    Person of Interest is at its best when sticking to cutting-edge topics, be it Root's philosophical extremes or ethical discussions of surveillance (as in "Nothing to Hide," which introduces a group of privacy-seeking terrorists), and in demonstrating the limitations between what the Machine can accomplish on its own (hacking just about anything) and what only someone like Shaw can manage (infiltrating a trophy wife's boozy bookclub).

    S1 was good, S2 better and S3 off the charts. This season gave a entirely different meaning to what gray characters mean. Empires collapsed, Loss&Pain magnified and all **** went to hell. Ask anyone whoever watched the season finale, they are dying to watch Season 4. Expand

    Season 3 was amazing as the show went more serialized. The show is better that way and with a shocking death in the beginning of the season, POI could do no wrong. Expand

    Season 3 start solid with "Liberty"(3x01) and "Nothing To Hide"(3x02), but after that "Lady Killer"(3x03) show the real potential of this season. Maybe "Reasonable Doubt" (3x04)is not the best of the show, but "Razgovor" (3x05) bring the full potential of POI with great acting and writing. Season 1 was great, Season 2 was fantastic and now season 3 have a chance to surpass both previous seasons. Expand

    Big improvement from last season. Each episode leaves you wanting more and thus far, I really like the return to what made the show great in season one. Continues to be an interesting look at the current society we live in. Expand
