Do You Know Who Your Living With

The Blacklist is an American drama series the aired in NBC September 23.  Staring James Spader, Megan Boone, and Harry Lennix. Raymond "Red" Reddington, played by James Spader, is one of the FBI's most wanted fugitives, he surrenders at FBI Headquaters in Washington, D.C.. He claims the FBI has similar interests to him, that is, getting rid of dangerous criminals and terrorists. Reddington will co-operate, but insists he will speak only to Elizabeth Keen, a rookie FBI profiler.  Keen questions Reddington's sudden interest in her, despite his claim she is very special. After the FBI brings down a terrorist he provided information on, Reddington reveals that this terrorist is only the first of many. In the last two decades, he's made a list of criminals and terrorists he believes matter the most; a list the FBI doesn't know exists. Reddington calls it "The Blacklist".
This show reminds me very much of the Silence of the Lambs mixed with White Collar and potentially Borne spy movies. It's exciting full of  surprises and is one of the top new TV shows out. It's a must see!
