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.

'

No doubt, this is an excellent series but I wasn't prepared for how violent and gory it would be. Certainly couldn't
watch it before bedtime. And I've only seen the first four episodes (Episode 4 was particularly horrific).

James Spader is brilliant of course and was my reason for purchasing (having just discovered him in 'Boston Legal' on
Universal Channel). Season 2 of The Blacklist starts on SkyLiving on Friday 3rd October 2014.

In a way it is the same premise as my absolute favourite, 'White Collar', but whereas WC has humour as well as
excellent storylines and great acting and NO guns or violence, The Blacklist is really the complete opposite in content.

Reading the 1* reviewer who said that he 'watched The Blacklist with his 7 and 9-year old children and that they enjoyed it' absolutely appalled me - if they can cope with this violence and darkness at their ages and take it for granted, then what on earth will they be watching (or doing) when they are in their teens???? I dread to think. Talk about lack of parental responsibility.
But maybe kids in Denmark are different.

Overall, I feel that the Series is probably best for mature men - it certainly ISN'T family viewing!! It would be AT LEAST a 15-Certificate in the cinema in the UK.

Sometimes amusing, occasionally interesting, often entertaining, and usually ridiculous in the way it wraps up complex issues and megalomaniac genius organizations in a single episode. James Spader is enjoyable as a smug informant who knows absolutely everyone and everything criminal and has a solution for everything. I agree with the one 1 star review saying Megan Boone is absolutely terrible in the role of a tough as nails agent. There had to be better choices. This is a good series to just bring the popcorn and not think about too much, but it's definitely not 5 star material in my opinion..

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.

I watched 10 parts of season one in Canada on Netflix, and from the start I loved it, that is the reason I have ordered this DVD so I can watched the remaining episodes.It is a fantastic series, and James Spader is just spellbinding in this. Very very highly recommended.

Completely different from Boston Legal in everyway. If you like the CIS Miami/NY/Vages e tc then you will enjoy watching James Spader as Raymond Reddington in Blacklist

Not as spectacular as advertised. Good quality programme-making yes, but nothing to blow your mind. Boone's wig-like hair (is it or isn't it?) is somewhat off-putting.
