Disappointing
7 June 2020 | by fmperisetSee all my reviews

Although 'The Front' is not without its memoriable moments (the final 10 minutes are moving and bitter-sweet), it utterly fails to bring fresh air to the show. The plot (although oddly prophetic in retrospect) becomes repetitive and, other than a few good pieces of dialogue, the writing is uninspired. Sadly, this episode fails to make 'The Blacklist' feel distinctive and wastes its personality. I hope this is only an exception in an otherwise fine, funny, chilling and thoroughly entertaining show.
