Person of Interest – Sterling K. Brown Gets Personal With Detective Carter
How interested are you in Detective Carter’s home life, really? Person of Interest is a show about a machine that can predict violent crimes among ordinary citizens and that’s what it has been tremendously good at. I’ve never walked away from an episode and thought, “That was a really good character story.” At the best of times things are good when it comes to character development. Little snippets are fine so long as they are spread out and don’t bring down the main storyline involving the machine and Reese and Finch’s operation. So to hear we’re going to be meeting a love interest for one of the supporting characters and he’s going to be sticking around for a while? That leaves me more than a little worried.
Person of Interest has a simple, yet intriguing premise. I love a good character drama, but that’s not what this show is. To pretend it isn’t anything more than a fun way to spend an hour of your time – I could watch Reese beat the crap out of thugs all day and never get tired of it – is just ludicrous. I don’t care if the showrunners have this plan to reveal “a little more about Carter’s personal life, what makes her tick.” That’s not what I want from this show. Carter’s a great character and decently layered for what is basically a really slick procedural, but I’ve already met her son and don’t feel like meeting some guy she might have relations with. I don’t care if TVLine tells me Sterling K. Brown is playing him… wait a second. Sterling K. Brown??
Forget everything I’ve said. I am totally onboard for exploring Carter’s love life if it means Sterling K. Brown is the man she’s pursuing. And he’s going to be playing a narcotics detective? Even better. Brown will recur as Cal Breecher beginning in Episode 8. I’d like to see Carter try and hide her double life as one of Reese’s accomplices from her detective boyfriend. That should go over well.
