Upcoming Spy DVDs: Person of Interest: The Complete First Season
TV Shows On DVD reports that Warner Home Video will release Person of Interest: The Complete First Season on DVD and Blu-ray/DVD combo sets on September 4th. The CBS show, produced by J.J. Abrams and Jonah Nolan, is basically The Equalizer meets Batman... and that's pretty cool. I still find star Jim Caviezel (the 2009 Prisoner remake) and his Batman voice kind of hard to take, but the show's got enough going for it that I can get past that. Besides, co-star Michael Emerson (Lost) is awesome. Caviezel plays a former CIA operative looking to atone for his shadowy past by helping the helpless (those with the odds against them) with the aid of Emerson's tech billionaire, who controls a massive surveillance network that can predict what people will be involved in violent crimes. Extras on both sets include an unaired extended pilot episodes with audio commentary as well as a commentary track on the broadcast pilot, a gag reel and the featurette "Living in an Age of Surveillance." The 6-disc DVD set will run you $59.98 retail, and the 10-disc Blu-ray/DVD combo set (which also includes Ultraviolet digital copies) is just a bit more at $69.97. Of course, both are available to pre-order for less on Amazon.
