Covert Affairs

Series Summary
CIA trainee Annie Walker is suddenly plucked from the inner sanctum of the agency and promoted to field operative, and while it seems she went from obscurity to the fire because of her exceptional linguistic skills, something or someone from her past may be the reason her bosses shifted her career path. Now that Annie finds herself on assignments with no rules or training to guide her, all she can rely on is her intuition ... and the guidance of CIA military intelligence agent Auggie Anderson, a one-time special operative until he was blinded during a mission. Auggie helps Annie navigate the intricate CIA bureaucracy, and he quickly becomes the one person she can trust.

  • Everything about Covert Affairs feels bland and generic: Annie herself (Perabo is efficient but charisma-free), her missions (this week's assignment is completely predictable), her relationship with her sister (the wonderful Anne Dudek, wasted in a marginal role), and especially her relationship with her boyfriend, another CIA operative. show more

  • There's no there there. Annie's missions each week are forgettable, and most seem to revolve around Annie seeming to get too personally invested, only for her instincts to be proven right over her more jaded colleagues. show more

  • Don't try too hard to make sense of it: Covert Affairs is simply--and simple--fun. show more
