Covert Affairs Episodes


Covert Affairs is a welcome new series after a slew of recent debuts that were more or less duds. It’s not an amazing series, but it’s straight out of the USA brand factory: sleek, fun, light and with a little bit of ‘tude. The comparisons to Alias are apt, but that point has been beaten to death so much that I don’t even care to discuss it.
