Season Premiere — Covert Affairs, “Begin the Begin”
Although they are known for their lightweight, summery nature, I like basically all of USA’s series. I guess I’d have to like them a lot to write my entire MA thesis about them. But even though I’ll watch almost anything USA Network puts on the air, there is certainly a clear distinction between what I…
Season finale — Covert Affairs, “I Can’t Quit You, Baby” and “When the Levee Breaks”
I’ve intentionally stayed away from writing up my thoughts on Covert Affairs in recent weeks after the Auggie episode, but even if I did write each week, it’d feel like I was banging the same, boring drum every time. You know, kind of how the series has done to us over the summer.
