Tv Season Info

In the premiere season of this drama, the FBI find an unidentified woman (Jaimie Alexander) who has amnesia and is covered with tattoos, including a large tattoo featuring one their names: Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton). They soon realize that these tattoos are connected to crimes to be solved. They call the woman Jane Doe, and she begins to work with Kurt's FBI team as a consultant, under the supervision of assistant director Bethany Mayfair (Marianne Jean-Baptiste). Team member Edgar Reade (Rob Brown) is particularly uneasy about working with Jane, because he doesn't think they can trust her. Before long, Jane's contacted by someone from her previous life: a mysterious man named Oscar (François Arnaud), who slowly reveals bits of info about her past to her.

Critic Reviews for Blindspot Season 1

All Critics (62) | Top Critics (29)

If Blindspot star Jaimie Alexander... can persuade her Marvel Universe fans to join her for the NBC police procedural, the network, also responsible for similarly framed The Blacklist, has a promising new fall TV series on its hands.

The warning signs of future stupidity are everywhere. The show's mythology is a pair of cement boots.

Top Critic

Despite [its] misgivings, Blindspot is worth a first and a second look.

Top Critic

Based on its completely riveting pilot, Blindspot might have earned four stars if there were any way to judge what it was going to be.

Sep 9, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Obviously, this is silly on a dozen levels, but Blindspot plays it depressingly straight.

Sep 21, 2015 | Full Review…

Gotta say, it gets your attention.

Sep 21, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The premise is great, but the execution is even better.

Mar 1, 2019 | Full Review…

The show's urgent opening few minutes quickly pull you in with a kind of dumb yet instantly intriguing central premise, wherein a dazed and naked young woman climbs out of an unattended duffel bag in the middle of Times Square.

Dec 13, 2017 | Full Review…

It clomps along from cliche to exposition dump. Sometimes they labour a point so obvious, you wonder if they think we are complete idiots.

Apr 26, 2017 | Full Review…

If you can look past some of the show's inherent silliness, NBC's Blindspot presents a good mystery and some fun action sequences.

Sep 17, 2015 | Rating: 7.3/10 | Full Review…

Beneath its loud insistence on its own urgency, Blindspot is a complete blank.

Sep 16, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Alexander is the main reason to check out Blindspot - she nails the essential contradiction of her amnesiac badass heroine, shifting between fear and ferocity with impressive ease.

Audience Reviews for Blindspot: Season 1

  • Aug 30, 2019
    I have started to watch it three times, the best effort is the middle of episode 5. It was grueling. Dialog so very bad makes it unwatchable which is sad because the lead is pretty and has striking eyes. Why did it last for 4 seasons? Did they murder the screenwriter in a most brutal fashion and replaced him/her with half decent student of English? I will never know

    The plot is quite interesting unfortunately this series comes along with characters such as the FBI expert (I can't recall her name), who happens to be an expert about everything and then she comes along a boyfriend which turns out to be another poorly written character.

    Good series though it should really pay some kind of credit to the early 2000s show John Doe, with a touch of Prison Break.

    SILLIEST plot ever. How can anyone take this seriously?
  • Dec 06, 2017
    I have just come across this series on DVD and have binged watched it over a few nights. I must admit my initial reaction was that the actors played one dimensional roles (everyone was so angry all the time), the script was typically american (cliche ridden, basic language levels despite some of the characters having more than minimal intelligence, and every episode having a shoot-out). So what kept me in the show? The narrative and the nuancing of complexity ... though again some revelations were dependant on convenience. I didn't see the death of Carter or Reid, coming (that was a bonus). Only two characters and their stories have actually engaged me; firstly, Patterson. Her character is delivered with wonderful nuance. Ashley seems to inhabit this character and this facilitates a connection and latterly Jane Doe, very early on the seed for doubt about her identity was planted (the isotope results) and that doubt was only reinforced as the season progressed. I did like the way Jamie progressed her character so that at the end of the season I was starting to connect with her struggle to deal with her own internal and external conflicts. As for the rest, I only hope they do better in season two and I get to find them believable as people. As I said a generally well driven narrative was the strength of season and was they reason I stayed with the show. Now for season 2.

    I think this TV show is great i rate it 5 stars
  • Oct 27, 2017
    The basic idea of "Blindspot" is this: tattoos are on every inch of cute and skinny and usually teary Jane Doe's body. They were put on her all at once (with no apparent redness or pain) before the show began are figured out as clues that are then used to solve crimes that haven't even happened yet. The 007 feel and Jane Doe's impressive fighting skills aren't enough. Ugh.

    best series on TV. excellent acting and great plot
  • Feb 07, 2017
    One step above Quantico and if wasn't for Ashley Johnsons' character of Pattison and her magic computer this lot couldn't solve a jigsaw between them!! The effort they make to make us endear to the characters fails miserably and if they were all put in cell and you threw away the key I doubt that they would be missed. no a 2nd season due and more crap of the ilk.

    By far one of the best shows I have watched! I am hooked!!! If you have not watched this, you MUST!!
