Person of InterestTV Show | 2011
In Person of Interest: Mission Creep (2011), when the camera pans through items in the police evidence locker, a large Virgin Mary statue can briefly be seen, similar to the miniature ones filled with heroin in the TV show Lost (2004), another show executive produced by J.J. Abrams.
Several nods are made to The Count of Monte Cristo throughout the show. The book shows up as a school assignment in Person of Interest: Witness (2011). The teacher who assigned that book, Elias, has a back story similar to that of Edmond Dantes. In that he was betrayed by someone close, put in prison, presumed dead. Later freed, Elias is ready to serve revenge as a dish best served cold to all back stabbers, and take over the world he previously was just grateful to be a part of. Jim Caviezel portrayed Edmond Dantes in "Alexandre Dumas' The Count Of Monte Cristo," and Dagmara Dominczyk, who played a Person Of Interest in Person of Interest: Many Happy Returns (2012) also played the fiance of Edmond Dantes in The Count of Monte Cristo (2002).
A high-concept melding of vigilante heroes and vast conspiracies in a world of cyber-surveillance, Person of Interest (2011-2016) launched to great success in 2011 as a mystery puzzle in the modern world where big brother is watching you and a supercomputer is cross-referencing your data, but it wound down in the ratings over the years. The 13 episodes of the final, abbreviated season were essentially burned off in early summer 2016 by a network that had lost faith in the show. If you measure by ratings, it limped to its conclusion, but anyone who followed the show know that the quality never dipped, the characters only became more interesting, and the final season paid off the commitment of longtime fans.
Third, the person must be consistent with whatever persona the news show wants. Mike Wallace was aggressive for 60 years. CBS did not use him for human interest stories. In contrast, the human interest TV journalist must be pleasant, yet not a pushover. He must ask decent questions, and then let the person being interviewed tell his story. He must not make the person nervous. If he is nervous, he cannot tell his story well. 041b061a72
