if the pricks as FOX TV don't kill it 1st.

How can you forget AMC...

...the network that airs Breaking Bad and the show that's won the Emmy for Best Drama the past 3 years (I don't think Mad Men is all that great, but it doesn't stop the previous bit from being true).

Blasphemy!

Anyway, this looks "meh." As eager as I was to see Michael Emerson in a new role, I didn't want him to basically play a Ben Linus clone. Shame.

AMC is awesome. Even their failures are good.

I thought Rubicon had a lot of potential, but it definitely seemed like a show that needed to take it's time to get going.

Actually, not ALL of their failures are good. The Prisoner remake (with Jim Caveziel, coincidentally) sucked fucking ass. Probably another reason why I'm hesitant about this new show...

Actually, no, the best show on TV is Breaking Bad.

This is a fact.

ehh

Alias and Lost started out good but bot those shows really went down in the later seasons. I think Abbrams should stick to movies for a while. Star Trek was amazing and Super 8 looks like it will be one of the years best. this just looks like a rehash of failed crime shows

Looks like something I could watch unlike the actual clip which shit itself at 2:44.
Extra Tidbit: Yeah I hate getting addicted to a series only to have them pull the plug after the 1st season, or 3rd, namely Firefly and Deadwood. You invest your time and get to know the characters and sometimes even connect with them only to have them end up on the television operating table of death. "Sorry but this show has slipped into a lack of interest coma and we are pulling the plug". Bastards.
