Television's most riveting mystery unfurls against a backdrop of steamy seduction, maddening conspiracies and nerve-shattering suspense. Alex Parrish is one of a diverse group of young recruits at the FBI Quantico Base. Despite intriguing personal secrets and complicated pasts, Alex and her fellow "NATs" (New Agents In Training) are the best, brightest, most thoroughly vetted candidates in the U.S., so it seems impossible that one of them could be a traitor.

The Glass Ceiling:
I need you to listen to me. And I need you to listen closely. ... You fought for the truth. You don't quit. I see that in you, and that will take you far. But it will also get you in trouble. You and I have a lot in common. More than you know. And that is why, Alex, I believe that you are the only trainee here who can do what I was never able to do... shatter the glass ceiling.

They favor men for promotions. They protect them from punishment, no matter their weaknesses, no matter what they do. Don't be fooled by their faces. You have to be willing to play dirty. Because that, it seems, is the only thing that works.

The FBI is still a man's world, and in a man's world... men get away with murder. It's too late for me. But it's not for you. They are going to try to hold you down. They are going to try to hold you accountable for things that they never would be. But don't let them. You keep fighting. You do what you have to do.

At the FBI, an arrest is not a win. Your job, your case is only won with a conviction. It is the only thing that matters. You have to prove that your suspect is guilty to get the justice that the victim and their family deserve. The key to building that case is a suspect interview.

Super Bowl 42. Giants won 17-14. Spoiled the Pats' perfect season. And an hour after the game ended, five Giants fans got into a fight with four Patriots fans in the parking lot of a New Haven club. One of the Patriots fans was killed. Is this a hate crime? What if I told you that the Patriots' fans were black, the Giants' fans white? Anyone reconsidering? And if I told you that the white male who was charged with stabbing and killing the black male had once belonged to a militia group? So, what if I told you at the time of the stabbing, Mr. Connors had reformed? What if I told you that he had married a black woman and had three beautiful children with her? Confusing, isn't it? It's the FBI's job to investigate and prosecute violent hate crimes. But determining which violent offenses were motivated by bias is one of the toughest jobs the FBI has to do. So, you are going to look at cases that were presented to the FBI for investigation.

Now, we should warn you... The SF-86 can get very, very personal, which is why we give it to you at this stage of your training because you know each other better. We ask for exhaustive details about your home and personal life, your ideological beliefs, drug and alcohol use, your personal finances, and, yes, your s*x lives because these areas... s*x, money, and drugs... have historically been the areas where good agents go bad, so be painstakingly honest because this form will reveal whatever it is you are hiding.

No matter how surrounded you are by lies, don't let them in. Resist, because someday, you are going to be asked to follow an order you don't agree with, cut a corner for the greater good... and in that moment, you're going to have to decide who you want to be. It was all theater. We were just players.

I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. The main character Alex draws you in and keeps you there. The supporting cast has a lot of secrets that really keeps the series going and you guessing.

An enticing show about life at an FBI academy for aspiring agents starring Priyanka Chopra as Alex Parrish, top of her class. At the academy, not only are they studying how to find secrets while working for the Bureau, they also have each other's secrets to unveil. In the present time, there is a terrorist attack and Alex Parrish is accused of it. While she was once working for the Bureau, she is now running from them to escape her sentence and figure out who is behind the terrorist attack.

Exciting series if you like a mystery and don't mind all the red herrings. Yes, the acting isn't always top notch, and I could've done without most of the romantic entanglements, but the drama is there, and a look behind the training in the F.B.I. was revealing, if perhaps not completely realistic. Integrated cast and especially the presence of newcomer Priyanka Chopra made viewing this long season worthwhile!

How did i make it through? I must have too much time to waste.
So theres a bunch of new trainees who all rat on each other but sleep around and somehow say they are friends. Each one got through allllll the fbi pre investigations with little secrets in their lives so their so called friends can use them when convenient..and each trainee is smarter then bureau vets....OH COME ON!! Acting is b movie grade. Do i want my 16 hrs back??? Nahhhh..it was more of a comedy when u look at it as baywatch in the FBI....

A rainbow colored FBI agent incoming class filled with terrorist suspects despite of intense background vetting? How about the premise that a bunch of NAT's (new agent trainees) stumbled through a giant school of red herrings to identify a terrorist yet somehow ended with the most likely culprit right under their noses? May be hours of wild romances among trainers and students while undergoing mostly superficial lessons in ethics, behavioral science, investigative and intelligence techniques, interrogation, forensic science, counterterrorism, counterintelligence, cybersecurity, criminal investigations etc.? ... Not to say it was entirely boring with nearly SIXTEEN hours of meandering film to cherry pick from. At least the glass ceiling part was quite good (see "Quotes".)

This was actually one of my favourite shows this fall. It was about a F.B.I. agent Alex Parrish trying to find out who framed her for a bunch of killings in the NYC and why. It is also about family relationships, friendships, and how she and the rest of the Quantico cast became FBI agents. Plus Mark Pellegrino from Supernatural & Marcia Cross from Melrose Place/ Desperate Housewives are in it and they play one of the characters parents. Also I liked Priyanka Chopra's character Alex Parrish that woman on the show is a goddess, she is also someone who doesn't take a backseat to anyone, and she is a woman who basically has it all brains braun and beauty all in one. Priyanka Chopra is one of my favourite actresses she did a fantastic job playing Alex Parrish and she won a People's Choice award in 2016 for new actress entering a television show. So hats off and kudos to Priyanka Chopra.
