"Blindspot" review by Suzanne 9/10/15
Premieres September 21, Mondays 10/9c on NBC

When I first heard the description of this show (see below), I thought it sounded a bit like a cross between the old FOX show "John Doe" (where a man wakes up, naked, with no memory) and several other shows, including "Blacklist."  I thought maybe it was a scifi show, but it's really just a regular action drama. Not that there's anything wrong with that!

It's a very good action drama. Jaime Alexander, who we've seen in many great TV shows and movies, plays a "Jane Doe" who crawls naked out of a duffel bag in the middle of Times Square. She's covered in tattoos and has no memory of who she is...or anything else.

The FBI is called because a man's name is tattooed on her back - FBI agent Kurt Fuller (Sullivan Stapleton).  They figure out that the tattoos on her body are clues to crimes. Gradually, they figure out that she has specialized training, too, so she can help them track down the crimes and fight the bad guys. In the pilot, she has a short memory flash of training, learning how to shoot. We also know that the guy who trained her is lurking around.

There's good chemistry between the two leads, and they're both convincing in their roles. Marianne Jean-Baptiste plays the woman in charge of this FBI group (she's always good, like she was on "Without a Trace.").  The plot moves along in an exciting way. The show was co-created by Greg Berlanti, who has made a lot of good shows like Everwood, Arrow and The Flash. The other creator is Martin Gero, who has written for "Stargate Atlantis" and a lot of good movies.

This is definitely one you should check out! I think it's a keeper. It will be interesting to see who this woman really is and why she has these tattoos and can't remember anything.


A beautiful woman, with no memories of her past, is found naked in Times Square with her body fully covered in intricate tattoos. Her discovery sets off a vast and complex mystery that immediately ignites the attention of the FBI, who begin to follow the road map on her body to reveal a larger conspiracy of crime while bringing her closer to discovering the truth about her identity.
The cast includes Jaimie Alexander (“Thor: The Dark World,” “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”), Sullivan Stapleton (“300: Rise of an Empire,” “Strike Back”), Marianne Jean-Baptiste (“Broadchurch,” “Without a Trace”), Rob Brown (“Treme”), Audrey Esparza (“Black Box”), Ukweli Roach (“The Royals”) and Ashley Johnson (“Much Ado About Nothing”). 
Writer Martin Gero (“Bored to Death,” “L.A. Complex”) serves as executive producer along with Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Mysteries of Laura,” “The Flash”), Sarah Schechter (“The Mysteries of Laura,” “The Flash”), Mark Pellington (“Cold Case”) and Marcos Siega (“The Following”). Pellington directed the pilot episode.

“Blindspot” is a production of Warner Bros. Television and Berlanti Productions.
