News & Interviews for Quantico: Season 1
If Grey's Anatomy set at Quantico with a long-term terrorism plot sounds bad to you, proceed no further: This is not your show. If it sounds kind of appealing, as it does to me, Quantico may be your least execrable show of fall.
At the heart of the action is Priyanka Chopra, a huge international star who could be about to make a splash in the United States.
What the real-life world really doesn't need right now is another devastating terrorist attack on New York City or grossly incompetent screening of would-be FBI agents at the Quantico Academy.
TV demands suspension of disbelief, but enough suspension to see Grand Central destroyed in the pilot? New York has suffered enough trauma; it doesn't need any more, especially rendered in the service of prime-time entertainment.
Quantico is so taut and terrifically calibrated that it may out-Shonda ABC treasure Shonda Rhimes, the acknowledged master of sexy, twisty, expertly-paced dramas.
As confusing as it was at times, there were parts of the first episode - which balanced soapiness, action, and, curiously enough, successful bits of comedy - that did pique our interest.
For the moment, it can be interesting to see how this curious mix works. [Full Review in Spanish]
[This season] lost me a lot of times in the middle of the season but the beginning and end of the season were phenomenal.
We wanted to like it, simply because a network TV show about a glamorous FBI agent sounds like fun, but we couldn't get past the open swiping of other shows' concepts and style.
Quantico seems to try to paper over the cracks of poorly drawn characters and implausibility by heaping on more of the same.
Lack of originality aside, the pilot offers a taut, surprising hour of thrills as it introduces its young characters and plants the seeds of their relationships.
Audience Reviews for Quantico: Season 1
Dec 31, 2020I think they dropped ball on what could been good show. Also Priyanka Chopras character ot on my nerves and if they were just going to solve 1 terrorist attack it would been alot better if they did 12 episode season instead of 22 grueling drawn out episodes. I would have enjoyed it more if they had done like FBI or FBI Most wanted by solving all the different crimes the FBI investigate.
Dec 20, 2020This was a really great show for the first two seasons. It always had me at the edge of my seat waiting for what was next to come. The show should have ended after the second season because the third season barely correlates to the first two seasons. Seeing how the show was canceled after season three, I'm not the only person who felt the same. I think if you were to watch this show, stop after season two and let your mind imagine what were to come next. I wish that is what I did because watching the third season ruined it for me.
Jun 20, 2020The more I watched, the more I realized how much I hate this show, and I hate Priyanka Chopra, or at least her character. Maybe I'm bitter because this show wasted so much of my time, but maybe it's my fault for believing it would all be worth watching...it's not. The writers try too hard to create twists and turns that they became pretty predictable, or too convoluted. Characters are one dimensional, and too easy to turn on each other during one episode, to see them forgive and forget as easy the next. And worst of all, the main character is not really someone you want to root for or want to care about. She's spoiled, got into other people's business, which usually didn't end up good for them, and she used the people who cared about her the most, because she always thought she knew better. Don't even give this show a chance, you'll hate yourself for wasting so much time.
Oct 30, 2019Perfect show with full entertainment.
Feb 19, 2019I liked it just barely enough to finish season 1, but i have to say, network programing is so dumbed down that it's hard to watch. The writing and editing was poor. The plots twists are fairly predicable and writing was meh. Acting was par for a network tv show.
Jan 29, 2019Best way to describe this show is to describe how the show's writers meetings go: Head writer: Ok, people, give me all of your ideas. Writers: Provide myriad of plots and ideas. Head writer: Ok, let's do all of them, at the same time.
Sep 14, 2018The dumbest show ever! 4-5 girls I can't tell apart. from a cop show to a high school love fest. I've seen nothing that resembles anything remotely real to life.
Sep 11, 2018Flat script, boring characters, predictable twists... plain american tv show - laaaame.
Aug 18, 2018Hard to find much to like here. Shallow acting, predictably forced plot twists, hackneyed characters. The characters bounce between overly strong and confident to completely helpless and vulnerable from minute to minute. Hard to picture most of the group actually succeeding beyond day one of FBI recruit academy. The women wearing low-cut tops and the men overly-tight shirts (neither of which would meet uniform standard) are probably the only reason some people watch this dribble.
May 19, 2018this is objectively the worst show I've every seen. The only good part is how hilarious i tis to watch due to the atrocious writing, acting and plot.
