Really great show.

Covert Affairs in obviously just something that started as a filler show, but has, like most filler shows grown into something more. The dynamic between Auggie and Annie is intense but something that makes all of the fans keep coming back for more. There isn't as much violence as some of the shows that are shown around the same time as this but, there are several episodes where people get shot on screen. Annie as a whole is a very good role model for young women and teenagers despite the brief 3 week fling that she had while abroad in sri lanka. Auggie is also a good role model most of the time but there is the issue of the women such as Natasha Petonova and Liza Hern, who he has been in relationships with but have been influenced by the CIA. All in all Covert Affairs in one of the best shows on TV at the moment.

Riduclous!

Covert Affairs I thought was a boring unhumouring show that lacks a lot of everything!

Very Good TV program, but not for little kids...

Covert Affairs is really good but it contains: Violence- There are lots (in every episode) gunfights, fistfights, strangling, choking, headbutting, etc, etc, and it's quite gory. Every gunshot is accompanied by a blood spurt, and everything else mentioned above involves a minor amount of blood and gore. 8/10 for violence because it is so bloody and gory and frequent. Language- Nothing major. B**ch, Da*n, H*ll and Sl*t said infrequently. Language is nothing you wouldn't hear in a PG. 2/10 for language Sex- There are occasional mild to moderate sex references. These involve references to sex in general & implied rape. Nothing to major. There can also be some occasional sex scenes (which is nothing major, PG material,) which may involve some very brief sexual nudity. 5/10 for sex. Drinking, Drugs & Smoking- Characters are seen going to a bar and occasionally, getting drunk. Some episodes contain drunk characters. Nothing major. One episode contains scenes of drug intake, which is seen clearly. 5/10 for drinking, drugs & smoking. Overall = 24/40. If Covert Affairs were a movie it would be Rated R for frequent bloody violence, brief sexual nudity & drug scenes. If you tone down the violence in Covert Affairs, it would be a PG-13.

i rate this title IFFY for ages 13+

The good stuff * Role models: Although the main character is a strong female role model who's working to take down dangerous criminals on behalf of the U.S. government, she's forced to lie about her job to a variety of people -- including her family. She also breaks into buildings she's not supposed to be in and conceals information from the FBI, etc. What to watch out for * Messages: An air of suspicion, distrust, and duplicity hangs around most of the characters. There's also a general sense that the world isn't as safe as we'd like to think it is. * Violence: Violence isn't overly bloody, but the action sequences are pretty intense. Both male and female characters experience everything from gun violence to punching, kicking, and choking. * Sex: Some sexual banter and steamy simulated sex, with bare backs visible. The main character occasionally uses her sexuality to procure information from male targets. * Language: Words like "d--n" and "h--l" might be used, but it's infrequent. * Consumerism: Visible logos include Christian Louboutin shoes, Volkswagen, Starbucks, and TGI Fridays. Characters occasionally tout the products, but it's subtle. * Drinking, drugs, & smoking: Colleagues sometimes use alcohol to blow off steam, meeting in bars for after-hours social drinking. Other characters have wine with dinner, etc.
