It always takes some time for new shows to develop into something that one wants to watch. After all, Netflix has presented a study about it, in terms of how many episodes you need to watch of each show to get hooked. Well, Blindspot is one of those that need less than others. The premise is good, the mystery is compelling, but not overwhelming. There is a visually attractive cluetrain in the tattoos (much like what it was with Prison Break´s Michael Scofield), and enough action scenes as to become a good option.
The plot goes like this: 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.
What this synopsis does not say is that this Jane Doe discovers she kicks ass. She is tough, knows martial arts, shoots like a sniper, and speaks Chinese.
The pilot gave us some big questions: Who is Jane Doe – is she an asset or enemy? Who wiped her memory? And who is behind the tattoos? And we started to unveil the tip of the iceberg of the answers.
There are a lot of shows this year that cover the subject of predicting crimes: Person of Interest, The Player, Minority Report. Well, Blindspot does it in an interesting way, and the show has made it into my watchlist. You should also give it a try. What do you think? Did you like Blindspot so far?
