We just celebrated our 5 years anniversary and now we have reached yet another milestone!

the blacklist Q&A
"Please tell me someone is going to answer that."

Marilyn (Fangirl49)
How did you get aware of the show and why did it keep you on board?
I became aware of the show when it first started through reviews I saw. I had all the episodes recorded, but didn't watch them until five or six episodes in and then I couldn't stop. But I didn't become a TBL addict until S3. And then it hit me that I love Red and Liz and could watch them all day. Of course that's when the whole tone of the series changed. I keep watching the show because of the incredible acting of James Spader and because I want the Red Liz relationship restored. I still hope for that. I also keep watching because of this forum and the fun I have talking to each of you.

Who do you think will be #1 on the Blacklist and why?
I go back and forth on that. Now I think the number 1 blacklister is the person who killed his family. I'm not picking Katarina because I want her to remain dead.

If you could be a character, who would you be and why?
The character I would be is Red. I'd like to be the smartest person in the room.

If there would be another spin-off, which character would you want in it and what should it be about?
My spinoff would have to be Red's backstory. And I guess none of these actors could be in it. But my show would have young Red, Dom, Katarina, Raymond, Naomi and Reds family.

What is your favorite song and why?
I'm struggling to decide between Rise Up and Just Breathe. I like both songs because the scenes really spoke to me. We have the hug between Red and Liz while Rise Up was playing. We have the S1 Finale when Just Breathe was playing. I love that whole montage and something about the words to the song speak to me.

Kris (Lauren Helen Graham)
How did you get aware of the show and why did it keep you on board?
I heard about the show during pilot season and was having a look at the official trailers back then. It sounded fantastic and I needed to check it out.
So far, the mythology of the show kept me on board.

Who do you think will be #1 on the Blacklist and why?
Wow, that's a hard one and a really long time I believed that Raymond Reddington himself would be #1 on the list... But now, I don't believe that anymore. I think it's nobody we have met or heard about yet. I think it's some kind of organization.

If you could be a character, who would you be and why?
I somehow would want to be Samar. I loved her moral code so much and she had a life after all. She knew what she wanted and what not, her alliance was not with a person or organization but somehow with her moral code. That was stunning.

If there would be another spin-off, which character would you want in it and what should it be about?
I would love for it to be about the time before the list starting with the life of Raymond Reddington and Katarina Rostova and going forward from there until the day Raymond Reddington surrendered.

What is your favorite song and why?
That's a super hard question... For me it's a tie between Pendulum from Perl Jam which was playing in Anslo Garrick: Conclusion and Here with Me from Susie Suh and Robot Koch which was playing in Wujing. I love both the songs so much. Here with Me is THE song for me that will always remind me of TBL. It was the first song I ever connected with the show and that stuck. Pendulum though is fitting the scene so perfectly. Red calling Lizzie after he left to protect himself and her asking him if he is her father. The answer and him warning her about her husband again. Such an emotional scene that this song fits so well.

Miranda (Miranda)
How did you get aware of the show and why did it keep you on board?
I was looking for new shows to watch online and I came across The Blacklist. I watched the promo for the pilot and I immediately was very interested in this show and from the very first episode I have been hooked on this show. Just when you think you figured something it is completely different and that is why I love this show so much and that is why I keep watching. It is so interesting and every episode we learn new things and there is never a dull moment. They keep things interesting. And sometimes I don't like how the show is going but I will always keep watching. Until the very end cause I want to know all there is to know about this show.

Who do you think will be #1 on the Blacklist and why?
I am probably going to be completely wrong with this one but I think Red is #1 on the Blacklist. His real identity. The person he was before he became Raymond Reddington. I think he would give the task force his real name at the end of the series and that the team is going to investigate this person and therefore discover that that person is Red.

If you could be a character, who would you be and why?
If I could be a character I would like to be Samar. She is such strong, independent woman. She knows exactly what she wants and she won't let anybody mess with her. And she is just a bada** and I would love to be a bada**.

If there would be another spin-off, which character would you want in it and what should it be about?
I would like to see a spin-off about Red before he became Raymond Reddington. I want to see them in his younger years. What happened to him in his past. What was he like when he was in Naval Intelligence and of course most important, when and why did he became Raymond Reddington? I would love James Spader as a young Red as well but that would be pretty much impossible so they would have to cast a really amazing actor to do the character as much justice just like James does.

What is your favorite song and why?
The sound of silence by disturbed. That song is so amazing! It played during the scene where Tom and Liz are in the car with Red and Dembe, on the way to hospital after they were attacked by Ian Garvey and his men. That song was so fitting for that entire scene. I still cry every time I hear it. And it was also played at the funeral of my uncle and it made me think of TBL and that is why it also has special meaning to me.

What's really funny is that I almost pm you guys and ask you to change mine to Samar. Once I saw those last two episodes I thought I should've picked Samar. Great job on everything Both of you.

Marilyn That's really funny indeed. But I love your choice as well. It was a tie for me between Red and Samar but I had to decide for one and I went with Samar because Red was a bit extreme for me in the end.

Our titles are not set up yet but I get that because of the time difference I hope that tomorrow in the evening we'll have our favorite quote as a special title
