‘Person of Interest’ Finale Praised on Social Media: ‘Endings Are Hard, This Was Spectacular’

CBS drama starring Michael Emerson and Jim Caviezel finishes on a high note after five seasons

Fans bid a sad farewell to “Person of Interest” on Tuesday night when the CBS drama ended its five-year run.

The series finale did not disappoint however, with many social media users heralding it as an example of how a great show should bow out.

“I’m so pleased I get to add to my short list of shows that ended amazingly well. Endings are hard, this was spectacular,” one Twitter user wrote.

“Unlike others, sustained quality writing, acting, directing and production values throughout the series,” another said.

And one viewer simply called it “so damn beautiful.”

The show starred two-time Emmy Award winner Michael Emerson as Harold Finch, the inventor of a super-surveillance computer, and “Person of Interest’s” final episode certainly sparked a more positive response than that of his last TV drama, “Lost,” in which he played Ben Linus.

“He was every man’s conscience. At the same time, he was Prometheus. He had brought something that threatened the structure of civilization,” Emerson said of his character, according to Forbes. He called the part “almost poetic.”

Created by Jonathan Nolan, “Person of Interest” was produced by Nolan, alongside “Lost’s” J.J. AbramsBryan Burk and Greg Plageman.

The gripping drama also starred Jim Caviezel, Taraji P. Henson, Kevin Chapman, Sarah Shahi and Amy Acker.

It premiered on Sept. 22, 2011, and won a number of awards over the next five seasons, including the 2016 People’s Choice Award for Favorite TV Crime Drama.
