About this show:
The Blacklist is a crime thriller series featuring Raymond "Red" Reddington (James Spader). Red, a former Navy officer, become an most-wanted criminal who escaped the FBI for decades. One day, Red voluntarily surrenders to the FBI, sharing a list of the most dangerous criminals, and offering his help to arrest these criminals in exchange for immunity. However, he insists on working exclusively with a rookie FBI profiler by the name of Elizabeth Keen. James Spader's performance as a lead actor is impressive as he manages to give his character, Red, an air of mystery and charm that is one of the attractions of The Blacklist. A critic stated that "James Spader is riveting as a criminal-turned-informant, and his presence goes a long way toward making this twisty but occasionally implausible crime procedural compelling."
