Blindspot: The Complete Second Season is nice step up from an already good freshman season with an expansion on the mystery surrounding Jane Doe and a fine mixture between procedural and serial and an effective season-long villain.

SEASON SYNOPSIS


Season Two blasts open with shocking revelations about Jane Doe’s (JAIME ALEXANDER) true identity and her connections with the shadowy terror organization Sandstorm. When Jane escapes CIA custody, she is recaptured by Weller’s (SULLIVAN STAPLETON) FBI team, still reeling from the death of their former boss, who convinces her to become a triple agent. Nas Kamal (ARCHIE PANJABI) – head of a secret NSA division – joins Weller, Patterson (ASHLEY JOHNSON), Reade (ROB BROWN) and Zapata (AUDREY ESPARZA) to help take down Sandstorm, where Roman (LUKE MITCHELL) and Shepherd (MICHELLE HURD) now work. With explosive threats coming from all sides, solving the riddle of Jane’s cryptic clues becomes more urgent than ever. But betrayals threaten to tear Jane and the team apart for good.

VIDEO – 4.25/5


Blindspot: The Complete Second Season escapes from an Oregon CIA black site and onto Blu-ray presented in its originally televised 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio. The 1080p high-definition transfer (MPEG-4 AVC codec) looks decent with natural-looking skin tones, well defined detail in most scenes and cleans, devoid of artifacts, aliasing and banding. Colors are generally bright and any darkly lit scenes are stark.

AUDIO – 4.25/5


Each episode comes with a solid DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track which works on many levels from dialogue which comes through, primarily, the center speaker crisp and clear to the numerous action sequences which makes great usage of the front and rear channels. On the downside, the LFE doesn’t kick in or isn’t very effective but when considering this aired probably as DD5.1, it’s still a fine lossless track.

 


OVERALL – 3.75/5


Overall, Blindspot: The Complete Second Season is nice step up from an already good freshman season with an expansion on the mystery surrounding Jane Doe and a fine mixture between procedural and serial and an effective season-long villain. The Blu-ray released by Warner includes good video and audio transfers and a solid selection of bonus material.
