slow start but is great veiwing,
This review is from: The Blacklist - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
the begining of this series I found to be a bit slow going, but spader is teh launchpad for everything. his character drives the show, and If im honest is teh best thing about it. theres even a bit of alan shore ( boston legal) in his character RED.
this show fuses probably 24,homeland, and such shows together into the murky world of inteligence gathering, black ops, organised crime. all based around Red who has a connection with the female FBI agent who doesnt have a clue why. Red just happens to be on teh FBI most wanted list and is willing to give himself up and help the FBI....but only through her. But nothing is what it appears to be
Hopefully that will wet your apppetite. the story lines are better than alot of teh other stuff on teh 45 min format playing at the moment
so if you like your fix with twists and turns, gun fights, murders, executions, intrigue,, Cia agents, russian mobsters, columbian drug laors, revenge, mystery, torture....actually quite alot of torture, and teh ocaisional funny moment from spader then you will enjoy this...probably alot
