Covert Affairs Season 1 is an enjoyable piece of fluff in the Alias-mould, but without that particular show's darker edge. Most of the appeal of the show, in my opinion, lies with Piper Perabo. She is very engaging and I actually found myself caring about what happened to her character. This is great credit to her, because to be honest, the show isn't particularly suspenseful and some of the other characters are a little irritating! Her holiday-romance lover is annoying and the relationship between the married heads of department is cringey to say the least! Definitely worth a look if you want 40 minutes of escapism after a hard day at work - but don't expect anything too deep!!

Format: DVD
Finally, a TV show about a female spy that ISN'T all about dressing her in sexy clothing. Instead, "Covert Affairs" is all about a young CIA agent's adventures, as she carries out taut, action-packed missions. It's an enjoyable, promising little series, and Piper Perabo makes an enjoyably earnest young agent.

Annie Walker (Perabo) is undergoing training to be a CIA agent, and trying to forget her last romance -- her boyfriend Ben (Eion Baile) vanished without a trace, and she hasn't been able to find him.

Then she's suddenly pulled out of the program, stationed in Washington, and sent out into the field to use her linguistic skills. So when she isn't trying to have a semi-normal social life and spending time with her sister's family, Annie is diving into some very hard missions under the guidance of blind agent Auggie (Christopher Gorham).

She has to deal with a boy-genius, a deadly Venezuelan agent, a disastrous Zurich mission, a Senatorial leak, a computer hacker who wreck's D.C.'s communications, an Iranian refugee, smugglers, an art auction.... and the return of her former lover. At the same time, her bosses have discovered that someone inside the CIA is leaking information to a muckraking journalist.

Disclaimer: I am not a CIA agent, and I don't know what it's like to be one. But I assume that "Covert Affairs" is a pretty good dramatic depiction of that agency -- there are some obvious flaws (husbands and wives cannot work together in government agencies), but it FEELS much more realistic than many other shows' depictions of the CIA.

Every episode has a nice tight mesh of action, drama, and a bit of humor, as Annie grapples with life-threatening scenarios, hails of bullets, villainous agents and the possible deaths of innocents.

Take a girl, still suffering from the mysterious disappearance of the love of her life, and drop her into the CIA at the deep end despite having too many morals to be a ruthless percentage player like those surrounding her. Do this before she's even completed her training. Give her a sister and nieces to ground her and complicate her life. Add a dash of office politics and intrigue. Add great performances (particularly by Piper Perabo, the lead), snappy dialogue and plots with twists and you have a recipe for a seriously fun series - Enjoy.

Format: DVD
This is really aimed at the lighter side of the CIA/Spy theme/plot, rather than the harder edged conspiracy series. Whilst it's not a comedy Covert Affairs is the kind of programme you put on when you don't want to get too bogged down in a beefy complicated plot. Though you will have to pay attention to some of the story lines.

Piper Perabo fits into the role of Annie Walker, the new field recruit for the CIA. But she has a decent supporting cast including a good performance by Christopher Gorham who play the role of "Auggie" the blind operative who mentors Annie and provides operational support. It's not easy to play a blind person convincingly and he does this very well.

Other cast members are also quite comfortable, Kari Matchett and Anne Dudek fit into the boss and sister roles for the most part successfully. Early episodes do tend to overplay the sister/sister relationship and strains a bit more than I expected (this does ease off later on in the series and in season 2)

I would tend to agree that the effects in some episodes, including the "green screen" work isn't top tier (but it does the job). Story wise I found it quite easy to follow and in most episodes a good watch. But this isn't the type of series everyone will warm to, though I find it easy watching. It won't really be your cup of tea if you like a gritty more realistic type production, and the stories can be a little unlikely and stretching reality a bit (though this is hardly rare for this genre) Piper does lift the series with her performance with some good acting and portraying the career minded woman keen to impress, but also a more vulnerable personal side too. Worth a look if you want a spy "lite" series to watch as and when you please.

A well constructed CIA drama, how accurate it represents the activities of the CIA, is impossible to know. But it is well written, directed, and performed, making it very believable and entertaining.

I must admit I have seen Seasons 1 - 2 - 3, and every Season is better than the last. She is a good little actress and the cast works well togrther.
