🔴 Season Two Review

 

🔴 Review: Season Two of The Blacklist is even

¤ better than Season One

 
March 10, 2015
 
The glue that holds this show together is the mysterious relationship between Elizabeth “Liz” Keen and the enigmatic, irreverent Raymond, “Red” Reddington. The second season is better in many ways than the first. The bad guys are more realistic and the plot lines explore the realm of international politics and important domestic issues. The research into the background of the procedural aspects of the show holds up well, making it “educational TV” for an America naive about matters like neurobiological research, human trafficking, the “down” side of capitalism and the dangers of secret international agendas (electronic surveillance, the various threats to national sovereignty and insidious threats to security) that threaten democracy. Red’s values come into better focus as matters from his past turn out to have national and international implications.

2:8 Decembrist: State Capitalism & the Internet (11/25/2014)

I rewrote this idea & submitted it to The Blacklist Exposed:
http://www.goldenspiralmedia.com/feedback
They are soliciting ideas on where The Blacklist should go. You may have read an earlier version (detail is at the links). I saw the “spoiler” link – it just says they are looking for someone to play one of the alliance guys Fitch mentioned before he exploded. So, this is a bit of a promo, I guess.

2:8 Decembrist: The Warrior Gene & Me (11/20/2014)

Sometimes you have secrets even you didn’t know you had 

I had looked into the research on the “Warrior gene” (MAOA) earlier and posted that here [on WSJ Speakeasy] but decided last night to look again, to check out @A.M.’s theory. I worked in biomed research and genomics for more than a decade, so that was a start. There was a swell of new research back in 2009-12 which roughly coincides when The Blacklist was being conceived.

2:8 Decembrist: Original Pilot Script (11/19/2014)

For the record, I think Red is straight. I was making a “the case can be made” type of argument.
_________

I have a copy of the original script for The Blacklist pilot (it precedes even the online version which in turn is not identical to the performance). It has more information on Liz’s youth ➔ but it may be more important to know that they did decide to change certain things: it could mean they definitely are NOT going with these ideas. For instance, they apparently decided to change the time of the fire from when she was 14 to when she was four (or else there were two fires). Obviously, the final production is what matters. But, just fyi: about Liz’s youth, it says [stage directions in parentheses]:

FULCRUM: State Capitalism vs the Internet (2)

Link to Part 1: State Capitalism vs the Internet
 
The Fulcrum (possibly an acronym) could involve a Master Plan for world domination, already in play, including a list of people embedded at high levels in national governments (like Fitch). It could spoil the plan if revealed. (Maybe Hillary Clinton is behind it – lol!)⋙ The theory is based on the fact that the World Wide Web went live on December 25, 1990 [the day after Reddington disappeared].Earlier in 1990, the Internet was put into the public sphere by the Defense Department, which had developed it. There must have been grumbling about this.

FULCRUM: State Capitalism vs the Internet (1)

 

Something earth-shattering happened on 12/25/1990…

 

“Tim Berners-Lee [creator of the World Wide Web] accessed the first Web page, on the first Web server, using the first Web browser on Christmas Day 1990.” – SciAm http://bit.ly/1yDRsyh Christmas Day – the day after Red Reddington disappeared. Earlier in the year, DARPA (the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) had ended its ARPAnet project, the Internet’s precursor. The technology was free. The Internet, “the killer app of all time,” was in the public sphere.
