If you're not watching ABC's Quantico, you're missing out on what is arguably the best new show of fall. Yeah, we said it. What are you going to do about it? Hopefully tune in, that's what!

The series jam packs everything we love about TV drama into one nail-biting hour. It's got the mystery of How to Get Away with Murder, the mind-f!$*ery of Homeland, and the sexiness of Scandal. Oh, and everyone just happens to be really, really hot. 

Still not convinced? Check out five more reasons below and you'll be sure to change your mind. 

1. Everybody is a suspect.

The show volleys between past and present, with the present being the aftermath of a domestic terrorist attack at NYC's Grand Central Station. FBI Agent Alex Parrish (Priyanka Chopra) is being falsely accused of committing the act, so it becomes her mission to prove her innocence. It's obviously much easier said than done because...

2. Nobody is to be trusted.

We repeat: nobody. There are more double agents than times we see Anabelle Acosta's resting bitch face. And that's a lot. We're not quite sure who is responsible for committing the "worst attack since September 11," but the series' producers would like us to believe that it can be any one of the FBI recruits in Alex's class. Our money is actually on someone entirely different (it has to do with Alex's father), but we're not going to spoil it for you! 

3. The man candy. 

Last week's episode started in a swimming pool and this guy is often shirtless:

His name is Jake McLaughlin and he will be your new celebrity crush. Get into him. You're welcome. 

4. Priyanka Chopra's hair.

Does this girl wash her hair in angel tears? There isn't a scene that goes by without us having major mane envy. But seriously, whose hair looks like this after surviving a building demolition? 

Just a casual messy bun.

And whose hair looks like this after flying cross-country, only to have car sex with a stranger?

"I&squot;m smiling becuase my hair still looks perfect."

Nobody. That is, unless you're Priyanka Chopra: Pantene Pro-V's future spokesperson, for sure. 

5. Because, yay, diversity.

Gay, black, Indian, Palestinian, Southern, twins, etc. The characters come from all walks of life, which means you'll most likely relate to someone and learn from another. Kudos, ABC!
