"Covert Affairs", spoofy series about life in the CIA on USA, brings back a geeky Christopher Gorham (from Jake 2.0)
They set up a caper with a Russian spy (familiar) in a hotel room, have a shootout, and later visit a morgue, to get caught by the cops.
The show has a kind of tongue-in-cheek and snazzy look and soundtrack, almost comical. This is not the conscience-changing concept of something like USA’s former hit “The 4400”.
The episode was directed by Tim Matheson.
The USA site for the show is here.
Here is a video from Leon Panetta on language training for CIA employees
Picture: see the train?
