Covert Affairs and Suits: Sexy Spies and Lawyer-y Lawyers

by Bill Frost
- Posted // 2013-07-16 -

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.
