    Piper Perabo is glamorous--but she's not afraid to break a sweat. Perabo, as Annie Walker, is the perfectly cast centerpiece of the USA Network's smashing series Covert Affairs, sort of like Alias meets Sex and the City with a dash of The Closer, but skewing younger. Perabo's Annie is a surprisingly three-dimensional TV CIA agent trainee--vulnerable, smart but green, ambitious but sensible, romantic, confident, and just a little klutzy. Annie's career--and life--take a giant turn when the agency moves her from her training to a super-secret mission--one that involves some person or people from her past. So plucky Annie is in danger, yet her wits seem to serve her well. And the beauty of Covert Affairs is that, as with The Closer, the supporting cast and its chemistry are as divine as its heroine. Christopher Gorham plays the blind agent Auggie, whom Annie assists in a series of ever more complex assignments. Sendhil Ramamurthy (Heroes), Anne Dudek (House), and the always-watchable Peter Gallagher round out the ensemble. Annie, like most of the USA Network's series stars, is likable, complex enough to be engaging, but light enough to make for a breezy viewing experience. Which is great praise for Covert Affairs--it's immersive and compulsively watchable. The boxed set contains loads of great extras, including a gag reel, a "blind tour" feature that shows the set from the perspective of the blind Auggie, a great feature about creating the CIA offices, and illuminating commentaries from the cast and crew. Annie, get your gun, indeed. --A.T. Hurley

    Product Description

    Meet Annie Walker (Piper Perabo, Coyote Ugly): smart, stunning and the CIA’s newest field operative in one of their most secretive branches. Suddenly summoned by headquarters for active duty one month before training is over, she’s quickly thrown into a shadowy world full of cons, killers and international crime rings. What she doesn’t know is there’s something—or someone—from her past that her bosses want badly enough to put her in harm’s way. She just has to survive long enough to find out why. From the producer of the Bourne films comes the action-packed first season of the smash-hit espionage series, with co-stars Christopher Gorham (Ugly Betty) and Sendhil Ramamurthy (Heroes), and guest stars Peter Gallagher (The O.C.), Eriq La Salle (ER), Lauren Holly (NCIS), Liane Balaban (Last Chance Harvey) and Anna Chlumsky (My Girl). Critics are praising it as “the best new drama series of the season” (Francine Brokaw, suite101.com).

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD box set, if you get the right price July 1, 2011
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I noticed that none of these reviews or the description of the product lists the special features. So I will.

    Disc 1
    1. Pilot
    2. Walter's Walk
    3. South Bound Suarez
    4. No Quarter
    -Deleted Scenes on select episodes
    -Pilot cast and crew commentary

    Disc 2
    5. In the Light
    6. Houses of the Holy
    7. Communication Breakdown
    8. What is and What Should Never Be
    -Deleted scenes on select episodes

    Disc 3

    10. I Can't Quit You, Babe
    11. When the Levee Breaks
    -Deleted scenes on select episodes
    -Gag Reel (really funny, but very short. Piper has a mouth on her! (but it is censored out, unlike White Collar gag reels)
    -When the Levee Breaks cast and crew commentary
    *Behind the Scenes Featurettes:
    -Welcome to the Farm
    -Blind Insight (really interesting, a short one-on-one interview with Chris Gorham who plays Auggie Anderson)
    -Set Tour (with Sendhil Ramamurthy and one of the co-creators. Sendhil is very witty and funny, and the sets are very impressive.)
    -Celebrate the ADA (PSA)

    Although I do agree that the price for just 11 episodes is still outrageous, I got mine discounted from an independent seller and it was totally worth it. The commentary actually adds to the episode, not just rambling about whatever they felt like (which often happens with Supernatural commentaries) and Chris Gorham even took some questions from his facebook page to answer during the duller parts of each episode.

    Great series, plus lots of good cover art on the DVDs. Beautiful set!

    4.0 out of 5 stars She spies! December 8, 2010
    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.

    4.0 out of 5 stars It's Tough to be a Spy September 16, 2010
    Format:DVD
    Of all USA's shows I currently watch (Burn Notice, Royal Pains, Covert Affairs), Covert Affairs is probably my favorite. While Burn Notice is still fun, it just seems to be a rehash every season of the same story with different people, much like Heroes ended up doing. Covert Affairs stars Piper Perabo as a shoe-in CIA Agent - or so she thinks. Her entry into Langley as a field agent is suspect from the beginning of the season as her one-time love interest, Ben Mercer, keeps popping up (in more ways than one) to haunt her. Is she there because of her talent? That's up for you to decide. Annie's sidekick, August "Auggie" Anderson, is a blind, tech savvy, ex-soldier who makes a great partner for Annie and can seemingly get more women than Brad Pitt. Annie's superiors, constantly feuding husband and wife duo Joan and Arthur Campbell, make for an interesting side story in each episode with Joan being Annie's direct boss and head of the DPD and Arthur being Joan's boss and Director of Clandestine Services (DCS). Another recognizable face is that of Sendhil Ramamurthy, a.k.a. Mohinder Suresh from Heroes.

    I don't want to say Covert Affairs is unique however it does give us, what I would consider, a good look into the methods of the CIA. Annie is constantly being chosen for dangerous field ops and always gets into tight situations where she, very MacGuyver like, always manages to find a way out. One thing that bothers me about this show and it is an issue with all three above mentioned USA shows is that you can predict that: a). with Royal Pains, Hank always seems to be around when someone's health is hitting the fan b). in Burn Notice, Michael is supposed to be incognito yet word gets around and people always seem to know what he does, where he lives, and how to reach him and c).
