Critic Reviews for The Blacklist: Season 3

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (3)

Its season three premiere, "The Troll Farmer," is a stellar debut and return to form for a show that struggled a majority of last season to find its footing and purpose.

I'm not saying the newly invigorated Blacklist has become "Viewers Most Wanted", but so far I like.

Season Three of The Blacklist upped the show's game with slightly more adventurous writing that made the show a more consistent bet from week to week.

Last season, there were many indications that The Blacklist was running on fumes. The Troll Farmer offers hope that the tank is finally refilled.
