🔴 Review of Reviews

 

🔴 Review of Reviews

 
Nothing bothers me more than snarky reviews. Or reviews that seem intended to show how knowledgable the reviewer is rather than tell me something insightful about the show. So I thought I’d turn the tables and review the reviewers. I found all The Blacklist season finale [2:22 Tom Connolly] reviews that showed up on the my first two Google pages and graded them for how helpful and insightful I thought they were.

Maybe even more useful, I took at look at their internet sites and graded those, too. Here, I was looking for functionality as well as for organization and interest.

🔴 Looking Ahead to Season 3

 

🔴 Looking Ahead to Season 3

 
May 20, 2015
 

 
Here is James Spader on Red and Liz’s evolving relationship:

Q: “Looking back over Season 2, in what ways would you say that the relationship between Liz and Reddington has changed?
James Spader: In terms of that relationship, it has its hills and valleys and I think it has to continue to be that way. It’s a very, very complicated relationship between the two of them. As much as she doesn’t know the true nature of their relationship, I think it’s quite equitable for Reddington as well because I think he’s trying to grasp a hold of what the true nature of their relationship is now. Forget the past, regardless of what that the past represents. What is the nature of their relationship now and what are even the possibilities of a relationship with her. I think he’s enormously conflicted that he’s there. He certainly has a protective instinct but by the same token he does bring an awful lot of crisis and strife to her life. And I think he probably wrestles with that quite a lot.”

It’s a good question where Red’s sense of “justice” comes from. I’ve been thinking about this a lot. We know the Greeks came up with our Western idea of “justice” – but did they invent it or simply write down what is implicit in human nature?
