Quantico Reviews & Ratings

60 minutes

A diverse group of recruits has arrived at the FBI Quantico Base for training. They are the best, the brightest and the most vetted, so it seems impossible that one of them is suspected of masterminding the biggest attack on New York City since 9/11.

First episode was okay. Second episode is the last I will watch. The story line in the Academy is all they should have stuck to. It seems like EVERY character has something to hide and there are references to things that haven't happened yet EVERY few minutes. Priyanka should stick to bollywood. She is soooo not good! Overly dramatic.

I've rated this low despite the exciting and interesting plot because something about it just feels forced and the acting is just okay. It seems like it is the type of show that needs a few episodes before it finds its footing. Unfortunately, it may be cancelled before it can do well, so I've put this on the back burner; if it survives the whole season I'll binge watch the episodes when they are available for streaming online.

Okay, I give up, and am ranting because this had the potential to be really good. It's such a waste. I really liked this at the start but after 18 episodes of constant flashbacks and ridiculous plot twists and turns, I just give up. Adding in a Scientology-like 'cult' to the mix seems like a last ditch effort by the showrunners to make it all more complex - it just makes it less credible and believable. Keep it Simple, Showrunners!!!

The constant breathless voice of the lead actress (yes, I know she's beautiful and a fairly okay (if rather over-the-top) actress but does her character have to play the ingenue and always be so naive??? Also, why has she had affairs with two of the leads and now is flirting with another trainee??? If it were a man doing so, I'd write the same thing, her character is there to learn but they just keep pushing her into more relationships - well, guess what people who make tv - a woman can lead a show and not *need* to have romantic involvements with other characters. Do they think a woman can't hold hold down a show on her own? Well, they can and they do! I am so insulted by this.

Combined with the movie-of-the-week acting by everyone else (fake long-haired Shelby and her bf and his Desperate Housewife mother most of all), it's completely lost the plot.

Last of all, the ridiculous intertwining of the lives of trainees and tutors must have anyone who's actually gone or taught at Quantico squirming at how nonsensical that would be and what an embarrassment to that fine institution this show is. Good concept, rubbish plot and casting. I'm out, I don't even care who did what anymore. I love plot twists when a showrunner can keep a hold of them but when they lose control, I can't stand it. Sad but true, I really did like Quantico, eps 1-8.

This show has me confused. One second I love it and the next it bores me to death. It is very good looking, in all areas. Spoiler alert Caleb and Shelby's relationship drives me nuts. They are so incredibly good together and I definitely hope there is more of them to come but it so unbearable to watch all of the bumps in there story (I know it's gonna be worth it when they finally gets back together though). It is very difficult to follow the twisting plot especially because of the fact that the episodes keep switching between present day and flashbacks, but at the same time it makes the show really interesting to watch and the writers always keeps us on the edge of our seat.

First two episodes watched, and so far I'm really into it! I've noticed shows doing this a lot more lately where they will jump into this HUGE future event that you just NEED to know what's going on NOW, but than they'll go right back to the beginning of something and slowly reveal everything until it collides together. Like How to Get Away with Murder. And I am eating up this technique!

Fast paced, brilliantly casted, it keeps you at the edge of your seat. Love the two timelines, especially the time they spend in training. I love this show!

All the flash backs. Why can't the story move forward and just tell a story you can follow. It just keeps jumping around.

Every single character is lying about and hiding something. No one can be trusted. You don't even know if the lead character is really innocent. They could turn it around and say she isn't later.

I don't know who to root for and who to believe and that really annoys me. There is no one to care about in this show.

Its just a waste of time to watch.

Quantico begins amazingly. The thrilling visuals and high stakes in this FBI drama are addictive. Priyanka Chopra as main character Alex Parrish is impeccably acted. But the plot does get overly convoluted for a while. There's also the occasional sub-par actor. Overall, Quantico is worth your time. Or at the very least a Netflix binge.
