Fans of “The Blacklist” can hardly wait to see what twists and turns the show shares with the news season coming up. One of the best shows on television, fans are able to watch James Spader get in the cross hairs of good and evil yet still make it out alive. According to On Location Vacations on Tuesday, the show is on schedule for production and currently is filming in Chelsea Piers and in Staten Island.

The filming season in the New York City area has fans who are visiting the Big Apple on high alert. It isn't surprising to see stars from “The Blacklist,” “Blue Bloods” or even “White Collar” roaming around the streets to set up scenes for a camera shot. Being the city is so busy, usually the shows just shut off a section of the area and not a whole block like is typically seen in Los Angeles.

It’s obvious that “The Blacklist” really does rely on a good backdrop. With the scenarios set up in the action scenes as well as the dialog, the fans tune in to have a multi-faceted performance along with a dynamic story line. Filming in the New York City area definitely offers up a positive scenery that can’t be found in other locations. Of course, it would be unfair not to mention that New Jersey helps make the backdrop look good too as shots are seen from both sides of the Hudson River.

The Fresno Bee is reporting on Tuesday that the show also can be seen on DVD this week. "The Blacklist: The Complete First Season," offers up all the juice details from the very beginning of the series. Considered a standout performance by James Spader after watching the setup for the show, fans will understand why this one of TV's top dramas. The NBC television series follows Raymond "Red" Reddington (who is played by James Spader), a top criminal. Worthy of keeping around, he offers a wide variety of mysterious twists and ultimately helps the FBI find and stop some of the world's most notorious criminals.
