Never was a fan of James Spader but I thought what the Hell I'll give this show a try. I'm glad I did, it's totally AWESOME!

Please don't let his real daughter be Keen. Does anyone else also wish Reddington was their father? I do! This show is exciting and interesting with a 'wow you're perfect at your job' performance by James Spader. Not a huge fan of Agent Keen's constant sad mouth. We get it, your husband wasn't who he said he was and you're angry at the world, but you're a character on a tv show so it's about time you get over it. I'd like more Red action and less 'agents with addictions' side stories.

One of the best spy shows out there. James Spader is America's version of James Bond with an evil genius streak. If it's all black and white he's Redd.

this is a good and interesting show, very complex plot, keeps you stuck to the screen until it's over. Is easy to get a bit lost or even bored sometimes with some of the characters, but still brings you back with a great twist.

Megan Boone was a poor choice for the female star. She just doesn't seem to get her character even tho now she's a bit better than before. James Spader shines in this. LOOVE him. The story telling is also good especially the main plot line. Each week trying to figure out what Reddington is up to and what's his spin on each name on the blacklist is why hubby and I keep watching.

The writers really need to write Liz some better lines and get her a better wig!

The Blacklist is a crime drama with a hint of mystery. James Spader plays an arrogant, charming and ruthless criminal who helps the government catch bad guys on the blacklist whilst furthering his own personal agenda. The show is ruthless, action packed and doesn't hold back. I recommend this show for action crime drama mystery addicts.

I wasn't sure that I would like "The Blacklist". I waited until the first season was on NetFlix before I even considered watching it. But when I did -- all I can say is "WOW!" James Spader's portrayal of "Red" Reddington is fantastic. I feel very schizophrenic watching this show. One minute I hate him and the next I am rooting for him. Those on his blacklist are quite fascinating -- kind of says something when you are on Red's list of despicable characters. I wish some of the other actors could act a little better, but I am willing to overlook that aspect of the show. The writing keeps me on the edge of my seat and I can hardly wait for the next episode.
