Ads for this show have billed it as a sort of "Grey's
Anatomy" type of show, but frankly, I don't see it. If any
comparison can be made, it reminds me more of "NCIS: Los
Angeles" a little bit.
A class of new recruits at Quantico are being trained. We
get to know about a few of them. Just to go by the
stereotypes, there's a gay guy, a studly white guy, a Mormon
guy, and a pretty boy; and a blonde girl; and two
dark-haired girls, one of whom is Indian and the other is
Muslim. We also get to know the guy training them, Liam;
he's a bit of an alcoholic and this job is his last chance.
His boss, Miranda, and he, used to have a relationship. This
all sounds very cliche, I know.
However, once he start getting to know this young men and
women, and their secrets, it starts to get interesting.
Also, there's a big explosion, and the Indian girl is found
as the only one alive, so the FBI thinks she's the terrorist
behind it. Parts are seen in flashback as they question her
about the other recruits. At least one of them dies
before the bomb goes off, and possibly a second one as well.
This seems like the kind of show that wants to keep you
guessing, so they throw somewhat obvious stuff at you, but
then they do a 90 degree turn to throw you off balance.
It reminds me a little bit of "How to Get Away with Murder,"
in that sense, but it's not nearly as well written. The
characters are not quite as well-fleshed out in this show.
Hopefully that will improve.
I think this show is going to be a big hit, but I've been
wrong before! It all depends on whether the second episode
is just as good, or even better.
