    • Driven crazy by Liz's pregnancy

      1.0
      Have love, loved, loved the Blacklist but it's gone right down for me since Liz's pregnancy. Why did they have to make it such a big part of the show, the ridiculous drama about her giving up the baby for adoption, baby shower discussions!! then bigger drama when she decides to keep her baby, then marry her ex again. I struggled through these episodes and sorry really struggled and wondered why we had to pander to this hugely pregnant, very overweight woman. I agree with the previous comment that there should be something in there contract to stop them ruining a series like this! I only started watching it again when I found out they had finally come to their senses and killed her then it had to be about the pregnancy. So much better without her, can't believe she's the highest paid actress of 2016. Please don't bring her back, find Spader an actress worthy of him. Let's get back to what the Blacklist was originally about and it definitely wasn't pregnant women.moreless

      While we wait for the inevitable return of Keen I have to say I'm enjoying the off-the-wall direction this show has taken. "Cape May" was a fantastic episode and a highpoint in the same way that AGENT OF SHIELD's "4,722 Hours" brought a whole new game to that show.



      Sad to say, I'm not missing Keen at all while the fabulous Spader is there to smile his threats, shoot people with no moral hand-wringing afterwards and occasionally to chew up the scenery when the plot needs a bit of a boost.



      Oh . Clearly she's in hiding to escape both her mother and Red. C'mon. We've all thought that since she "died"moreless

    • maddening. the SOLE PURPOSE for Red to exist ... WAS HIS tie to Keen

      8.5
      Remove THAT tie .. and the show DOESN'T exist beyond that premise. Spader is always THE REASON to watch any show he's appeared in. BUT NOT when the main premise was meaninglessly

      SORRY showrunners; this show will slowly destruct itself. Like the clever animation at the top of the TV and movie "Mission Impossible" beginnings - this too will SELF-destruct
    • This is the beginning of the end - Mark it down

      They are making some serious mistakes on the show right now. Killing off Keen - while it is a little bit refreshing, takes the show into a risky direction that is not being done very carefully. The guy they brought in to be Katerina's father was not a very good casting role for him - I can't remember all of the things that I've seen him in over the years, but it needed to be someone more unknown in hollywood and Russian acting. The dialog and interaction between Red and Katerina's father was flat and uninteresting.



      I don't believe in Dembe giving Aram the location of Red just to show up unannounced and ask him to come back (without Dembe calling), this is ridiculous. Aram and Samar smoking a joint in the car next to Agent Ressler is also equally ridiculous and out of character for all of them. This makes no sense for FBI agents and the straight laced Ressler would totally be against it.



      The whole possibility of Katerina coming into the story now (in real life) seems like an unplanned attempt to take the show into a new direction. And, it was just a wee bit too convenient for Katerina to turn around just right in both photographs (with the same look over the shoulder). I guess they want to make sure we do not get confused on who it "might" be.



      The Mr. Solomon episodes were the real beginning of the end because the show is making in-plausible moves here. It was unnecessary to break him out of prison and assassinate all of the cabal guards in order to have him simply "lead" a task force in kidnapping Keen, and for him to change his allegiance in doing it. Those episodes were not well planned and it also seems completely inappropriate for them to be shooting 1000s of bullets at the person they are supposed to be kidnapping.



      Cape May was incredibly good - and almost brought me back but I've almost forgotten by now.



      This is the turning point of a once great show heading toward the demise.



      I might give them one more season at this point.moreless
