Went on far too long
Verified purchase
This should have been a 13 episode season, not 22. It went on far too long - and the individual episodes about strangers one had never encountered before became distractions. I was a fan of the earlier seasons, and the main story was great, very well thought out. But I'm afraid they lost me halfway through this season, when they kept drifting off the main story. I ended up reading about the episodes on Wikipedia just to see if they were dealing with the main storyline or not, before deciding whether to watch them. The makers of this programme appeared to think, we're on a good thing, let's make more of it. But they should have restricted themselves to 13 episodes, the norm with many other TV programmes. And once they had introduced the main storyline and set that in motion, then they should have paid more attention to it, instead of the "irrelevant" episodes. And they should have let Root and Shaw get together - a little bit of life & joy, instead of doom, gloom and murder. So: Very disappointed & to be honest, I stopped bothering with it half way through. I won't even be finishing this blu-ray, and I definitely won't be buying season 5.

IMPACT NEEDLESSLY REDUCED
Verified purchase
This series has so much going for it - a cautionary tale of how computer surveillance can be so abused if in the wrong hands. Harold Finch's machine pinpoints people at risk, he and his team thus able help. Meanwhile the sinister, all-powerful rival Samaritan is dedicated to removing anyone who poses a threat. This includes Finch and associates, they more than ever in considerable danger....

Twenty two episodes. Secret new (highly impressive) headquarters for Finch. Ever-accumulating problems - not only from Samaritan but rival gang leaders Elias and Dominic, the latter's Band of Brothers network a force to reckon with.

Interesting scripts, some fine acting - Michael Emerson's quirky Harold always of interest. Much action, final episodes very tense.

Sadly I could not enjoy the show as much as hoped - this being one of those offerings with a frustratingly intrusive music track. (In bonuses the creators proclaim how proud of it they are.) Admittedly it is great during action scenes, but a confounded annoyance when competing with dialogue - especially when so much is communicated in hushed voices. Why have music at such times - especially when lead actor Jim Caviezel is so prone to husky utterances through a barely opened mouth? So many other shows know well how to use music with restraint. I do wish "Person of Interest" were one of them.

Bonuses include a 2014 Comic-Con Question and Answer session to pave the way for this new season, all concerned under strict instructions to give nothing away. Ideally this should perhaps be on Disc 1. A preferable alternative could be a Disc 6 panel looking back on the season just completed.

In short? Much will please addicts, as fellow reviewers clearly indicate. Unnecessary obstacles prevent full enjoyment for those not wishing subtitles in order clearly to follow what is being said.

Just a small information about subtitles...
Verified purchase
Just an information that is lacking in the Amazon site: this series Dvd has subtitles in english, danish, finnish, norwegian and swedish. There are no subtitles in french, spanish or italian. As I am not from an english speaking country I find very useful when informations about subtitles are available in the Amazon site. Unfortunately that was not the case. So for future references I leave here something useful about the product. Nothing that I could say would be better than the reviews already published so I only will reiterate that this amazing series is one of the best series of the last 10 years!

possible best season so far

Series Four

If you have been watching Person of Interest thus far, rest assured that this is an excellent series with 22 more top notch episodes. If you have not been watching Person of Interest then you are probably better doubling back to the start, but you might just about follow things if you started here and went with the flow.

The balance between one off elements and the overall series arc is handled with more confidence. If anything the writing is more assured than previously and there is no shortage of new challenges for our plucky heroes. The lead characters are fleshed out a little more, without straying into over indulgence. Similarly characters are introduced and dispatched with a commendable lack of sentiment.

There are a good few unexpected twists and some real emotion.

The word from the States is that series five keeps up the good work.

Up to date technology-wise - continually developing narrative.
Verified purchase
Love the characters and the casting. The storylines almost appear to have run their course when something occurs to jump-start the narrative again. The casting is superb and some of the action scenes are spine-tingling. Great series and the focus on AI as a potentially destructive force is very contemporary - reminds me of Stephen Hawking's famous warnings about its dangers! Great show all round!

Excellent series! I can't stop watching it once I started! Best drama I've seen. Excellent writing. That makes all the difference in the world and I love how they weave humor into the intense drama.

MIND BLOWING!

Season 4 delivers another epic masterpiece that we've come to expect from JJ Abrams! The man just gets better and better with every show he creates! Jim Caviezel (John Reese) is tougher and somewhat more lethal than before! Harold (Michael Emerson) is so much stronger than any of us thought!

Root, Fusco and Shaw are all amazing characters, and I couldn't wait to see what season five has in store for all of them!

One of my favourite shows ever!

My favourite show on TV

My favourite show on TV! Love it! Each series gets better and better. This season The Machine is in direct competition with the opposite who starts to tighten the grip it has over the US government and beyond. It really cool how all the stories are interlinked and the many threads that make sense when it becomes clear. May this show continue!
