callJuly 14, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Much anticipated CIA spy drama “Covert Affairs” aired its season 1 episode 1 on Tuesday on USA Network. The series that features Piper Perabo brought in front of the audience yet another somewhat cliched spy-drama that many viewers complained seemed unimpressive. Although Piper Perabo is a well known actress, she failed to impress the audience with her act as a young spy woman. The series seemed to be following the same personal drama theme that is pitted against the backdrop of CIA.

“Covert Affairs” Season 1 Episode 1 showed Piper Perabo as Annie Walker who had recently graduated from College. Betrayed by her lovers the lady decides to join CIA. In midst of her training as a CIA agent, Annie Perabo is whisked to the CIA headquarters and handed her first mission as a CIA agent. Her supervisor tells her that she has been given the task partly because her looks that can “pass for a call girl”. As her first task, she would need to strike a deal with a libidinous Russian assassin. However, many critics found Piper Perabo’s act as a call girl unimpressive.

What seems to be the main point of troubles in the show’s first episode are the story telling and the dialogues which lacks the spark that was expected by many. Although Piper Perabo tries to create an impact with her act as a spy agent, critics commented that the whole crew of “Covert Affairs” needs to make certain changes to make the show one of the hits this summer. Critics are anticipating that in the coming episodes it will be able to create a mark.
