Is this show good?

The first season is very rough but I'd say it picks up by the last 5 episodes and pretty much never lets up.

It's called Sherlock, it's about the same quality as Season 2 of Heroes.

Good article on a respected tv critic who didn't like PoI and dismissed it at first, but 5 years later, he caught up with it and glad he did.

I feel like you are being unnecessarily aggressive ("aggro"). I am just here to ask questions about if it is good or not, like my favorite TV shows Heroes, The Walking Dead, and The 100.

You have to understand, it's just that when you ask how Person of Interest compares to Heroes, it's like going in to The Wire thread and asking if it is it like Law and Order.

Isn't that just comparing two decent but flawed tv shows? Seems pretty appropriate, to me.

Just a reminder for those of you who have time and the ability to re-watch s4. Chris Fisher recommends re-watching the S4 2-part finale before the premiere airs tonight since it serves more as a part 3 to that episode than it does a straight premiere refresh, which will likely be next week's first ep.

ep 1 stuff
I'm amazed the show wasn't over in the first few minutes. All of them should have easily been dead. Considering that samiritan marked them all for death, the PMC goons sent after them sure were sloppy as gently caress. Saved by plot armor.

The only good part was Finch struggling on whether or not to wipe the memories of the machine. Also copying the military and making a budget supercomputer using PS3s
