FBI - Family Man television review

When a United States Senator’s (Eion Bailey) daughter is kidnapped Agents Maggie Bell (Missy Peregrym) and OA (Zeeko Zaki) lead the FBI in search of the kidnappers who are demanding an $100 million ransom. The investigation isn’t helped by the Senator’s unwillingness to disclose information about an old affair or enemies from his past with grudges. And after a reporter breaks the news, the chance of finding the baby alive drops even more.

FBI - Crossfire television review

Snipers make for good television. Killing from a distance, with an ability to flee the scene before they can be apprehended, they present a different kind of challenge for local and federal law enforcement (or their TV equivalent). In the latest episode of FBI, Agents Maggie Bell (Missy Peregrym) and OA (Zeeko Zaki) track a sniper who will kill multiple targets at two different locations. While the victims appear unconnected, the settings are not which eventually leads the FBI to identifying the shooter (Michael C. Williams) and a young man (Tim Johnson Jr.) working with him. Over the course of the episode we see Maggie’s boss (Sela Ward) support and push Bell to make the tough calls (while both testing and grooming the younger agent for a larger role withing the FBI in the years to come).

FBI - Prey television review

A young woman stabbed repeatedly and left for dead in the woods leads the FBI to uncover 18 previous victims and a human sex trafficking ring. The survivor’s accounts lead FBI Agents Maggie Bell (Missy Peregrym) and OA (Zeeko Zaki) on the hunt for the traffickers and the dozens of other girls, including the victim’s sister, who were brought over from the Ukraine with promises of jobs in New York and put to work as prostitutes. Those who spoke out, or broke the rules, ended up in the woods in an unmarked grave.

FBI - Green Birds television review

The second episode of FBI is stronger than the first as FBI Agents Maggie Bell (Missy Peregrym) and OA (Zeeko Zaki) hunt for teenage girls who have been turned by ISIS into perpetrating chemical attacks in New York, first at a restaurant salad bar and later at a market. The death of the first poisoner (Rebecca Gruss) leads Bell and her partner to another local girl turned by the group and explores how ISIS targets those who they can turn into loyal soldiers and martyrs. The episode gives us more of Kristen Chazal (Ebonee Noel) working the dark web angle and helping to identify the girls, and the introduction of Sela Ward, recasting one of the Pilot’s weaker characters.

FBI - Pilot television review

Although it also relies on a large supporting cast, FBI is a little more centrally focused than Dick Wolf‘s previous creation Law & Order which split time with police and lawyers every week. Here the focus stays primarily on FBI Agent Maggie Bell (Missy Peregrym) and her partner (Zeeko Zaki) who are the first on scene for two bombings in New York City and later a third, all organized by the same mastermind. Maggie takes it personally when the mother of one of the bombing victims blames Maggie for saving her life and not letting her go after her son (who almost certainly died in the first blast – seriously, it exploded exactly where the kid was standing) before the building was dropped by a follow-up explosion killing more civilians, firefighters, police, and aid workers.
