I have only watched 4 episodes so far but I'm already comparing this show to MacGuyver and the A-Team.. why you might ask?
A double-agent working for both a ruthless terrorist organisation and for the CIA and yet when she comes across a bad guy she just nocks them out? Well that's a great way to win a war! How about carrying a weapon? Say a silenced usp? How about shooting you enemies so they can't return in another episode?
COME ON GIVE THE GIRL A GUN!!!
Example: She's chasing that other female agent that is about to climb up a ladder and get away on the roof and she asks her partner for his gun and then proceeds to shoot the other agent in the shoulder so she drops the bag! Come on she should have hunted her down and executed her, it would be far more realistic.
Example2: She was just in Moroco or whatever and she was spotted and the bad guys then shoot one of the people who she was workign with. What does her partner do? Starts beating them up instead of reaching for his gun?!?! Doesn't make sense.
Infact this series doesn't make sense. People are comparing it to 24, La Femme Nikita, X-Files, SG-1, Buffy and even James Bond. No it's like a mix between A-Team, Melrose Place and Dark Angel only taking the worst parts from those series.
The only fun thing is the guy who provides her with spy gear.
