The Blacklist

The BlacklistStarringJames Spader, Megan Boone, Diego KlattenhoffHarry LennixRyan EggoldAlan Alda

Directed by: Full list on IMDB

Written by: As above

Year: 2013-2014

Plot: Gourmand, savant, cynic extraordinaire, modern Moriarty, in short Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader) surrenders himself and his services to the FBI, under one condition – that his liaison with the bureau be the young, crook-legged profiler named Elizabeth “Liz” Keen (Megan Boone). Together they eliminate criminals far less savory than the mesmerizing Red.

Pros: Oh, how the once cute have grown fat, bold and counterintuitively seductive. Hip hip Mr. Spader!

ConsMegan Boone, oh Megan Boone – you have the emotional range of a goldfish. Script is not always tight, as you’d expect from a series written by more than 20 people. The Big Mystery of why would a successful consulting criminal work with the FBI is actually pretty transparent.
