    What it does have is a sleek but shallow cast that cannot lend any weight to the lighter-than-air writing.

    Like so many other new shows this summer, the uninspired Covert Affairs is assembled from spare parts and elements that have been used better elsewhere.

    Annie calls for some sort of inner steel, but Perabo looks less like an untested agent than an overwhelmed intern.

    Although unrealistic to the typical day at the CIA, the characters are easy to relate with and very entertaining. Christopher Gorham'sAlthough unrealistic to the typical day at the CIA, the characters are easy to relate with and very entertaining. Christopher Gorham's depiction of a blind CIA agent makes you love him even more and the witty comments swapped between characters leave a smile on your face. All in all, a great show, that is perfect for a summer drama series. Hopefully it sticks around for a long time. Full Review »

The story line is socovert affairs painfully asks women to look more masculine than they are, making the actors look awkward in their roles. The story line is so cliche of a chick flick but to be honest, if you're like me and you're a fan of shows like criminal minds and city homicide seeing a show like covert affairs really pisses you off because the story line is so **** I WANT BLOOD AND GUTS PEOPLE!!!!!
