‘Blindspot,’ ‘Minority Report’ and ‘Gotham’ Season Premieres Spark Mixed Reactions on Social Media

Two newcomers and one sophomore show kick off Monday on Fox and NBC

(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched Monday’s premieres of “Blindspot,” “Minority Report” and “Gotham”)

It was premiere night on Monday with “Blindspot,” “Minority Report” and “Gotham” all airing their first episodes of the season.

With Fox and NBC both boasting strong new action series, and the crime drama based on the DC comics Batman franchise returning for a sophomore season, social media was fired up over the fresh network offerings.

See the responses below.

“Blindspot” (NBC)

In “Blindspot,” Jaimie Alexander‘s amnesiac “Jane Doe” wakes up naked and tattooed in Times Square with FBI agent Kurt Weller’s name stamped on her back. The plot has drawn comparisons to Fox’s 2002 series “John Doe,” which starred Dominic Purcell, who also turned up naked, also suffered amnesia, also wielded special abilities.

Executive produced by Greg Berlanti with creator Martin Gero, “Blindspot” was described by TheWrap’s reviewer Deborah Day as a “24”-style fast-paced, body-slamming drama that could develop into a promising new fall TV series.

“Minority Report” (Fox)

Building off Steven Spielberg‘s 2002 dystopian thriller, “Minority Report” takes place in 2065, about a decade after the movie, which ended with Precrime being abolished. No longer relying on the precogs, a trio of empaths who can foresee crimes before they occur, Washington, D.C., law enforcement now must lean on old-fashioned police work to catch bad guys.

While the original starred Tom Cruise and Colin Farrell, the TV reboot (also executive produced by Spielberg) features Stark Sands, Meagan Good, Nick Zano, Laura Regan and Wilmer Valderrama.


“Gotham” (Fox) 

After a successful first run last year, the Batman prequel returned for Season 2 on Monday with a new updated tone; Fox’s DC Universe show is predicted to charm viewers once again.

Robin Lord Taylor is back as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, along with Ben McKenzie as James Gordon, Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock, David Mazouz as an adolescent Bruce Wayne, and new guest star Michael Chiklis.
