Right now The Blacklist is on its mid-season break. It is in its second season and stars James Spader, Megan Boone, Diego Klattenhoff and Harry Lennix in what I think is some of the better entertainment on TV this year, Sons of Anarchy and The Walking Dead not withstanding.
Red (Spader) is the ultimate international criminal who has turned himself into the FBI and delivering them one mega criminal at a time, but it turns out, he is using the FBI to do some of his own dirty work getting rid of the competition. Yet Red has so many angles and enemies that it keeps you guessing.
Part of his terms of working with the FBI is that he only work with Agent Elizabeth Keen (Booth). And we don’t know why he wanted to work with her or how they are connected. Yet.
Like I said, angles that keep you guessing.
This is one of the shows I will catch live each week and find the story changing up just enough to keep it refreshing and engaging.
But I digress… I did mention a new night for the show.
With The Blacklist having aired its mid-season finale, its Monday night time slot will be getting filled by the Katherine Heigl starrer called State of Affairs. The Blacklist is taking a three month break and when it returns in February of 2015, it will be on a new night.
NBC will be moving The Blacklist to Thursdays when it returns in February. So keep your DVRs dialed in or your eye on your schedule for that change.
