  • Annie get your gun

    5.0
    I know some fans like to see Annie as a modern day Mata Hari but I find endless series of Annie gets her end away predictable and tedious.



    Now Little Noddy has had his turn, Big Ears returns next week and there have been hot and meaningful glances with McQuaid who has even gifted her with a gun as a crude romantic gesture!



    Who will be next? Can't wait.moreless
  • Really?

    7.0
    In S05E02 - False Skorpion, Annie follows a terrorist to a Mosque (?) in Maracaibo, Venezuela (?).



    OK, it's a Latin American-looking place, people speak Spanish etc etc.



    But then the camera zooms out to a broad aerial view of downtown Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, which is one of the country's best-known landmarks, where the area with Lacerda Elevator and the Mercado Modelo are instantly recognizable to 200 million Brazilians and quite a few foreigners. That's not showing good homework.



    I had a good laugh at it, but I didn't think the director's intention was for it to be funny. Not even the same language is spoken in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil and Maracaibo, Venezuela. In times where accurate information is found in thousands of websites, that was definitely poor homework.



    But I'll follow the show into its fifth year - it's a great series

  • Whadda?!

    4.0
    I'm into episode 4 now and bored, especially for the attempts at humor. It seems to me this is conceived as some kind of CIA soap opera, which perhaps is okay, if you're into such things. Funny though how even The Middle has more of an edge to it and the lead from Scarecrow and Mrs. King (19831987), a house wife, is more competent in all matters "spying" than the characters on this show. The latter managed to be lightweight and humorous and should and still make you feel excited. Here? Not so much.

    My personal opinion, this show has been successful for a while now, I guess it's just a matter of taste.moreless
  • When is this show returning to UK tv?

    7.0
    I have been watching this show when it first came over to the UK. But it has been gone for a bit. When is it coming back?
  • JUST NOT FEELING IT...

    8.0
    I am a FAN of the show and the characters; however, I JUST CANNOT believe Annie as this great spy that has all of the sudden gone "dark". The entire second half of the season, I trudged though in loyalty.



    Not that I'm a fan of dragging things along, but perhaps they needed to drag this out a bit more to show Annie transforming into this undercover-dead-dark-operative. It just feels like she went from her ridiculous Louboutin's to Doc Martis's and driving her bright red YOU CAN'T REALY FOLLOW ANYBODY car to riding Motorcycles way too soon.



    Still a fan though,moreless

    Plus: Big Brother returns up, a Mighty Ducks actor joins Daredevil, and a fan favorite is returning to Covert Affairs.

  • ANNIE WALKER, ALL GROWED UP

    Covert Affairs Season 5 Premiere Review: Back in the D.C. Groove

    Four months after the events of the Season 4 finale, Annie's back in town, back to being blonde, and ready to get back to chasing bad guys in hilariously impractical footwear.
