Kicking things off with a simple blind date scenario, we easily get the idea that were in store for a new sort of work/home dichotomy with a lot of possibilities. Especially since we stress Annies emotional distance as a key positive to her CIA eligibility, and mix it with the quite different reaction of a protective, older sister. Thrown into this mix is another relationship spin the show will throw at us, and it is one that would seem on the road to an equal share of the spotlight, despite the shows effort to put up Perabo and Gorham as the key faces.
When Annie goes there for dinner, Danielle is trying to fix her up because, of course, no woman should be single for very long. Or at all. Covert Affairs straddles the line between humorous and serious. Which is it? The superb Alias with Jennifer Garner managed to be a campy and action-packed with somewhat believable story-lines. Covert Affairs is an Alias rip-off and at this is Alias-lite. Annie is a capable, talented agent with a gift for languages plucked from the trainees for a special mission. All she has to do is go in with a pre-programmed phone to sync data with an assassin who wants to trade information for safety in the United States. That doesnt go well and leads to a series of mini-adventures as the new spy tries to figure out what exactly is going on.
