Blindspot Pilot  
What did you think of Blindspot? I was really surprised at how fast paced and interesting it was. I was kind of counting on it falling flat but I find it very intriguing. I also think it is fun that Ashley Johnson (Crissy from Growing Pains) is on the show and was in the Avenger movie (small part). Jaimie Alexander being Lady Sithe in the Thor movies. So both from the Avengers World.

I have to tell you I already ship Kurt/Jane. I can't help it. Happened the moment she was trying to remember him by touching his hand and face. Then every time she'd open up to him and he'd look at her like he really wanted to help her but couldn't. I don't know if it is him or what but I was all about shipping when the episode was over.

[Semi-Spoiler (click to open)]I am intrigued that he seems to know why his name is on her back. I really hope they tell us in the next episode.

Also, the file number on Jane that relates to the "Captain". What is that about? Because it was the woman in charges name on that file which I had to look up in IMDB to realize but wow... interesting.

I don't know if I want it to remain interesting or not. So many shows and so little time.

I'm planning to watch it on Hulu because I love Jamie Alexander. I have so many shows to watch on Sunday, Monday and Wednesday nights that I have to watch some of them on Hulu. With the Hopper and Joey, we can each watch one show and record two others at the same time, but I hate to infringe on hubby's TV choices. Also, I prefer Hulu because my computer monitor is 10X better than the downstairs Tv.

I just signed up for for no-advertising Hulu and what a huge difference it makes. The fact that it had ads was the only thing I didn't like about Hulu. It's $2 a month more and more than worth it IMO. I hate ads.

Monday is a really bad day for me as well. But so far the only thing I've had to give up is Dancing with the Stars but that is okay. I will have to download Quantico when it starts because it will be across from Castle and Blindspot. I can only record two shows at once.

I liked it, though I was a bit distracted, so I might have to watch it again. It's a very visual show, I think I missed some stuff while I wasn't looking that wasn't verbally repeated.

It has one of my Strike Back guys, so it's definitely on my must-watch list :D
Jill aka Josireesanwar on September 23rd, 2015 05:51 pm (UTC)

Sullivan Stapleton. Yep he's from Strike Back. And I just saw he shares a birthday with my sister. Pretty cool.

Anyways, I liked him and Jane on the show.

ohh, nice coincidence :D I really like him. Well, both of them, so it's nice that Philip has a new show, too :)

And I watched the first two eps of Quantico last night, and I like it a lot better than I expected after the trailer. Jake doesn't hurt either :D

Thought you'd like Jake on Quantico. LOL

It's on my list of shows to have a look at, but I'd like to have a few more episodes before I jump in.

Yes, me too but these things start piling up on my DVR which only holds 150 hours and with everything coming on... that isn't a lot. Plus it is already storing 8 hours of Outlander (I have the first 8 on BluRay) and a few movies I need to watch.

I tend to download everything to my computer, kind of have to as I want to keep up with the US schedules.

I don't really need to start any new shows either, but it might be time to stop watching some other stuff anyway.

I download a few shows if I can't watch them because they are across from something or they are one I love so much I have to have the episodes... but then I tend to buy those too... or get them as gifts.

I understand trying to keep up with the US schedule. I do that for the UK.

I couldn't go on any social media if I don't keep up with the american and uk schedules. Want to be part of the discussion.

I don't buy a lot of shows, I have to know that I will rewatch it before I buy one.
Jill aka Josireesanwar on October 2nd, 2015 09:58 pm (UTC)
That is true!

Oh yes, the discussion spoil everything.

I was quite impressed. I was actually watching Minority Report when it was on but turned that off 10 minutes in (boring) and tuned in to this accidentally but I was hooked. It's on my record list now. Just very intriguing, well acted and fast paced. And I can definitely understand the shipping part. I felt it too. :D
Jill aka Jo: Happy: Calvin Smilesireesanwar on September 23rd, 2015 06:08 pm (UTC)
YAY! So I actually liked Minority Report but I'd chuck it in a second for Blindspot.

I totally agree. It just hooked me and everything seemed really intriguing. I hope it stays that way.

Finally someone saw the ship! Thank you!

I found Minority report lacking in story. It seems like they were depending on "wow, look at the cool technology" to hook viewers. It's not a bad thing in a movie but I figure if they keep doing that on a weekly basis it's going to get pretty repetitive.

I did see the ship and wondered how soon they'll actually end up together, or if that's even one of the endgames of the story as envisioned so far (since writers usually only have 1-2 seasons planned when they first begin). I guess we'll see, but for now what I saw on the screen was pretty heated. :)

That is true about the tech! I hated when she was at the crime scene and it seemed like she couldn't just look around for clues.

YAY! Oh yeah. The way he kept looking at her. Man! I hope that is in the works.

Exactly. IT seems so impersonal, like they can't do anything or think without their tech. I don't tend to like things like that.

I guess we'll have to keep watching to see. :D
Jill aka Jo: Movie: Dragon - Toothless Smilesireesanwar on September 25th, 2015 05:13 pm (UTC)
Me too. I liked the show enough to give it another chance but it is still on probation whereas Blindspot is already in.
