CBS's need to find new topics for crime procedurals seems to be leading them into some unintentionally interesting sci fi-ish territory lately. An untitled procedural There's a risk of this topic giving the public the impression that there's nothing scary or wrong with authorities tracking down criminals based on their DNA (brrr) but there's also the potential to delve into the ethical issues raised by the intersection of genetics and law enforcement. That's a topic I wish real sci fi series would tackle, and not in a fantastical/metaphorical way. And there's also the upcoming CBS series Person of Interest, with a premise that sounds like a real-life take on Minority Report, but with high tech standing in for psychics, starring Jim Caviezel and Michael Emerson. Persons of Interest: And once again, they're delving into an area where the lines between civil liberties and law enforcement are vague, especially since these guys are freelance vigilantes.
