It might sound as though we're headed into familiar sitcom territory, but Blindspotting has plenty of drama in its saddlebags, and it's unapologetically artsy into the bargain.
While this show has brilliant moments and sequences, it struggles with blending the risky creative choices that made the original movie a standout with a more traditional television format.
Back in the day, they'd call this a 'spin-off', giving a minor character their own show with occasional drop-ins from the original leads to remind viewers why they're there ... thus far, it's touch and go.
The series is not for everyone. It will discombobulate some viewers who want their comedy served up in easily recognizable form. But it's utterly fascinating as a whimsical concoction that has real weight.
Much like her role in the film, Jones is a shining, yet grounding force, though here we now have the benefit of getting a greater insight into the charming Ashley.
