For decades, ex-government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader, TV’s “The Office,” “Boston Legal”) has been one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as “The concierge of Crime.” Now, he’s mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: he will help catch the world’s most elusive criminals, under the condition that he speaks only to Elizabeth “Liz” Keen (Megan Boone, TV’s “Law & Order: Los Angeles”), an FBI profiler fresh out of Quantico. For Liz, it’s going to be one hell of a first day on the job.

Shows pretty close to the top are Chicago Fire, which is getting better as it goes. It has beautiful shots of a Great City,Lots of drama and some cool relationship stuff among all firefighters. Of Course the US version of Shameless and even Nurse Jackie (most of the time) and early (Much earlier) Weeds was different and cool at points.
Other than those....... I dont think i watch TV shows or movies unless they are Documentry type films/shows.
The basic story is that James Spader is on the FBI's 10 most wanted fugitive list. He turns himself in to the FBI offering to help them apprehend other longstanding criminals, however, he will only work with one Agent, Lizzy Keene. It's her first day on the job and everyone is baffled as to why Raymond Reddington (Spader) will only work with her. I don't want to give too much away, but as the season progresses, you get bits and pieces as to what their possible prior connection or history is, but they keep you guessing. You're not sure who to believe, who is a good guy and who is a bad guy. Each episode is about another career criminal (on the Blacklist), so each episode usually revolves around the criminal of the hour, but the thread through the season is Lizzy and Raymond's relationship. What I really enjoy and was not expecting, is that I LAUGHED a lot in this show. Raymond Reddington is filthy rich and a bit of a snob. He will be ready to kill someone, but stops to tell them a story... "this one time in Dubai...." or has some quip that is so out of place for the situation, it's funny. The music is great too. When the FBI agrees to work with Raymond and puts him up in this posh hotel suite, we see him eating steak and drinking expensive wine, "Ain't that a kick in the head" is playing. Classic!
