Quantico - The Complete First Season (2015 - 2016/ABC/Disney DVD Set)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: A Episodes: B+

Nine months ago, Alex Parrish (Priyanka Chopra) was training with her fellow NATs (New Agents in Training), but after a terrorist attack on Grand Station, Alex finds herself framed as the mastermind when a tip told them it was done by someone inside the FBI. Now, she is being hunted down by her former colleagues and people who she once called friends. It's a race against time as she must discover the true culprit and she will have to discover who friend and who is her enemy in Quantico - The Complete First Season (2015 - 2016).

Parrish is a young, beautiful and newest FBI agent, graduated at the top of her class she was expected to become greatest FBI agent Quantico had ever produced. Instead, she wakes up in the middle of a terrorist bombing ...and she is framed as it's bomber. As the evidence points towards the fact that it could only have been done by someone inside the FBI, she finds herself hunted by the FBI and the entire US government. No one will believe she is innocent, she search through the ruins and for the clues to discover who is the traitor among them. But whomever it is, they seem always one step ahead of her.

This is an action packed series about how one agent can out wit the entire FBI and US Government when she finds herself framed and wrongly accused. The series keeps on jumping between the present and the past as it shows how the character uses her training to keep ahead of the agents after her. However, in the second a half of the season, the character's personality does a complete 180 and seems to be helpless when the terrorist directly blackmails her by threatening her friends lives. The series makes the FBI look like glorified bullies and half the FBI problems and cases would be solved if the higher ups didn't spend time and government resources trying to covering up their failures (by blaming others for their mistakes) and if the agents didn't sleep around have affairs so often. Odd, but it is well worth seeing.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image and the lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 mix are as good as they could ever be for this format and play well together. Extras include ''Run'' video commentary, featurettes Welcome to Quantico, Who Did it?, Bloopers and Deleted Scenes.
