Love the show except the seeing eye dog is definitely NOT a seeing eye dog. Should have a better trained dog.

LOVE this show! It is very honest, which is very refreshing!
Characters are real, not sugar sweet or nasty rotten -- they're all a bit of both...

I want to hate this show so bad due to the lead character -- though breathtakingly portrayed by Ms Mattfield (who does, however need to look more blind at least every once-in-a-while, as her eyes are ALWAYS focused -- or maybe the character's faking!) -- being thoroughly reprehensible at times. Yet there is an underlying and powerful concern in her for her missing buddy.

I want to hate it, but I can't. Like an illegal painkiller, I'm addicted. Where will this disgusting character land?

Pleased to see my network-sponsored-mind/curiosity-drug survive for at least one more season.

I think...

I’m on episode two. Loving it.
The lead is amazing. Love how much she loves Tyson.
I bought the series on iTunes — & am in heaven. ❤️❤️❤️
Love the cast too. Murphy’s roommate is so sweet & obviously sees something good in Murphy. Plus —
The chemistry between Murphy & Max is amazing.

A combination of Bad Santa and Bad Teacher.
A deliberately unlikable character but I suspect with some redemption coming, if the series survives.
Her slutty, overall bad behavior does spawn some humour.

I watched about 5 minutes of it and couldn't stand it.

The first episode (pilot) was shot in just 2 weeks with little information known about the show's inception, addition enquiries by the entertainment media as to what prep' work was done on the realities of blindness carried out by the cast and writers have apparently been met with evasive and confused responses.

Some early critics/reporters and screenings viewers have been left with the belief that little to no research on the subject was carried out which, having watched the pilot, I wholeheartedly agree with.

There is quite literally nothing to like about this show, most notably the main crux of the story being based around a thoroughly unlikable character (not to mention a really bad representation of a blind person) investigating the murder of another thoroughly unlikable character.

I also must say that I think Perry Mattfeld was miscast in the lead role and I'm very surprised she decided to take the part, given her theatrical background. She deserves a better vehicle to break into TV (as a lead anyway) but saying that I would have thought she would have passed on this particular show.

She most likely wanted to do something edgy/gritty to make a name for herself as a 'serious actor' but even if she had 'the chops' for the part (sadly, I don't think she does) the production would ultimately let her down.

Hard pass for me!

This is a Ben Stiller production. I watched trailer at imdb and nothing is appealing to me. An easy pass.
