Now, as they team up to employ their unique skills and resources in a dangerous world of deadly criminals, Tom begins his own mission to find out more about his shadowy past.Written by
For me, this first episode lived up to my high expectations. I am a big fan of Tom Keene and the other characters who are in search of redemption by doing bad for good causes pleased me too.
I think the tension between the personas and pitches of Tom's parents make for an intriguing subplot. My hunch is the father is actually the bad guy even though he is presented mainly as the good guy in episode 1.
I think this series will win fans as it gets time to develop and hope no premature decisions are made about its fate. If viewers can show some willingness to try a new twist on a solid tale and NBC can show some courage in their commitment, I predict Blacklist Redemption will be a winner.
