USA's Covert Affairs and Suits premiere for their respective seasons tonight, in case you didn't have enough summer viewing to keep up on. ---
Besides Piper Perabo’s lush lips and Peter Gallagher’s lush-er eyebrows, the best thing about CIA soap Covert Affairs is the episode titles: They’re all named after rock songs. Season 1 was all Led Zeppelin tunes; Season 2, R.E.M.; Season 3, David Bowie. This year, it’s all Pixies, kicking off tonight with “Vamos,” wherein the long-simmering romance between Perabo’s Agent Annie and co-spy Auggie (Christopher Gorham) finally jumps that Moonlighting shark and, surprisingly, doesn’t ruin everything. This looks to be one of those rare seasons when a series promises “more danger” and “higher stakes” and actually delivers. Unlike lawyer drama Suits, which has somehow become even less compelling than … Franklin & Bash.
