The Blacklist is never going to be anyone's idea of great art, but at least it has a pulpy kind of momentum that may well be worth watching for a while; I will stick around to see whether Spader's performance really is the only dish on the menu.

It's probably a mite too ridiculous for the dire tone it sometimes affects, but it's confident, verging on brazen, and one tends to respect that quality in entertainment.

You might doubt the series’ long-term viability the way its agents doubt Red’s sincerity. I’ll wait for the show to betray — or bore — me before deciding. Here and now, The Blacklist is top-of-the-list escapism.
