It was one of the top new television shows of this past season; CBS’s FBI is one of the best shows on the network with good character development and compelling stories. But at the end of the day, it only serves as a television drama snack of a show.
FBI is basically about an elite team from the New York City Federal Bearua of Investigation that tackles major cases to save this country. The team consists of FBI agent Maggie Bell (played by Missy Peregrym), who’s also a widow of a Wall Steet Journal investigative reporter was murdered. She’s as tough as she comes and when it comes to putting personal feelings aside, she can get the job done. FBI Agent Omar Adom “O.A. Zidan (played by Zeeko Zaki) who’s not only Bell’s partner but also an ex-army soldier.
Not to mention, Jubal Valentine (played by Jeremy Sisto) who’s not only the FBI assistant special agent in charge but he’s the master motivator and probably one of my favorite characters on the show. Plus you got Sela Ward as FBI agent in charge but also the team’s supervisor Dana Mosier.
The first season of the show is a bit bumpy but around episode eight is where they find their identity. The team tackles on bombings, white supremacist, a corrupt witness protection program, kidnapping, even Maggie gets closure of the death of her husband. But it’s not a Dick Wolf series unless you have a spinoff in place. They have FBI: Most Wanted. You can catch the series when it premieres sometime in the midseason of 2020.
I very much enjoy this series from the start to the end. Its got its moments with good writing and character development. While Peregrym and Zaki work great together; Sisto really shines in this series balancing out his wicked sense of humor and dramatic moments. I literally can’t get enough of watching and listening to what he says to the team of employees as they hunt for their suspect. It just brings me back to his Law and Order day. Overall, It might not be the best drama on television; but it sure does feeds the television palate once you watch and finish an episode. I give this first season an 8/10.
