    IMO,Person of Interest is one of the most innovative,exciting,sometimes humorous and interesting shows on television right now,its part crime drama,part sci-fi and part comic book,I hope this show stays on the air for many,many seasons to come,the only show IMO that comes close to POI’s level of “cool” is Arrow on the CW.
