- I started watching it at s04e10.
Properly titled The Blacklist: Redemption
An old retired cop is reborn into a younger, stronger, version of himself, and fights crime.
Seems fairly good, though I'd bet it would be bland without the pretty girl.
A dude begins his career as a night manager for some place somewhere but gets used by British intelligence to act against an arms dealer.
Fairly decent, but I suspect it's only because this is another show with a British accent being thrown around carelessly.
A down-and-out semi-lawyer bumbles around his life, trying to make ends meet.
After an entire season I still don't feel anything for this show.
This show is a spinoff for a character from Breaking Bad - (2008 show)
Note to self - avoid cliffhangers: watch more when it's part way into the next season.
A bad guy blackmails the good guys because he likes this one good girl.
My impression from the first few episodes was:
Seems "ok". Unless this has a more interesting story-arc, I won't consider this particularly good. The predictable and episodic nature of television bores the shit out of me. It makes a series only valuable only the course of multiple episodes and individual episodes become the shit I have to slog through.
My later impression, from the end of the second season:
Characters were slow and stiff until they were developed more fully. When they were, a broader story arc took hold, making this show quite a bit more interesting.
After a stitched-together corpse is found, it is determined that children have been going missing.
Featuring a Sean Bean who is restrained from acting, this plodding may as well-be documentary features people with an English accent doing stuff and caring about things. It is neither captivating nor even interesting.
TODO - I haven't started watching this yet, but it's next up for a quick peek.
A detective is haunted with hallucinations that include his dead partner, who was killed under mysterious circumstances.
I think some would find this movie slow and boring, and I did at first, but it very quickly revealed a depth and character that I haven't seen in any television show before and I doubt I will again.
This isn't a classic cop-and-mystery show. All I can say is give this a good chance, at least until the end of the second episode.
Though an author tags along with the police because a particular detective is particularly hot, it turns out he's actually helpful.
I adore this series, even though it gets repetitive later on.
If I get to re-watching things, I'll add notes.

The early days of Gotham City.
This loiters on all the named characters, trying to explore their backstories. I didn't like it.
