The Blacklist: Season One product reviews

For decades, ex-government agent Raymond "Red" Reddington (James Spader) has been one of the FBI's most wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as "The Concierge of Crime."

Now, he's mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: He will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, under the condition that he speaks only to Elizabeth "Liz" Keen (Megan Boone), an FBI profiler fresh out of Quantico. For Liz, it's going to be one hell of a first day on the job.

I have loved James Spader since Boston Legal. Without him in this I am honestly not sure how good it would really be. He is an amazing actor and says so much with just a move of his hand or a twinkle of his nose.

More questions than answers, more mysterious than suspenseful, but still a hell of a program. Liz has just been accepted to work at the FBI and on her first day Raymond "Red" Reddington insists he will only deal with her. America's most wanted fugitive, he helps the FBI catch criminals they did not even know existed in fun and exciting ways.

Throughout the show you are wandering what side Red really is on. Is he actually Liz's father and what's going on with Liz's husband?? So many questions and no real answers.

We unfortunately watched via TV3 so had to deal with ads every 5 seconds and the second series has just begun. But if I had the choice would rather of watched via DVD in one weekend. At the end of every episode my husband and I would discuss what just happened and guessed what would happen next.

Although I haven't really gelled with Lizie, as I find her too hard, you still feel for her and I really don't know why she just doesn't point a gun to Red's head and ask what/who he is. Gets rather frustrating at times. If you love crime/action/and no real answers then this is the show for you.

I like a good crime drama and this has this in there for sure, as well as a lot of subterfuge, secrets and enough action and mystery to keep one interested.

Elizabeth Keen has just started her job as an FBI agent and on her very first day she gets the call that changes her life, a highly sought after criminal has surrendered himself to the FBI but will only talk to Liz. By the time the first episode ends we have had a crime to solve, more questions than answers about Red and Liz is left wondering who exactly her husband is. When it comes to the mystery that is Red, we get tidbits dangled in front of us, but no complete answers, and Liz has to deal with both her job and all that entails, Red and the mess he is creating in her life and her falling apart marriage.

Liz is naive at first but grows up rather quickly as things spiral out of control and she finds that she is caught up in a much bigger picture, Red is cocky and manipulative throughout the series and is very much an anti-hero, both are played very well and Spader is brilliant as Red, a role well made for him. The season is very long, it is a full 22 episodes!!!!!! but there is enough difference between the episodes and the bigger picture helps well to keep you interested, if not for the big picture to it all then I probably wouldn't have been interested beyond 3 or 4 episodes but I really want to know the truth behind Liz and Red.

I rather enjoyed this series and have set up MySky to record Season Two as I simply need to know where it is all going from here.
