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
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
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.
