This is what I call great 'bubble gum tv'. It's a show that moves at breakneck speed and has plenty of intrigue to keep you watching to the end. It's not without its flaws. The plots have huge holes in them and the acting by the support actors could get you splinters. However, the whole thing is brought together by without doubt the best lead actor I have seen in any TV series. James Spader playing Red, makes The Blacklist so watchable and I would recommend this series to anyone. I can't wait for series 2.
5 stars for James Spader.

This has to be the hit of the year for me ! Impossible to just watch one episode at a time. Excellently cast and played , and it is nice that each episode has a different story , but a progressing backgound story thoughout. Really looking forward to season 2 which I know will give me square eyes as will watch it pretty much non-stop! Terrific!

James Spader is the undisputed star of this awesome show, playing Raymond Reddington, a permanent resident of the FBI's most wanted list. For reasons of his own, he voluntarily starts working with the FBI, and one agent in particular, to take down members of the world's criminal underbelly that Reddington himself considers the scum of the earth. He plays his anti-hero role perfectly, with dry acerbic panache, underpinned by a deep well of genuine 'something'. What it is, we'll have to wait and see, but there is obviously something important at his core driving him. This is definitely a thriller, but there is plenty of emotion, humour and razor sharp wit to lighten the tension. Nobody can sneer quite like James Spader, although I read once that many people would pay good money to see a sneering contest between Spader and Kevin Spacey. Reddington's complicated relationship with his FBI go-to agent, Elizabeth Keen, is marvellous, as is his interactions with other FBI suits as well as associates and/or friends who aren't precisely in strictly legal lines of work. There is a definite long story arc at play here, although each episode generally deals with another name on the List. If you watch out of order, I'd say you will miss about 50% of what's really going on. Thoroughly entertaining to watch the FBI work with the devil they know to take down the truly evil, plus simultaneous other plots and subplots, this show is definitely worth watching.

OMG!! What a character Red Reddington is! James Spader almost instantly 'throws off' the round wire spec's and geeky archaeologist character of Daniel Jackson (Stargate) and brings to life a deliciously 'bad' super-criminal turned "advisor" to the FBI.From the first episode, me and my partner were hooked and "just one more episode" would turn into four more and bedtime was in the early hours of the morning!

Only way to truly describe this show is joyous. is it a believable show? No. Its a fantasy in many ways, one built on suspense rather than an absolute reality. Are there plot holes? No doubt although some of those I am sure have been left deliberately to fill in later.

The action and characters are watchable and the mystery surrounding Reddington is engaging. The criminal of the week is a way to have something in the immediate for the audience while the long play, the real plot, is happening slowly over the season and beyond.

But ultimately, what makes this show work is James Spader. His performance is wonderful to watch. His character is how I would imagine his Boston Legal character, Alan Shore, if he went completely over to the dark side rather than simply sticking his toe in it every once in a while. The character is by turns charming, sympathetic, compassionate, intelligent, ruthless, hilarious and irredeemable. That Spader is able to bring out all the facets of this character without any of the parts looking alien to the others is a testament to his acting skills.

The Blacklist is a great espionage thriller based T.V. show and I think it's the fourth best T.V. programme currently on after Game of Thrones, The Americans and Orphan Black.

The five star rating is well deserved, great writing, producing, acting and direction. Each episode has it's villain of the week and character story-arc's with also a slow burn background story-arc of why James Spader's character Raymond "RED" Redington came in from the cold.

The packaging that this Blu-ray set comes in though is in my opinion a shambles, it's too bulky on the outside and not enough room within for the content. The episodes are spread across 6 discs, when they could have fitted all the content on 4 discs. There is also an 11 page booklet within the case which does not fit and will get damaged every time due too the fact that there are 6 discs in the case so you have to remove the booklet every time you want to access disc 1. If they had reduced the number of discs to 4 or even 5 there would have been a space for the booklet as the case is designed for 6 discs only. Everything is squeezed into the case and I have had difficulty in closing the set case.

The stories are not unique. The formula of having short-story episodes with a long-term underlying story is not unique. There is a laundry list of not "unique." There are holes you can drive through and standard end-of-episode twist.

Enough of the "nots." This is downright fun seeing Spader smirk and Megan Boone cringe. As there is a politically incorrect dispatching or dissecting of the bad guys. An added plus is all of the cameos from various ancient actors.

The story is basically an ex-government agent turned entrepreneur. He has his own agenda at catching the biggest most secretive bad people, he calles his "Blacklist." He offers to help the government track down the cabals with one caveat; his only contact is through Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone) Liz has no Idea why she was picked and speculates throughout the series. As the series progresses she changes from squeamish to aggressive leaving you think she was named after Lizzy Borden.

Anyway this is not the program to be watching a supper.
