The Blacklist – season 1

The Blacklist is a crime thriller TV series. Eight seasons.

Yet I’d never even heard of it.

Yes, it’s silly escapist TV. Very good silly escapist TV.

Great music. Some interesting cinematography.

Of course you have to suspend disbelief. It’s about as realistic as a Road Runner cartoon. 😀

James Spader is excellent as Raymond “Red” Reddington, a former U.S. Navy officer turned high-profile criminal who voluntarily surrenders to the FBI after eluding capture for decades.

… he has a list of the most dangerous criminals in the world … compiled over the years, and is willing to inform on their operations in exchange for immunity from prosecution.

However, he insists on working exclusively with rookie FBI profiler Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone). …

Kiefer Sutherland was offered the role first. Not surprising. It reminds me a bit of 24.
