Quantico is so bad.

The Mrs. has been binging on it the last few weeks and it's driving me nuts how horrible the show is. It's basically a sexy times soap opera that tries to pretend it's a serious show about international espionage.

Sure, the leads are gorgeous -- dear lord is Priyanka Chopra ever hot as hell, and Johanna Braddy isn't my usual type but she's damn good looking too (and the male leads all look good for the ladies, too) -- but wow, it's so bad.

I can't speak for the plots, since I'm not actually watching it, but whenever I catch some of the writing the dialogue is awful, and the show seems to go out of its way to gets its characters in their underwear or swimsuits or yoga gear or whatever for no damn reason at all.

Hey, I love gratuitous T&A as much as the next guy, but in the midst of a "serious" drama about terrorism and all that, it stick out like a sore thumb.

Bad. Show is bad.

So it's Bad Boys or The Fast and the Furious with terrorists?

Harlots is our current guilty pleasure and it actually isn't quite as bad as this Quantico (IMHO), but it definitely isn't high-brow. Granted the characters are all in the gutter and it is a time before proper education, so there you go.

Liv Tyler has joined the cast this year and both the wife and I were amazed at how she has aged since we last saw her as an elf princess.

I started watching with the wife because we were between seasons on everything and she asked what I wanted to watch and I told her something with more sex.

It definitely fulfills that aspect.

But it has been surprisingly entertaining and has plenty of T&A without the need of getting yoga into the story lines.

Do you mean in a bad way, or what?

A neutral way. I mean I had to Google her age.

She aged in a marked way.

I honestly can't remember the last movie Tyler was in. The Incredible Hulk and The Strangers were both a decade ago.
