First and Foremoremost let me start by saying that this TV show and more importantly the writers have created nothing short of a master stroke in what could easily be argued as the freshest most original TV concepts in the past twenty five years, and my right to say that comes with being alive for all of that time and then some. However, the writers of the show have suddenly (and without just cause in my opinion) committed a greivious error with the two most recent episodes 13 and 14 if i remember correctly. As point of reference if I have the numbers wrong Im refering to the two episodes aired right before the posting of this review. As a writer myself I know that intrigue and suspense can only be maintained if the choice/consequence remains a steady supply of very carefully crafted bell curves that build suspense with each episode and give JUST enough information that the audience HAS to return every monday night with bated breath ready to see what happens. In my humble opinion they have fallen victim to the success of their very creation and choices made about core plot pieces now present a dillema Id be very surprised if they manage to write themselves out of the corner they have backed into... and that only happens when you force integral characters to make choices that have absolute consequences. Twice now they have forced characters to draw lines in something other than sand - because no amount of waves are just going to wash them away. First: Im expected to believe that the guy that shows Jane a video file of herself in the past talking to her future self, a man she almost married, doesnt know enough about her nature to calm her fears the moment she decides she cant trust him? You also expect me to believe that Janes secret organization is capable of leading the entire New York field office and wellers team around by the nose, but aren't smart enough to ensure that theres no way they get caught DRIVING THE HEAD OF THE CIA'S CAR ON A PUBLIC HIGHWAY WITH A PERFECT SCREEN CAPTURE OF OSCARS FACE BEHIND THE WHEEL AT NIGHT? For Special Forces operators those are blunders that simply wouldnt take place. Theres either something really big about to happen that turns the entire thing on its axis and builds suspense out of nowhere or they have left two major holes in the plot that have the potential to tank the entire series before it gets off the ground and into a plausibly believable second season? BLINDSPOT is way too popular not to have the momentum to guaranbtee a second season but without keeping the writers at the top of their game they will have created a show that falls victim to complacency far too early,,, This is exactly what happened to Burn Notice. The writers did a masterful job with the first two seasons and then used the momentum for the last three, and basically sat back and did the bare minimum to keep it alive for every episode that followed right up to the end. BLINDSPOT is simply too unique to let the same thing happen here and I hope with all my heart that theres some detail i missed somewhere or has been omitted to keep the suspense curve building that we havent seen yet... but Ive got the really sick feeling thats not the case. The moral here is: when you have something this amazing come along YOU NEVER EVER EMPLOY character ultimatums unless theres no other choice. And they have done it twice before the first season even ends. Written right this show could easily surpass NCIS (all of them) and 24 combined. If they bother to work for it -- but they have to want to -- and as of this moment i think they have lost sight of THE rule of masterful television writing. When your concept is this compelling you outline EVERYTHING major so things like this don't happen. With my rant concluded I must admit that they cast everyone perfectly right down to the dying dad to the confused nephew. The chemistry between Kurt and Jane is breathtaking, and if they string out the tension just right they could milk that whenever they need a boost.
...and im sorry - getting a trident tattoo when you aren't actually a seal is disrespectful to the SEAL community. She should not have rung that bell. The Taylor Shaw they created would never give up. They could have easily pulled her aside at the end of training before going operational and offered her a chance at orion. Im nitpicking here, but its a detail that should have been corrected. If your going to make a character a badass do it right or dont do it at all. Thats just my two cents, and I never write reviews for ANYTHING... but this show deserved my time. If you havent watched it do so. For as scared as I am that they are going to tank the series, every episode up to 13 is collectively the best television I have ever watched.
Sullivan Stapleton was a huge draw for me towards Blindspot. Yes, I admit I’m a sucker for a hot man with soulful eyes and tight buns. The show also appealed because of the mystery surrounding Jane Doe’s tattoos. Jaimie Alexander has never been my favorite actress but I do think she has improved greatly from her Kyle XY days. The scene in Times Square where she emerges from a bag, naked covered in tattoos was striking. I felt she did a good job playing an amnesiac thrown into a scary, unpredictable situation.
The first episode featured a fast-paced story line. While I enjoyed the fact that things were happening at a breakneck pace it didn’t leave a lot of time for character building outside of Stapleton’s FBI Agent Kurt Weller and Alexander’s Jane Doe. One of my favorite characters and the one that brought some levity to the seriousness was Ashley Johnson’s, Patterson. However, I felt the dialogue given to Rob Brown’s “Reade” and Audrey Esparza’s “Zapata” was underwhelming and could have been better. I do hope that these characters are given more to work with in the future.
Overall, I really enjoyed this hour of television. The harrowing mystery of the hour was solved while opening up a can of worms at the end promising viewers more to come. I love shows that leave me with questions and this one absolutely does that. I will definitely be back for episode two.
The Drones are coming, The Drones are coming. Drones are a hot topic right now so I’m not surprised this episode of Blindspot features a drone pilot gone rogue. What does surprise me is how many times Jane is seeing and remembering the bearded killer who it appeared drugged and tattooed her with her consent in a memory from the end of the previous episode. I digress, let me rewind a little bit…
Patterson, the talented Ashley Johnson, and resident nerd figures out another of Jane’s tattoos. This leads the team to the above mentioned Drone pilot. Go Patterson! While the investigation into the tattoo and pilot unfold we do get a better glimpse of emotion from the main characters. I was very surprised to discover that Weller, Sullivan Stapleton’s character believes he may actually know Jane from his past. It was also nice to see an emotional side of Stapleton since I’ve rarely seen that side of him before. I am anxious to see this string unravel especially considering the tidbits we learned at the end.
I still felt that some dialogue didn’t flow as well as it could. For instance, Weller says, “Jane took his car” to which Reade responds, “Can she even drive?” Well duh?! Weller wouldn’t need the GPS on the car if not. It was an eye-rolling moment for me. A little moment like this pulls me out of a show. I love my drama and action. Blindspot has both I just feel like it has some kinks to iron out. I will be tuning in for episode three :)

As we learned more and more about Jane Doe - and Gero and his writing team weren't shy about doling out answers - the show got more and more intense (and when you start out with a suspected bomb in a duffle bag in a cleared out Times Square turning out to an amnesiac woman with fresh tattoos over her entire body - let alone learn in the pilot that she was a Navy SEAL and speaks Chinese) you're starting from a pretty intense place.
Years working on the Stargate franchise have given Gero a lot of experience in playing with tropes of a given genre and having fun while doing it, so it's no surprise that Blindspot works so well.
Now that we're into season 2, the pace hasn't slackened, either.
Unlike a lot of TVonDVD sets of late (I'm looking at YOU, Warner Home Video, with your DC TV shows not getting a single commentary between them this year - if Blindspot hadn't had a commentary track I'd be really pissed at you right now!), Blindspot has a killer commentary track on the first ep and a host of other bonus features (the only real letdown was the strikingly unfunny Gag Reel...).
