John Tavner doesn't really fit in with his quirky colleagues at the industrial piping corporation where he works. They don't really know much about him, but what they don't realize is that his life has been anything but mundane. To prevent Iran from going nuclear, he has assumed a fake persona as an average businessman when in reality he is actually a highly skilled intelligence officer, who took the piping job because of the routine business trips to Luxembourg, and because the job is secluded and too dull to be noticed. Unfortunately for him a European cop is at his heels trying to discover who he is, his incessantly grim and nervous coworker Mr. Icabod has figured out that he isn't who he says, and Steven, a chubby employee with a recent brain injury, is starting to remember a horrible act which John may have inflicted.

Did You Know?


The school uniforms that Agathe's daughter and the other children at the police station wear during the "Take Your Child to Work Day" scenes, is indeed one of the traditional styles of school uniforms for younger girls in Luxembourg. Older students usually wear pleated skirts/pants with blazer combinations. See more »


In the opening scene, the pipeline company executives grill the main character about his knowledge of pipelines. The head honcho mispronounces the type of weld he is asking about - a fillet weld - which is correctly pronounced "fill-it". See more »


Dennis: [John's eyes go wide in horror when he sees Dennis putting the caption "Capture A Guy" on his cell-phone's schedule] Hey, don't put Capture A Guy!
Dennis: Well I've gotta put something!

Just binged it!!!!!
24 February 2017 | by Tommy NSee all my reviews

Another Amazon Prime Hit!!!!! Dark, fun ,mysterious, quirky fun!

There is not a single character in this that doesn't have some edge of suspicion!

I can't hardly wait for season 2. Don't make us wait as long as we did after the pilot!
