Now, as they team up to employ their unique skills and resources in a dangerous world of deadly criminals, Tom begins his own mission to find out more about his shadowy past.Written by
This series is rare in Hollywood in that the actors cast as the parents of Tom Keen/Christopher Hargrave (Ryan Eggold) are actually old enough to be his parents. Terry O'Quinn (Howard Hargrave) was born in 1952, Famke Janssen (Susan 'Scottie' Hargrave) was born in 1964, and Ryan Eggold was born in 1984. Since Famke is 19 years his senior and Terry 31 years his senior, it's plausible that Scottie and Howard could be Christopher's (Tom's) parents. See more »
The indefatigable Tom Keen from The Blacklist sets off on new adventures as part of a shadowy organization contracted by the US government that may or may not be the good guys. As with The Blacklist, it's hard to tell who's naughty and nice in this exciting TV show that, while derivative at times, benefits immeasurably from breathless pacing and meticulously plotted stories. At its core, this is a story of love and betrayal, with liberal doses of paranoia thrown in. I wouldn't want to live in Tom Keen's world, but I have to admit that it makes for an entertaining hour of television.
