Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, after The Blacklist midseason finale, NBC will kick off The Blacklist: Redemption. This new spin-off series finds former blacklisters teaming up as part of an elite mercenary group trying to redeem themselves by solving problems governments can’t legally get involved in themselves. Susan “Scottie” Hargrave (Famke Janssen, Hemlock Grove) recruits her son Tom Keen (Ryan Eggold) to join her at the Halcyon Corporation and take on some impossible missions. Scottie’s skilled team also includes Nez Rowan (Tawny Cypress, Unforgettable), hacker Dumont (Adrian Martinez, A Gifted Man) and lethal assassin Matias Solomon (Edi Gathegi, StartUp), who has a bad history with Tom.

This show looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun – like a weekly cinematic action/adventure in the vein of Mission: Impossible or Oceans Eleven. I really like how they’ve brought together all these past characters from The Blacklist – some have appeared on many episodes while others just one or two – and have given them this new world to play in. How will these criminals work together? Can they really trust one another? And what kind of cases will they tackle? I’m looking forward to seeing how the series explores Tom and Scottie’s relationship. He only recently learned that his mother was alive, so I’m assuming we will find out more about why and how she left him as a child while also seeing them form a new bond while working together.

On tonight’s premiere, “Leland Bray,” a routine trip to New York turns perilous when ex-operative Tom Keen is recruited by a mercenary chief to help rescue a kidnapped CIA agent.

See how the new series begins tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, The Great Indoors, Life in Pieces, Superstore, Powerless, MasterChef Junior, My Kitchen Rules, Planet Earth II, Top Chef, and Sun Records.
