    • I am sick and tired of Indian actresses always jumping in bed with white males just to get noticed.
      They are all sellouts.

  • It’s too bad Alcatraz went nowhere – her character was poised to become a genuinely intriguing part of that particular puzzle, but it’s definitely a bonus for The Blacklist. Her casting makes it even more of a must-see show (which it became after I saw the awesome pilot).
