Blind Justice Pilot - Revolves Around

Watching the series premiere of Blind Justice. I think it'd be a bit inevitable that I'd find it a bit disappointing that it doesn't start off the with same kind of arch wryness that Murder One was able to convey. That said, the tone is pretty accomplished, nothing to complain about. You'd never be able to tell that Rena Sofer was on a spectacularly failed sitcom previously, and she looks better than she did when she was lighted so harshly as sitcoms do. And yes, the dog is sort of cute.

Maybe I was wrong - because the dog, he can't drive. And obviously he would be assigned to Hot Partner Lady. Looks better on the show. The aural visualisation is pretty impressive, very gamelike. I think I really like the partner.

All in all very promising, I think I like it more than others do. It's not doing anything fantastic in terms of inventiveness or innovation, but the quality of the work stands out - it's a good pilot, most pilots aren't this good. I do get the feeling they're really more pushing forward than holding back, setting things up for a short story arc to finish the season. The best thing about it though, is that it seems to be something where it can very quickly move beyond the premise and not get weighed down by it, like say CSI, or Numb3rs. The premise is incidental to the show, not what it revolves around. And the female lead really looks like she's going to be able to step up. I get the sense that I tend not to look at, or tend not to see or pay that much attention to, the blind guy - it's a strange realisation. It's like the show revolves around something/someone that's not there.

Get the torrent while it lasts.
