This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I don't have any idea why I watch this show. I find it extremely dry, but am invested in wanting to know where they will go with (not) Reddington and Katarina Rostova. Expand

James Spader is just wonderful, the music is really good, and the story/storylines are strong/interesting. But Megan Boone is only decent at best and by Season 6 is absolutely terrible. And these are the WORST FBI agents imaginable. TheJames Spader is just wonderful, the music is really good, and the story/storylines are strong/interesting.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. James Spader is superlitive in the show. He deserves a 10, but unfortunately he comes with Meagan Boone who adds nothing to the show, hence the 5 score. I still watch it because of Spader, but in season 8 I may stop. While Spader is able to convey the charisma of a ruthless criminal, Boone wallows trying to depict the dual sides of her personality. She is transforming into Reddington but without the somewhat screwed moral compass he follows. She has murdered, betrayed her friends, lied, almost killed 2 plane loads of people, allowed Reddington to murder a surrogate, orchestrated the release of a mass murderer and yet her colleagues all want to forgive her as she is basically a good person who seems to have a temporary lack of judgement. She has brought her child into this incredibly dangerous situation, yet we are to believe she is a good mom. What does this woman have to do for them to realize she is a piece of garbage. All this because she wants to know a secret and avenge the death of her mother who abandoned her and she got to know for about 2 weeks. I believe the show is to mimic the transformations of Walter White and Jessie in Breaking Bad, but Boone does not possess the charisma or acting ability of these other actors and makes the show almost unwatchable. I really just want her gone.

It is too bad as the Blacklist has the potential to be a great show.

Season 9: Kind of like egg whites without the yolk. Hopefully "The Blacklist" ends this year so James Spader may put his outstanding acting talents to better use.
