Critical Condition: FBI

FBI | Prime, 8.30 Monday

☆☆☆☆FBI reworks the requisite good guy/bad guy formula as seen in every other FBI/CIA/Homeland Security network drama since 9/11 and turns the narrative inside out …  The series by Law & Order creator Dick Wolf is a fast-paced drama that’s engaging and timely but still polished and slick enough to deliver the type of escapist entertainment Law & Order fans recognise.” — Los Angeles Times.

☆☆☆Law & Order franchise creator Dick Wolf is one of the executive producers of CBS’ new fall series, FBI. So you know what that means: reliable, meat-and-potatoes drama that doesn’t reinvent the wheel but also won’t disappoint viewers who’ve tuned into all of those Wolf-produced procedurals (cops, firemen, lawyers, doctors) for nearly 30 years.” — New York Post.

☆☆FBI focuses on the hard-working agents of the New York office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. They’re going to tackle major cases every week, keeping America and New York City safe. And if enough viewers watch the first episode, you can bet that plans for FBI: Los Angeles and FBI: Chicago and FBI: Miami will begin almost immediately.” — The Hollywood Reporter.

☆☆☆ “Although the story isn’t ripped from the headlines like those in many Wolf shows, it employs contemporary lightning rods that will resonate with viewers on both sides of the political aisle: MS-13, a gang with Central American roots frequently cited by President Trump in his arguments for stronger immigration enforcement, and white nationalists, the scourge of Trump’s opponents.” — USA Today.

☆☆ “The pilot proceeds with the regularity of a metronome, ticking off the moments, or the beats, or cliches. You can see every twist coming from around every corner, anticipate the climax long before it climaxes. Any deviation would be jarring, almost as if a law had been broken. Along with writing themselves, formulas also tend to be ironclad. No surprises, please. No going rogue.” — Newsday.
