    This is even more cute and cloying version of "Covert Affairs" with a pair of blandly gorgeous fashion models breezing through the exciting and totally safe world of romance novel grade sexspionage, Moonlighting-style, but with less-than-zero charisma and fun.

    Disappointing. The weekly stories are decent enough, but nothing connects me to the characters. It's semi-serialized, but not enough to keep me invested. Plus, where's the signature JJ cliff hanger. Seems like network is too involved in the creative - big mistake.

  1. He's dashing, she's beautiful, and the show is fairly entertaining. But Undercovers adds nothing to the spy show genre.
  2. The banter between the Blooms is so full of cloying sugar substitutes and so devoid of any real tension that there is no voyeuristic thrill to be had even from their--I'm just going to say it, because the show does--"sexpionage."

    The sets and costumes are lovely to look at. The two stars--British import Gugu Mbatha-Raw and German import Boris Kodjoe--are about as attractive as people get....Now if only their show didn't feel so flat.
