Blindspot Review: “We Fight Death on Thick Lone Waters”

It’s been a few weeks since my last review of Blindspot, but I’m back now and ready to jump back in. There have been some big developments on the show as of late, so let’s take a look at the new episode, "We Fight Death on Thick Lone Waters." The episode opens with the team mid-mission. With this mission, we get a brief pairing between Reade and Zapata (a usual team) and Nas and Patterson (a newer team), and it’s interesting to be able to see these relationships evolving in such major ways. One of Blindspot‘s strengths has always been the way that it develops its characters and cultivates these relationships, and that strength has become even more obvious this season. As I’ve mentioned before, a lot of this reasoning has to do with the addition of Archie Panjabi’s Nas, but it’s truly a full cast affair. READ MORE...

Blindspot Season 2 Episode 8 Review: Do Not Slack, the Featherweight Wins

Blindspot likes to spend a few episodes taking stylistic chances. Blindspot Season 2 Episode 8 is one of those episodes, and it's really up to you whether its multiple points of view worked or not. Once that device passes it has several scenes that are going to come back and bite these characters in the ass. "We Fight Death On Thick Lone Waters" (previously known as "Do Not Slack, The Featherweight Wins") starts with a gangbusters idea: Jane and Weller have gone missing while undercover trying to capture an arms dealer, and the team is desperate to get them back at any cost. ...Read More...   //

Blindspot Resolves Eleven Myths Review (Season 2, Episode 6)

It was quite an intense episode of Blindspot last night with the FBI office under siege by a super assassin known only as the Acadian, who was believed to be a myth at least according to Naz. But how likely are we to believe her? Well, as the episode played out, it was clear that Naz was wrong about the assassin especially as he took down the building, nearly floor by floor. First he took out the security guards on the holding room level and then set up a sulfur-filled bomb in of all things a water cooler. ...Read More... //

Blindspot Her Spys Harmed Review (Season 2, Episode 5)

What happens in Bulgaria, stays in Bulgaria. At least thats the hope for viewers of Blindspot , right? Or maybe I am alone in that thought. After watching last nights episode, I will be amazed if other viewers dont have feel the same as me. What just happened?!! ...Read More... //

Blindspot Season 2 Episode 6 Review: Her Spy's Mind

Blindspot has been a generally fantastic show since it premiered 13 months ago, but Blindspot Season 2 Episode 6 is an honest head-scratcher. "Her Spy's Mind" feels like what the series thinks it needs to do rather than what it actually should do to keep its place as one of TV's best dramas. ...Read More...   //

Blindspot Review: The Mob and The Mother

How many members of the Irish Mob does it take to kill one former mob leader? And how many times can Kurt Weller's ex-girlfriend turned mother of his child be a pain in the behind? Those are the two primary issues at the heart of Blindspot Season 2 Episode 5 . "Condone Untidiest Thefts" feels like an effort to get Allison Knight back into the action. It's very convenient that she happens to be friends with the sister of the team's prime suspect Patrick O'Malley and that he'll only talk to her. Plus, when she tells Weller beforehand that it will be fine, that's TV's universal sign that things will not be fine. ...Read More...   //

Blindspot Review: Dressing Up for the Hunt

One of my favorite episodes of Blindspot last season involved the team dressing up to go undercover at a party, so the preview pictures for this week’s episode got me pretty excited. Let’s see how things shaped up in this week’s episode, "If Beth." The episode opens with Roman and Jane/Remi/Alice (what should we call her at this point?) reconnecting as he continues his effort at turning her back into the person that she was before the events of the series. The tug-and-pull between brother and sister has been incredibly interesting to watch play out over the past few episodes, and it’s giving Jane’s character development an entirely different side to explore. The unique thing that Blindspot gives us that few other series are narratively able to do is a character that completely develops on-screen. She had a history before the series, sure, but her memory loss has created a new person that knows no more about herself than we know about her. The show really doesn’t get enough credit for its use of character development in this way, and it’s been awesome getting to explore it for nearly thirty episodes. Adding Roman and Shepherd into the mix is a new wrench in that development, but it’s been just as intriguing (if not moreso) than what came before. READ MORE...

Blindspot Season 2 Episode 4 Review: If Beth

It feels like it's going to become a thing now for the Blindspot characters to have some excuse to dress up every season. While Blindspot Season 3 Episode 4 even references the first time that happened during Blindspot Season 1 Episode 9 , "If Beth," it's not as strong of an episode, no matter how fun it is to look at Jaimie Alexander and Sullivan Stapleton in formal wear. The main plot line of a murderous assassin who winds up being a burned CIA operative has the requisite amount of plot twists but it feels as if it takes too long to get to them. The entire museum gala sequence borders on making the FBI team look dumb with how Elizabeth Gubara is able to repeatedly stay multiple steps ahead of them and escape even as they're supposed to be locking down the building.   Read More...   //

Blindspot Season 2 Episode 3 Review: Hero Fears Imminent Rot

So far the second season of Blindspot has been all about the characters dealing with the new way the world looks after the revelations at the end of Season 1. Jane's learned her real identity, Weller's coping with his father being a murderer, the rest of the team is back to not trusting Jane and the shadowy government forces are now represented by Nas Kamal. Blindspot Season 2 Episode 3 is continuing along those lines, but it's also finally starting to move away from that as a focus and back into the actual investigating of cases.  Read More...   //

Blindspot: Jane and Kurt Try To Bury The Hatchet

  Blindspot 's decision to reveal a bunch of critical information in last week's strong season premiere continues to pay dividends. "Heave Fiery Knot," the show's first episode in its new 8 p.m. Wednesday time slot, didn't offer up as many "big" answers as last week, but instead deftly portrayed the ...Read More... //
