Synopsis: Raymond "Red" Reddington, one of the FBI's most wanted fugitives, surrenders at FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C.. He claims the FBI and he have the same interests, that is, getting rid of dangerous criminals and terrorists. Reddington will co-operate, but insists he will speak only to Elizabeth Keen, a rookie FBI profiler. Keen questions Reddington's sudden interest in her, despite his claim she is very special. After the FBI brings down a terrorist he provided information on, Reddington reveals that this terrorist is only the first of many. In the last two decades, he's made a list of criminals and terrorists he believes matter the most; a list the FBI doesn't know exists. Reddington calls it "The Blacklist".

Favorite new show of the past season. Absolutely loved it. Can't wait to revisit the eps because there was so much I know I missed on initial viewing. A little disappointed in the extras, though, we don't have the lengths of each, so perhaps they will make up for the number of extras with those that are there being in-depth.
Spader is great in this, but the show is kind of ridiculous. If it was in the Marvel Universe, it'd make sense. In the real world setting this show takes place in, however, it's not plausible in any way, shape, or form........kind of like almost every movie these days.
