Critic Consensus: Despite a set of stellar performances led by the capable Jennifer Carpenter, The Enemy Within stumbles into an overly formulaic narrative that fails to produce any real spark.

News & Interviews for The Enemy Within: Season 1
Carpenter and Chestnut solidly play their roles, but Enemy Within doesn't crackle the way The Blacklist did in early episodes. There's nothing particularly special going on here, and it's hard to muster the enthusiasm to say much more than that.
A generic FBI show, with a generic title, that had the good sense to cast Jennifer Carpenter as a helpful traitor.
No charm. No camaraderie or sexual tension. It's just familiar faces regurgitating dry, boring dialogue, as though reading from cue cards.
Just go back and watch The Blacklist from the beginning. You'll be watching a much more entertaining show.
