Thread: NBC's The Blacklist

  1. #1

    Default NBC's The Blacklist// Spinoff: Redemption

    Was searching for a thread of the series but didn't find



    It's about a one of the Top Ten's most wanted fugitives surrending himself to the FBI with a deal of sharing info about all the criminals and terrorists, with two strict conditions about the deal.

    It's the most violent tv series i had ever seen. Anyone watched it?

    Those watching Redemption are welcome too!

    Well I've watched it all up til now, but now that it's Alan Alda-less I won't be as enthralled.

    Awesome Show and James Spader performance in this is brilliant . He is the star of the show by far .

    Looking forward to the rest of season 2 especially after that major event in episode 8 .

    It's indeed a loss when departs an actor with deep voice of a show. Alan will be remembered and flashbacked because is amazing.

    The first season is wonderful and outstanding but the second is above the average for plot sake, James' Red looks like a supporting character, and slowly the other ones a getting a grasp of reality and the attitude to confront it.

    If it wasn't for James Spader, I think I would have been done with this show after the first few episodes.

    I don't really find myself surprised or really invested in the characters or plots. I only get captivated with how Spader portrays his character. That also hurts the other characters as well. He is on such a different level that when he isn't in a scene, I really don't care and just want to get back to the Reddington bits.

    The constant mistakes and plain incompetence of the F.B.I. is really jarring as well.

    Also the habit of foreshadowing by lingering on certain aspects for seconds kills suspense. I get that subtlety may not work so well because few people rewatch a season after a reveal to see if there were hints sprinkled throughout in the background, but maybe a scene every few episodes and not every episode would make the suspense more appealing and not tired by the time it is revealed.

    Spoiler:
    Just in case people didn't finish season one... the whole thing with Tom was so annoying. It was like "C'mon, get to it already." They made it so obvious every episode to when the reveal happened, it was pretty much "No shit, don't care anymore."

    Yeah, James Spader and his African bodyguard are the only reason I watch this show. Their stuff is gold, everything else? Meh.

    So it seems like something about that "fire" will be revealed next episode .

    Also Red has always been emotional towards Keen so him losing his shit in the next episode will be really cool to see .

    Edit : On a side-note , the next episode will air this thursday so really happy about that .

    I enjoy the show too. I'm glad to see there's final a thread for it. I've also been watching from the beginning as well.

    James Spader is obviously the bast part of the show, but I think the other actors do a decent job too. It's more entertaining than a lot of the other NBC dramas, at least that's my opinion.

    Ron Perlman was a great guess star for the past 2 episodes.

    Finally could catch up, amazing chapters except Deer Hunter. The one in Uzbekistan was outstanding.

    Liz is so annoying, want to slap her mouth sometimes.

    So, I thought the end of season 2 was interesting. It was nice to see them do something different.

    I can see season 3 being the last. I think it would be interesting to make it a 3 act show in a sense.

    But no, this is TV these days... they're gonna milk it as long as they can.

    What do you mean "these days"? The economics of the TV industry have literally never changed.

    There is no possible way that season 3 is going to be the last of this show.

    The audience call for Jacob/Tom's return, useless to me. I agreed with that forecast.
