Critic Reviews for Person Of Interest Season 2

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2)

The show has evolved in all kinds of interesting ways.

Top Critic

There was decidedly less Harold in this [season premiere] episode, but what we did see was pretty awesome.

Jan 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Overall, the pace of this [finale] was quick and engaging, and they managed to cover a lot of ground in a short period of time.

Jan 8, 2019 | Full Review…

["The Contingency"] is where the show finally goes balls-out science fictional and it's amazing, smart and riveting. Amazing.

Jan 8, 2019 | Full Review…

One thing that POI has been doing well since the beginning of its run was balancing standalone episodes with more arc heavy episodes.

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

While I enjoy the weekly person of interest, I also find the use of recurring characters on this show to be lots of fun.

Nov 30, 2018 | Full Review…

The great return of Person of Interest last night reminded me that this CBS drama knows who it is more than just about every other show out there.

Mar 26, 2017 | Full Review…

Season Two digs deeper into the government conspiracies, corrupt police officials, and a renegade activist and maverick genius (Amy Acker) who wants to set the master program free...

Oct 6, 2016 | Full Review…

Acker's Root is fun to watch, especially how she plans out her kills.

Sep 27, 2012 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

Emerson's mysterioso act never gets old, and for a guy best known for having played Jesus, Caviezel gives excellent beatdowns.

Audience Reviews for Person Of Interest: Season 2

  • Sep 21, 2014
    J.J. Abrams' hit television series Person of Interest is an exciting drama that gets richer and more compelling in Season 2. The writing is a lot tighter than in the first season, and develops some very interesting story arcs. In addition to John and Harold saving people whose numbers they receive from the Machine, the sinister HR origination rebuilds and goes after detectives Fusco and Carter, Root infiltrates the Defense Department in order to find the Machine, and the Machine comes under attack from a mysterious group seeking to control it. Amy Acker, Sarah Shahi, and Ken Leung join the cast as recurring characters and add some interesting dynamics that bring new energy to the show. Person of Interest delivers an exceptional second season that opens up the series to new and thrilling possibilities.

    More complex long running stories, and exceptional back story, create fleshed out characters, and another great season
  • Jun 03, 2016
    The show improves further from season one as the characters develop, and storylines are increasingly well written (improving on the high standard set by season one) as the ever beautifully shot scenes of New York continue to stun viewers. Well worth a watch, and everything that comes after is spectacular
  • May 27, 2016
    The best show ever made
  • Apr 12, 2016
    A show that gets better and better the more it sheds its procedural stories.
  • Apr 10, 2016
    Just action packed with awesome adventures. Almost as if watching a cool action thriller movie
  • Dec 05, 2015
    There is no flaw or weakness at all. Jonathan Nolan did the awesome job again.
  • Sep 04, 2015
    Binge watch in Netflix. Best show Ive seen so far. Love it and love the cast. Great acting, real kickass, great action. Sometimes comical at some comments and keeps me on edge of seat. LOVE IT!!!!!!!
  • Oct 04, 2014
    Three stars because his season was good and getting GREAT up to a few episodes past the mid season. Then they made that horrid "Relevance" episode and started changing all of the dynamics of the show. It started declining--fast!
