Blindspot TV Show Review, Season 3, Episode 6 - Jaimie Alexander’s Spiral Descent

x240 Ywc

I must say the storylines of Blindspot are quite creative.  Blindspot, Season 3, Episode 6 involves the use of a movie set, complete with actors, etc. as one of the backdrops of the action and a warehouse for the fighting parts of the show.  Once again, poor Jaimie Alexander’s Jane Doe character seems to be more of decorative feature i.e. like wall paper instead of the star actor.

Blindspot Season 3, Episode 6 revolves mostly around her husband and her brother.  If my focus on reviewing this TV show was not based on how Jaimie Alexander is being treated as the star,  I would rate this episode higher than I did.  But the main reason I’m watching this TV show is to gauge if the show centers around Jaimie Alexander as a female action star.  Even the comic relief actor has more lines in this episode than Jaimie Alexander.  I thought it was interesting how her husband and another FBI agent (still not Jaimie Alexander) were able to crack a safe and find key words with the comic relief actor providing most of the clues.

There are plenty of twists and turns to keep your interest; however, nothing that focuses on Jaimie Alexander’s character specifically except for the take on if she wants to meet a “relative” of hers.

However, all is not lost.  You have to wait for this but in this episode Jaimie Alexander shows off her fighting and defense skills when faced with enemies.  Even during her fight scenes in the TV show, I got the impression she could be an extra on the show, instead of the main star.  She was taking orders from her husband and was really always on the tail end of the action.  It was as if she had to ask permission from her husband where to stand when she performed her fights.

By the way, her brother is in this episode as  another side story, but his actions are now predictable; meaning, if he does anything for the good, you can believe that something sinister is behind it.  Nothing new here.

Since Jaimie Alexander’s role is an “extra” on her own TV show instead of the star --  the rating of the show goes down from last week. Based on a rating of 1 star to 5 stars with 5 stars being the best, I rate Blindspot, Season 3, Episode 6 -- two (2) stars.

Blindspot, Season 3, Episode 4 - Jaimie Alexander Out of the Shadows - A Ms. H TV Show Review

x240 od

 

 

The plot thickens in this episode -- which is a good thing since Jaimie Alexander came back in the spotlight. Could it be that during the fourth episode of the Season 3 of Blindspot the writers finally realized the show should center around Jaimie Alexander -- instead of the other characters. This show was like a breath of fresh air -- in that Jamie Alexander was no longer in the background.  Of course, this could change in the next episodes -- but for now, I was satisfied to sit back, relax and see Jamie Alexander be the lead character that she was meant to be.

 It was interesting to me how the writer incorporated Jaimie Alexander’s wedding in this episode. Throughout the actions of the show, you would see a video of the different characters offering Jaimie Alexander and her husband best wishes and advice on being a newlywed couple.  I think this was an excellent way to keep Jaimie Alexander front and center in the show. Regarding the other actions of the show -- the writers did an amazing job in keeping your attention focused on Jaimie Alexander.

It’s been quite a while since it was obvious to me that Jaimie Alexander was the star of the show. Amid the many characters, Jaimie Alexander was in most of the scenes in this episode. In addition, the story this time focused around her as well as her brother.  Even the criminal seems to be connected to her in some way -- even though how -- is still an enigma. I liked that in this episode Jaimie Alexander was not only front and center -- but she spoke up for herself. When one of the characters indicated that she was in some way tied with the criminal, she immediately spoke up to say she was not.  She gets a gold star for this since I believe that if something is said that is not to your liking, it is up to you to speak up and say something about it at the time -- of course if the setting is appropriate.

During this episode, I was expecting Jaimie Alexander to be pushed further in the background; however, I’m overjoyed that this episode did just the opposite.  As alluded to earlier in my review,  the storyline  revolved around her and even her brother made appearances. If the show continues in this vein, it may get another season.  However, for now, I’m taking each episode one by one. The flaw continues with Blindspot having way too many characters; however, this episode, in particular, was a step in the right direction!

 

On a scale of 1 to 5 stars with 5 stars being the best, I rate Bindspot, Season 3 episode 4 -- three (3) stars.

Blindspot Bloopers, TV Show Season 3, Episode 5

x240 0Dt

There are obvious bloopers that may or may not have been noticed by the director of Blindspot Season 3, Episode 5.  As I  watched the tv show Blindspot, I was not seriously looking for bloopers, misstatements or anything of the like.  It was as if there was a big sign on one of the scenes that read “Blooper Alert.”  In Season 3, Episode 5 of Blindspot I spotted only two bloopers; however, there could have been more.  I think these are the most glaring ones that could not be missed.

“Show Yourselves Out!” - First Blooper on Blindspot

There is a scene in Blindspot where it looks like the boss is scolding two other investigators about their secret research activities.  He is outraged they suspected one of the other high-profile executives of the atrocity she was being accused of.  Specifically one of the investigators determined that this particular female executive had logged in on his computer using his login information.  When faced with this information, he adamantly refused to believe it was true and screamed at the young ladies -- “Show yourselves out!”  He then ceremoniously turns around, opens the office door, and storms out of the room.  Meanwhile the young ladies continue to talk among themselves.  The blooper occurs when he commands them to show themselves out, but in-turn, he leaves instead.  The young ladies did not budge.  Shouldn’t he have just left the room instead without any parting words?  I’m not sure if this was an ad-lib, but clearly his actions did not correlate with what he ordered the investigators to do.

Toting a Bag of Sand - Second Blooper on Blindspot

I am taking literary license and calling this scene a blooper because of the precarious way Kurt Weller who is Jane Doe’s husband chose to carry an ill patient.  This scene develops after enemies found out the location of the mother and son that Jane Doe and Kurt Weller were protecting while the patient was in a hospital room.  The sick patient attempted to run out of the room alongside Kurt Weller; however, it was obvious she could not run fast enough.  At that point Kurt Weller decided to carry her.  He practically threw her over his shoulder. The manner in which he carried her was as if he was toting a load of sand. To make matter worse, the scene shows a close up of her derriere next to his face after he flung her over his shoulder.  In this scene, he should have taken the time to actually carry her instead of draping her over his shoulder like a bag of sand.

Wrap-Up

I watch Blindspot for the content rather than looking for bloopers.  I’m particularly interested in how Jane Doe is being treated in her role as an action star.  However, if bloopers pop up, I will not hesitate to share them with you.  The bloopers did not affect my rating of the show.   I rated the Blindspot, Season 3, Episode 5 -- 2 ¾ stars out of a possible 5 stars.  Suffice it to say  I’m still waiting for the show to improve enough to earn higher ratings.

Blindspot Season 3, Episode 3 -- A Ms. H TV Show Review - Have You Seen Jaimie Alexander?

x240 maz

 

Disjointed Plot

We are now up to Episode 3 of Season 3 of Blindspot and the plot thickens.  Well actually the plot changes in midstream. Based on Episode 2, I was under the impression that in Episode 3 the brother of Jaimie Alexander --the woman who is the tattooed "star of the show" would still be the main focus.  That way, the story could revolve around her.  But Alas! He is nowhere to be found until the end of the show.  Spoiler Alert: The show starts with a totally different crime scenario dealing with a lot of hacking done not only by unsavory personnel, but by two of the actors who used to be part of a team called the Three Blind Mice.

Star of the Show is Not Jaimie Alexander

If I had not seen the previous episodes of Season 3, I would think that this TV show  stars the blonde female consultant on the show.  She manages to be in just about every scene, with Jaimie Alexander being pushed again to the background. In fact, the complete episode seems to revolve around her instead of Jaimie Alexander.  With Blindspot, I guess everyone in the show will at some time come to be the lead.  It's no longer the tattooed woman show, but any of the other characters in the show as well.

Sparse Jaimie Alexander Appearances

Jaimie Alexander did have a few choice camera shots dealing with a fight and a car crash, but that's about it. Oh wait. Towards the end of the show when Jaimie Alexander is busy being a housewife, she does get a call from her brother with threats.

If I understand Blindspot correctly, the team will be doing their regular FBI jobs which may or may not be connected to the main story that should be centered around Jaimie Alexander. To me, this is a big fail mainly because the show is becoming more focused on everyone else except her.

Wait! A New Character is Introduced?

Now, looks like there is a new character who appears at the end of the show as a cliffhanger.  Hopefully, one day soon the writers of Blindspot will put Jaimie Alexander front and center of the show, instead of having her watch everyone else from the sidelines. I'm almost getting tired of waiting.

 

Ms. H's Rating Drops a Notch from Last Week's Episode

Based on a rating of 1 to 5 stars, with 5 stars being the best, I rate Blindspot 1 3/4 stars.

Blindspot Review: Jaimie Alexander Reclaims her Space on the Show - Season 3, Episode 5

x240 KXQ

Jaimie Alexander is Back

After several episodes, Season 3 of  Blindspot seemed to have found its rhythm by moving Jaimie Alexander’s Jane Doe character back in the spotlight.  I started watching Blindspot, Season 3, Episode 5 with reservations, not knowing what to expect relative to how her character would be presented. Well, this episode did not disappoint. But remember -- this could change.  Right off the bat, I could tell that Jaimie Alexander’s  character would be the focus, not only in the action scenes, but also in the developing storyline about someone who was at one time close to her. Just in case, you are following Blindspot and do not want spoilers, I will not divulge who that someone is.

Blindspot Storylines

I am losing count of the different storylines in Blindspot -- some are connected and some are not.  For example, with each episode, there is a cliffhanger that begs the question, what will happen next. Remember the episode where Roman, Jane Doe’s brother threatened the character playing her husband with information of what he did in Germany.  Well, I’m still waiting to find out what that was.  Looks like this lead was dropped and a whole different storyline started.  However, Blindspot redeemed itself with the last cliffhanger by identifying the contents in the envelope -- which was last seen as a cliffhanger in the previous episode.

Full Disclosure in Blindspot

There are plenty  twists and turns in the plot of  Blindspot; some that are considered moral, and some that are not.  Now that Jaimie Alexander has for now reclaimed her spot in being the center of the story, I can critique other events that are happening around her. There are a lot of secret investigations going on within this office, that may or may not be founded.  Looks like the  rule-book of Blindspot is to suspect everyone and believe no one.  As the storyline unfolded in this episode, there seems to be something amiss with a staff member that their colleagues have found out about.  I’m not a fan of this line of thought  but I guess to keep the storyline going, the writers have to think of something that may be interesting to the viewing audience.

Cliffhangers in Blindspot

One way to try to keep viewers’ interest  is to add a cliffhanger, which I alluded to previously.  Right on cue, Blindspot continues to deliver on ending the show with one.  However, this cliffhanger was more of a revelation known by Jane Doe’s husband and unknown to her.  Even though her memory has been wiped clean, it seems unbelievable that she would not want to see a long lost “relative” of hers -- especially if her husband  (unknowing to her) already has.  With that being said, there are other episodes to come so the anticipation is she will eventually find out, but knowing that he withheld this information from her is probably something she has to contend with.  In other words, the wedding vows of each include honoring each other.  The question is how can he honor his wife by not being truthful or withholding information from her?

Rating of Blindspot, Season 3, Episode 5

Based on a rating of 1 star to 5 stars, with 5 stars being the best, I rate Blindspot, Season 3, Episode 5, 2 ¾ stars.
