If you like “The Blacklist”, then you might enjoy…


If you like The Blacklist then you will most likely like some or all of the following recommended TV-shows. I find them to have some degree of similarity with The Blacklist.

An FBI most wanted fugitive, Raymond Reddington, joins FBI to help bring down criminals and terrorists. He agrees to help catching these bad guys only if he gets Elizabeth Keen, a rookie FBI profiler, as his handler. After their first victory, a list of dangerous but unknown criminals is revealed by Red. And with a special teem they start to catch them one by one.



John Reese, a former CIA operative, is recruited by Harold Finch,billionaire software-genius, to prevent violent crimes. Harold created a machine for the government, a machine that is designed to detect acts of terror before they can happen. This is done by monitoring the entire world through every cell-phone, email and surveillance camera. Harold discovered that the machine sees everything from potential terrorist acts to violent crimes that involve ordinary people. The government considered everything but acts of terror “irrelevant”, so Harold made the system capable of giving him the social security number of a person involved in a future violent crime. Harold and John works together to try to stop these crimes before they happen.

This show has a good timing with Snowden`s released documents. If we only get a little father in the AI field we might soon have machines like this. I love the show, but hate the thought of governments getting machines like this.


Elementary is a modern take on the classic stories of Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock is now living and working as a detective in New York, although he lived and worked in England earlier. He works as a consultant to the NYPD and is assisted by the beautiful Joan Watson, a former surgeon, who now works as a sober companion. She is originally hired to help Sherlock stay away from his coke habit, but also ends up as an assistant for Sherlock.

It`s not the best Sherlock series, but it is still a good show. Interesting to have a female Dr. Watson.


Gabriel is a government agent who has been given a microchip brain implant.This has given him access to internet and government databases, and he can create 3D renderings of scenes in his mind.

This is a quite good series. You should definitely check it out if you like this kind of crime shows.

Both The Blacklist and Intelligence have some kind of government spy kind of feel going for them.


A seemingly typical couple in 1980s Washington, D.C. are actually undercover Soviet spies. They have to deal with their unknowing kids and a FBI agent as a neighbour.

I was not that into this show. Not exactly sure why.


Neal Caffey, a charming con artist, escapes from a maximum security prison, only to be recaptured by FBI Agent Peter Burke. But instead of going back to prison he is given the choice to help the bureau bring down other elusive criminals in exchange for his eventual freedom.

This is an interesting show, lots of cons and tricks. Cool to watch. If you like crime shows, then you should give it a try.

The Blacklist and White Collar both have criminals helping the law catching bad guys.


Patrick Jane a former famous psychic outs himself as a fake after a serial killer called Red John kills his family. Jane blames himself because he right before the murder where mocking Red John on national TV in his psychic persona. He starts working as a consultant for the California Bureau of Investigation so he easier can hunt down Red John. His skills as a mentalist, ex psychic comes in handy when working on cases because he is exceptional at drawing logical conclusions from minute details.

This is a really good show. They drag the Red John story out a little to long, but that`s OK since the main part of the show are the individual cases.

Both are about police consultants.


Will Graham is an FBI criminal profiler with a unique way of locking at things. He can empathize with anyone which makes it easy for him to get in to the mind of killers. This skill sets is hard on Will and he is teamed up with the psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Together they help FBI to catch criminals and work on Will`s mental issues. This show follows the early days of Dr. Hannibal Lecter, before he get known as the cannibalistic serial killer.

This is an interesting show. It`s worth watching, especially if you like crime shows or are a fan of the movies.


Sydney Bristow is an international spy recruited out of college and trained for espionage and self-defense. Sydney Bristow is on the suffice a young, athletic, college graduate, but she is not your average grad student. Sydney was recruited her freshman year as a secret agent for SD-6, a top-secret branch of the CIA. However, her life are soon to be even more complex and dangerous than that of the average spy.

This is an excellent spy thriller, full of fast paced action and great stories. Even my mother that is not to found of action shows where hooked on this one.

Spies, master criminals and government agencies. They both have them,


Sherlock is a new contemporary take on the classic Arthur Conan Doyle stories. Many of the details and stories from the original books are kept, only modernized to fit in today’s society and technology. Now his most important tool, after his brilliant mind, is a modern smartphone. Doctor Watson is a fairly young medical veteran of the Afghan war. Together they navigate a web of cryptic clues and myriad of lethal killers to get at the truth

This is the best adoption of the Sherlock Holmes books I have ever watched. It`s truly exiting to watch Sherlock’s fast and leaping but accurate deductions. This is a show everyone should try out.


A group of convicts with exceptional skills at breaking out and tracking people are given a deal to shorten there sentence by helping a squad of U.S. marshals. This special squad is tasked with tracking at capturing escaped prisoners.

It`s a slightly above average show with some cool parts her and thee. I think one of the cooler parts is a one-sided crossover episode with Prison Break.

The Blacklist and Breakout Kings both have criminals helping the law catching bad guys.

So there you have it, 10 ideas for what to do after finishing The Blacklist. What do you recommend, please mention why you recommend it to?
