Undeniably the biggest success story of the 2013-2014 TV season's freshman class, NBC's "The Blacklist" started out ferociously fast-paced and strong, and consistently raised the stakes as the story moved along.

But that's not the only aspect of this show that inspired us to watch each new episode as soon as it premiered. Here are a few of the reasons we can't get enough of it.

We may have reached the traditional television season's halfway point, but lots of new series haven't premiered yet. Among these upcoming series debuts are a few destined to have a place on several "Best of 2014" lists at year's end.

The shows listed here fall into all of these categories, and while I can't guarantee all (or any) of them will earn huge ratings or critical acclaim, I am intrigued enough by what I've seen of them to put them on my Watchlist for at least a few episodes.
