THE PREMISE:A group of new FBI agents has arrived at the FBI Quantico base for training who are perfect, bright and the most evaluated, so it seems impossible that one of them is suspected of planing the biggest attack on New York City since 9/11.

THE FIRST IMPRESSION: Quantico is based on masterminding the biggest attack on New York City.The show revolves around the group of FBI agents,Priyanka plays the role of half Indian and half Caucasian FBI trainee named Alex Parrish agent in training at Quantico base .Priyanka Chopra’s character gets wrongly gets accused of planning in the fictional terrorist attack.

When the trailer for Quantico first came out,maybe TV reporters and critics called it Grey’s Anatomy. Qunatico feels the need to pack on twist after twist in it’s pilot and shareout shocks and surprises.Some of these twists range from clever to straight up ridiculous.Though there is still a lot to enjoy here.

The cast that Quantico has assembled is pretty solid,to support the show particularly Priyanka as Alex,the shows protagonist,Massri as the tough and guarded Nimah and Braddy as “the girl next door”.Quantico is actually a whole lot of fun.It’s only when the show tries to become a thriller it runs into problems,utilizing a narrative structure that goes back and forth from the new agents first day to nine months later,when a major terrorist attack has the FBI questioning everybody’s loyalty.The series makes the audiences plan fall through in the very first hour.In order to become the Sunday hit show it needs to settle down on the twists and focus more on the characters.
