FBI International (CBS) -- From EP Dick Wolf -- Premieres 9/21/21






Here's the 1st teaser. The 1st episode is part of a 3-hour crossover with FBI and Most Wanted.






Apparently FBI International is filmed on location in Budapest, Hungary according to the CBS press release.

What is the point of this show since they can't carry guns.

So much crossover in the FBI shows' premieres last night. It's hard to say based on the first episode whether this will be any good, but I'll give it a shot. I like the other two FBI shows, so I'll probably try to keep up with this one, too.

I have only seen one of the episodes of the FBI show with the guy from Nip Tuck, what is that crazy accent he’s attempting?

I enjoyed it. Too much build up about how the lead is some badass but I already think it's better than Most Wanted. The original is still by far the best.

I thought it was a decent start and it was good that they kept OA from the original show in it to help finish the story. The new team seems fine, but it was only their introduction. It is cool though that they shoot this series on location in Europe. That does help with making it feel more international.

Regarding the comment earlier about FBI agents not being able to be armed overseas, this episode did show they were armed when they went to Croatia.

The showrunner says that certain territories in Europe allow FBI agents to be armed.

This felt like a low rent version of FBI. All the actors seemed like they would be in B movies. I guess that is what you get when you actually shoot on location in a foreign country. I am willing to give this a shot, but it was very pedestrian.

Yeah you’re not going to get very many A list TV actors who want to commit to living and working in Hungary for 6 months. I looked at the cast list and pretty much everyone is unknown or had minor parts in other projects.

The actor who plays the main guy in this show had a significant role in the Amazon series, The Man in the High Castle. The lead actress in The Man in the High Castle was Alexa Davalos, who just joined FBI: Most Wanted.

It reminds me of the old Duran Duran song, Hungary like Dick Wolf

I’m enjoying the show, interestingly the bad ass agent so far is the dog. He’s taken more perps down then all the others.

Not surprising, this was picked up for a full season.
