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 »
So far I enjoy the characters they are building. I find that today stories need to unfold and people always jump on the hate wagon to early to allow the story to be told. This series has action, suspense and interesting characters, the uncovering of Tom's story is very good.
I feel the key is how they weave it into the Blacklist to give this world a sense of cohesion with the BL universe. It will be nice to see Liz and Red join the fray. I am enjoying it thus far 3 episodes in and look forward to seeing what is next. I find good stories are not in if the story has similarities to other stories but the nuances of how the story is told and the feelings we get toward the characters who are setting the pace.
I have always thought Tom was a bad ass and loved Famke she is top notch and nice on the eyes. Again the key is in how they cross over the two shows and I sure hope people give this show a chance to develop as i feel every spin off needs time to stretch its legs. Until later I think this is a great watch.
