Do you and your spouse agree on which shows to watch on television? In my house, there is an all out war. I love the medical dramas, cheesy chick flicks and the made for TV movies. My DH, on the other hand, loves sports, cooking shows and science shows. Although I try to be interested in his shows and he tries (loosely!) to be interested in mine, we have never found a show we both love until NOW; #TheBlacklist on Global TV.
#TheBlacklist, starring James Spader, debuted on September 23, 2013. When my husband and I saw the previews we causally mentioned to each other that we should include it in our Monday night TV line up. What I didn’t realize was it was a show that would end the war of the remote! From the first episode, we were hooked!
What is the #Blacklist?
The Blacklist is a suspenseful drama full of twists and turns. Just when you think you know a character, the show throws you for a loop! The main character is Raymond ‘Red’ Reddington, played by James Spader. Once a government agent, Reddington is now one of the FBI’s Most Wanted fugitives. He is cunning, deceitful and extremely smart. His connection and knowledge of the criminal world is vast and unending! The series begins with Reddington mysteriously surrendering to the FBI with the intentions to help them catch high-profile terrorists. He makes one bizarre condition to his surrender, he will only work with Elizabeth “Liz” Keen (Megan Boone), a brand new detective to the FBI.
Secrets are the key to this show. Everyone has them! Red knows the secrets to Liz’s past, Liz’s husband, Tom (Ryan Eggold) is a double agent who’s target is Liz, and Liz is trying to discover them all while advancing as an FBI agent! Each week, we are treated to a new case, introduced to a new high-profile terrorists and capture a glimpse of the forbidden secret.
When Monday night rolls around, DH and I cuddle on the couch, electronics are shut down and we become completely absorbed in trying to uncover the secrets of #theBlacklist.
This coming Monday, The Blacklist returns with a new episode “His Secret is out..”. What clue will be given this week?
Catch #TheBlacklist on Global TV at 10:00pm EST on Monday evenings, you’ll be glad you did!
