Critic Reviews for Person Of Interest: Season 3

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3)

Season Three adds another partner to the team (Sarah Shahi as a coolly efficient former CIA assassin), turns Root into a wary ally, and most dramatically kills off a trusted and beloved ally, a loss that sends the reliable Reese into a dramatic tailspin.

October 6, 2016 | Full Review…

It truly is a masterpiece of modern action TV that is smart and flows at a satisfying pace that will keep you on the edge of your seat for most episodes.

May 16, 2014 | Full Review…

Last night's episode of Person of Interest may fall into my top five for the show.

October 23, 2013 | Full Review…

It did deliver on the humor infused action and great one-liners from Reese.

October 3, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A smart show that keeps getting smarter, Person Of Interest evolved from a procedural with a twist into something entirely itself: a well-paced, tightly constructed sci-fi thriller that continually questions its assumptions.

Top Critic

Person of Interest... has doubled down on its intrigue to hastily evolve from a bland procedural with a nifty visual aesthetic... into a solid action-thriller that intersperses twist-filled standalone episodes into its season-long arcs.

Audience Reviews for Person Of Interest: Season 3

Incredibly ambitious, Season 3 of Person of Interest is daring and full of provocative science fiction issues. While John and Shaw work with Harold to save people whose numbers comes up, the Machine tasks Root with a mysterious objective separate from the numbers; meanwhile an organization called Decima works on building a second machine that could undermine everything that Harold and John have been working for. This season's story arcs continue to question the nature of A.I. and explore what its implications are for human/civil rights. Still, most of the episodes stick to the case-of-the-week format (at least in the A Story), which are action-packed and full of intrigue. Remarkably thrilling, the third season of Person of Interest raises the stakes, delivering a game changing finale that opens up Pandora's Box.
