Fall TV reviews: 'Minority Report,' 'Blindspot' & 'Limitless'
What would you do if you discovered you had the power to see the future, or to absorb and make use of all the knowledge in human history, or simply kept discovering new and unexplained abilities at all hours of the day? In the real world, you might try to make a fortune on the stock market, or work to end world hunger, or develop a working time machine. On television, though, you'd use your powers to fight crime. Always. The TV business has yet to meet the characters whose unconventional skills can't be used to help close murder cases. We're entering the eighth season of a novelist working as an NYPD consultant on ABC, and both Leonardo da Vinci and Ichabod Crane have both somehow become part-time sleuths in recent series. It's a format that not only has a long commercial track record, but that's simply safer and easier
