In The Blacklist (NBC, Mondays, 10/9C), a rogue FBI agent walks into FBI headquarters. He offers to help capture criminals – politicians, mobsters, terrorists, all kinds of bad guys – who are so successful the authorities don’t even know they exist. The catch? He will only talk to one person, a young agent who is just about to start her first day as a profiler. It is the fall’s best new drama in part because it riffs on things we’ve seen before, making them fresh, and partly because the cast in so perfect.
Also, James Spader plays Raymond ‘Red’ Reddington, the rogue agent, and he is having way too much fun!
