Anybody watching?

Really enjoying the story, but …

More proof that network TV writers don’t quite get the Internet. Good lord, I’m almost 50, and … okay:

Supermodel-looking main character is the main suspect in a terrorist bombing.

Girl, if you want to hide, scrub off that damned makeup! Holy crap, how many sites have you seen showing “celebrities” and “porn stars” without their makeup And seen how they look completely different?

Good grief, the newspapers are calling you “Bomber Babe” and printing photos of you looking hot! So just … wipe off the “babe” makeup. Nobody will recognize you.

I started watching the first episode, started off fairly predictable.

Then we have the explosion where buildings fall and she is knocked to the ground…

…and there ain’t a mark on her. Make up is intact. At worst, she got some dust on her clothes.

We’re watching it. It’s fun, a bit cheesy, and addictive. I normally don’t go for shows like it. I find the storyline compelling because it brings out the conspiracy theorist in me :wink:

I can’t remember the name of the woman playing Alex, but I’ve read that she’s a Bollywood icon with over 50 movies to her credit. But of course she’s going to wear makeup! That’s what makes the whole thing so cheesy and unbelievable!

It’s Grey’s Anatomy with guns. I was hoping for something more like CSI or Law & Order.

I can take or leave the show. One thing I find interesting though, is, up until this show aired, “Quantico” was never a part of my lexicon. Now that I know it, I keep hearing Quantico being referenced in other cop type shows.


Wow, really? It’s mentioned in just about every show that has FBI agents from Bones and Without a Trace to The X-Files and Sleepy Hollow.

You’ve hit upon what’s bothering me about the show. I like the latter-day segments, where it’s more Person of Interest-type conspiracy. But the earlier segments, where they’re actually in Quantico, are indeed Grey’s Anatomy with guns.

Keeping the character’s identity intact through all scenes is more important than realism. As kids we used to joke how, one moment, the Green Hornet is on the ground roughing it with the bad guys, immediately followed by him standing straight, his black business/fighting suit unruffled, and proceeds to enter the evil boss’ lair.

I watched the first few episodes but then gave up. One of the annoyances was that every recruit (and most of the rest of the cast) had a deep secret. (She’s really twins! He’s not really gay! He’s a mole for FBI management! Et cetera)
