Annie Must Protect Danielle From a Rogue Agent on 'Covert Affairs' Finale (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 7th 2011 5:30AM
'Covert Affairs' season finaleAnnie and Danielle got to spend some quality sister time together on 'Covert Affairs' (Tue., 10PM ET on USA) in this season finale. It's just a shame it was while they were hiding from the rogue agent looking to kill them. These scenes brought a close to one chapter of Annie's professional life, and ushered in another as she coolly and confidently took down the agent in order to save her sister.

But as cool as she was in that moment, it still marked her first kill and that's not something you can simply brush to the side and move on. We were thrilled to see her and Danielle reach a reconciliation, and even more thrilled that Annie gets to come home!

Annie's Got a Gun, and Specialized Training With it, on 'Covert Affairs' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 23rd 2011 6:00AM
'Covert Affairs'Remember that Annie wasn't even supposed to be brought up to the big leagues quite as quickly as she was on 'Covert Affairs' (Tue., 10PM ET on USA). Nevertheless, she's proven herself savvy in the field, clever and maybe just a little lucky along the way. But it's the luck that concerns her.

After her more recent takedown led to her closest encounter yet with a whizzing bullet, Annie requested specialized training, and Joan quickly approved it. Now Annie will have some training and a greater confidence with a weapon when her luck's being tested, making her an even more impressive agent.

Annie Has to Fight to Save a Young Boy on 'Covert Affairs' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 6th 2011 6:38AM
'Covert Affairs' - 'Around the Sun'What wouldn't a parent do for their children? On shows like 'Covert Affairs' (Tue., 10PM ET on USA) they often go to jail for them. In this week's installment, though, dear old dad was genuinely doing some bad things -- giving NASA secrets to a rebel Colombian army -- but he was doing it to protect his son.

Annie took that protection much more literally, as she wound up battling it out with a woman in an industrial complex with the kid looking on. Of course, this being Annie, she pulled off the win for the home team. But consequences being what they are, despite this being TV land, the kid's dad has to go away for his crimes.

The Talking TV Podcast takes on Summer TV

by Maureen Ryan, posted Jun 9th 2011 3:00PM
In this week's Talking TV with Ryan and Ryan podcast, we take on a bunch of summer shows we haven't discussed yet.

But why the 'Game of Thrones' podcast logo? Well, that's here because I never got around to posting links to the the two epic 'GoT' podcasts we did with TV critics James Poniewozik and Myles McNutt last week.

Below you'll find links to those podcasts, plus running times for this week's discussion of 'White Collar,' 'Covert Affairs,' 'Franklin & Bash,' 'The Killing,' 'Camelot' and BBC America's re-airing of 'Battlestar Galactica.'

Annie and Ben Under Fire on Season Premiere of 'Covert Affairs' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 8th 2011 5:42AM
'Covert Affairs' - 'Begin the Begin'It was a lot more of the same as Season 2 of 'Covert Affairs' (Wed., 10PM ET on USA) kicked off. Annie got in over her head, but proved she still has very impressive instincts, and a healthy dose of luck to go with it.

For the premiere, we had to put Ben back in a position of absence-makes-the-heart-grow-fonder, but first how about some rekindled romance and danger to tie Annie's heart even closer to him.

Of course, we all know that she should be with Auggie. Even the actors and creators seem to know this, as the chemistry is so completely different with Ben than it is with Auggie.

Reviews: 'White Collar' and 'Covert Affairs' Come Back, But Only One Impresses

by Maureen Ryan, posted Jun 7th 2011 3:15PM
'White Collar' and 'Covert Affairs' both kick off new seasons Tuesday (at 9PM ET and 10PM ET respectively), and though they both abide by certain USA Network formulas, in execution they couldn't be more different.

'White Collar's' return is a sprightly, enjoyable affair -- stylishly shot, well acted and deftly threaded with moral ambiguity -- whereas the spy drama 'Covert Affairs' is surprisingly leaden.

I could go on about what 'White Collar' is doing right these days -- and I will in a bit -- but first, after a year of trying to crack this show's code, I've finally figured out what 'Covert Affairs' is: It's the spy show by and for people who've never seen 'Alias.'
