- I know How Season 2 ends5 star

This season kept me going. Its fun to listen to Reddington's monologs and the story is pretty amazing. Still I'm not sure if I want to watch all of Season 2 because I saw Vic and Sheriff Longmire kill that seriously bad dude that Reddington let get away in season 1 over in Wyoming. Which I'm sure would be a surprise if you didn't know about it, because this show never seems to get any farther west than Arlington, VA.

- Blacklist5 star

I knew when I saw James Spader as the star it would be great and it has been fantastic. Beyond my expectations. The last time I was riveted to my TV was when Dallas was on. This is so much better. I didn’t know any of the other actors but I sure do now. The best group of people I have ever seen work together. Cynthia Powell

- Amazing5 star

Absolutely amazing show. I don't know if anything will ever compare. Love it.

- Mojtaba haddadi5 star

I watching the black list It's perfect

- One Charismatic Character Can’t Save This Show2 star

Watch a few episodes of this show and you will probably be fascinated (Jealous?) of how utterly “In Control” Spader’s character is. Wouldn’t we all like to be that powerful? But not even Jesus in the Bible exercised the kind of wildly perfect timing we see in Reddington. Everything just unfolds perfectly for him, and he always knows exactly what to to say and do. And no human being can do that. The other major problem with this show is one I have with many other shows and movies: Folks, you can’t have a machine battle on a bridge in N.Y. or D.C. featuring huge explosions and mass death without it drawing attention for miles around. And after such a battle, you don’t just act like “the show’s over” and 10 seconds later you’re staring into space looking dramatically pensive. It’s just wrong to write these stories that have nothing to do with the way law enforcement could or would ever behave. I grew up inside the beltway, and my parents both worked in D.C. Nothing like you see in this TV ever happened in terms of car chases or gun battles, apart from the 911 attacks. Maybe all really good stories have already been written.

- Good Plot4 star

The storyline is very intriguing, but also very rushed and slightly unrealistic. The FBI is not nearly as stupid as they seem to be without some super criminal's help. Also why does Agent Cooper's only role seem to be barking out blatantly obvious and stupid commands? I do love Spader though. The visual effects are atrocious. For instance, no private jet flies so low to the ground. If a house were to explode in a residential area, or a plane were to fall out of the sky, the damage would be exponentially greater. That said, the special effects are cheesy and hardly realistic. Despite these hiccups, the story is very well written and I can't wait for more episodes.

- Love it!5 star

Just discovered this show recently and I thought I give it a shot because James Spader ... I wasn't disappointed; he is just an amazing actor. Some of the visual effects are rather "cheap" but I still give it a 5 stars because James Spader's performance makes up for it. By the way ... is it just me or does agent Keen's husband look like Edward Snowden?

- Silence of the Bland2 star

NBC trying to go all gritty and edgy and cable, and mostly failing. Without Spader doing his Hannibal Lecter schtick and some excellent guest stars, there'd be very little to recommend about it. The rest of the cast, especially the young woman doing the Jodie Foster to Spader's Lecter, are totally bland and dull tv-level actors. The writers steal from every playbook they could get their hands on. Some episodes are just too dopey and preposterous to watch, and even the best aren't very well written. Most revolve around (a) viewers suspending an awful lot of disbelief and (b) FBI professionals acting like morons. Since we've all figured out the young woman's relationship to Spader by the end of the pilot, that side-arc, like the one about her husband, isn't exactly riveting. It's okay for lite entertainment if you switch off your credibility filter, but it's no biggie.

- Cost: Season Pass vs Per Episode1 star

Why must I pay ~$65 for Season 1 (per episode cost), after I go above the $24.99 Season Pass price point? It costs ~$30 to buy on BluRay, yet iTunes will not let me buy a Season Pass now and instead wants me to pay $65, twice RRP! I don’t understand the reasoning/maths behind such a pricing structure, either the cost of the season is $25 or $65. It’s also evident that in this situation, once you have exceeded the Season Pass amount, is inexplicably irreversible. At the very least, iTunes should build in a warning saying that Season Pass will be unavailable after if you proceed with the purchase of this episode, God knows iTunes have an inordinate number of pop-up windows at point of purchase regarding far more trivial matters, so what’s one more? This conduct is arbitrary, opportunistic and tantamount to a penalty. Poor form iTunes, please revise this practice.

- Amazing!5 star

James Spader is absolutely amazing in this show. The show is addictive...you will find yourself watching episode after episode. Great story line, keeps you asking questions (in a good way), and not a cheesy criminal drama like other shows recently. Highly suggest this show to anyone!

- LOVE!5 star

Totally addicted!

- Outsanding5 star

i love this show i never watched cause it was something my grandmother watched finally watched one episode and i was hooked!

- Addictive5 star

The best show ever. It is so addicting

- James Spader. its all you really can say4 star

The Blacklist is far from a 5-star drama. That being said, its a solid 4-star drama because of one actor, James Spader. He is chilling, viscerating, and chew up the dialogue with his excellent portrayal of criminal informant Raymond Reddington. The entire season was a bit scattered but the fact that they chose to leave it mysterious and mostly unanswered was understandable considering its a hit show and will run on for some time. The show has some great actions scenes and episodes that really stick out from the rest of the pack. Give it a watch. You won’t regret it, I assure you that.

- Bait and switch? What's up with iTunes?1 star

Seems after I downloaded the free pilot of this allegedly discounted last season, my return to the Apple store resulted in a higher price for the season, and the same price as season 2. Yet it is still listed as a "discounted" season. Doesn't add up, Apple! Are we being spot marketed with higher prices after showing interest? This is the second time I experienced this phenomena here, should I see if it is happening at Google or Amazon?

- Don't know whose fault it is1 star

These episodes are all awesome ! I just don't understand why does it take so long to play the episodes on iTunes. They keep playing reviews and commentaries but it takes for ever to run the actual episode :( either play them or leave us alone !

- Best Show5 star

This show is beyond amazing! Keeps me guessing and entertained the entire time. Definitely recommend it.

- Best show in 20145 star

What a great show!

- My favorite5 star

I love it. I can't wait for season 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9..,

- Answers Lead to Questions5 star

So far, I love it! Spader is excellent as Red Reddington, the characters are reasonably well developed over the course of season one, and while I enjoy certain episodes more than others the writing was well done in each episode. What I like most about this show (besides Spader and his character Red) is how everything relates and fits together, and just when you think you figured something out, you're thrown a curveball and now have more questions than ever. There's almost no limit to what can happen. It's that element of the unknown, and Red's humor, that keep me coming back for more.

- Awesome Show5 star

Hope they keep it going!

- The Blacklist5 star

In the past several weeks the show has become increasingly more interesting; the storyline more exciting. James Spader remains excellent in his role as Reddington. Megan Boone's acting skills are slowly improving. I especially enjoyed the season finale, in particular the last scene with Liz and Reddington. It is apparent that despite all that has happened between them, they care about one another. I look forward to the next season.

- GREAT SHOW!5 star

Looking at the conclusion, it seems to me that Red is lizzy’s father, especially looking at his burned back.

- James Spader is spectacular5 star

I have always thought so highly of James Spader as an actor and the show would not have been the same at all without him. Perfect cast match to character. It is a pleasure watching James Spader at his best.

- Wao!!!!5 star

It gets better and better, Awasome show..

- Blacklist5 star

This is the best Drama of the year. Can't get enough

- Love this show5 star

Best show ever! Love character development! Love music! Love everything about every episode, all 18 so far!!!

- Good start but going down hill fast ...3 star

Interesting premise and good first episodes, carried by James Spader and a dramatic story arc. Unfortunately, it dropped off a cliff after the half season break. Spader now only bookends episodes, almost like a narrator, and sandwiched in between are pedestrian "cop show" episodes which are poorly written and wouldn't stand on their own without the hook of the "blacklist" plot. Sorry I bought the season pass :-(

- Getting better with a few hiccups....4 star

After watching some of the opening scenes I felt I was watching a reworking of the Clarice Starling-Hannibal Lechter relationship in Silence of the Lambs. Hope storyline improves- bought a season pass. Storyline has improved but Lizzie remains static as does the actress who portrays her. James Spader is excellent each week. I wish some of the other actors would improve. The 3/24/14 episode was amateurish with the lovesick teenager trying to impress his crush storyline. It was as if the writers lost steam.

- Best show on TV, in a long time5 star

This show is absolutely fantastic. Spader is a master and the plots are amazing. Must watch.

- Highly Addicting!5 star

James Spader is just amazing in this series. It's always enjoyable and at home we all can't wait for the next episode!!!! The lead female can sometimes be a little annoying with her personal life/work life priorities. But it's definitly worth watching!!!

- Mako Tanida, dumbest episode ever1 star

If there were any Japanese consultants on the episode, they played a good joke on the producers. Mako and Aiko are girls' names. All the Japanese words are pronounced wrong. Etc.

- Amazing!!!5 star

This show is something else. I seldom follow TV shows but this one is trully a hit. The Blacklist will surely win many awards. James Spader is trully amazing.

- Anyone please explain the numbering?4 star

What is that numbering next to the episode title? It is very confusing.

- Very Good5 star

I think this is a very entertaining show. I can't say enough good things about the writing and the performance delivered by James Spader.

- To iTunes: EXTRAS are not Episodes1 star

Good show, but way too many extras mixed in with the episodes. iTunes even sends notices that the next "episode" is available, when it's some nonsense behind-the-scenes thing. Extras are nice, but not if they bury the main episodes like this!

- My favorite TV series!!5 star

great combination of excellent plot and great actors

- Holy Crap!!!5 star

This is one of the best shows i've seen in a long time. I have always loved James Spader, he is such a brilliant actor. The way he brings his character "Red" to life is just Amazing. Very Nice Job James, You Are The Man. :)

- Amazingly5 star

Addictive😎😎😎

- Questions then answers5 star

I like this show, I like James Spader, he's a good bad guy. But this was a little too unrealistic and not great situations. You can defiantly tell this show is an NBC show by some of the camera angles and lines. I like it, but the acting and situations were a little awkward. Then it got deeper into the season everything got better. I was amazed on how much better this gets as you go along. Amazing show. Don't give up on it

- James Spader is perfect for this role5 star

I subscribed to this in iTunes when it started but never had time to watch until Christmas when I watched the first 10 episodes in one day. I noticed that some of the same Alias writers and producers work on this show which is what makes it so good. I go through withdrawal every week waiting for the next episode. And, I will watch anything that James Spader is in.

- Best Show On T.V.5 star

I now have good reason to watch T.V. I usually just watch the news and am done. I can't stand reality shows and hate the way they have taken over our T.V. culture. James Spader is a brilliant actor and am intrigued with his performance. Clever storyline, great character development, and great delivery, make this fast paced emotional thriller/drama set a new standard for other networks to follow ( quit been cheap and bring T.V. back! )

jennnish - Spader's Talent Lost on Mediocre Writing3 star

James Spader is always fascinating to watch, and I am happy that he's back on the little screen. Sadly his talent is wasted on a mediocre script with weak character development. The supporting cast isn't bad, it's just that story lines are weak. There's something here, but it needs a heavy dose of intelligent and clever writing to get the series up to Spader's speed.

Kulbeans - Great Series!5 star

It grabbed me right from the Pilot episode. James is "delish" as Red. A criminal with a soft side. Megan is a lot like Agent Starling in Silence Of The Lambs. Looking forward to future episodes. The Blacklist ROCKS!!

Stylishone - Can't get enough!5 star

Best show on tv right now. I can't get enough of The Blacklist. I love all the twist. I still think the husband is dirty though! lol

Unca Meat - The Blacklist5 star

Just keeps getting better! James Spader's best work.

writer6 - The Blacklist is definitely what I call must see TV :)5 star

I watched The Blacklist for the first time this weekend when I bought the first episode. As soon as I got done watching the first episode, I was instantly hooked on the show and bought a season pass for the show. James Spader and Megan Boone both play their roles perfectly, and this show has amazing writing. I definitely wasn't expecting this show to become one of my favorite new shows this season, but it has. The Blacklist is definitely worth checking out. :)

NachoBob123 - AMAZING5 star

Love this show but I have so many questions that aren't being answered

caturah - You have to be able to understand nuances and pay close attention!5 star

The subtle looks and cagey nuances of Spader's performance and the performances of all the cast is superb. The writers are not only clever but blend in brilliant surprises with artful creativity. If you look away you may miss that look or trembling glance which will turn out to be a clue! You cannot multi-task while watching this show. You won't get it or appreciate the depth of the show's meaning. My new number one favorite until Game of Thrones starts up. Sorry, Walking Dead and Big Bang, and Person of Interest. You are now 2, 3, and 4. Lol.

DPPeters - Where is the latest episode?5 star

Love the show, bought the season pass, but wasn’t there an episode last week? Why isn’t it on iTunes yet? Or, am I nuts and there wasn’t a new episode last week?

Borscht - Great show!4 star

But i cant believe they make me wait for 2 weeks already for the next episode... I found the start amazing, couldnt wait for the next episodes to come. Then the 4th and 5th episode was a little bit of a downer, but story line is starting to pick up again a little bit, good enough to keep me interested.

C-GOD - WTdeuce3 star

Shows is good but why can't I play the episodes on my TV Apple? Every show till now lets me. I will not be buying season 2 due to this. Hate to tell you Apple but there are Soldiers still in foreign countries who would love to watch this away from the reach of AFN. Fix yourselves.

SaberHawk - WINNER!5 star

This is the best show this season. James Spader is electrifying in the lead role. I am not a professional critic, but the plot keeps us guessing, and looking forward to next weeks episode. My compliments to cast and crew. Keep 'me coming! :-)

AnaPaula74 - Wow!5 star

I loved, but do think that it needs to slower and explain better situations... It is too much on situation, complication but too little on the resolution aspect. I want to see more on the relationship to develop between Red and Keen and more on the dark side of her husband….

Frannie010 - Love it!5 star

This is an awesome show and James Spader is fantastic!

OtisDay66 - Not Luddites4 star

General Ludd episode was intense with great storyline development. The scene with Red threatening Tom by the coffee truck is loaded with foreshadowing...but to what? Can't wait to see.

Saralizbeth - Extraordinary5 star

This is the best show on television primarily because of the cast and the fast paced startling events. Everything else pales in comparison to James Spader in the perfect role. Great story, great surprises. Hope this show lasts forever! It has changed the quality of television. Don't change a thing and don't slow down for those who have yet to catch up!!!

Haptotrope - Wishing it wasn't a chosen one story4 star

There are some great stories/crime vignettes great actors in there-- FBI director, Red, HusbandAgent, MeeraCIA, Isabella Rossellini, but Lizzie, my god, flat and unwatchable--glimpses of hope later in the seasons, but she can't seem to hold a fully lit candle to the rest of the cast and guest stars. Solve her mystery, end her plot, because if she's still around, I probably won't do season two. Which is a shame, because James Spader as Red is magical character.

"@@$);/583,)5$(73$364 - Best Series On TV5 star

This show is truly amazing, and Nader fails at adding plot twists, that make it excruciatingly interesting. James Spader, and the rest of the cast are remarkable actors, and can't wait for the show to air every Monday. MUST WATCH!!!

The Iron Marshal - Connections...5 star

I think some of the initial reviewers were a bit quick to judge this series. Yes, there were plot holes in the pilot, there always are in TV productions; there simply isn’t time to do what should be done. But, that is why we have books, books complete the thought and tie up loose ends. This isn’t a book, it’s a TV series doing the best job that it can with limited resources. What is interesting here is the connections between Red and Lizzy. Why does Red watch out for Lizzy? Why does he want Lizzy to appreciate him? Why did Red appear on the scene when Lizzy started her first day? Why does Red call Lizzy by that term of endearment, when only the closest of family members called her by that name? What is Red’s connection to Lizzy? This is the overarching question to be answered here, and it’s what makes this series compelling, the continuing storyline which connects episode to episode.

StoryDelver - Started interesting, getting too dark2 star

There's nothing to liven up the show. It's getting way too dark and vile. There's no humor or wit. No relationships between people that create any sense of caring about them in the viewer. Just darkness and unhappiness and a damsel in distress. Who cares?

Peg&Mel - Good Show5 star

Very good producing! Great job producer and Co-Producer. (Katrin Goodson). From Texas

DavidKiang - Thin on the Acting and Direction2 star

Can be a fun series, but the work is very forced, pacing is almost comical.

ShepherdWB - Gets better each episode!5 star

This show keeps getting better and better each week. Each hour is a hunt for one of the criminals on the blacklist of the anti-hero played by James Spader, but there are also story arcs that transcend the episode and presumably will all tie together. If you like the Shield, CSI, Burn Notice, and similar shows, you should definitely give Blacklist a shot!

eopr08 - Keep telling yourself.. its just fiction5 star

Spader is brilliant! Never doubted the hook you get when watching him. The cast well put together. Some of the best that has come along… bravo

Maat2010 - It is a great show, however...4 star

I am very intrigued by the show. However, I am also obsessed with the heroin's hair. Is she wearing a wig??? Inquiring minds want to know ; )

Hookscloud - Add The Blacklist to My Top Five List5 star

After watching only two episodes, this show made my iTunes TV top five list. The clash of Reddington's and King's personalities and the mystery behind their relationship add to the overall suspense of the show. Great action and drama with a touch of high tech glitter.

JohnDarwinD - Surprisingly spellbinding5 star

The Blacklist is one of those shows that comes out nowhere and wows you. I hadn't seen any promotional material and stumbled across the pilot purely by chance. Yes, the show requires some suspension of disbelief, and yes, the pilot has to cram a lot of set up into a very short space. But by the third episode I was hooked. The cast is outstanding (great chemistry as an ensemble), the weekly cases increasing clever, and the long game is mysterious and totally compelling. I'm all in for season 1.
