    In season 2 this fluffy spy caper about gorgeous CIA operative Annie Walker is starting to deliver on the seductive fun promised by Piper Perabo's sly, flirtatious smile in the opening credits. [25 Jul 2011, p.40]

    Don't try too hard to make sense of it: Covert Affairs is simply--and simple--fun.

    [The premiere is] another well-told story that gives us a bit more insight into the pair while the season's two interconnected running story lines spool out behind them.

    Excellent show; one of my favorite ones, in addition to White Collar, Burn Notice & Suits. The set up is the exploits of a young female CIAExcellent show; one of my favorite ones, in addition to White Collar, Burn Notice & Suits. The set up is the exploits of a young female CIA recruit, who does her job very well; going on different missions all over the world. What makes the show work are the character relationships; especially with the main character and Augie - her blind handler. The characters are very likable, and there is an ongoing plot line that continues in each episode; sprinkled with humor. Don't miss out on this season & if you haven't seen the other season, make sure you rent it...you won't be disappointed. :) Full Review »

    Simple fluffy escapism. Likeable characters and basic plot lines. There's nothing even close to ground breaking, just fun to watch. PiperSimple fluffy escapism. Likeable characters and basic plot lines. There's nothing even close to ground breaking, just fun to watch. Piper Perabo plays the lead as a young, intelligent, naive, and pretty new CIA agent well. Good to see Christopher Gorm too. Full Review »
