The Blacklist

About a week ago I got to see the first episode of the new criminal thriller "The Blacklist" and it totally got me hooked. I usually fall asleep as soon as there is too much action but this one feels different, it has that kind of psycological twist that makes me want to know more. Who is this criminal mastermind and what are his intentions? Is this all a game to him or is he after something more, something deeper? He says he wants Liz to be able to think like a criminal in order to see the bigger picture, what is that supposed to mean? 
In some way I think it might be that he is her father, and I don't know if I want that or not, it might make it all too easy. Still, I really recommend you to give it a chance. I know I will :)
