Bland and annoying,
This review is from: Covert Affairs: Season One [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Piper Perabo plays Annie a young, apparently talented (although I fail to see just why she is so special), spy who is just starting out for the CIA - her first job is to go under cover as a prostitute which sort of just sets the stage for the rest of this predictable, bland and very disappointing show.
It's not that it is badly acted (although there is a definite lack of chemistry between Annie and her dream lover - the affair with whom they very annoyingly keep flashing back to in almost every episode!) or that the concept couldn't work - it's just that we have seen it so many times before -just more skilfully executed.
I'd say skip this one and watch Burn Notice or one of the other spy shows that have already proven their worth.
