Recapping ‘The Blacklist’ on We Got This Covered

The Blacklist

I don’t care much for the Super Bowl, or NFL football in general, but it’s always nice when the big episode of a TV series post-Super Bowl is one I like, and as luck would have it, this year’s big game nightcap is the James Spader-drama series The Blacklist, which I will now recap weekly on We Got This Covered.

If you don’t know the series, it stars Spader as master criminal Raymond Reddington, who comes to the FBI with a list of bad guys he wants captured in exchange for immunity and to help achieve some nefarious scheme of his own. The show is great if you like watching Spader ham and lob a few zingers at his FBI cohorts, but it’s not so great if you want to watch a script make the police act like idiots in order to accentuate the cleverness of its main criminal genius.

Having said that, the first episode of the second half of season two got off to a very good start with lots of action, some good character moments and an interesting “Blacklister” in the form of Sons of Anarchy star Ron Perlman.

You can read my recap of the Super Bowl episode of The Blacklist here, and continue to follow along every Thursday on We Got This Covered.
