Blindspot-Personal Secrets

Blindspot centers on an amnesiac woman who wakes up in a bag in Times Square, her entire body covered in mysterious tattoos. Throughout two seasons, Jane Doe aids the FBI in taking down terrorists, and they help her find a life again. The show is fast-paced, full of plot twists and complex missions. The characters are complex and relatable-a standout is Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton), the team leader with personal connections to Jane. Another interesting character is Ali Paterson (Ashley Johnson), the resident tech savant. The first season is amazing, unique, and emotional….and then the second season seems to have no direction whatsoever. Plot twists seem to appear out of nowhere and disappear just as quickly. The endgame, while inferrable, is murky and doesn’t inspire motivation to continue watching. Overall 8/10 for action, complex characters, and some genuinely good humor. Points lost for the lack of direction.
