    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 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. :) Expand

    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]

    Everything about Covert Affairs feels bland and generic: Annie herself (Perabo is efficient but charisma-free), her missions (this week's assignment is completely predictable), her relationship with her sister (the wonderful Anne Dudek, wasted in a marginal role), and especially her relationship with her boyfriend, another CIA operative.

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