I think Ray is her Dad, or something like a Godfather?
Really like this new series, it has the action and thrill.
The husband is either CIA or has some connection to Red
@Boyd Crowder - I'm not sure that you can quantify FBI Agent Elizabeth Keen as a total rookie. She's got (according to dialog) 4 years of experience. She just graduated Quantico a month ago as a profiler. I assume her previous four years experience was in the field.
I liked this show, I hope that writing stays fresh and intense.
Being commercial tv , I'm not expecting pay cable drama ...the chick is hot and I'm a Spader fan . But the chick came on way too badddd azz for a rookie, and that was tedious to watch at times ....as was the sugar/spice scenes with the hubby ....
Shoot til you miss probation !
Well, it's never going to be easy recording everything I want to watch until I finally a the new TIVO that records four shows at one; then and only then will I be satisfied. Last night, I had to eliminate "Sleepy Hollow" to watch The Blacklist. I'm certainly not going to pass up an opportunity to watch James Spader in anything...and though I found his "new look" a little disturbing (and perhaps that's the point),nothing was disappointing about James Spader in the first hour of the Blacklist.The new show lived up to all the hype and Liz was a pleasant surprise as a rookie agent suddenly thrown into a dangerous, complicated situation on her first day...and she was late! I think she got the hint when the helicopter landed in her backyard and she knew her first day was not going to be a walk in the park. This episode should have been called, Surprise Party, for the number of surprises pushed upon first-time viewers, one after the other. The biggest one may have been "the husband's involvement in more than even Liz was aware, and the scene at home where Zemani surprised Liz with her husband bound, gagged and bleeding profusely. Talk about a bad first day at work...and for all she knew at that point, her husband was an innocent victim of this ruthless terrorist who thought nothing of jamming his Bowie knife into his leg, just to get a little information that she didn't know. Earlier that morning they were talking babies and adoption and then the picture changed dramatically to one of life or death. Spader is an interesting actor, but I, too, hope that he finds more of those quirky nuances that aren't so reminiscent of his work on Boston Legal. But we shall see and I'm hooked so far and eagerly waiting for the next episode. There's a lot about The Blacklist that struck me as unique from all the other crime shows and I hope that the writers can stick with that and maintain the energy and roguish style of the pilot. Things will either get even better from here or slow down into the same ole same ole...but as a lover of television, I certainly hope not! No, this was far from terrible and if you missed it, you'll need to find it and watch this exciting and important intro to the season. I think it's going to be a good one!
I absolutely loved this! It had twists and turns and a compelling story that kept me drawn in for the entire hour. I'm convinced that Elizabeth is actually Red's daughter; it would explain why he's so obsessed with her. I also did not see the bit about her husband at the end coming until right before it happened. They opened up enough mysteries to keep me tuning in next week.
missed ti last night - watching Castle - will get it soon. Like james spader in most shows, and this looks like it has potential
Haven't watched it yet. Looking forward to it as I love to watch James Spader in most things.
This was a pretty good pilot.
I knew I would like the show as it is one of the few new shows I am going to watch this season. However if H50 was still on CBS at the same time I may not have watched this show.
I want to know what Tom is hiding, is he a con man, is he CIA?
I think Ray is her father but then that may be way to obvious so then I was thinking he may have killed her mother OR he may be Tom's father.
I can not wait to see how this season progresses!
I really liked the show and can't wait to see where it goes. I think he is her real father. James Spader is great and looks like he is having fun. I liked Liz but that wig she had on was driving me crazy. I did not see the thing with her husband. That was a shock, to see if he really is a spy or if "Red" is putting doubuts in Liz head. Loved it when she stabbed him in the neck with the pen.
Everything was very predictible. There was no jaw dropping moments. It is beyong obvious that he is her father.
