Herk walked down my driveway and watched my puttering with a little project for half-minute, then he said
Didja watch the new show, Blacklist?
Whatcha think? Pretty cool, huh?
Totally derivative. The crook-aids-law-enforcement straight from White Collar; blood and gore from any number of crime programs, just another in the list of shows that hope to see how far they can go, and how soon they can turn your stomach; kick-ass tough girl on the side of good from NCIS, NCIS -LA, SVU, and any number of other programs; spouse with a secret life, well you've seen it all before. And James Spader played his role with the same arrogance with which he played a lawyer in Boston Legal. Why not? Lawyer, crook.
I see no compelling reason whatsoever to put the show on my watch-list.
Herk was already half-way home.
