Clever, exciting, great characters, great plots - what more do you want for your money?

I already have watched the complete 5 series of POI but I cannot help go back and watch it again. This is not a sad reflection on how empty my life is but more how empty it is since POI finished. For my money this is one of the cleverest 'hi-tech' sereis of the last few years. If you like(d) Mr Robot, you'll probably like this series. The technology is believable and the reveals about the characters as the various seasons evolve is very good indeed. The central character 'Mr Reese' is the kind of guardian we haven't seen since 'The Equalizer', if anyone remembers McCall and his desire to save the weak from exploitation and violence. The 'chief-techy' is Finch is played by, as one friend put it, "the weasly guy from Lost". Personally, I think it is one of the best characterisations in this kind of popular TV series of its time. I don't know if he did receive one but it is Grammy level acting, imho. I never tired of watching it the first time round - in fact it was a topic of discussion each week amongst a group of my friends, so into it we were - and watching season 1 (and probably I'll watch all the seasons again, now I have started) again I can highly recommend this series. It is a shame that Amazon won't allow you to 'taste' one episode. If you like believeable high-tech drama, with the kind of twists and turns of Lost or Walking Dead, lots of reveals about the characters which build your interest and some great story lines, then like me you'll probably enjoy it yourself.
