The Blacklist is known for its twists, turns and surprises - and the season 1 finale Monday night was no exception. "It's kind of keeping with what we've done all season," star Megan Boone told reporters about the freshman NBC drama's season finale while attending a press event last week. "I don't think we'd be doing it justice if we didn't make it a full-blown thriller." And the thrills were many. Spoiler Alert: Plot developments to be revealed. Early on in Monday night's finale, Raymond "Red" Reddington (James Spader) is being re-imprisoned and confesses that Liz (Boone) "was worth it," but »

Mondays will be a barren wasteland without The Blacklist to fill them. The series was NBC’s breakout drama this year, earning it the prime after-Superbowl slot next winter. With an average of 14.8 million viewers, The Blacklist ranks fourth among scripted series overall and second in broadcast dramas for the young adults category.
The show’s whip-smart dialogue and golden ratio of satisfying answers to suspenseful questions make a solid structure to support its cast of characters. Naturally, James Spader, as the criminal mastermind-turned-fbi-informant Red Reddington is the shining center of this series. But its other regulars can all hold »

A quarter-century ago, Kevin Costner hit a double-play, following up "Bull Durham" with "Field of Dreams" and becoming king of the sports movie. Twenty-five years later, as "Field of Dreams" marks its 25th anniversary (it was released on April 21, 1989), Costner is back with "Draft Day." The movie's about football, not baseball, and Costner's character plays in the executive suite, not on the field, but his mere presence still offers a reminder of great sports movies past.
And after all, isn't nostalgia a key element of sports movies? "Field of Dreams" makes this explicit -- we long for the sports heroes of our childhood, for a supposed long-gone golden age of our preferred sport, as a way of connecting with our past and bridging the generational divide that separates us as adults from our parents. Sports movies offer more than just the drama of winners and losers, or the journey from dream to achievement, »

The Blacklist, Season 1, Episode 13: “The Cyprus Agency”
Written by Lukas Reiter
Directed by Michael Watkins
Airs Mondays at 10pm Et on NBC
The most essential and important part of a television show is having characters that the viewer inherently cares about and whose interests or concerns they care about as much as the characters themselves do. Without that, the show becomes a house of cards that grows evermore unstable as time goes on. Sure, the story drives the episodes from one point to another, but emotional connections aren’t made with the story or, if they are, it’s to a much lesser degree. No connections are made with characters and The Blacklist has created a story that is adequate with characters that, outside of James Spader’s Red, are completely weak and as close to one-dimensional as it gets.
Continuing from last week’s episode, Red continues his »

In The Blacklist explosive episode, “The Cyprus Agency,” Red discovered Diane Fowler as the real mole and Lizzie put the brakes on her adoption plans.
Red (James Spader) exploited Lizzie’s (Megan Boone) desire for a child and sent her on the hunt for The Cyprus Agency, No. 64, a sinister adoption agency. Lizzie and Tom (Ryan Eggold) appear to be on track with their adoption plans while somewhere, a drugged woman wearing nothing but a hospital gown stumbles into the streets and gets the attention of a policeman. A man in a van pulls up and tries to take the woman with him, claiming she is his sister. Unconvinced, the policeman heads to his squad car as the woman mumbles about somebody taking her baby. The man shoots them both and leaves the scene.

We have a small golden circle of writers who do everything, in effect closing the door on Britain's rich diversity of talent
A meeting I attended this week, chaired by the culture minister Ed Vaizey in the House of Commons, was in many ways a ground-breaking event. For the first time, representatives from film, television and the performing arts came together to acknowledge that representation among black, Asian and ethnic minorities across the television and film industry – most significantly behind the camera – has fallen from 7.4% in 2009 to 5.4% in 2012, and is continuing to decrease, and that it is not an acceptable state of affairs in a vibrant democracy which boasts a rich diversity of cultures. Most important, we recognise it is our job collectively to reverse this trend by ensuring that the inequalities faced by ethnic minority talent become a thing of the past.

Was the mole revealed on this week's "Blacklist"? We think there is perhaps more to the story.
Case of the Week
The blacklister this week is no. 101, the Alchemist. He's Eric Trettel, who previously worked on the human genome project and was a DNA evidence expert. But when he was discovered to have falsified some DNA evidence in a mob case, he went freelance as a person who can make you "disappear" for the right amount of money.
Now Trettel is hired by wealthy, guilty people. He fakes their deaths by using innocent people for the bodies (including children, if needed) and manipulating genetic material/evidence.
As Agent Keen's team closes in on him, he kills the mob informant and wife (Peter and Catherine Madrczyk) that was hired to "kill" and then takes out his own wife and daughter, trying to eliminate any possible person who could lead the feds to him. »
