CBS Gives Full-Season Orders to Person of Interest, Unforgettable

Michael Emerson and Jim Caviezel in "Person of Interest"

CBS has given full-season orders to crime series Unforgettable and Person of Interest, the season’s top two new dramas.

Unforgettable stars Poppy Montgomery as Carrie Wells, a police detective with hyperthymesia — it’s a rare medical condition that allows her to remember everything —  who reluctantly joins the NYPD’s Queens homicide unit after her former boyfriend and partner asks for her help on a case.

Created by J.J. Abrams and The Dark Knight co-writer Jonathan Nolan, Person of Interest stars Michael Emerson (Lost) as Mr. Finch, a mysterious billionaire who develops a computer program that predicts the identity of those who will be involved in a violent crime sometime in the future. However, the program can’t determine whether the person of interest will be the perpetrator, the victim or a witness, nor when or where the crime will take place. So Finch recruits a presumed-dead former CIA agent (Jim Caviezel) to help him stop the crimes from taking place.

    Thought both were utter trash, but I’m all for shows getting picked up.

    If you enjoy stuff like Taken, Punisher or even Human Target you owe it to yourself to check out Person of Interest.

    I almost didn’t watch the pilot since I had quite a few shows already but I have to say now it’s my favorite new show, glad to see it get picked up.

    Person of Interest is a damn good show. Jim Caviezel is a frikkin badass, he would have made a good Punisher.
