USA's newest series Covert Affairs has had it's ups and downs in its freshman season. While the pilot was great the following couple of episodes were merely ok, but recently the series has been hitting it out of the park, and tonight's episode, titled "Communication Breakdown," looks like a Grand Slam.
Dubbed "the Auggie episode" by some, the episode centers heavily on Christopher Gorham's character as a citywide technology blackout hits D.C. The blackout comes at a bad time as the city is hosting a conference between the government and hackers from across the globe. When the blackout is traced back to Auggie's ex-girlfriend, Natasha, he gets his wish to be sent back into the field. The episode has been getting great reviews, especially for one particular fight scene, which sounds amazing.
I was hoping to have a review for you here today, but I've been having technical issues and haven't had a chance to watch the episode myself. Instead I'll be tuning in to USA tonight at 10/9c to see if the episode is as good as I've heard. I recommend you do the same. Below you'll find a preview and a scene from tonight's episode.
