This is JJ Abrams' 2nd big hit after Felicity and launches him on his way to being one of the biggest name in Hollywood.
It's a simple concept of a hot supermodel 007 Jenny Bond in a secret worldwide spy organization. It's completely unreal fantasy. There is nothing but popcorn fun here.

Eventually, the show collapses under the weight of it's story.
