Summary:

You are being watched.

The government has a secret system, a machine that spies on you every hour of every day.

I know because I built it.

Review:

As a long time fan of both James Bond and Person of Interest, you cannot imagine how utterly gobsmacked I was to discover this crossover. Bond and Q fit shockingly well into the roles of Harold Finch and John Reese, their respective quirks and histories lining up so naturally that I'm ashamed of myself for never having thought of it before.

dhampir72 revamps the Person of Interest pilot quite thoroughly within the James Bond universe, bending some elements of the film canon to suit the needs of James' version of John Reese's backstory. Even the most casual fan of the show will recognize dialogue taken straight from the pilot, but dhampir72 does occasionally rearrange and recreate scenes to keep it from being too close a copy. Elements of later seasons of the show are combined with locations and characters from the James Bond canon in a well blended mix that rewards those who have watched the show, though no knowledge of it is required to understand the story.

Included is wyomingnot's video, a fanvid set within the crossover universe.
