AP Fatalism

It's rather unhealthy to be honest.

Season 2 actually arrived just a week ago. =D

Seriously though, this is not your typical Crime/Drama series. When I first saw the promotional for it when it first aired on TV, I was just like "lol oh look another CSI NY." Boy was I wrong. I watched a few clips of it on Youtube and that was enough to prompt me to get the entire first season. Went on a marathon and I was very pleased. Hooked all the way until the end.

The show involves Christopher Nolan's brother Jonah Nolan (who worked on The Dark Knight) and is produced by Bad Robot Productions (Fringe, Lost, Revolution) and the writing is just incredible. There are twists and turns EVERYWHERE and they're not even cliches! The character himself has a lot of Batman elements without the ridiculous spandex suit and the best parts? He kicks ass in a suit and speaks in a voice that makes Christian Bale sound illiterate. The only TV show I really committed to before this was Hawaii Five-0, which is on hiatus until the 27th of September. I came across this on a very boring summer day and I'm glad I did. I recommend this to anybody who's looking for a new TV show to pick up.

Synopsis taken from the back of both DVD boxes for you

Season 1 Boxset

"YOU ARE BEING WATCHED. A supercomputer developed by reclusive billionaire and software genius Harold Finch (Michael Emerson who played Ben Linus on LOST) analyzes data patterns in surveillance for the U.S government to identify impending acts of terrorism. But the computer, known only as "The Machine," can also identify ordinary people who are about to be involved in violent crimes. Can those crimes be stopped before they take place? Secretly tapping into The Machine, Finch and ex-CIA agent John Reese (Jim Caviezel, who played a pretty badass Jesus in Passion of the Christ) use vigilante tactics and state-of-the-art technology to identify the soon-to-be victims and prevent the crimes from occuring. Meanwhile, two NYPD detectives (Taraji P. Henson, Kevin Chapman) are drawn into the cases and the mystery surrounding the two covert crime fighters. From
The Dark Knight
's Jonathan Nolan and J.J Abrams' Bad Robot Productions (
Fringe, Lost, Revolution
) comes all 23 heart-pounding and thought-provoking Season 1 episodes of the edge-of-your-seat thriller series
Person of Interest.

Season 2 Boxset

VICTIM OR PERPETRATOR, IF YOUR NUMBER'S UP, WE'LL FIND YOU. The Machine identifies another gripping season's worth of potential crimes that must be stopped by billionaire tech genius Harold Finch (Michael Emerson) and ex-CIA operative John Reese (Jim Caviezel). Adversaries from Reese's undercover past and Finch's government work threaten the team's crie-fighting mission and anonymity. Meanwhile, NYPD Detectives Carter (Taraji P. Henson) and Fusco (Kevin Chapman) face down FBI probes and the dangerous tentacles of the police conspiracy known as "HR." From the creator Jonathan Nolan (
The Dark Knight
) and J.J Abrams' Bad Robot Productions (
Fringe, Lost, Revolution
) comes the dazzling 4-disc, 22-Episode Season Two.

Again, highly recommended. Has some of the best one-liners. Fangirl with me pl0x.

BTW, season 3 airs on September 24th Tuesdays at 10pm on CBS. Definitely looking forward to it! <3
