Critics Consensus

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.

  • Feb 09, 2022
    Fantastic and fun. Love Spader's interpretation of the character.
  • Jan 11, 2022
    This show is great, season one is so smart and we'll done, nicely filmed, the best of actors , and one poor wig.
  • Oct 25, 2021
    I basically turned my back on network TV years ago. All crap either targeting old people or should be lifetime movies. I was wrong to ignore this. Great stuff. Spader is brilliant.
  • Jul 31, 2021
    It's not so bad. Good to pass the time. BUT : It's full of cliché, and déja vu, you can guess everything that will happen long before it occurs. A lot of script aberrations... how can you receive a missile in the back, everything ends up in flames completely exploded annnnd next scene, he (won't tell who) is in a helicopter without a scratch ??? And it's just one example.
  • Jul 29, 2021
    It's the only thing I can find to watch that I'm interested in. True it is really the bad guy of the week TV series. But there is an under current story between the heroine of the story and her husband who may or may not be a bad guy, deceiving her
  • May 31, 2021
    One of the best show's ever. Definitely worth watching. This season was amazing.
  • Apr 12, 2021
    Is red her dad? Is he not? Who knows? Watch 5 more seasons and you still wont have the answer. Every episode is the same thing over and over again. It's like the inuyasha of crime.
  • Apr 11, 2021
    It's the most well-written show on TV. The one-liners are so good... I'm studying writing and I'm using them as the model of greatness to which I aspire. So often, a line from the show would make a great t-shirt, or even a poster. That's happened far more often than I can remember. And of course, like anything starring James Spader, the quality of the acting is superb.
  • Mar 14, 2021
    Excellent, exciting & full of possibilities.
  • Feb 16, 2021
    Full of twists, and mystery 🤍 i just love the whole gang of Blacklist. So street smart.
