The Blacklist is an American crime drama television series that began on September 23, 2013.
Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader), voluntarily surrenders to the FBI after eluding capture for decades. He then goes on to drip feed a list of most-wanted criminals to the FBI.
James Spader is excellent bringing a clever mix of humour, violence and mystery.
He always has a hidden motive.
Reddigton relates every situation to a likeable story from some event in his dark twisted past. His calm, cultured demeanour hides a darker violent side that reveals itself when things get rough. Megan Boone plays the beautiful FBI agent, Elizabeth Keen. Her life is thrown into turmoil on her very first day as an FBI agent thanks to Reddingtons insistance on having her involvement in every case he reveals.
The Blacklist offers a exciting blend of crime, chase scenes, memorable characters and ever changing plot twists. We watched first 2 seasons back to back over three nights!
