The Enemy Within: Season 1 Reviews

February 27, 2019
No charm. No camaraderie or sexual tension. It's just familiar faces regurgitating dry, boring dialogue, as though reading from cue cards.

Just go back and watch The Blacklist from the beginning. You'll be watching a much more entertaining show.

Cliched crime thriller has some gore, great actors.

Familiarity can be fun, I don't dispute this. But life is far too short-and the TV landscape far too crowded-to play spy games I've already played dozens of times before.

It isn't the worst in the network's line of dramas featuring generic intelligence operatives forced to team up with morally and ethically compromised partners best kept in containment.

Carpenter and Chestnut solidly play their roles, but Enemy Within doesn't crackle the way The Blacklist did in early episodes. There's nothing particularly special going on here, and it's hard to muster the enthusiasm to say much more than that.

If the show can find more unique ways of harnessing its star's power going forward, it might find a more interesting groove. Until then, "The Enemy Within" will remain more of a shrug than a must watch.

Notwithstanding an air of naturalism, it can be silly. Some scenes are staged only because of how they'll play on camera, not because they make any sense.
