The Blacklist has the world enticed, to say the least. The award winning show currently boasts a whopping rating of 91% on Rotten Tomatoes and an 8/10 on IMDB.
With critics calling the show, "witty, emotional and addictive" there is plenty of room for it to persist in it's upward trajectory.
Having just been renewed for an eighth season, newcomers may wonder what makes the show so riveting.
Having multi award winning actor James Spader, playing the lead character, Raymond Reddington is one of the primary reasons this show claims so many viewers' high praise as he is a rather complex character.
