  • what's with this show and Estonia ?

    1.0
    I love this series, but being an Estonian myself, I must say they should at least try to google most basic details about the countries they are using in the storylines. I mean, at least don't mix Estonian first name with a Russian surname or vice versa 'cos no Russian would name their child with an Estonian name. That just doesn't happen. Nadia (Russian) Levandi (Estonian) and Alo (Estonian) Mozorov (Russian). And supposedly, Nadia is a russian-speaking Estonian...Well, you would never hear someone of her heritage swear in Estonian. They would definitely use Russian swear words. But, according to the script, she is swearing in Estonian, but the actress is doing a very shitty job - it's impossible to understand a word what she's saying. And I'm not even going to start with Nadia's line "Estonians have a dark heart..."



    So, I like this show most of the time, but this episode just made me laugh out loud, and not in a good way. Writers really have to do more research to make the show more credible. Alias was a lot better...moreless
  • Interesting start to season 2!

    I was thrilled to see Covert Affairs back for another season, as this was a show that I thoroughly enjoyed the first season of. This episode started off in interesting fashion, and it certainly was a gripping start to the episode.



    Fortunately, the rest of the episode was just as good. While I wasn't particularly enthralled by everything going on with Ben, I really enjoyed the cas e of the Estonian tennis player, Nadia. They did a great job with tht case, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching it. As a little tennis fan, I also enjoyed some of the tennis scenes we witnessed at the match in the end of the episode.



    All up, great work guys! I was impressed with the start to Season Two, and I hope for the standard ot continue to increase as the season progresses! Great work!moreless

    A new season of Covert Affairs, a fun little summer show last year. This premiere was good, they started with a nice chase scene, a smart move and they ended with a chase sequence, another good move. The crew behind Covert Affairs knows that action is why people tune in every week so they were wise to heavily feature that tonight. The problem is that these characters just are not memorable and I can't say that I really relate to any of them or care about any of them. Does anyone really care what the deal with Ben Mercer is? They were going for it to be a huge reveal, a huge moment with him still being on the payroll during his late night chat, but I didn't care. Right now the show is just a generic action drama on USA. When it can make its characters more three dimensional it will improve.moreless
