It's a bit ironic to start a thread on a show I don't plan on watching... I watched the premiere of "Undercovers", J.J.Abrams new show, last night. As my wife describes it, it's Hart to Hart meets Alias: sexy married spies making cute while doing exciting espionage around the world. It's enjoyable. The leads are attractive and charismatic. The action is fun, the patter smart and sassy. The locales are varied. The supporting characters suffer from being one-dimensionally annoying, but there's room to grow. The weakness, for me, was it simply didn't give me anything new or exciting to be worth following regularly. As an action show, it suffers from having the action being interrupted by meet-cute moments between the married couple and not being a filled with skilled fight-actors. As a character drama, it wastes a lot of time on spy stuff that are necessary process for an Alias but interrupt a more Felicity-type show. And as a mythology show...where there is nothing. Except...it seems the creators noticed something was missing. The one hour pilot gave an adequate introduction, suggesting a procedural spy-action show with no over-arching story that requires watching every week. So in the middle is a throwaway scene, I think crudely done quickly with obviously low-budget rear-project car-driving scene, of their handler saying, 'they know nothing about their true purpose'. It feels bolted on, not fitting the show Maybe they finished the show and realized they forgot to actually have the show be what it's about. Or meant for the super story to evolve organically over the season, but found test-audiences need something up front to stay interested. I don't know. It didn't work for me. So I'm not watching this show this season. It's a good show, but I don't have time for good shows when there's enough great shows to watch instead. But if it turns out this is in fact the must-see show, that the plot evolves to something incredible, I pick it up in reruns and watch live next season.
