->''You are being watched. The government has a secret system, a machine that spies on you every hour of every day. I know because I built it. I designed the machine to detect acts of terror but it sees everything. Violent crimes involving ordinary people, people like you. Crimes the government considered "irrelevant." They wouldn't act, so I decided I would. But I needed a partner, someone with the skills to intervene. Hunted by the authorities, we work in secret. You'll never find us, but victim or perpetrator, if your number's up... we'll find ''you.

''Person of Interest'' is a science fiction action-thriller TV series that started airing in September 2011 on CBS. It was created by Creator/JonathanNolan and developed along with Creator/JJAbrams and Bryan Burk. Prior to airing, it was much-hyped for the strong pedigree of cast and crew, and later the pilot received positive reviews. The show aired five complete seasons, wrapping on June 21, 2016.

John Reese (Creator/JimCaviezel) is a former CIA agent, reduced to living rough as a drunk homeless man in New York City after a falling-out with the United States government. He's bailed out of trouble with the NYPD by a mysterious billionaire named Mr. Finch (Creator/MichaelEmerson), who has a strange and potentially-dangerous job offer. As it turns out, Finch is a software genius who designed the government supercomputer--"The Machine"--that monitors all surveillance data, analyzing and filtering for persons involved in potential threats to national security. When The Machine identifies one of these persons, it transmits the individual's Social Security number to the government.

As a side effect, The Machine also spits out "irrelevant" numbers that correspond to someone that it predicts will soon be involved in a violent crime which is not relevant to national security. To help these potential victims (or to stop these potential killers, as the case may be), Finch hires Reese and together, they use their collective skills and resources [[WeHelpTheHelpless to help innocent people]]. Along the way, they cross paths with Detective Joss Carter (Creator/TarajiPHenson), who is at first an antagonist, investigating a number of violent incidents involving a mysterious "[[BadassInANiceSuit man in a suit]]" (Reese), but who later begins cooperating with Reese and Finch.

Rounding out the cast of [[VillainOfTheWeek weekly rogues]] and [[WeHelpTheHelpless "irrelevant numbers"]] is an ensemble of recurring characters, many of whom are important to the longer [[StoryArc story arcs]]:
* Detective Lionel Fusco (Creator/KevinChapman), a former DirtyCop trying to [[TheAtoner redeem himself]] by working with Reese and Finch.
