I watch a lot of TV. Probably more than anyone should ever watch. I currently am watching over 70 shows ( I know it’s crazy), but that doesn’t stop me from adding a list of 20 or more new shows that will be premiering in the next few weeks. One of the benefits that comes with watching as much TV as I do, is you get to notice trends or become very picky about what you spend your time watching.
When I was going through NBC’s Fall Line Up there were a few shows that automatically jumped out at me. The Carmichael Show is filled with laughter and one liners for days. Best Time Ever is a pure hour of Neil Patrick Harris, a man who can do no wrong! And let’s not forget the return of Heroes leaving fanatic fans of the show chomping ng at the bit with every teaser released.
But these are not the only shows that are due to premier with NBC’s Fall Line Up. The rest of the shows, at first seemed a little repetitive. I mean how many crime or doctor shows can one person stomach? Even with that thought going through my head, I still decided to give Blindspot a chance. I am a sucker for crime shows and especially ones from NBC. Grimm and The Mysteries of Laura are two of my all-time FAVORITES! And now I can add Blindspot to that list.
Blindspot airs Mondays on NBC 10PM ET. The show takes off quickly, which keeps you on the edge of your seat. Not to mention, viewers are instantly drawn in to the plot. Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander) is a young woman who has been dumped in the middle of Time Square with no memories and her body a canvas for tattoos. FBI Agent, Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) takes on the case, trying to find answers that might explain who she is and why this is happening. The other big question being why does Jane Doe have his name tattooed on her back?
Slowly pieces fit together like a giant puzzle (I LOVE PUZZLES) as we only scratch the surface of what is going on. The team behind Blindspot has taken what people love about crime shows and merged it with their own amazing spin. Even though the plot and new take on crime shows, leaves this viewer wanting more. It is the acting of Jaimie Alexander that sealed the deal. The raw emotions that filter through her eyes as she tries to figure out who she is, left me unable to turn away. Blindspot had its thrills and drama, but where the show shines is in the acting and character development.
Blindspot has just earned a spot on my MUST WATCH list. One hour is not enough time and as soon as you watch it you will understand. I can’t wait to see where this all leads and where the other puzzle pieces lead. Join me and tune in to catch Blindspot, Mondays at 10 PM ET on NBC.
