I never heard of THE BLACKLIST until today's news that it's been renewed for a 2nd season. Just watched the pilot on HULU though and now it's today's new favorite thing. In one sentence--It's SILENCE OF THE LAMBS without the cannibalism aspect. I've always enjoyed James Spader. A unique personality at his best and ideally suited to quirky roles like this. Not sure how long they can realistically draw out the premise but for now I'm enjoying it.
