RIP Michael Clarke Duncan. I was blessed to see you in The Finder.

Any Bat-fans not watching Person of Interest are missing an amazing alternate-universe retelling of the Batman mythos. It's set entirely in the real world, and the villains are far from the Clayface/Killer Croc variety, but the parallels are unmistakable. Reese is Batman and Finch is Bruce Wayne, separated into two distinct people. Zoe is Catwoman, a semi-trustworthy alley. Carter is Renee Montoya/Commissioner Gordon, the cop who is reluctantly drawn into the mystery of this anonymous vigilante. Fucso is Harvey Bullock. As the first season went on, it became clear that Reese was accumulating a varied rogue's gallery of villains. In Batman, the cops traced reports of "a guy in a cowl and cape." In Person of Interest, Carter is haunted by "a tall guy in a suit." John Reese is the Dark Knight, as envisioned by JJ Abrams.
