Critic Reviews for The Blacklist Season 8

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (0)

This premiere felt like the beginning of the end. The powers that be appear to be running out of ideas, and after dropping hints about the series' mythology over the past couple of seasons, it's definitely time for some answers instead of more questions.

Nov 17, 2020 | Rating: 4.3/5 | Full Review…

Once you've turned the lead into a semi-villain you start running out of plot threads. Holding it together are good performances, including James Spade who seems to be so at ease by now as Red.

    Love my man James Spader, (Reddington) but come on Megan Boone, (Elizabeth) character getting on ME, (My) Dang Nerves y'all! Something gotta give with her attitude, this getting old. His & her undying love hate, just kill her off or spice up the boring suspense of is isn't, what the heck!!!

    Season 8 is so disappointing and rediculous that I signed up to Rotten Tomatoes so I could leave a cathartic opinion. I'm watching episode 4 where Keen talks to the accountant and talks about the "balance of power shifting in my direction". Seriously? Absolute tosh. I've watched all previous seasons and I hope season 8 is going to get better otherwise it might be the last. And breathe... :-)

    WHY THE HELL WOULD THEY KILL ONE OF THE GREATEST TV SHOWS OF ALL TIME WITH THIS CRAP SEASON ??!!

    The Blacklist is one of the best long-running crime dramas ever made! Makes me want to see a Blacklist movie.

    This season is even worse than last season. The story line just doesn't make sense. The writers have turned Elizabeth Keen into a horrible character that's really unpleasant to watch and garners zero empathy from the audience. She's just not likable in any way anymore. She uses the people who love her to further her own agenda, she's manipulative, uncaring about anyone else but herself, and reckless, putting their lives at risk for her own gain. Then she abandons her kid.... again. Yuck!!! The only reason I'm hanging on by a thread is because of James Spader, but the writers have really got to pull their heads out, or this series just won't be watchable. I can barely get through it as is.

    Tired, tired, tired!! The Blacklist has jumped the shark. What a sad show this has become. James Spader has created one of the best characters on any show, and the Blacklist writers have killed the show. What drivel is Season 8? And most of Season 7?? Gone are the days of Reddington being two steps ahead of everyone, dishing out his brand of justice immediately and with no grey area. Now??? The FBI is letting an out of control agent chase some family "secret"? WHO CARES???? SOLUTION - KILL OFF "AGENT KEEN"! The show would be so much better for it. Swift justice for betrayal. That's what the show SHOULD come back to. Right now, it's nonsense for Season 8.

    Absolutely dreadful. What happened? Liz is such an idiot and made the worst decisions throughout the seasons, meets her mother for 5 mn joints her and becomes a vilain and wants to take on Reddington? Please... Personally, i enjoyed the season in which she was dead, less non sense. The ‘secrets' were fine while they were in the background, but frankly a whole season of that? Not sure if i can take much more of this. If the writers read this...37% approval means this is not the way to go. Such a disappointment.

    What the heck is going on??? Liz outsmarting Red? In your dreams - or no actually in the writer's dreams. And yes, they suck. The team is made to be dim wits that get outsmarted at every turn. The FBI mind you just can't seem to hold their feelings in check. Stick to them teaming up against the real bad guys. I hope someone reads this and can still salvage my James Spader show.

    In seson 8 the show is a shitshow izs like the writters had a stroke and a new one replaced him soo bad Kil liz REDDINGTON SHOUD KILL HER

    Until ep. 3 every thing is fine. From there - it is a disaster! The FBI agents are suddenly act like vigilantes and flushed their ideological base that made them so likable. Characters like Harold or Donald, who you could predict theirs actions and thinking start to act like f**king teenagers! Liz is a pure failure - in every aspect: acting, writing, personality and her contribution to the plot. It's just frustrating that you can't bond or identify with the main character. Feels like a bone in the throat. The entire series has no justification to exist except for its debt to us: 1. The Story of red, the secondary (or even main) plot. 2. Killing Liz. Until then, the acting of James and some rare moments of good writing for him are the only things I can comfort myself.
