With the help of surveillance equipment, the work "outside the law" and get the right criminal behind bars. When Reese's skills are noticed by Carter (Taraji P. Henson), a NYPD detective, and Fusco (Kevin Chapman), a police officer who Reese uses to his advantage, they investigate the crimes together and find that the right person, information, and at the right time, is able to change everything.
Amazing series this one. When I first started to watch it, I was trying to find in my mind if I ever saw a series that was similar to this one. Couldn't find any because there is none. At least in my opinion.
So Harold Finch created a Machine that it's able to surveil and find patterns that might be linked to a terrorist act. It was built after the 9-11 to prevent another attack of sorts. But the Machine detectes other crimes, like muderer or kidnappings. The machine was built for the goverment, and they were only interested in terrorist actions. So Harold decides to "make justice with his own hands" to prevent this other crimes.
But he's handicap of one leg, so he needs someone trained to be "in the field". So he "recruits" a former CIA agent who's been presumed dead, John Reese. But Jonh in the beginning wasn't into it, but then he says yes.
Their actions became notice by one of the NYPD detectives (because there are some killing involve), and she makes her priority find and catch the "Man in the Suit" - that's what she calls John.
And you ask me, how does that machine work? Well, the machine was programmed to give a code that is related to a social security number, and then Harold finds to whom that number belongs and then the action begins.
It's a must see!!!
Have a nice weekend everyone!!
