It doesn't matter if Finch is a bird or the geek who helped create the machine on the hit show "Person of Interest." I rather like both the bird and the fictional character. The fictional character Finch however does more than watch from his perch.
He and his cohorts help those in trouble and catch the bad guys in the process. Finch is rather a geeky business type of guy. Smart as a tack and just as fast with a keyboard like a superhero with their unique skills.
If you haven't seen "Person of Interest," it's no big deal. You may have seen the commercials for it.
