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?

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Blindspot appears to be following the trajectory I predicted during the premiere: the “tattoo clue crime of the week” is mostly a series of over-the-top action movie montages of running, hand-to-hand fights, machine guns, car chases, and shit blowing up. The crime is eventually solved by TV-logic detective work, meaning implausible clues, impossible technology and rapid-fire nonsensical solutions. The main reason to watch right now is its badass actors; the whole cast is sparkly and edgy by equal measure. It’s a shame that their characters appear so one-dimensional.
