The Blacklist Summary


Raymond "Red" Reddington, one of the FBI's most wanted fugitives, surrenders in person at FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C. He claims that he and the FBI have the same interests: bringing down dangerous criminals and terrorists. In the last two decades, he's made a list of criminals and terrorists that matter the most but the FBI cannot find because it does not know they exist. Reddington calls this "The Blacklist". Reddington will co-operate, but insists that he will speak only to Elizabeth Keen, a rookie FBI profiler.

In all of my years of watching television, this is the best opening scene I have ever witnessed in any show or movie. It is of epic proportions and the most enticing hook I have ever come upon.

I'll bet James Spader will be awesome as Ultron in "The Avengers: Age of Ultron".

In that first 1:30 I knew this was something special. When he kneels on the FBI seal in the floor, and locks his fingers behind his head...well, that was my THUD! moment. I was hooked from that second. Hasn't changed a bit since then.

At  the point of 1:28 I knew I was hooked, hopelessly, and deeply. I've never looked back, and have loved every minute of it!

One of my favorite television shows ever! No wonder James Spader was cast as Ultron. He makes a TERRIFIC antihero gray hat type.

I cannot stop watching this trailer. I LOVE THIS SHOW AND JAMES SPADER!!! I wish I would have watched it much sooner, but starting with Season 1. This is absolutely the best show I've ever seen and James Spader really brings so much charisma to Raymond Reddington.
