A naked woman whose body is covered in tattoos is found stuffed in a duffle bag in the middle of Times Square. To add insult to injury she’s suffering from total amnesia and it’s your job to figure out who she is, where she comes from and why your name is tattooed across her back.
Catch a glimpse into the world of Sullivan Stapleton’s latest character Agent Kurt Weller along with the talented ensemble of co-stars Marianne Jean-Baptiste (Mayfair), Ashely Johnson (Patterson), Rob Brown (Reed) and Audrey Esparza (Zapata) from the all new hit series “Blindspot” on NBC.
It’s a bustling Time Square in New York when a beat cop discovers a large duffel bag left alone with a tag that read “Call The FBI”. Once the area is cleared the bomb squad enters the scene to inspect the bag only to discover a naked fully tattooed woman emerging from the duffle bag. “Blindspot” is NBC’s newest series hitting the fall season with a creative premise of a young woman whose mind had been erased and her entire body tattooed with markings of everything from seemingly random numbers and map coordinates to the name of a FBI agent Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton). It’s a puzzle within a puzzle first trying to determine who the young woman referred to as Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander) truly is and what the vastly unique markings across her body will reveal.
If you’re feeling a little Jason Bourne déjà vu that’s ok you’re not alone. The series has been promoted as the female Jason Bourne launching its lead actress Jaimie Alexander’s character into the world of special forces badass with a questionable past at best.
300: Rise of an Empire is the sequel that the innovative 300 didn’t really need. As with the original, it’s a tale loosely based in Greek history filmed with a cast of six-pack flaunting actors (and two supremely beautiful women) against a CG environment. What was once ground-breaking is now pretty much old hat and the story is dwarfed by the carnage to the point that it becomes Pythonesque.
When Strike Back (Cinemax, Fridays, 10/9C) premiered, it was a pleasant surprise: a smart, dark, funny, explosive action series that gave as much of a damn about its character as blowing stuff up real good. Now well into its second American season – and third season overall (you should find the first UK series because it’s also really, really good) – it continues to impress.
Following the jump, check out a clip from tomorrow night’s episode:
With Strike Back, HBO’s racier cable outlet steps away from its ‘Skinema’ nickname and moves into the realm of hard-edged action-adventure. The premise of new series [which premieres on Friday, August 12th at 10/9C] is as follows: when a resourceful international terrorist group plots an attack, a charismatic former U.S. Special Forces operative joins forces with a stealth British military unit to stop them.
