a fun guilty pleasure...
11 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Covert Affairs" rates a solid 7-8 stars for me based on one thing: It's an entertaining show, plain and simple.

Is it packed full of intrigue, suspense, and plot twists that will bend your brain? No; in fact, I'm pretty sure my fellow heist/thriller film fans will see every "shocking new development" coming a mile away. Is the acting superb? Not particularly, but it's far from awful. Are you going to believe in the characters' stories and expertise? Unlikely. However, that does not make the show any less fun to watch, and even after I really disliked much of the pilot, I've tuned in every week.

Two random fun facts: The main character's name, Annie Walker, is cleverly derived from a "24" character/actor name, and each episode title is a Led Zeppelin song title.

Two cautionary caveats: The relationship between the CIA director and his CIA-employee wife is horrendous, overworked, and an absolute distraction, and the "love story" following Annie Walker and her long-lost spy lover is also teetering on the edge between inanity and lunacy. I really hope the show tones down both story lines A LOT, or this show is destined for cancellation.

All that said, I recommend this show and think that if you can suspend disbelief as you would for a made-for-TV movie, you're likely to really enjoy the ride...
