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

News & Interviews for The Blacklist: Season 2
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.
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.
If this fast paced action and story keep it up, then I'm all in for what should be another great season of The Blacklist.
And so the second season of The Blacklist begins. Did anyone else miss the phenomenon that is James Spader as Raymond "Red" Reddington?
