The Blacklist; Review

The much awaited show “The Blacklist” on air┬ásince September is grabbing all my attention.

A crime drama television created by Jon Bokenkamp, this series promises to entertain the audience with its amazing plot and well written script. The show stars James Spader and Megan Boone as the main characters with┬á┬áDiego Klattenhoff, Ryan Eggold and Harry Lennix as the supporting cast. Spader, who played Alan┬áShore in the Emmy Award winning Boston Legal is back with yet again a great series which promises to be interesting and thrilling. This show has met with critical acclaim from a lot of critics who accentuated SpaderÔÇÖs performance.

The pilot Introduces Raymond ÔÇ£RedÔÇØ Reddington (Spader), a former government agent and one of the FBIÔÇÖs most wanted fugitives who surrenders himself at the FBIÔÇÖs headquarters in Washington DC. He claims to have similar interests in getting rid of dangerous criminals and terrorists by making an offer to FBI to communicate only with Elizabeth Keen( Megan Boone) a rookie FBI agent whose father was supposed to ┬ábe involved in terrorist activities as well. The first season revolves around the mystery of why Reddington wants Keen?┬áReddignton’s information helps FBI to catch a long wanted terrorist, and there are so many others who have not been listed and are considered as non-existent. Reddington also reveals about his hit list which he refers to as THE BLACKLIST which involves the names of the other dangerous criminals and terrorists. Reddington agrees to help FBI to catch them but only if they provide him immunity and agrees to his terms. As the series progresses, the story of Reddington unravels, with twists that involve other characters in the show.

SpaderÔÇÖs performance┬áas a┬ámysterious mastermind criminal is watchable. For those of you who have missed the first season of the series can tune into your TV sets on weekdays at 11 pm on Star world. This show is the one on my bucket list too.
