A new FBI profiler, Elizabeth Keen, has her entire life uprooted when a mysterious criminal, Raymond Reddington, who has eluded capture for decades, turns himself in and insists on speaking only to her.
A military hero who returns to the U.S. with a whole lot of trouble following him back. With nowhere else to turn, the man asks CTU to help him save his life while also stopping one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.
Undercover operative Tom Keen joins forces with Susan "Scottie" Hargrave, the brilliant and cunning chief of Grey Matters, a covert mercenary organization that solves problems governments don't dare touch. While on the hunt for his wife's attacker, Tom secretly discovered that Scottie is actually his biological mother, which drew him closer to her. 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 »
Good action, nice break from the Blacklist storyline
So far I'm enjoying this. Tom makes a pretty good main character, and it focuses on his history and backstory with very little involvement of characters from the original series. I really liked the first couple seasons of the original Blacklist, but the recent story lines around Tom and Elizabeth's daughter became dull and uninspiring. All in all its got interesting story lines and good action sequences.
