Now that I’ve finished watching Lie To Me (great show) I needed another show to watch.

Took a gamble on The Blacklist, mainly because James Spader is my favourite actor. I have watched four episodes so far and initial impressions are very good.

Of course with my track record it will probably now get cancelled
