The Blacklist: The Complete Third Season (2015 - 2016/Sony Blu-ray Set)

Picture: B+ Sound: B+ Extras: B+ Episodes: C+

Fans of the hit NBC show The Blacklist will be certainly excited over this fantastic Blu-ray release from Sony that is packed to the brim with extras and sports an impressive transfer that greatly improves upon the original HD television broadcast. Starring James Spader (Secretary) as Red, who is an actor to whom I'm so relieved is finally getting some of the credit he deserves, the show is sort of a take on Silence of the Lambs where a criminal mastermind must aide the police but turns the concept on its head a bit.

Picking up where Season 2 left off, we have the beautiful FBI Agent Liz Keen (Megan Boone) who is now on the run with Raymond "Red" Reddington (Spader). With Assistant FBI Director Harold Cooper (Henry Lennix) under investigation, a conflicted Agent Donald Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff) leads the tireless FBI on a gritty manhunt for Liz and Red. The closer the two fugitives get to one another, the more Reddington manipulates her and dives deep into her troubled past and conflicted psyche.

Episodes include The Troll Farmer, Marvin Gerard, Eli Matchett, The Djinn, Arioch Cain, Sir Crispin Crandall, Zal Bin Hasaan, Kings of the Highway, The Director, The Director: Conclusion, Mr. Gregory Devry, The Vehm, Alistair Pitt, Lady Ambrosia, Drexel, The Caretaker, Mr. Solomon, Mr. Solomon: Conclusion, Cape May, The Artax Network, Susan Hargrave, Alexander Kirk, and Alexander Kirk: Conclusion.

Presented in 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1 and a strong-sounding English, lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track in English and French, the show sounds fantastic on Blu-ray disc and really outdoes the original broadcast in every way. Also included in the five disc set is a Ultraviolet Copy.

Special Features include:

Deleted and Extended Scenes (Blu-ray exclusive)

From the Shadows: Villains of Season 3 (Blu-ray exclusive)

Episode Commentaries (Blu-ray exclusive)

Creating The Stunts: Script to Screen (Blu-ray exclusive)

Outside the Box: Making The Blacklist Comic Book

If you're a fan of James Spader after watching this show, I would suggest you check out the much maligned Keanu Reeves crime thriller The Watcher, where Spader plays the opposite role in a troubled Police Detective. Kind of interesting to see him play both sides. This is a fantastic release, however, and isn't one to be missed by fans of the show.
