This review is less about the disc contents than it is about the show itself. First, the contents themselves are well mastered; the picture and sound are excellent. The special features give a lot of good back story about the characters, and the FBI unit. I haven't watched them all or in their entirety, but, the few minutes I did watch are worthwhile. What makes this program is the casting, the writing, and the concept behind it all. James Spader plays a creepy guy. He is not so much a "criminal mastermind" as a "criminal mastermind's, criminal mastermind". He has been wanted for 20 years, then just walks into an FBI office to give himself up. Why? Well, that is not clear; but, it is clear that he has an agenda; and wants the FBI to help him carry it out. He has a list of really nasty people who he is willing to give up; in return, he has some conditions: He will talk/work with only one agent; freedom of action; etc..
The reasons are never given; but, clues are sprinkled throughout the episodes. There is a great element of never knowing where, or what, or why some of the villains he gives up to the FBI. The producers keep a great element of suspense and mystery in all the episodes. James Spader is having great fun as a villain; all these combine to give us a great program. Season 1 is the start; Season 2 will give up a little more; who knows what the next few seasons will have? Only more good stuff, is my opinion. Buy this season! I cannot recommend it enough!
