Trivia

In a recent interview, Kevin Williamson revealed that one of the first ideas for this show was in his draft for Scream 3 (2000), the one movie of the franchise that he ended up not writing. The idea was that Sidney Prescott would arrive to a house to find a group of murdered people, implying that she was too late to save them. The twist would have been that at one moment, they would all start getting up, alive, and it would be revealed that they were all part of a cult following, "Ghostface." See more »

Why is FBI such a bunch of amateurs?
26 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

Really never take the time to write reviews but I felt I needed to say something about this show.

First of all, its nice to see Kevin Bacon in a TV-series. He makes a pretty good performance in the show. Even though he have been holding hands with about 5 guys now as they draw their last breath. Getting kind old...

But the story is really really bad and so unrealistic. FBI, HomeLand, NSA, SWAT they all appear like a bunch of clowns and amateurs. Getting killed all the time and can never catch up with the bad guys. Why is this??? How can a loose gathering of sociopaths be more organized, so infiltrated and stay so far ahead of the entire us law enforcement forces?

The following better shape up, or I am not following any more. Haha!
