Future FBI crime solving - Class of '09 (2023) Mini Series

FBI agents who graduated from Quantico in 2009 are reunited following the death of a mutual friend.

Hey there, fellow movie enthusiasts! Today, I want to share my thoughts on the new drama mini-series, Class of '09. Set in the world of FBI agents, this show reunites a group of graduates from Quantico in 2009 following the untimely death of a mutual friend. With a massive ensemble cast and a plot that blends elements from popular crime dramas, this series had me intrigued right from the start.

The stellar cast of Class of '09 is undoubtedly one of its biggest strengths. From A-listers to up-and-coming talent, the show boasts an impressive lineup. Too many to list here.

When it comes to the directors, Joe Robert Cole, Steven Canals, Sunu Gonera, and Amanda Marsalis, they bring their own unique vision to the series. Their collective efforts result in a visually appealing and well-executed show, although there were moments when the flashing between timelines felt jarring and disrupted the flow of the storytelling just a little.

Class of '09 reminds me of a fusion between "Law and Order," "FBI," and "The Minority Report," as it combines elements of crime-solving, procedural drama, and a subtle Sci-Fi theme. However, one aspect that didn't quite hit the mark for me was the lack of impressive special effects. Given the show's futuristic undertones, I expected a bit more of a visual spectacle.

One gripe I had with Class of '09 was the casting of young actors in the roles of seasoned characters. While they gave commendable performances, it was occasionally hard to suspend disbelief and fully invest in their older personas. Perhaps I'm just showing my age here, but it did prove slightly distracting at times.

Regrettably, the show's promotion seemed to be lacking. I only stumbled upon it by chance, and it's a shame because Class of '09 definitely has potential. Despite its shortcomings, the series carries itself well, especially if you're a fan of detective and cop-like shows.

Class of '09 is a promising drama with a few flaws that prevent it from reaching its full potential. The intriguing plot, impressive cast, and subtle Sci-Fi elements make it worth checking out, even if it falls short in certain areas. So, give it a watch and let me know what you think!
