Do yourself a favor and add the show to your own blacklist.

Some people might be wondering: why do we need a Blacklist spinoff? I'm one of those fans that finds Tom's backstory intriguing and after watching this first episode, I definitely want to find out more. It also was fast-paced and a lot of fun. I'm hooked.

This formulaic but well thought-out series offers all the plot twists and turns the Blacklist franchise is known for.

Mar 3, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

We've arrived at a pretty satisfying endpoint that could potentially propel us into more, hopefully better, seasons.

Between them, the three actors might have enough brute-force charisma to match just one James Spader. I wouldn't bet on it, though.

Audience Reviews for The Blacklist: Redemption: Season 1

    Loved this spin-off, wish I could watch more! It was exciting and action packed. I didn't realise how ay times I held breath until I started breathing again.

    I found this show a little broken, from the inexplicable inability for a mother to NOT recognize her own son when a father could, to the sheer ruthlessness both parents are willing to use against him. I don't know who's the good guy here. Tom Keen isn't really even the good guy here.

    Little bit of backstory to Blacklist when Blacklist was on hiatus
  • Apr 08, 2017
    Good show but not as good as the original blacklist

    Insert generic TV action show here. That's what this feels like. They got rid of the wittiness, the captivating love story, and everything else that makes these shows watchable, and focused strictly on the action. Scenes regularly consist of two lines of dialogue followed by a mad dash to stop the next group of bad guys from doing something. They sprinkle in about 3 minutes of Tom's backstory per episode. I'm out.

    Just slightly better than Scorpion, as others have said very formulaic. Not intriguing, at least not yet. I will continue watching for a couple more shows but so far not excited at all. Frankly I expected better.

    This format is not going to work. They show should emulate "The Backlist" instead of some lame ripoff of "Oceans Eleven" or a bad episode of the original Mission Impossible series. CHANGE THE FORMAT QUICKLY and it might survive, but otherwise this won't last long....

    A collection of caper clichés. It just shows how important James Spader is to the concept. Without him, it turns into a waste of time.
