Though I don’t own a TV, I love a good spy show (thanks Amazon and Netflix, you guys rock).
When I was younger, Alias was my show of choice. It was cancelled in 2006, but for most of middle/high school, I definitely thought Jennifer Garner was the most badass person on the planet.
I’ve since moved on to a newer, happier spy show. If you’re an adventurer or adventurer-in-training, you’ll absolutely love it: hello Covert Affairs.
The mid-season premiere was last Thursday and, though season 4 didn’t dazzle me, season 5 is definitely worth the watch. Just give it a grace episode or so as they tie everything from 4 together.
Things to love include…
1) Annie’s outfits — definitely America’s most stylin’ spy 2) A great new love interest 3) Perfect balance between plot and character development 4) A subtle warning about the dangers of NSA data monitoring
Piper Perabo, the 38-year-old lead actress who plays Annie Walker, also seems to have discovered the fountain of youth. She has a vibrant mixture of effortlessly cool and glowingly healthy that seems to increase daily.
I did a little research, and it seems she’s a big green juice and salmon kind of girl. She sometimes puts chlorophyll in her water, telling Into the Gloss: “What you eat really affects how you look, and the better you are to your body, the better you feel. … When I put chlorophyll in my water, for example, I know that I feel more hydrated, and I just feel—this is going to sound so weird—but your sweat smells better, and it’s literally cleaner…you feel like the system is running cleaner.”
Interesting. I might be checking out this chlorophyll thing…
By the way, you can get caught up on Covert Affairs seasons one through four (three is the best, but they’re all great) for FREE on Amazon.
Until next time, amigos!
