"Using data siphoned off the U.S. intelligence agencies' threat matrix - information not related to terrorism, but rather violent crimes of a personal nature - during each episode, the former CIA agent (Caviezel) and his enigmatic partner (Emerson) identify a 'person of interest' and set about solving the mystery of the impending crime. Tapping into the world's Big Brother-like surveillance network, the shadowy duo knows that something bad is going to happen; it's their mission to discover what that event will be....and somehow prevent it."
The first season contains the following episodes:
"Cura Te Ipsum"
"Flesh and Blood"
"Many Happy Returns"
"No Good Deed"

Well as much as I hate to admit it, I can use the DVD copies. Not personally, but a friend of our families is a little more low tech. She still has a 4x3 TV, but does have cable and uses On Demand. She is a TV show lover, but never got into POI because they didn't have it On Demand. She doesn't have Blu-ray either.
I can have my Blu-rays, re-watch this FANTASTIC series (it's in my current top 5), loan the BDs to a different friend to catch up on missed episodes (because they weren't online she missed episodes that aired while she was still coming back to her dorm from a night class), and the DVDs to the above mentioned person. Plus I pre-ordered months ago. I'm snagging this for $48
I like this, whatever you can sell the DVD's for is going to be more than the added cost of putting them in the combo pack. Hopefully their absence doesn't alter the blu-ray set packaging too much. You can take the DVD's out of those True Blood packs and not even tell the difference.
I'm very excited for this release as this show was one of the best (if not thee best) new shows on TV. The only thing is that I hope that cover art isn't final. I understand Finch and Reese being on the cover as they're the two main characters but how can you have Carter and NOT Fusco. Both characters had fairly equal parts throughout the season.
Also, I agree with everyone else on not liking the included DVDs. I mean they're for MOST people just a waste of money and drive the MSRP unnecessarily high. I'm ok with a digital copy but not a bunch of DVDs. So as to make everyone happy I sort of wish they just had a non-combo pack version.
Will definitely be picking this up. 'Person of Interest' is already my second-favorite series currently on television (after 'Fringe', meaning it will likely soon be first), and it has plenty of replay value. A procedural hook that makes it easy to watch on an episode-by-episode basis, as well an several ongoing, intertwining storylines to keep one engaged from beginning to end.
I highly doubt the DVDs are raising the price. I know with the new HBO combo packs, the prices are $35 release week (same as the non combo releases).
I seriously don't see it raising the price at all. I think it would be the same price with or without the DVDs
I personally love that they have started including DVD for shows. I have friends and family that havnt upgraded to blu and this allows me to let them borrow the show if they want. Or watch it with them at their place without having to lug a blu ray player around. As long as they continue to not raise the price on these combo packs, I'm fine with them
This is about the only network show I watched on a regular basis last season. Love the whole concept of big brother watching your ass all the time. Caviezel and Emerson worked great together too! Thanks Warner!!!
Warner Brothers Please Use Plastic Cases & Not Cardboard Box. Its cheesy and cardboard doesnt hold up. Please Bluray fans comment also so WB does the right thing, especially with this many discs. Look how nice Hawaii Five O is.
Yikes, 10 discs, it'll probably be one of those foldout things. Show is awesome, but DVDs not really necessary. Do love it comes with digital copy, but it's that stupid ultraviolet which are almost totally useless.
Glad to see that I'm not the only one who has Person Of Interest rapidly rising to be their favorite TV show. I think I can safely say that it has become my current favorite TV show. That is saying something since there are a few series that I really like right now. But I digress.....
I appear to be a dissenter on the BD-DVD-UV issue. I am actually glad to be getting all of the options. While my laptop has a BD player, the rest of my family has DVD players in their laptops. So, the addition of DVDs makes sense for me in regards to flexibility of my family watching video. OTOH, I do understand the complaint by many on here if the BD-DVD-UV is the only option. Personally, I would like to see various options so people can buy the package of choice at the price that suits them. IIRC, some BD movies are sold in various packages of BD-DVD-UV, BD-UV, or DVD. I like when consumers have the freedom to choose which option fits their circumstances. As for me, I'm glad to see the "all of the above" option.
Lastly, I really am not running into too many problems with Ultraviolet. The videos I have watched via UV has pretty much been glitch free. I do think the studios have botched the rollout of the service. They have done a poor job, IMO, of informing the public at-large on how the system works and how to get started. For most people, it is a hassle to have to take the extra time to read, learn, and sign-up in multiple locations to get the system working. Once I went a head and did reading on how to set things up, it is coming together nicely. Now, my Vudu movies and tv shows are showing up in my UV library and vice versa. Oh one last criticism of UV, it seems to be taking them forever to implement the full system, i.e. the UV site still has not filled out the Devices section.
This was just not the best new show of 2011 on the networks but now one of the best shows on television. My personal favorite shows and I know this because it brought me back every week. Everyone I've recommended this show to now loves it as well.
For those talking about the extra cost. Blu is always a little more expensive then DVD. Both sets of this series seem a little on the hight side, but the cost difrence is $10. That seems to be about standard for TV sets. Getting the 2 extra features with the same price increase seems like a good deal.
Regardles of what anyone thinks abotu the combo packs, gettign 2 extra versions for what would be the same price diffrence between DVD and Blu-ray, a person cannot complain.
