A beautiful woman is found naked in Times Square, covered in fresh tattoos and with no idea who she is. So why is FBI Agent Kurt Weller's name on her back?

Really enjoy it, a new take on the police procedural. The tattoos themselves are a spectacularly original plot twist, as is the main character's - well, no spoiler's. Watch and see, you might like it! :)

Going on the pilot episode.. it looks to be a mix of the Jason Bourne films and Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. It was pretty
good from the start to finish of the episode with action throughout that kept me entertained through the hour. It's defo
a series I will be watching and keeping an eye on for future seasons, you'll like this show if your into the assassin/agent/fbi/cop
genre of tv shows OR films.

Season 1: 8/10 (Season 1 was great, loads of plot twists, action, fight scenes with a great story to back it up).
Season 2:

Normally, I don't review TV shows this early on; however, I can see all of the flaws in Blindspot. Mistake #1: the writers provided inklings of a romance between Weller and Jane way too early. A trained, hardened FBI agent wouldn't be so empathetic so soon. Mistake #2: the writers introduced her possible identity too soon, which should have been a mid-season plot point where the viewers would have to wait until after Christmas to find out the truth, and she shouldn't be the missing girl so as to keep the viewers guessing. Mistake #3: the mystery shooting instructor should've stayed in "flashback" form until near the end of season 1. His presence in the "real world" happened too soon. This is a TV show, not a movie or miniseries, take your time. Mistake #4: Jane goes in and out of little girl and bad ass too much for either to be believable. Mistake #5: Jane going out in the field so soon doesn't seem like something that is realistic. Now, being hooked up via camera from a guarded room inside FBI HQ makes more sense while they try and ascertain her identity. They know she had a Navy Seal tattoo but don't call the Navy?! That's odd. As an aside, I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but over the past few years, there has been an overall shift in TV writing. I think the more experienced writers have either retired or gotten fired. NBC needs a hit, and poor writing/storytelling is not going to help revive their network (new or younger doesn't always equal better). I give this show 2 1/2 seasons, at most, before it is cancelled. This could've been a hit if the writers were better at crafting a story.

Yes! Finally a show that keeps me on the edge of my seat! It is dynamic, filled with mystery. I'm giving this 5/5 for now, can't wait to see what happens next in this show! ;)

I really liked this... great acting from the lead actress, I completely believed her fear and strength. I hope this does well in the ratings because it looks like a keeper!

They make it seem like there's progress, but is there any, really? Maybe I'm just getting impatient. I like the show and it's a great cast. I'll work on my patience.

At first glance the idea is excellent alas the execution is terrible. The acting seemed forced and their every spoken word was too convenient and scenes over dramaticized. That isnt necessarily a bad thing and will probably smooth out eventually as the series continues. Hopefully; if they get a better writer. The thing that I found really annoying was the camera. It seems the director felt it necessary to shoot over actors shoulders and always with tight shots of peoples faces. The camera was shaky a times and its obvious that they were probably only using one camera and walking around with it moving it quickly between the people who were speaking. Hopefully the show will improve; i for one shall be giving it until the 3rd episode to improve before calling it quits.

Pilot was pure procedural.( Detective1)" we discovered this thing " (Detective 2) explains to the audience the repercussions of discovering said thing ".. Hey look the tattoo lady is also an enigma and super special. My roommate noted that the show had much in the way as to emulate directly " John Doe " a 2002-2003 procedural involving a man with lost memory searching for himself via the help of FBI, cops etc... After reading a few summaries he is spot on. This show will go the route of Blacklist etc.. with some off episodes and some things that highlight its main attractive actress. I predict a 3 or 4 season run then no one will care because it will be the same as all the other tripe.
