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.

So sorry, folks. It's quite entertaining, but bares no close scrunity to anything resembling reality. Suspension of disbelief is one thing; pure suspension is another. We are asked to believe a wanted criminal walks calming into the FBI offering fatal information about other criminals ... and they go with it? We are asked to believe that our wanted criminal will only deal with one new officer ... and they allow it? Each episode dispatches one master criminal ... and we are asked to believe that this can happen in the time slot of however many minutes? Master criminals who have spent years perfecting their craft? They aren't master criminals, they are plot devices. This is candy floss - there's a tiny nugget of an idea spun into a confection of air. And the acting, except for Spader (one note, though, played endlessly) is elementary ... and boring. Maybe one acting tactic ... and even this is shared amongst the cast.

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.

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 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'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.

'

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.
