A drama following an agent-turned-fugitive who offers to help the FBI catch top criminals.

Ex-government agent Raymond "Red" Reddington has been one of the FBI's most wanted fugitives for decades, thanks to his skillful brokering of shady deals for top criminals around the world.

Red has mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an offer to the agency. He will help them catch a previously-thought dead terrorist under the condition that he speaks only to a certain FBI profiler named Elizabeth Keen. As a twisting series of events unfolds in the race to stop a terrorist, they wonder what Red's true intentions are and exactly why he has chosen Elizabeth to deal with.

It is revealed that Red has actually compiled has a long list over the years that is known as a "blacklist" of politicians, spies, mobsters, and terrorists. And Red is willing to help catch them all, as long as he continues to work with Elizabeth as his partner.

I knew I was going to like the Blacklist as soon as the 1st previews & it hasn't disappointed me yet! Just when you think you've got a few more pieces of the puzzle...boom! Red pulls the rug right out from under your feet. Having said that, there was that interaction between Red & Lizzie's father that looked like a little piece of the cat was kinda out of the bag that might help answer one looming question.

Not much to add. Great writing, good acting, stellar main characters. Each episode could almost be a stand-alone. Reminds me somewhat of the characters of Alias except in this one he is not killed and a double. And in Alias it was the Roommate who was the double. All in all, though, one amazing season.

This is a keeper. The electricity that flows between Spader and Boone is awesome. Each plot is always a new twist and is totally unpredictable. Every time I think I know whats coming the plot changes and we start all over again. It would be a mistake to cancel this one.

Red has not mentioned me yet but if they cancel this show I may have to re-prioritize my future missions and eliminate those idiots in charge of programming at this station!
But seriously.
James Spader's acting is so awesome in this show and the entire first season had so many twists and turns and at the same time they did a great job of slowly exploring each character's personal story.
Without the typical crap of wasting entire episodes on any one character's immediate past.
Yes, the comment about Spader's acting chops back in Boston Legal rings true. So matter of fact yet you can see the concern for the one person he seems to truly care about more than his own life and safety.
Can't wait till it returns!
Too bad the regular networks can't have 2-3 extra new shows they could air during the summer, say once a month, to make sure people don't forget about a show and to possibly gain new viewers.
That's the advantage cable has, they can show episodes over and over to build up a fan base. If they'd do that with one of the smaller channels they own in the same family, who knows what it would do for other "bubble" shows before they throw in the towel.
Of course, Blacklist is not a bubble show but if they would air every episode again through the summer, who knows where the series would start up ratings wise in the Fall?
Heck, I keep seeing ads for a returning Syfy series and they will be airing every episode back to back before the 2nd season premiere allowing those who may have missed it to get caught up and possibly find new viewers.

In my opinion, one of the best new shows on TV. Seems the role was created for Spader - no one could do it better. NBC - PLEASE KEEP THIS ONE.

Best new drama in years. Has moved to number one on my list passing Castle, NCIS and NCIS Los Angeles. Check with the people before even considering to cancel. Spader is fantastic.
