As sexy spy girls go, the fashionable Annie Walker (played by Piper Perabo) is no bad apple against-the-system turncoat changing her stripes again and again as her needle seeks its true north (ie like we saw on Alias or Nikita with their covert smoke and mirrors disguises plus a lot of martial arts as they have no other choice but to work for cancerous outgrowths of the system or heavy hitter secret agencies that are often more powerful than governments). Rather Walker--like that down home kind of Tex-American character name sounds--is a true believer in the system and her true north is found as she keeps trying to protect it. Yet, as a spy who generally believes in the CIA and doing "the right thing", Annie and her entourage often find themselves compromising the system in order to weed out corruption in high places. Fun, sexy, sweet, full of punch and action--this is a show which delights because it is action plus good friendships, based on love and trust in a mire of the ever-distrustful.

Wow, I lost interest in this one when the new guy came into Annie's life and I could never tell if he was a good guy or a bad guy. I really missed Auggie and Annie as an item.

First few seasons were good... not realistic in the slightest but a very easy watch and entertaining.

This show was fun for 3 seasons. Then it seemed to lose focus. Nice cast. Piper Perabo was a good lead. And Oded Fehr was always a welcome guest.

It is a lot of fun in the beginning but after the second season did it lose its appeal.

Just heard about the cancellation WTH!
This of course was the worst season, why the heart disease, the leaving of the agency, a new love interest, what a writing mess. It's as if they were hoping for the shows ultimate end. Annie Walker was no longer fresh and exciting, as in the beginning. Replaced by a permanent scowl, this Annie broke Auggies heart and made every challenge too personal. I am extremely disappointed, this show had so much potential.
