The cast and showrunner of "Person of Interest" at NYCC

I'm a big fan of the television show "Person of Interest." I think that the writers and directors, led by creator Jonathan Nolan, have done something really interesting. I think it's possible to look at the show on many levels. It's an old fashioned action show, it's a science fiction show, it's a meditation of human behavior and meaning and purpose, it's a meditation on rights, it's a parable of the 21st century, it's about privacy and what it means. It has a very old school approach to heroism and redemption and the fight to do the right thing. It's also a very subversive show. The cops aren't necessarily good guys. Corruption isn't about one bad egg, it's endemic.

I got to spend some time at NYCC sitting in as Showrunner and Executive Producer Greg Plageman and cast members Jim Caviezel, Taraji P. Henson, Kevin Chapman, Sarah Shahi and Amy Acker sat and answered questions before an audience.
