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 »

Elisabeth
16 March 2019 | by gdaskalou-32516See all my reviews

This is indeed one of my favorite shows and one of the best i have seen. Spader is insane and the character is amazing. But for the love of god can someone please kill elisabeth and get her to dissapear from the show?? Terrible acting and iritating character makes a bad combo ... let her die so we can enjoy the series and not want to pull our eyes out ...
