For years, Patty (Debby Ryan) has been bullied, ignored, and underestimated by those around her because of her weight. But now that she finds herself suddenly thin, Patty is out for payback against anyone who has ever made her feel bad about herself.
Covert Affairs (USA Network, Tuesdays, 9/8C) returns this evening with a bit of a time jump following Annie Walker’s intriguing conversation with Henry Wilcox – who hasn’t taken his son’s death very well, and ‘the conversation’ with her and Auggie. Then it slides back to the morning after ‘the conversation’ and things go pear shaped.
Covert Affairs [USA Network, Tuesdays, 10/9C] follows the adventures of rookie CIA operative Annie Walker [Piper Perabo] as she tries to balance her personal and professional lives. At work, blind tech whiz Auggie Anderson [Christopher Gorham] has her back.
I took part in a teleconference Q&A with Perabo and Gorham on Friday in support of the show’s second season. As these things go, it was pretty enjoyable – both because I’m a fan of the show and because Perabo and Gorham are cheerful, intelligent, articulate and fun to chat with.
It’s taken a while, but with Covert Affairs [USA, Tuesdays, 10/9C], Christopher Gorham seems to have finally gotten himself on hit series. This week’s episode, Communication Breakdown, finds Gorham’s character, blind tech wizard Auggie Anderson getting the chance to go back into the field, though it’s not under the most auspicious circumstances.
In a recent Q&A conference call, Sendhil Ramamurthy talked about becoming Jai Wilcox on the USA Network’s new hit series, Covert Affairs [Tuesdays, 19/9C], how he came to get the role and, among other things, some of the things that surprised him – both in terms of the show, and in terms of things he learned about the CIA.
As you might expect from executive producer Doug Liman, USA’s new series, Covert Affairs [Tuesdays, 10/9C], is a high-tempo ride that somehow manages to maintain a solid balance between character and action. Premiering after White Collar’s second season opener, Affairs introduces rookie CIA agent Annie Walker [Piper Perabo] – a gung ho trainee who is smart, uniquely attractive, speaks six languages and knows a fair amount of Krav Maga.
USA’s new spy series, Covert Affairs [Tuesdays, 10/9C] channels the world of espionage through what some have called “USA’s blue sky filter” – resulting in a fast-paced dramedy with roots in the details of the real CIA and the flights of action film imagination that spawned the James Bond and Jason Bourne films.
Covert Affairs is particularly notable for casting Piper Perabo, who has worked almost exclusively in film [give or take a guest star role on House] for a little better than a decade. Perabo kindly took some time to speak with a number of bloggers/journalists between adhering to her hectic shooting schedule and a meeting with executive producer, Doug Liman.
