A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Terrorism is a major theme. Stereotypes about Muslims, Mormons, Jews, (etc.) are addressed by plot lines and characters. Lots of double-crossing, suspicion, and betrayal.
Positive Role Models
Many characters who seem reliable turn out not to be, though Alex is brave and determined. Both male and female characters are strong and resourceful -- as well as manipulative and untrustworthy. Diverse cast.
Violence & Scariness
Guns, shootings, killings, suicides, fighting, bombings, often in the name of terrorism.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Quantico is an FBI-based drama with strong themes relating to 9/11 and other terrorist acts. It highlights some of the stereotypes that exist about who's responsible for these kinds of crimes. There's lots of violence (guns, killings, suicides, explosions), some strong innuendo, rare drinking, and occasional iffy language.
Is It Any Good?
The intriguing series relies on a flashback-driven story style to purposely raise suspicions about cast members and highlight clues that will determine the identity of the actual "bad guy." It also underscores many of the preconceived notions that currently exist about different communities and the alleged threats they pose to the country.
While many of the events are predictable (some would argue implausible), what makes the series interesting is how the recruits interact with each other while slowly revealing themselves to the audience. Ultimately, the show is an entertaining puzzle that will force you to pay attention to details, and leave you mistrustful of everyone.
