The Blacklist Should Be on Your List

by Lucy Black

James Spader is pure evil genius in NBC's The Blacklist.

I love this latest twist on the classic story of brilliant psychopath meets over zealous career driven beauty.   And speaking of that beauty, Megan Boone does a great job of holding her own next to Spader.  This is the first time I've heard of Boone, but she's got a pretty impressive roster of stars that she's ponied up with in both TV and movie.  Sarah Jessica Parker, James Franco, and will soon be in a comedy called "Welcome to the Jungle" with ... how weird is this... of all people Jean-Claude Van Damme (and a slew of other well known comedians).  Speaking of Jean-Claude Van Damme, I once heard he could crack a walnut shell with his gluteus maximus.  And that makes me feel maximus happiness.

Anywho, totally off base of The Blacklist - which you should check ...AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!  Wait, sorry - am actually watching and writing and one of the FBI agents just grabbed the bone sticking out of this guys leg and ... AAAAAAAHHHHHH!  

What I'm trying to say is, if you've ever found yourself on a 6 hour CSI binge, this may be your next addiction.

Randomly we happened to be talking about Pretty In Pink this morning, so I've got Spader on the radar.  And on that note, I'm gonna go take a shower, coz I look like sh*t.  (That last one is for the really hardcore fans)
