The Blacklist – TV Review

The-Blacklist-Megan-Boone-and-James-Spader

Former government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader), who left and became a master criminal, walks in to the FBI and offers himself up provided he can deal with new agent Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone). He tells them that he will help them deal with his Blacklist – a series of very, very nasty people who have managed to fly below the radar, doing terrible things.

Most episodes deal with one target but then also follow the bigger story – what was the story with Elizabeth’s past, and what’s the story with her husband, Tom (Ryan Eggold)?

I thoroughly enjoyed this series – it wasn’t a high-brow series like most of the HBO series, but it’s ace fun times, exciting and dramatic. A more serious Chuck and on par with one of my favourite series, Alias. And it’s always wonderful to see James Spade doing almost anything – or at least, anything with a decent script.
