This is a fast moving spy series focusing on Annie but with plenty of stories building the characters of her friend/handler Auggie and her bosses, Joan and Arthur. There is a lot of filming in countries around the world adding to viewer interest, rather than having the stories set in just one place. It's a good quality production and the acting is pretty good all around. Maybe I'm a bit picky, but I did get a bit tired of Annie being so perfect as an agent, even if she has plenty of issues with her personal life. I did, quite often, feel sorry for her fellow agents who just seemed to be there to do menial tasks and support Annie in her fast-paced world.
In the early seasons there was a lot of time spent discussing the relationship between Annie and her sister Danielle but this was dropped after season 3. I felt that this sucked the life/humanity out of the show and it was much more clinical after this. Annie became almost robotic at times and I can see why the series wasn't renewed after the conclusion of season 5.
Maybe this sounds a bit harsh but I'm highlighting the things that I think stopped the show from being outstanding. But, overall it was pretty impressive and worthwhile seeing through. Don't expect too much from the DVD presentation - it's quite poor at times in the video department with lots of macroblocking and poor colour.
