The Blacklist (NBC) -- Season 9 -- Premieres 10/21/21





In the two years following the death of Elizabeth Keen, Raymond Reddington and the members of the FBI Task Force have disbanded with Reddington's whereabouts unknown. When one of their own is injured in the line of duty, however, the Task Force is drawn back together to bring down a conspiracy that could shatter global security. TV-14

It's now all Red Reddington. Liz was killed off in season 8

As I noted in the season 8 thread, I forgot Liz died

This show is dragging along.

I was amazed they actually shot a full 22 episode season last year even with all the COVID restrictions. Most shows cut their seasons short. I guess Sony really wants to fulfill an episode quota so they have more content to sell.

Hard to judge from one episode alone.

It feels like the producers slammed down hard on the "reset button". Without Boone/Keen, it sorta resembles an episodic procedural.

I could watch this for another several seasons as a generic procedural, even if Spader/Reddington is just "phoning it in" to provide "numbers of the week".

(Without getting too heavily into current geopolitics).

Watching this episode again while fast-forwarding skipping over the "getting the band back together" segments, I'm guessing this might be a depiction of a behind the scenes espionage of china (or another stand-in roguestate) attempting to get around the taiwan "silicon shield".

I liked the premiere. Throughout the years, I would always get confused by the Liz family storyline, so I'm glad that's over (I think).

I'm glad the Skinner storyline wasn't a one-and-done for this episode. I want to see more.

Re: The Blacklist (NBC) -- Season 9 -- Premieres 10/21/21

Just watched “The Avenging Angel” (S09E04)… and they are setting the stage with multiple directions to go:

Ressler:
Spoiler:
Druggie trying to get clean.

Harold:
Spoiler:
May have ‘blacked out’ and shot the guy his wife had an affair with back in Season 3.

Reddington:
Spoiler:
Making a bunch of new (wealthy) friends.

Aram:
Spoiler:
Lost puppy syndrome.

Alina:
Spoiler:
Gave Ressler her pee… came back positive for tumors/cancer.

Dembe:
Spoiler:
Avoiding answering any question from Reddington… where’s that gonna go?

… and I love Redd’s new “Dembe” - Weecha. She’s cool as a cucumber.

So Park was pregnant, but in males, the same result is a marker for cancer.

“Between Sleep and Awake” (s09e07) was Ressler-centric episode last night. It was pretty good. Filler, but good.

I've officially dropped this show. Just deleted episodes 9.7 and 9.8 from my DVR.

Interesting premise when the show started, but these days, the story has been dragging for a couple seasons and it's a chore to watch.

The Christmas break pushed me over the edge to drop it. I was on the fence beforehand. The break did it.

Renewed for a 10th season.

Judging by this thread looks like maybe 4 or 5 still watch it. I still have to finish a few more episodes from season 8 on Netflix, but have been recording the 9th season. I did get spoiled on Liz dying, so I already knew that.

This is obviously purely a renewal for financial reasons for Sony and Spader. Both are making bank on more episodes to sell.

im hanging in there. This season hasn’t been very good.

Sony must be really happy with this news. NBC got a small cut of the show back in season 5 or 6, so everyone is really happy.

This is the only network show I watch on the Big 4.

Yeah it has been a bit of hit or miss the last 2 seasons but I will stick with it. I still enjoy it quite a bit.

This week’s episode (“The Bear Mask”, S09E19) had a little Squid Game-ish VIP deja vu.

Now you made me go look it up... and I'm intrigued by that name. Very interesting direction.

I hope his last words to Reddington are "No disassemble!"

Yep, not happy with that one but maybe that person will be the main villain next season. Great person to be a season-long threat.

this season has mainly sucked until the last few weeks
