Undercovers TV Show Pilot NBC-Watch Season Premiere Online S01E01 – Undercovers pilot directed by J. J. Abrams and written by J. J. Abrams & Josh Reims aired earlier tonight on NBC. Undercovers TV show is really a breath of fresh air in a monotone TV world. In its pilot the show, offered an interesting mix of action and romance, with a slight touch of comedy.
JJ Abrams is known for creating hits, just as he did with “Lost” and “Alias.” Now, with his new series “Undercovers” finally debuting, it is clear that he has designed the show to be much more simple and easier to follow than his previous endeavors. The series is a husband/wife spy caper along the same lines as everyone’s favorite Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie tandem film. It will be relatively easy for fans to follow the storyline but does have a number of very high octane action scenes that should reel the viewers in, leading to another successful show launch by JJ Abrams.
Stephen, played by Boris Kodjoe, and Samantha, played by Gugu Mbatha-Raw, are married and both know that they were spies. They also have decided to comply with a security measure that does not allow them to disclose what they do during their spying endeavors.
The show will rely on the characters inability to keep things secret between them to drive the plot forward. They are, after all, married, and probably will end up divulging some of the juiciest information regarding their jobs to each other at some point. Now the question becomes; will they find out that they are working against one another at some point?
The show is definitely a removal from the typical JJ Abrams project, but should fill a void with another successful, albeit cutesy show.
Overall, Undercovers is simple and is not for people looking for deep and philosophical TV experience. But for those looking for decent entertainment it is definitely a winner. Although, the pilot did not offer much in terms of plot and storyline, we do hope the show will improve on that matter.
