Blacklisted

The Blacklist is among the better shows on television.

It's well scripted, well acted, has a great story, and James Spader jumps off the screen.

Unfortunately, it's very dark, creepy, violent and disturbing.

I cringed my way through a lot of scenes last season, the first season.

Even though there's a lot of good here, I won't be watching the second season, which begins tonight.

It's too bad.  The Blacklist is clever enough that it doesn't need the violence, the gore, the beheadings, the shootings, the chopped off limbs, the poisonings...

If you're able to stomach it, enjoy season two.
