Utter, absolute garbage
A year ago, the USA network aired what was quite possibly two of its greatest shows. One of them was a series entitled "The War Next Door," a fast paced, sardonic action/comedy romp by the makers of Pete and Pete. It was fresh, it was inventive, and it was literally a laugh a minute. It was also cancelled.
And in another moment where everything I've said about the rubes that make up the tv watching American public was validated, this pure garbage was the show that replaced it, and it thrived in the markets.
Along with everything else that makes up the show, the premise is simple: A husband and wife both work for the FBI. And - GET THIS - their children are their sidekicks! HA HA HA! Watch the hilarity ensue as daughter wears a wire while shopping at the mall! The laffs never stop as the impish little munchkin of a son does FBI stuff - it's funny because he's an "adorable" little kid helping the FBI investigate crime and that doesn't happen in real life! That's every episode in a nutshell, right there.
In a world where "watered down to be corporate sponsorship friendly" beats out "actually entertaining" and the public seems to have a serious jones for insipid, unfunny sitcoms like Suddenly Susan or Friends, I'm not surprised this show gets ratings and critical acclaim. I'm just disgusted. Cover Me is a shallow, trite show whose sole selling point is its "cute" concept. You're either one of the few who dislike that or one of the many who embrace it - if you're the latter I pity you, and if you're the former I pity you even more for having to put up with crap like this that saturates television nowadays.
