Storyline

A highly articulate, erudite and intelligent businessman and mastermind, "Red" Reddington, has allegedly been on the "10 Most Wanted List" of various U.S. law enforcement agencies for over 20 years. The legend is that Red is as elusive as he is clever, controlling a labyrinth of creative enterprises, coupled with uncanny ability to gather and finesse information at the drop of a hat. On the first day at FBI for a new female profiler fresh out of Quantico, Red offers to bandy wits with the FBI. Red promises to deliver various criminals and plots previously unknown to any branch of law enforcement... and all Red requests in return is to choose his muse. Written by LA-Lawyer

Goofs

This show, like many from Hollywood that show a lot of gun use, routinely plays a sound effect of a gun being cocked whenever a gun is seen on screen. Often the gun shown either has no external hammer and cannot make the sound played or it has already been fired, negating the ability to cock it. This sound effect is used by sound editors that lack an understanding of how firearms operate. See more »

Gets better before it gets worse.
18 January 2019 | by sagir-khanSee all my reviews

James Spader is an enigma of an actor. His voice and acting can carry any show. The supporting cast are great. The Blacklist has several likeable characters including Tom, Dembe, Cooper, Ressler and especially Aram Mujtabai but it suffers at its core because of its female protagonist

The main problem is the female lead character, Elizabeth Keen. Megan Boone has done a good job of portraying the character but the writing behind the character is awful. Special Agent Keen was likeable until halfway through season 3. The character has massive daddy issues and zero integrity. She will constantly have a hot and cold relationship with Raymond but at the end of the day she will side with Raymond every time. She's quick to overlook every criminal offence Red has committed and is likely to commit in the future and she will readily justify it by saying the FBI needs him. She has even shown she's willing to commit crimes if she can get away with it. Her self righteousness has also spread out and infected the other characters over the later seasons. I had originally rated this show 8/10 but the score dropped down 2 points in the last two seasons.
