With the help of special surveillance equipment, they work "outside the law" to get the right criminals behind bars.

More Trivia
  • The alias of the secretive John Reese is an homage to Batman's The Riddler (i.e. E. Nigma is made to sound like enigma) as Mr. Reese is made to sound like "mysteries".
  • Finch generally uses fairly identifiable bird-based or bird related aliases with the first name Harold (Harold Wren, Crane, Crow, Quail, Gull, Swift and Mr. Partridge) but has used non-bird…

    Finch generally uses fairly identifiable bird-based or bird related aliases with the first name Harold (Harold Wren, Crane, Crow, Quail, Gull, Swift and Mr. Partridge) but has used non-bird names including Arthur Bellenger, Thomas Paine, Dr. Tillman, Lucas Bennett, and Walt Trowbridge. The alias Norman Burdett could be considered bird-based (bird-ett). In Season 2, during John's interrogation, Finch's alias is "Howard French", which is not a bird name, although based on Reese's former profession and the likelihood of capture and torture, choosing phonetically similar aliases can be very helpful should the need to use them arise. In season 3, episode 21, "Beta," the grave site his fiancé visits has a name plate with the name Harold Martin. At first glance, this would not seem to be a bird related name, but it actually is. There are many species of Martin around the world, including a very common bird in North America, the Purple Martin, and another from South and Central America, the Gray-breasted Martin, and many others.

    It was in between the show's second and third seasons that Edward Snowden came forward with details on PRISM, a government program designed to spy on U.S. citizens in order to detect terrorist threats, which is very similar to the show's fictional "Machine" and how it operates. This similarity is later referenced in "Person of Interest" (2011) {Lethe (#3.11)}, where, at the end of the episode, PRISM is listed as a decoy of The Machine.
