ABC’s Quantico- Quick Review

Quantico, ABC, fall shows, Priyanka Chopra, FBI showThere are few shows for this fall that have been marketed and hyped as much as ABC’s ‘Quantico’.  It premiered last night so I had to check it out.  I was extra-keen to watch because I like the star Priyanka Chopra from her bollywood fame and I’m also a big fan of FBI and crime shows.

I thought Priyanka did a good job so far.  She provides the eye-candy and she did a respectable job with the American accent too.  Though not perfect, it was much better than that of Sakina Jaffrey in House of Cards.   The show itself has a number of characters who were barely introduced so there is potential for more interesting characters.  I wasn’t so compelled by the romantic interest thus far, played by Jake McLaughlin.

As for the show itself, the story line seems interesting.  An act of terrorism and a mystery of who is behind it.  There was a lot of flipping from present day to the past in telling the story that reminded me a lot of ‘How to Get Away with Murder’.  I didn’t think Quantico did as good of a job with the transitions as HTGAWM but it was only one episode.  I guess ABC thought that formula did well so why not try again.  It was interesting enough for me to watch a few more episodes and then I will decide whether it’s a keeper or not.  I suggest you do the same.
