Blindspot Review: A Must Watch NBC Series
The camera rolls up over a silky, tattooed body and exposes a bare female carcass of “Jane Doe,” a character who can’t remember her name, and wakes up to find herself zipped in a duffel bag labeled “Call the FBI,” in New York’s Times Square, naked and freshly tattooed. (via Collider)
Yes, that is how by assembling curiosity and sensualism the very first scene of “Blindspot” has floored the viewers.
“Blindspot” eventuates to be a must-watch show for the audience with a sublime taste. The show has given its first stroke with the electrifying pilot episode. The episode has manifested a thrill, which proves to be quite evoking for the audience to sit and watch the entire series though producer Greg Berlanti induces derivative and predictable elements into the show like “The Bourne Identity”, “Memento”, or “Prison Break”, where the protagonist has been affected with a “chemically induced state of permanent amnesia.”
This NBC conspiracy drama unfolds the magnetizing plot where the lady is covered with diverse tattoos that showcased the name of an FBI agent “Kurt Weller” who was immediately summoned into the case just when Jane is captured by the cops. Interestingly Jane does not forget her lethal skill as she fend off two would-be attackers but she doesn’t remember what frames her skill.
Sullivan Stapleton of “Strike Back” is essaying the role of Weller, wearing a sandpaper beard and Jaimie Alexander, famous for “Thor”, is rendering “Jane Doe” on the screen.
Yahoo TV reports that aside from Jane’s mysterious character that writer Martin Gero of “The L.A. Complex” created, he lets the tattoos pivot the course of the plot and exhibited an atlas of atrocities that logically lead the audience toward a criminal conspiracy. The biggest clue is a Navy SEAL emblem lurking beneath all that ink that may justifies Jane’s defensive expertise.
Alexander is able to make us empathize with Jane’s emotional upheaval and being a solid athlete with a background in wrestling and martial arts, really comes alive in these scenes.
The pilot intensifies about the expedition of Weller and Doe to find Chang-Yung-I, a Chinese terrorist. But the audience was expecting to perceive a blooming romance between the FBI agent and his charge, sadly nothing of that sort happens.
In 13 one hour -long episodes, the creators perhaps will try to incorporate the doubt of “why would anyone do this?” into the storyline to let the audience wonder why and who masterminds a terrorist plot and ink a cryptic clue, dated and in Chinese, behind some woman’s ear.
The pilot burns overtly quick without letting to feel any contemplative moment or inner turmoil.
“Blindspot” could be if not a revolutionary one, but a fun escapade in the weeks ahead. “Blindspot” airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on NBC.
