In so many words, really uplifting show. This series will become one of your favorites if you love spy stories and comedy entwined. Brilliant and believable acting, great writing. Some stories may seem over the top but they manage to keep us tuned.
The pilot rumbles forward on crisp action and light-hearted humor, while hinting at higher stakes that offer room for narrative growth. While easily dismissed as another "Alias" (like Jennifer Garner, Perabo can do wonderful things to a simple skirt and heels), the show also makes clever use of Walker's newbie status.
Oh, what will Annie do next? She'll most likely break some sort of CIA protocol while ignoring an order and still manage to save the day with the help of her blind friend. Oh, yeah, and don't forget about Ben, the rogue agent, who is nothing like Annie. He'll pop up with another dilemma that forces Annie to choose her trusted CIA or the man who she has spent three weeks with. Hmmm. What will she do? I think we already know.
This show to me is a poor copy of Alias, more like "Alias-Lite", but I find the acting a bit weak and Annie just doesn't do it for me as a covert agent. I think I was spoiled by Jennifer Garner and after watching Nikita, this show just is weak. It's the only way I can describe it.
This show is almost **** Concentrated on good looking perabo. No real craft behind the stories. Why is Annies friend blind? Annie keeps on breaking CIA protocols and orders episode after episode and has to be saved in each episode. I mean I say die already. Keeps on making bad decisions and still coming out front like she knew it all along.
Annie Walker is probably the most inept, incompetent CIA officer ever to work for the agency and yet despite her many failures and screw ups she's constantly lauded for her so called "Achievements". The only reason my score isn't a 1 is because of their willingness to shoot scenes on location, the changes in scenery do a lot to make the series bearable through Annie's bumbling joke of an attempt at espionage.
