I was skeptical of this show, I figured it was going to be dumb but it is pretty fun. It has some 24-esque elements too it and certainly there are things that you will have suspend your disbelief (e.g., the graduates are given major positions soon after training and such)

Other thing I like about this show is there is a lot of diversity including Black, Latino, Asian, Indian, Middle Eastern, and beyond ethnicities there are lots of women and gay/bisexual characters as well. Also, the women are shown as strong and capable rather than being token characters.

I think if you like action type shows such as 24 (which it isn't the same at all but is a similar type show), then you might like it.

Major 24 vibes, but kinda in a good way. I fricken love Alex, the twins, the director. I really loved the whole cast it was amazing all the characters are bad asparagus and fully developed, I watched the whole thing and loved every minute of it.

We blasted through the season and it was really good. Nice twists and turns and I figured out the bad guy like 10 minutes before they made it known

I watched the first episode and didn't get hooked. Maybe I'll have to try again. I loved 24.

Yeah I'm not sure if you don't like the first episode if you'd like the rest, but I'd try another episode or 2.

I've been watching this on Netflix recently, about halfway through the first season, and I can't keep track of what's happening at all but I love it.

@strawberryrock it definitely jumps around a lot and I found some bits harder to follow. I think its a show that benefits from multiple viewings for sure because there is so much stuff going on.
