My estimation, Blacklist is a much better show than GOT.
I may be seeing a pattern of sorts here... my two childhood television heroes were Richard Boone's Paladin character and then George Stevens, i.e. Kingfish in the Amos-Andy show, both men of wealth and taste in their own environments, but Redington is really serious about being a man of wealth and taste.
The day has to be coming when a first grade teacher asks some little boy what he wants to be when he grows up and the kid says:
I want to be a man of wealth and taste, like Raymond Reddington.
