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.

I enjoyed this programme on Sky very much. So much so that I bought season 1 on DVD. It comes with an Ultra violet Copy so that you can download onto any Media such as mobile phones or tablets. Its about a superspy type character now thought of as some sort of criminal who has got immunity because he's helping the FBI with a "Blacklist" of his old enemies who are also considered dangerous by the FBI. The Character referred to as Red is assisted by a Female agent of his own choosing who he has expressed an interest in and part of the plot is trying to find out why he has singled her out. Anyway you need to watch this yourself to find out if you like it or not as thats as much as I intend to give away.

The outstanding performance that James Spader brings to the show as Reddington is what takes this from a 4 star to a 5 star. He never fails to dissapoint and just when you think you've got him all figured out, you usually haven't. It's a fast paced show that has its plot holes but I have a feeling this is to do with the bigger picture further down line.

The rest of the cast deliver okay performances but it's Spader who carries this show and makes it as good as it is. Highly reccommend.

I was looking forward to watch this series thinking that it would be similar to series such as "Boardwalk Empire", "Breaking Bad" or "True Detectives".

But this series is not great TV. It is just one more ordinary " light weight " series with more or less independent episodes, such as "Person of Interest" or "Preliminary" only with much more violence, more absurd/ridiculous plots and worse actors.

The main actress of "The Black list" is so bland that she ruins the story whenever she appears and she appears most of the time.
Even James Spader is not as good as he was in his films or in "Boston Legal". The black hat and the shaved head, a reference to a far better series, are pathetic.

The episodes are sometimes so absurd that they made me laugh. The stories are very predictable as this is mediocre TV following a very unoriginal formula. Many times I knew what was going to happen well in advance either because of the lack of originality or because of the political correctness. I can't elaborate on the political correctness here because then I would need to write a plot spoiler, this disgraceful practice that is so usual on Amazon's reviews.

I would like to end mentioning the packaging of the discs: It is the most stupid packaging that I've ever seen: Six discs piled on the top of each other. If you want to watch disc four, for example, you need to first remove the first three discs. And so on.

Of course, most of the reviewers giving five stars to this set of dvd don't know that as they watched the series on tv or internet...

P.S Internet hoodlums and the likes are not welcome to post comments about my review. There are far too many reviews with unwarned plot spoilers on Amazon. Go to those reviews and criticise them.

I'm quite amazed at how mediocre this show is considering it's feedback. Mind you, Breaking Bad has pretty much raised the bar to extreme heights, and ruined the competition for quite some time to come. I would imagine.

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.

This is a great series came across it abroad on cbs channel. So tried catching it in uk but kept missing it. So thanks love film because this is a witty. Tactful and intricate look at life and drama . The focus of the two central characters and wondering what if any is the relationship between them. As well as little clues thrown in each episode its a great watch for those who like mind games. I am very intrigued and that does not happen easily. Soaps bore me this absorbs me! James Spader is fab in this
