The show seems to push the boundaries of believability on a couple levels. The most obvious is John "super soldier" Reese played by Jim Caviezel. They need to dial him back a little. The "machine" created by Finch is also a major plot device. It doesn't matter how it works, or that anything like it could exist. All that matters is it spits out a social security number for the duo to track down their person of the week. In that respect, I can't help seeing similarities between the show and something like the Ghost Whisperer. On the premise alone I don't know if it's enough for me to stick around, but coming from J.J. Abrams there's bound to be some kind of mega story arc. It was also a little disappointing that Taraji P. Henson didn't get more to do than look puzzled.
