Eight episodes into its run and Covert Affairs is still a fun show. It might not be able to run for 7 years, but right now it is a very interesting show and for once, USA has launched something since Burn Notice that is must-see TV.
I really do not like the scenes with Arthur and Joan though, as they get to me every week. It is understandable that this show would need to create a boss character for Annie to clash with, but these scenes with the two of them talking about their life, just cut that out. It's not necessary.
Good episode here, but it can be better.
