THE BLACK­LIST

SCT, 8.40pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

THERE may be some­thing en­tirely fa­mil­iar about the el­e­ments of this spy thriller, but what takes this to another level is the wicked ge­nius of James Spader as mas­ter ma­nip­u­la­tor Ray­mond Red­ding­ton. His char­ac­ter has been com­pared to An­thony Hop­kins’ Han­ni­bal Lecter – an ap­pro­pri­ately chill­ing com­pli­ment for an ac­tor so en­tirely in com­mand of his craft. In this episode, the FBI searches for a high- rank­ing Chi­nese spy named Wu­jing, who Red claims hired him to help de­code a clas­si­fied CIA trans­mis­sion.
