Netflix Crime Shows: Person of Interest

Release Year: 2011

Created by Jonathan Nolan

Starring Jim Caviezel, Taraji P. Henson, Kevin Chapman, Michael Emerson, Amy Acker, Sarah Shahi

Harold Finch (Emerson) is a billionaire software designer who creates an artificial intelligence machine designed to stop crimes before they can happen. Finch teams up with former CIA operative John Reese (Caviezel) who was thought to be dead, to find the persons of interest before they can commit their crime.

They must do all this under a cloud of secrecy because the NYPD (Henson and Chapman) is after them and so are CIA agents and a rogue hacker (Acker) who wants to access The Machine.

The elements of artificial intelligence and the government always watching us is a nice theme to explore in this series that will remind viewers of the movie Minority Report.

There are five seasons of Person of Interest available to stream on Netflix right now.
