For decades, ex-government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader, “The Office,” “Boston Legal”) has been one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as “The Concierge of Crime.” Now, he’s mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: He will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, under the condition that he speaks only to Elizabeth “Liz” Keen (Megan Boone, “Law & Order: Los Angeles”), an FBI profiler fresh out of Quantico. For Liz, it’s going to be one hell of a first day on the job.

What follows is a twisting series of events as the race to stop a terrorist begins. What are Red’s true intentions? Why has he chosen Liz, a woman with whom he seemingly has no connection? Does Liz have secrets of her own? Zamani is only the first of many on a list that Red has compiled over the years: a “blacklist” of politicians, mobsters, spies and international terrorists. He will help catch them all… with the caveat that Liz continues to work as his partner. Red will teach Liz to think like a criminal to “see the bigger picture” - whether she wants to or not.

Also starring are Diego Klattenhoff (“Homeland”), Harry Lennix (“Man of Steel”) and Ryan Eggold (“90210”). Jon Bokenkamp (“The Call,” “Taking Lives”), John Eisendrath (“Alias”), John Davis (“Predator,” “I, Robot,” “Chronicle”) and John Fox serve as executive producers. The pilot was directed by Joe Carnahan (“The A-Team,” “The Grey”). “The Blacklist” is a production of Sony Pictures Television and Davis Entertainment.

Parminder Nagra (“Bend It Like Beckham,” “ER,” “Alcatraz”) has also joined the cast. ;)

Right now, we’re 4 episodes in so there’s plenty of time to jump onto this awesome show right from the start! James Spader is aMAAAAAAYzing in this role, IMO. If you’re a fan of Hannibal, this definitely has several of the same sorts of notes, though is not as gory or visceral. It’s more on the line with Silence of the Lambs in that the master criminal is already a known criminal who is working with the FBI for reasons completely of his own and there’s a definite Hannibal/Clarice vibe with Red and Lizzie.

The main problem I’m having is in trying NOT to ship Lizzie/Red because I have a feeling that they’re going to be related in some way. *blush* But I love their chemistry and the way that she brings out the hints of caring and compassion in Red that absolutely nobody else does. 1x04 “The Stewmaker” is an awesome example of this! *squees softly*

So I encourage you to give this one a try if you haven’t yet! It's gotten better and better every week and I'm really enjoying it a lot! :D ♥♥♥

The loverly [ profile] gorengal posted here with a solution that restored my moodtheme so I wanted to signal-boost in case anybody else has had their animated, Photobucket-hosted moodtheme suddenly turn into text instead of the usual images. :S Which is what happened to me but editing the links in my moodtheme as described in the fix restored them, yay!

In short, if this has happened to you, here's what to do:

Go to the edit moodtheme screen under customize journal appearance.

If the URL starts with "http://smg" then you'll need to change that to "http://img".

Edit: If it starts with "http://s" and some numbers after that, then you'll need to change to "http://i" and leave the numbers as they are. (Thanks to [ profile] gorengal yet again and to [ profile] betgirl for that info and better explanation than I originally had. ;) )

You can either manually replace each "s" with an "i" or if you have Firefox, you can get the Find and Replace add-on and it will do it for you. ;)

I did mine manually because I apparently have nothing better to do, lol! ;) But it did bring all of my images back, so at least it's something that seems to be working now. Until somebody else decides to "upgrade" and breaks it all over again, ugh! *eyeroll*

Anyway, just wanted to pass that along in case anybody else was trying to figure out what happened to their moodtheme! ;) There's a link to more info about this at [ profile] gorengal's entry if you want to read more. ;)

In other news, I'm vidding like a house afire (though why a house that was on fire would stop and take time to vid, I dunno... ;) ). Yet Another New Fandom (it's a movie and not really a "new" fandom because I've loved previous movies in the series but "new" in that I haven't vidded it before or talked about it much ;) ) and I'm having a blast with it! :D

Which is my only comfort when I want to slap myself with a rubber chicken for vidding waaaaay too much right now! o_@ But for some reason, I'm just really, really, REALLY inspired to vid so... Here comes another one. *blush* ;)

This is my first time using Vegas Movie Studio 12 and so far I'm not having too much trouble with it, other than a brief freak-out when I opened the cookie cutter AND IT LOOKS NOTHING LIKE MY OLD COOKIE CUTTER ZOMG WHERE IS THE TIMELINE AND HOW DO YOU KEYFRAME MOTION HALP. (I did finally figure it out. ;) )

*hugs and cookies for everybody* ♥♥♥!!!

This will surprise absolutely nobody who's on my Tumblr because I've been rather hardcore reblogging Teen Wolf for the past, oh, couple of weeks or so since it sucked me in, ;) but I wanted to pass the fun along to my LJ peeps as well! So here are a few reasons why, IMO, this show is worth your time (at least to check it out; homegirl here makes no promises that you'll like it, of course ;) )...

I tried to keep the spoilers to a bare minimum. I mean, I had to tell you WHY I liked certain things but I did my best not to lob huge spoiler grenades in the process. ;) But still, to be fair, consider this a SPOILER WARNING FOR SEASONS 1 AND 2 OF TEEN WOLF. If you absolutely don't want to know a thing about either season, then don't click the link. However, if you're willing to let me try to convince you to give this one a try and don't mind some basic info, then please do come on it! :D

Yes, there WILL be at least one picture of a hot, shirtless dude under this cut if you scroll down far enough ;) Also, some of this is copypasta'd ;) from my Tumblr post so if it suddenly starts giving you deja vu that would be why ;)  )

I admit, my first reaction to hearing that they were remaking my beloved 1987 "Beauty and the Beast" was sort of "NooooOOOOOOOOoooooOOOoooOOooo!!!" *throws self dramatically to the floor* I mean, come on, how could you possibly reboot Catherine and Vincent's epic love story? How could you even hope to find somebody who could match Ron Perlman's amazing portrayal?

And seriously, if you've never heard him do his "Vincent" voice, you are MISSING SOMETHING. Clicky click for an example embedded under the cut ;) )

I'd been intending to check out Person of Interest ever since I first heard about it but it conflicted with a few other shows on at the same time (the darn DVR needs at least one more tuner, c'mon! :P ;) ) and so I never got around checking it out at CBS' site.

But several Person of Interest vids have come through LVI recently and they renewed my interest in it (Official Copyright Holders, please take note of how that happened. Fanvids = me wanting to watch your show, ergo fanvids are GOOD. You should embrace vids and welcome them as the amazing free advertising that they are! ;) ). Especially since that means that now I want to vid your show, therefore, I will be buying your DVD set when it's available in addition to tuning in AND in turn giving your show some good word of mouth. VIDS = WIN/WIN for us all, doncha know? ♥! ;)

Sadly, I've missed most of the early eps now and CBS' site only has as, at this moment, eps 8, 11, 12 and 13. I caught ep 7 before it fell off to make room for 13, which just aired this past Thursday. However, it was ep 11, "Super" that hooked me liek woah.

So, under the cut, let me share some *squee* with you and who knows? Maybe you'll be interested enough to check it out, too? ;) That is, if you're not already watching, of course! ♥!

Ever think you're being watched? )

I got the chance to catch the first 3 episodes of "Alcatraz" (the 2 hour pilot and the episode after that) and I enjoyed it. Is anybody else watching?

'Cause I don't have enough fandoms yet *blush* ;) )
