ABC’s kind-of hit – which is, Empire apart, the only sort of hits networks have these days – Quantico starts in the UK tonight. The premise is that a new FBI recruit, Alex Parrish (the Indian actress Priyanka Chopra), is suspected of being responsible for a terrorist attack on New York City, and while she fights to clear her name there will be flashbacks to Alex and her group of trainees at the FBI’s academy in Quantico, Virginia. And, let’s face it, those of us who have watched American procedural dramas will already have heard enough about Quantico to be able to get through basic training ourselves. Reasonably well-received, with enough of a following to get a 22-episode order and, as of last week, renewed for a second season, Quantico sounds as if it might be worth a look. I’m not planning to review it, but I am planning to watch it (tonight, 9pm, Alibi).
And Amazon Prime releases season 2 of Bosch tomorrow – I love the Michael Connolly books on which the show is based, but have never seen it, and probably never will. Peak TV, eh? Which reminds me: Blindspot, Big Bang, and Modern Family are all returning soon for their post-hiatus runs, and Jane the Virgin will be starting season 2 before the end of the month. More about those shows and others in due course.
