    In my opinion, “Person of Interest” is the best scripted drama on the air, followed closely by “Elementary.”

  • Robbie Bishop

    “Person of Interest” was amazing. It’s easily the smartest show on broadcast television. Every episode I’ve seen has been top-notch. Acting, directing, storylines; everything is just amazing. No episode has disappointed.
    I can’t think of another broadcast show that’s started within the past 5 years to be as smart, strong, and amazing as “Person of Interest.”

    “Elementary” was also another good one. The episode, directing, and acting were all very nice.

    GO CBS!
