This NBC show and TV program started in 2013 with a fun premise: rogue, billionaire, murderous ex-FBI Red Reddington surrenders to the bureau after being on the run. Ctch9ng bad guys with information he can provide.

He insists on mentoring newbie agent Liz Keen who may be his daughter and whose husband, Tom, is a double agent. This show grew TO BE confusing and overloaded with extraneous characters, some bailed out @ Season 2.

One confusing show in my opinion NBC "Black List" https://youtu.be/8k6QIx971LM
