Take Two for Covert Affairs/Download The Theme Song Here!

Covert Affairs 
Watched the second episode of Covert Affairs last night.

It's so easy to really love this show. Annie Walker (Piper Perabo), a CIA junior, is never assigned to cover dangerous tasks, which makes this series light and easy to follow. Then again, there's always danger when you are a CIA agent, so there's always that expected mix of action and excitement here, even if Annie's only supposed to "babysit" (alright...protect!) a mother and her son.

I am liking the buddy relationship between Auggie (Christopher Gorham) and Annie. Auggie, the tech guy inside the CIA operative, is kind of a dork.  Yet he's also cute, charming and very helpful towards Annie. He may be the one person Annie can truly trust (because in the CIA, you can't even trust your own co-worker, right?). I don't hope they would cross that line and become romantically involved, however. I think their dynamics work the way it is.

I was having a bit of a problem believing Christopher Gorham is blind, watching him the first time  (his character, Auggie, became blind while in the line of duty). He pulled it off better in the second episode.

Mohinder from Heroes (Sendhil Ramamurthy) joins the show now. His character works for the 7th floor, but was asked to be in Annie's department....to watch over Annie. Not so thrilled about this though...I have my....Mohinder issues haha.

The second episode also featured the show's opening credits for the first time. And you know what it reminded me of? The opening credits to Chuck! Watch this:



It's goofy and it's a jab at a typical James Bond theme, don't you think?

The song for the opening credits is by this band named Apple Trees & Tangerines, entitled "Can You Save Me". You can download the complete song here. And you can check out the band's music and profile here.

  1. I love the show too. I thought I'd be annoyed with Annie pero she's pretty tolerable. Oh, and I dunno if it's true pero yung Annie Walker pala is an homage to Renee Walker (Annie Wersching) from 24.
