Critic reviews for Pilot

Mixed in with all the tropes and TV clich├ęs, there is enough in the series to merit interest in seeing where it goes... The characters are charismatic, and the writing interesting enough to keep the viewer at least somewhat engaged.

In an exciting end-of-episode twist, one of Jane's tattoos - "81899Z" - is revealed to be a case file number... pertaining to Kurt's boss, Bethany Mayfair, who's gotten herself into some real legal trouble.

It's an interesting premise, and the symbols featured here give the series a bit of a sci-fi fantasy flair... But it's still a crime drama, and despite some predictable moments, it offers enough compelling plot lines to keep you watching.

The raw emotion Alexander puts into this role should easily earn her some nominations for best actress. Yes, she's THAT good.

Though entertaining, Blindspot's constant upswing is a bit exhausting. Jumping from Times Square to Chinatown to Brooklyn to the Statue of Liberty all in one episode does little to distract from the bad dialogue stringing it all together.

If you can look past some of the show's inherent silliness, NBC's Blindspot presents a good mystery and some fun action sequences in the first episode. Both Jaimie Alexander and Sullivan Stapleton turn in fine performances.
