1x02 Episode 2

Horrible Histories
4x11 Episode 11

Person of Interest
1x01 Pilot
So good it prompted US network CBS to move perenially-popular CSI out of its time slot for the first time in a decade, Person of Interest is a crime series with a difference: they're trying to prevent crimes, not solve them. It's always tough to judge a show from its pilot -- this could become just case-of-the-week filler, with the danger of becoming po-faced about it; but there's enough promise to keep going. And considering the people behind Lost are involved, there's a remarkable lack of hints at A Big Story. Not even a season arc, never mind a take-over-the-whole-show one. Maybe that's all to come.
