A Name, By Any Other Face

I wasn’t planning to watch NBC’s latest offering, Blindspot. My dance card was already nigh to overflowing, and besides, I’d read that the lead actor’s emotional range went from ‘serious scowl’ to ‘my forehead has more furrows than the Mariana Trench scowl’.

Unfortunately my Brain had latched on to one fact it believed to be incontrovertible; the lead actress was Jamie Murray – she of H.G. Wells (Warehouse 13) and Stahma Tarr (Defiance) fame.

Problem was, Brain connected that face to the name, of the person actually starring in the show, Jamie Alexander – she of Lady Sif (‘Thor’ movies and guest spots on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) fame … and Brain would not be swayed from this position.

As I studied the stills on the show’s Wikipedia page I could see something was off. Brain told me I was imagining things and I believed Brain because Brain was the final arbiter in all things think-y.

But secretly? I harboured doubts. Doubts strong enough to convince me to watch the pilot episode. (which now that I think about it, was Brain’s endgame all along)

Brain is now fired.

    You’re funny! I need to fire my brain and find a replacement (my brain never revealed I could do such a thing… who knew?)

    I’d like to fire my brain, but I’d never get another one to do the job for the same price. Looks like I may be stuck with the frankly fairly useless brain I’ve already got. 😦

    Dear Widdershins,
    I love your sense of humor! It’s amazing how something entices us to watch a movie or a tv show!

    Have a fun day!
