The Blacklist

Anyone catch the pilot? I love James Spader as a tv actor... And so far this show is awesome. Havent had a great FBI show since fringe, so hoping this show fills the void!

Ugh the pilot was all over the place: very confusing with so many different things happening all the time. The ending was good and made me want to watch the next episode.

It was decent. Spader was great but the rest of the cast was pretty bland.

By the way, what the hell was up with the two seconds of a hard rock cover of "99 Problems" at the end?

So the husband is a secret agent. Also, the chick looks like Ellen Page.

The first episode definitely drew my interest. I'll watch it again... I just hope it doesn't go the route of Alcatraz, where they chase down someone new every single episode. Much bigger fan of longer story arcs with villains that you can get to know.

This would literally be the lamest plot twist in TV history.

Not sure about lame but it seems too obvious.

basically it seems to be a standard 24/ncis style show with spader carrying it.

i'm not sure spader's enough to make it survive.

I'd say Spader has enough talent to carry even the ********* of shows. The office was literally falling apart without Michael Scott, and Robert California brought it all back together.

Comedy, drama, whatever, James Spader is epic, and I'll be watching this show for some epic moments which I know for sure Spader will deliver, but probably some surprises from the rest of the cast as well.

It's about time there's been a great Sunday show on network again, hope this show turns out to be great!

Spader is basically doing a bad-guy version of Alan Shore (without the lecherous innuendo), which I'll happily watch every week.

I will say I find the female lead a bit lacking. It's probably a good thing she has to go up against Spader every week as he's a strong enough presence to carry her. Probably by design.

Liked it enough to watch again and think I will end up absolutely loving it in the next 4-5 episodes, or absolutely hate it and stop watching before the first season is over.

Really enjoyed the pilot, even though we'd seen pretty much the whole thing in previews. My big worry is how well they'll be able to deal with dragging out his true motivations. A great part of the show is wondering what he's up to, but how long can that last?

One thing I thought was pretty weak was how hard they implied that she is his daughter. Hopefully that is just a red herring.

That certainly was the "WTF" moment of the pilot episode. So random.

she can't be the daughter he left because she(the agent) mentioned her. Could she be illegitimate.....maybe but I don't think they are going to go there. I wonder though if they are going to make the husband one of his men who he sent to get close to her? I wonder if he knew her father/mother and promised to look after her as some sort of debt?

Thought the pilot was fantastic. Fully expecting to be let down from here out.

Well, TV shows do have a tendency to make **** up as they go along, take prison break, the mother is basically dug up from the grave and turned into the main villain, theres no way she wasn't dead and shes brought to life by some writers throwing **** at a wall, then it turns out they're not really brothers when the creators said they actually picked the actors because they looked like brothers and the mothers explanation is something like "haven't you ever wondered why you had different colored eyes" or some bs

my memory is failing me but so many wtf moments on the show. I would not be surprised if they only wrote like half a season for that show before they ran out of ideas. This show seems like one of those.

Second episode was a bit better than the first, but really, no one in the Fed is the least bit bothered that Red just killed someone?
