Storyline

Ex-government agent and one of the FBI's Most Wanted fugitives, Raymond "Red" Reddington (James Spader) mysteriously turns himself in to the FBI and offers to give up everyone he has ever worked with including a long-thought-dead terrorist but under one condition - he'll only talk to newly-minted female FBI profiler, Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone) with whom he seemingly has no connection. For Liz, it's going to be one hell of a first day on the job and what follows is a twisting series of events as the race to stop a terrorist begins. Written by NBC

Quotes

Harold Cooper: The first what?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: Name! On the list.
Harold Cooper: What list?
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: It's called the Blacklist. That sounds exciting! That's why we're all here, of course. My wish list, a list I've been cultivating for over 20 years: politicians, mobsters, hackers, spies.

A Bit Too Much!
22 May 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a pilot. As is the case with any series that I start, I recognize that the characters aren't developed, the plot is somewhat preposterous, the FBI looks incompetent, and so on. So, now, what do they do to fix the sharp edges and get us involved. Our psychotic puppeteer must have some reason for doing what he is doing. I suppose it starts to involve kindred spirits and all that. This episode is so over the top. The thing that sent me into the kitchen to chop vegetables was the abduction of the little girl. It's as if a secret document was opened, saying, "Act as stupidly and as incompetently as you can and get the little girl kidnapped." She could have been protected in so many ways, but off to the highway with danger lurking around every corner. Anyway, give them a chance and see how well written this show is.
