Two new rookie F.B.I. agents hop into work trying to solve a case as part of a team other other agents.
A boy is kidnapped. Kidnapping is a Federal offense that involves the F.B.I., but here we're told this is a special squad of agents, but why is a special squad investigating a kidnapping? There's no reason for it and it doesn't showcase what the series focused around or its characters.
It's unremarkable, all seems the same and it has no identity -- it looks like it could be interchanged with any other bland cop or governmental agency drama.
There's no style to it, nothing that says "You're watching our show". The cinematography is off, the editing is annoying, the score is unremarkable and present at times where it doesn't even need to be there. And the score is nondescript and has no identity, it's also interchangeable.
They'll all different actors and actresses, but the characters are so unremarkable and bland they kind of all blend together.
F.B.I. agents do real research and detective-like work out on the field, but here they run across a witness who can't remember something for sure, and within minutes one of the rookies is suggesting the tired old cliché of hypnosis. It's insulting to real agents and the viewers.
The whole thing is a struggle to watch, there's no involvement, you feel nothing for the characters or the guest stars, and it becomes obvious why this didn't last passed one season. To make matters worse, this is only part one of the pilot. Yes, it's in two parts.
