The Blacklist: Season 2 (2014 - 2015)



Critic Consensus: Though The Blacklist flirts with narrative overload, it's held together by James Spader's scenery-eating performance and wildly entertaining action.

I loved Liz's darker path this season because I recognized she was becoming more and more like Raymond Reddington.

I was grossed out, to say the least, and I'm sure that is just what the writers of the show were aiming for, right?

Monday's jam-packed hour belonged to two very important (and very different) women.

There's no peace for Red Reddington - only pieces of peace.

I don't know if it was the fact that we now have several new characters on the show to give it a renewed energy or the fact that they seem to be beefing up the stories for the supporting cast, but it's a welcome thing.

Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone), remains fairly bland.

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of this premiere ... is that while Red was as engaging and creepy-charming as ever, the tone didn't waver when he was away from the action.

This was a pretty good start to the season.

Spader continues to nonchalantly demolish the scenery surrounding him with is pursed lips and blasé delivery. Truly, he is a gifted SOB even if looking at him wearing that trademark hat makes me despair.

Jan 9, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

With such a flamboyant lead in Red and more and more outlandish bad guys, it's felt for a while like The Blacklist wants to be a looser, wilder show than its fairly straight-faced procedural beginnings suggested.
