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.

Weird choice "killing" off Tom. I put it in quotes because maybe he isn't really dead. I really don't get it either way. Either they killed off one of the better characters who had an unresolved storyline or they are doing their third or fourth faked death in the last couple years. That would be overkill unless they keep him off the show for at least 3 years to give people time to forget they have already over-done the fake death angle. Perhaps this is punishment for his failed spinoff? Dunno but no matter what the move is here, the Plopster doesn't think it's a good one.

So disappointed they killed off TOM (Ryan Eggold) in last episode...He and his secret life were the most interesting aspect of this show. The FBI agents Navi, Ressler, are good. ELIZABETH is a big zero, she doesn't look or act like an FBI agent, but rather a lost soul always pouting. If you notice, the crimes are always solved by the OTHER FBI agents and RED, and she does nothing but complain about people not being fully honest with her, etc. They should have killed off Elizabeth and replaced her with a female FBI agent who looks and acts the part and who would have a romance with TOM. James Spader is terrific. Need to REBOOT this show.

The episode "Grayson Blaise (No. 37)". Is it me, or was this oddly familiar (in both plot and the TV music soundtrack) compared to 1999's "The Thomas Crown Affair"? Red stole a painting, just as Brosnan's character did in "Thomas Crown". There was no attempt to duplicate the movie for sure, but everything about it struck me as kind of wild. I enjoyed it.

I LOVE THIS SHOW!! I will admit it was a little off the original premise with everyone running around spastic about Liz, (I was actually okay with her leaving the show), but now I'm glad she didn't and the show is still fabulous!! I love Red, and hope next season will get back to actually bringing down the "Blacklisters!" and less Liz drama.

THird season was great, but most of this fourth season was wasted on Elizabeth's baby constantly getting tossed around and endless crying over its whereabouts and safety.
The January episodes have been much better now that the baby story is out of the way. Get back to the show's original premise of chasing spies and bad guys, let Tom Keen be an operative not a Daddy figure.

As a character, Red is great. Unfortunately I think this show has jumped the shark.

I've watched this show faithfully since its inception, and it is one of my favorite shows. HOWEVER, like many other shows (i.e. "Fringe") it has 'strayed' from its original premise: Shady, mysterious Raymond Reddington helping the FBI solve a "Black List" case and find and catch (or kill) a weekly 'bad guy'. That was a GREAT show. Unfortunately, it has slowly morphed into a ridiculous group of sub-plots, centering around Liz, which run through the entire season. As much as I love this show, and as popular as it was in it's first two seasons, I can make a prediction: If it doesn't return to its original premise/format with FBI Agent Elizabeth (instead of Soap Opera Elizabeth) back with the FBI, and catching 'weekly bad guys' with the aid of Red, this once-GREAT show's days are numbered!
