Season 6 of The Blacklist was a wild ride from start to finish. We had the fallout from Liz’s big betrayal of Red, a new government conspiracy leading all the way up to the President, Mozhan Marno’s exit from the show (we’ll miss you always Samar) and the big revealRead More →

The Blacklist came in hot with the penultimate episode of season 6, and it’s all leading to an explosive season finale. Red and the Task Force finally uncovered the plot against the United States orchestrated by Anna McMahon, taking possession of the dossier that detailed the group’s plan to haveRead More →

So it finally happened. We now know Red’s true identity and why he’s been keeping it from Liz for all these years. The Red we’ve always known is really a man named Ilya, Katarina Rostova’s lover. Ilya changed his identity to that of Raymond Reddington in order to keep KatarinaRead More →

In The Blacklist‘s “The Third Estate” the Task Force took on a group of criminals going after the children of America’s richest families, but there was a bit of a plot twist. The children of these families weren’t actually being kidnapped, they were faking their own kidnappings to get backRead More →

When Red gets betrayed by someone close to him he reacts violently, and unfortunately Smokey Putnam was on the receiving end of his wrath. Smokey, played by Michael Aronov, has been one of the best recurring side characters on The Blacklist. Always good for a bit of comic relief, he’sRead More →

Well Blacklisters, we can all stop wondering now that we’ve heard the news, The Blacklist has been renewed for season 7! The original cast is set to return, so a whole new series of Red’s antics with the Task Force is on the horizon. We have yet to see whatRead More →

Well, for one minute there it looked like Red might have finally saved himself, almost flawlessly executing a brilliant prison escape plan, but leave it to Liz to mess that up too. Steps away from Dembe’s helicopter and freedom, Red was stopped by prison guards who had only been alertedRead More →

This week’s episode of The Blacklist,┬átitled “General Shiro,” was one of the weakest the show has produced in its six season run. The story barely moved forward, we had to suffer another appearance from Glenn the DMV employee (one of the show’s most irritating characters) and there were bugs. LotsRead More →

So Red’s trial is over, and surprise surprise the court didn’t rule in his favor. Red is now facing the death penalty, all thanks to Liz. What’s so cold blooded about this is that Liz knew exactly what to point the police towards in her anonymous tip to make sureRead More →

Never has it been more apparent than in┬áThe Blacklist episode “The Pawnbrokers” that James Spader is the driving force behind the show. It was an incredibly engaging episode and that’s all thanks to him. There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing an actor absolutely command a room and that’s what JamesRead More →

I think we were all hoping there would be some loophole to get Red out of police custody without something catastrophic happening, but it’s looking more and more like that won’t be the case. For a minute it seemed like the judge might rule in Red’s favor, thanks to CooperRead More →

The season 5 finale reveal that the Red we know isn’t actually the real Raymond Reddington left no room for doubt that it would be a serious game changer. Personally, I still don’t understand why Red’s true identity is such a big deal. No matter who he was in theRead More →

Well, Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman is finally complete. In the finale, Jimmy got his law license back after he put on one of the best performances of his life to convince the bar association that he was “sincere” and considered Chuck an influence on his desire to become aRead More →

The penultimate episode of ‘Better Call Saul’s’ season 4 promised to be emotional, but watching Kim and Jimmy fight was more painful than I thought it would be, due to some absolutely incredible acting by Bob Odenkirk and Rhea Seehorn. It was a bit like watching Cap and Tony fightRead More →

So, last week I argued that Kim wants to be involved in Jimmy’s schemes, and this week she definitely proved it. Episode seven ended with Kim telling Jimmy that she had another way to win Huell’s case that wouldn’t involve Jimmy doing something illegal. Last night, we got to seeRead More →
