Each episode of The Blacklist focuses on a different criminal from Reddington’s “blacklist.” While the episodes can stand alone, the series shines as a continuous story where the audience is kept guessing as to the connection between Raymond and Liz, and whether Liz’s life is actually as simple as she lets on. The series is a fast paced ride with constant twists and turns that keep viewers guessing.
I first tuned in to The Blacklist because the role of a mischievous criminal mastermind seemed tailor made for James Spader. His portrayal of Raymond is a pleasure to watch, and Megan Boone excels as the straight-laced rookie FBI profiler pulled into his world of international crime.
Search the VBPL catalog for The Blacklist. Fans of this television series might also enjoy 24 or Person of Interest. Also be sure to check out James Spader’s performance on Boston Legal.
