    Starts tonight in the States looking forward to seeing this as it's getting some decent Buzz.

    Is Jeremy Sisto playing his Law & Order character Lupo in this?

    Watched the first episode and it's not bad. Too early to tell how it will go.


  • Registered Users Posts: 56,376 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Nothing groundbreaking but a good introduction episode to the main cast members.

    Not bad.

    Like other Dick Wolf shows, it's very dry. Watchable though.

    Made it about 10 mins. Came to it because of Missy Peregrym and Rookie Blue. Outside of her character I thought it was rubbish..

    It has been savaged on IMDB.

    Julian McMahon set to star in an upcoming episode which will be a backdoor pilot to a spin off series FBI: Most Wanted.


  • Registered Users Posts: 56,376 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    WooHoo Alana de la Garza joins the cast as co lead to Julian McMahon in the spin off.


  • Registered Users Posts: 56,376 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    I've been enjoying this it's just a story of the week series with no real season arc and this weeks episode was great and may have opened up a rest of the season arc with a back story.


  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 54,504 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mr E


    The latest episode was great. Good acting by Missy too.

    I really like this show. This and SWAT show how the story of the week formula can work really well (and how Criminal Minds got very stale and samey).

    I am finding it becoming a just little bit too dumbed down. Far too much running commentary on everything that happens. She's great but he's a lump of wood! And Jubal taking a permanent holiday would do wonders for the show.

    That episode was last week. I usually like Julian, but I thought his character LaCroix was very unlikable in this. I'll give the spin-off a go, though. Maybe they will tone him down a bit.


  • Registered Users Posts: 56,376 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    I wasn't impressed by the backdoor pilot either to be honest but I will give it a go just for Alana de la Garza :)


  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 54,504 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mr E


    So that's the first season down. It's a very good show but not mind-blowing. Better than Criminal Minds though....

    That showdown in the shipyard was very good.

    I'll be back for the next season.


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,141 ✭✭✭✭ is_that_so


    Not watched the last one yet but will probably back. Could do without the Dick Wolf simplifications and if they can pay for acting classes for "OA" that would be even better. That and a permanent reassignment for the even worse acting Jeremy Sisto!


  • Registered Users Posts: 56,376 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Alana de la Garza is moving from the spin off show to the main show as a season regular and will continue to recur on the spin off show.


    The more Alana de la Garza on my TV screen the better.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,615 ✭✭✭ cena


    Isn't she already on the main show


  • Registered Users Posts: 75,445 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1


    It starts on Sky Witness on Thursday August 8th at 9pm

    I've dipped in and out of a few episodes now and it all seems a bit samey. Maggie and 'OA', the only two field agents in the FBI, (who between seem to have done everything it's possible to do in law enforcement) wisecrack and run around a lot. Jubal rubs the back of his head and shouts, a lot. Kristen walks around with a tablet. While Dana stares and tries to arrange her botox frozen features into a frown.

    The Most Wanted spinoff started last week and it was a good watch. More of the same as the main show, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Julian McMahon is always watchable.

    Henry Thomas had a good turn as villain of the week too...


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,027 ✭✭✭ Slippin Jimmy


    I enjoy this show. But I have wondered why there isn't more of a storyline in relation to the FBI tracking down suspects across a number of episodes.

    Also watched most wanted last week. More of the same really.


  • Registered Users Posts: 56,376 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    A by the book CBS show and like the rest enjoyable.


  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 54,504 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mr E


    The double crossover episode last week was great.
    It's not hard to imagine that racism like that exists in the States. Scary stuff.


  • Registered Users Posts: 56,376 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    I agree that was a great cross over and that kind of racism is sadly spreading across the world now.


    A double episode of FBI tonight as well as a Most Wanted episode.


  • Registered Users Posts: 56,376 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    The FBI double episode was actually a Network crossover with NBC's Chicago PD.

    I don't watch the Chicago shows so didn't watch the first part of the crossover that finishes on FBI.


  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 54,504 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mr E


    So there was a more content before the bus episode?

    No that was last weeks with a crossover with Most Wanted.



    Last nights FBI started on Chicago PD and finished on FBI it was also the season Finale as they also didn't get finished filming.

    However I don't think you need to have seen Chicago PD as it was just a character crossover not a main story crossover.

    Oh love the Chicagos! Loved this too and Most Wanted. I should have been a cop :D

    Took me a while to come around to Most Wanted, but it's on my weekly list now. The crossover episode was well done and very enjoyable.
