Default Re: Television shows: What do you watch?

Anyone watching 'Person of Interest' TV show ? It promises to be a seat-edge thriller. It has overtaken CSI-NY in popularity. It is about how a Billionaire hires an ex-Green Beret/CIA operative to use the electronics eavesdropping system he developed to prevent crimes before they occur. ‎Jim Caviezel acts as the ex-Green Beret operative who is a perfect fit for the role - silent as a ghost, cold and incredibly efficient.

9/10 in my view.

Slightly far fetched, but what the hell- it makes for great viewing. Hope you caught Fringe...?

The other day while shifting channels, saw a very familiar face of Mr Byomkesh Bakshi on one of the DD channels. Needless to say, sat through the entire episode and enjoyed it in entirety !

One of the best Indian TV shows ever. Too bad it is a rare sighting on TV these days.

You mean Mr.Finch ?
It may not be all that far fetched. You see the Snowden issue ? NSA always had the capability.

In FXCrime they just started the first season. In Amazon they are selling the entire season in DVD. The first season costs 15 USD while the second season is 35 USD. I have CSI NY collection in DVD. It is about time I started collecting PI too.

45 min of Suspense and Action - worth watching in a Rainy day.
