Too many ideas that fell apart and became a confusing mess.
    So true, but I wonder if it might make for a good drinking game. You know, whenever a gaffe occurs you take a sip of beer....it might be fun. Sometimes the ridiculous can still be entertaining. I watched the last few seasons of Dexter, so I know it's possible. lol

    Does anyone know where this show is being filmed?

    Us, too. I really like it and the back and forth between the academy going ons and now is interesting. Just when you think you know something is one way, they show you something else that makes you rethink it. It's definitely not a show you can half watch!
    I hate when the cops throw me in the back of the squad car ....like they didnít hear me call shotgun.

    Have to say this is my new favorite show, this and Blindspot. I like the mystery.

    Its a lot like How to get away with Murder, it really makes you pay attention. So, if I am tired and I know I am not following, I leave it for when I am not.

    I'm enjoying it. Frankly, I think this show is doing a better job with this narrative style than HTGAWM has done. Plus, I think there are more likable characters on this show. IMO, what really saves HTGAWM from being a bit dreadful is Viola Davis. There's a reason she gets accolades and nominations, while the show does not.

    This show is quick and fun and it keeps my interest. It's not going to win (or be nominated for) any Emmys, but then it IS network television. There isn't much Emmy-worthy stuff on network TV these days.

    Re: Quantico on ABC

    As of my writing this comment I have only read the first person's post in this thread because I don't want the rest of your comment to spoil anything for me. I had to stop in and say I'm really liking this show so far. I've only watched the first episode so I have some catching up to do (hence, my not wanting to read the rest of you guys' post) but I'm really liking what I've seen.

    This show has a "How To Get Away With Murder" feel about it..... young FBI recruits -vs- young aspiring attorneys. Flashbacks, that sort of thing I can't wait to find the time to catch up with the rest of you. I give this one a ---> Hope nothing comes in and ruins it for me.

    I would have preferred each epi to focus on Alex + 1 other trainee. Mashing all trainees' suspicious back story into 2 epis is a bit of a hot mess.

    I'm all caught up now. Funny how I'm not the only one who noticed this show has a "HTGAWM" feel about it. I actually like the hot mess chaos..... but I'm assuming that's because I get easily bored with story lines that flow routinely, predictable and sequential. To stay interested in a show (especially a new show), they usually have to keep me guessing.
