I picked up Covert Affairs on a whim. I'm a long time La Femme Nikita, Nikita, Alias, Buffy fan, so the female spy with ninja skills and a heart of gold story line is one that I have enjoyed, but one that now has a pretty high standard to live up to. Piper Perabo is simply a pleasure to watch in this role, from start to finish. She pretty much had me twisted around her little pinky a few episodes in when I realized that she had the power to go from funny to heartbreaking in a few moments. I've really enjoyed Christopher Gorham since "Jake 2.0", and seeing him here is not unlike seeing him in that role again--a computer wise spy guy. The trick here is that he is blind, but every bit as deadly and capable as his sighted companions. The evolving relationship between Perabo and Gorham on screen kept me coming back in season 1, and in season 2 it just gets better. Annie and Auggie make perfect friends and foils, their banter and friendship are the secret to what makes this show great. The moment in episode 7 when we learn more about Auggie's blindness...well, I'll leave you hopefully wondering. Jump on the Covert Affairs train. It's a great ride and a lot of fun.

I resisted watching this show because I was a huge ALIAS fan, which is about the dumbest reason on the planet. I finally broke down when a friend of mine was telling me about how wonderful it was, and I bought the first season on Amazon. I then went on a marathon, watching it all twice, and then gathering up all the episodes of season two. The parallels with ALIAS end at it being about a female agent in the CIA. Covert Affairs doesn't suffer from the heady mythology that ALIAS did. Anyone can pop into this show at any point and enjoy the heck out of it. Annie Walker, Joan and Arthur Campbell are terrific characters. I never expected to like Jai Wilcox, but I do. My favorite character is Auggie Anderson who touched a spot in my heart. This show is brilliant, and if you like spies you should watch it.

Ever want to travel the world, but short on cash? Well then, just check out S2 of Covert Affairs. From the producers of The Bourne movies, brings you an epic tale of global espionage. Also it helps fill the void that Alias left when it was taken off the air. (Not that CA is ANYTHING like Alias, other than the fact that they're both spy shows). I highly recommend this show to anyone looking for a new fun show to watch!

Format: DVD
Boos and hisses on Amazon for not having the show's catchy title track (Power's "Can You Save Me") available as an MP3 download. And that may (or may not) be the only negative thing I say here, because COVERT AFFAIRS, one of USA Network's entries in the sub-genre of spy thriller lite, is must-see television in my household. Piper Perabo continues to be compelling as the CIA's latest recruit Annie Walker. As we learned in Season One's first episode, her director has no qualms in immediately plunging her in deep waters, one field assignment chased by another. I am madly in crush with Piper Perabo, and I figure her unusual and catchy name has something to do with it. But there's also that slightly offbeat vibe she's got going on. And I've said this elsewhere, but, man, her face is so expressive and she exudes smarts.

I dunno if this is fact or fiction, but it's established early in the show that the CIA's hiring freeze unfroze after 9/11, which has resulted in 50% of the agency now flaunting a mere 5 years of experience or less. Factor in that Annie placed tops in her spy training class, and maybe the director's decision to deploy Annie so soon is easier to comprehend. In Season 2 Chris Gorham demonstrates that he still flexes those ridiculous abs. Peter Gallagher still parades around with those two pet caterpillars he insists are eyebrows. Season 2 still has me singing along to the catchy theme song. And Season 2 finds Annie Walker less broken-hearted and more the seasoned spy, although she hasn't all the way shed her wide-eyed innocence; she's yet to develop that guarded, cynical shell. But her instincts have been on point from jump. She keeps getting the job done (well, mostly), even if she sometimes steps outside of proper agency protocol. Some may frown at her insubordination.

*Gag Reel (short and funny!! Piper has a mouth on her, but it's all censored out.)
*Piper Perabo Comic-Con Intro (Kinda confusing, I thought that this would be an interview or something but it's a funny gag with Annie going off task at Comic Con following "intel". Eh, short and a little pointless.)
*Covert Affairs on Location: Istanbul, Venice, Berlin, and Stockholm (Probably the best bonus feature of this box set, it follows Chris Gorham who plays Auggie Anderson as he goes on location and shoots little video diaries and behind the scene snippets of his costars. Interesting and personal, I felt a part of the Covert Affairs family by watching it. Roughly 16 minutes with all of them.
