Doux Top Twenty! Number 15: Person of Interest

Person of Interest is number 15 in Doux Reviews’ top twenty hitting shows.

PoI ran from 2011 to 2016 and we covered all five seasons, mostly as they aired. Nearly every episode was reviewed by Sunbunny, with the first few by Gus Brunetti (Hi, Gus! We miss you) and a few hither and yon by Mark Greig and Josie Kafka.

I’ll let Sunbunny take over from here.

Sunbunny: My journey with Person of Interest was a little unconventional.

I assume most people start writing for this site because there's a show they LOVE that we don't cover but I wasn't even watching Person of Interest when I volunteered to write reviews for it. I was a big fan of Doux Reviews (then known as Billie Doux) and wanted to join the community. I looked on their list of shows they were looking for reviewers for and I knew my mom had seen a few episodes of Person of Interest so I picked that off the list, almost randomly. I'm so glad I did. I've made so many friends through this site, writers, readers, and Twitter followers (I refuse to call it "X").

Enough about me. Person of Interest was such a great show and a good example of how shows can evolve over time for the better. It had a really good message. It had a really good finale. One line that still sticks with me is this: "Everyone dies alone, but if you mean something to someone, or helped someone or loved someone or even if a single person remembers you, then maybe you never really die at all."


  1. Thanks! I enjoyed the show and the reviews. I guess with AI gaining strength, it's more relevant today.

  2. I don't remember where I first heard of this show — it might actually have been Ars Technica, although it might well have been here — but I found it brilliant and loved it, especially once the arc started really picking up steam around the end of the second series (I think). It was a wonderfully intelligent take on AI and did a good job of making it all feel believable.

    Also yet another reminder — in this case via James Caviezel — that one always has to remember that actors are not the characters they play, and that one can enjoy the latter even if the former are less than agreeable people.

  3. NomakUK, you're right about Caviezel. Plus, as Person of Interest went on, a lot of the focus was on the other characters, all of whom I really liked. Especially Michael Emerson, Amy Acker, and the wonderful dog. :)

  4. BTW, Person of Interest is now on FreeVee and there's only two or three short (like 30 seconds) commercial breaks per episode. Yay!

  5. This show was a lot of fun. Amy Acker especially. But I always love Michael Emerson's understated power.
