By keeping this phrase as the title, Jonathan Nolan created a TV Serial which was originally aired on CBS from September 22, 2011 to June 21, 2016.

The basic concept of the TV Series will remind you Tom Cruise starrer Hollywood movie Minority Report!

The series got popular and received mostly positive reviews from the critics and audience altogether and it was renewed for a total of 5 seasons.

List Of Episodes – Season 1 (2011-2012)

The pilot episode of the first season was directed by Jonathan Nolan himself, following by various directors.

The first season came with the concept of a software known as The Machine. The machine can be better referred as a modern surveillance system with artificial intelligence. It is able to accurately monitor and analyse the security footage and communication around the world to accurately predict the crime!

The machine is developed by mysterious reclusive billionaire computer programmer named Harold Finch. He leaves a backdoor into the system so he can use it to know about the crime before it happens. However, to prevent misuse of the backdoor if found by someone else, he put a limitation there. The backdoor reveals just the Social security number of the person(s) associated with the crime. It doesn’t tell whether he/she is a criminal or a victim!

How he is planning to use the backdoor and how the things turned out is explored in the first season.

Here is the list of episodes of the first season.
