Will You Add NBC's The Blacklist to Your List?

Sep 23 2013, 10:14pm CDT | by TV Line

/>James Spader (Boston Legal) is back — and he’s messing with FBI agents, chatting up terrorists and chewing up scenery. His character made a new NBC drama’s titular list and checked it twice, but is The Blacklist (which premiered Monday at 10/9c) naughty or nice?

The cat-and-mouse caper centers on Raymond Reddington (Spader), one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives, and his relationship with neophyte FBI profiler Elizabeth Keen (played by Megan Boone, Blue Bloods). Raymond, a criminal mastermind with a penchant for causing havoc, turns himself in after years on the run, but refuses to speak with anyone other than Elizabeth.

He reveals that an old terrorist colleague plans on kidnapping an important American military figure’s daughter, leading Elizabeth and her FBI colleagues, played by the intense Harry Lennix (Dollhouse) and the dashing Diego Klattenhoff (Homeland), on a desperate and dangerous mission to protect the girl.

Heralded as one of the best new dramas this fall, the series indeed has its merits. Spader and Boone play off of each other extremely well; Boone’s believable intensity softens Spader’s occasionally hammy delivery.

The pilot sets up a bevy of mysteries right off the bat: Why does Raymond want to work with Elizabeth? Is he her father? Why is he turning himself in now? And, perhaps most intriguing of all, what is Elizabeth’s husband (Ryan Eggold, 90210) hiding? Like that of its fellow new Monday night drama Sleepy Hollow, however, the series’ pilot balances these various threads with aplomb — the hour never feels messy or disjointed.

We’re certainly curious to find out more about Raymond Reddington and his list of wanted criminals, especially if Spader can temper his performance. And we’d keep watching just to see Parminder Nagra (ER) in future episodes. (Although she does not appear in the pilot, Nagra is a series regular).

But enough about what we thought: What was your take on The Blacklist? Grade the episode via the poll below, then hit the comments to back up your choice!

The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 7 Review: The Scimitar

Nov 3 2014 11:18pm CST | Source: TV Fanatic

Let’s be honest, the big reveal viewers will be talking about when it comes to The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 7 came at the very end of the hour right before credits rolled. But isn’t that how The Blacklist has been doing it these days? Rather than send in a team of trained assassins to take out Berlin like Liz was hoping Red would do, the fedora loving villain decided it was time to clear the air, chat about a complete and utter misunderstanding and reveal Berlin’s daughter ...

The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 6 Review: The Mombasa Cartel

Oct 27 2014 11:17pm CDT | Source: TV Fanatic

The Blacklist has had its fair share of killers and eccentric villains, but no matter how many times various TV shows and films introduce the crazy family in the backwoods that likes to hunt people, I’m pretty much always creeped out. Maybe a little Deliverance banjo in the background to really add to the mood? But this family of wackos, just part of a piece in a twisty conspiracy involving cartels, poaching, and ...

'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' Trailer Has No Strings

Oct 22 2014 9:10pm CDT | Source: Huffington Post

The first trailer for "Marvel's The Avengers: Age of Ultron" leaked online on Wednesday evening. But in a baller move presumably out of Tony Stark's playbook, Disney and Marvel decided to combat the breach by releasing the official teaser in full, one week before it was scheduled to debut. (The studios had planned on premiering the initial "Age of Ultron" trailer on Oct. 28 during an ...

The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 5 Review: The Front

Oct 20 2014 11:10pm CDT | Source: TV Fanatic

With all the Ebola panic these days, The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 5 threat of the plague seemed much more relevant of a topic for the show to focus on. We’re especially lucky that some cult leader hasn’t gotten a hold of that virus, got his followers to become infected by it before getting on flights to spread it around. Now that’s a really scary thought. And I’ve got to hand it to this particular episode for kicking thing ...

The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 3 Review: Dr. James Covington

Oct 6 2014 10:46pm CDT | Source: TV Fanatic

Liz is definitely more on edge, more hardened in The Blacklist Season 2 than compared with The Blacklist Season 1. Ressler knows it, Red knows it, even Cooper knows it. And while it’s great to see her taking charge, focused on her missions and not just being a pawn in Red’s games, there is concern that she could go to far. Though, back in The Blacklist Season 1 Episode 1, she was a rookie agent th ...
