The Auggie/Annie will-they-or-won’t-they continues to be smartly played by Covert Affairs. In the past, he’s the one who’s missed moments when the look on her face revealed the depth of her feelings for him because he’s blind. In last night’s episode, it was her tunnel vision when it came to bringing Lena to justice that made her incapable of seeing that Auggie’s realized he has feelings for her, too. Actually, strike that. Annie is a smart woman. I think she did understood what Auggie meant when he phoned her and begged her to leave Russia. Watch the clip below. READ FULL STORY »

Spring is in the air, and Covert Affairs star Christopher Gorham captured a heartwarmingly symbolic sign of it today in Washington, D.C., when he filmed White House security reuniting a mother duck with her offspring who were struggling to make the step up onto the lawn. “Aw factor of 10!” Gorham wrote alongside his WhoSay video post. Check out the video below.
Last night, the promo USA aired for the Dec. 6 season finale of Covert Affairs definitely got fans talking. “All season long, he was always there for her,” the voiceover says of Christopher Gorham’s Auggie and Piper Perabo’s Annie. “Now, will admitting her true feelings be her toughest mission yet?” The real question is, was it just the show’s female fans doing all the tweeting? Here’s why I’m asking: Yesterday, I chatted with Gorham for two items we’ll post next week: A fun, spoiler-free EW Pop Culture Personality Test before the finale and a juicy postmortem Q&A after it airs. During the personality test portion of our chat, I asked him to name a will-they-or-won’t-they TV couple he roots for… READ FULL STORY »
'Covert Affairs': Are Auggie and Annie the new Booth and Brennan, Castle and Beckett -- only less frustrating?
On this week’s Covert Affairs, we learned more than our individual tolerance of jazz when Auggie traveled to Istanbul for a music festival, and how convenient it was that he made friends with a trusting, game, forward flight attendant who could help him track the traitor/terrorist who blinded him with a bomb in Iraq in 2007. We found out that Auggie had never told anyone what happened with his special forces unit until he spilled all to Annie over a round (or two, or three) of beer. That end scene reminded me of something we’d see on Bones, which made me wonder if Auggie and Annie are my new Booth and Brennan. I thought back to a recent conversation with Christopher Gorham, who said that while most fans he’s heard from want Auggie and Annie together at some point, the majority of them are for waiting. “[T]hey agree with me that if that’s going to happen, it needs to happen a long, long time from now,” he said. “Most of what makes those pairings so much fun is the potential, the flirting, the missed opportunities. That’s what’s so exciting. If you go there too soon, you let the air out of the balloon.”
As someone who’s seen every episode of Bones with six seasons of sexual tension that needed to be acted on, watching a series that allows you to enjoy some chemistry but not feel the desire to force it is just so… pleasant. Because Covert Affairs doesn’t revolve around their relationship alone, what with Annie usually out in the field and Auggie at his desk, we accept that their friendship will naturally deepen at a slower pace.

Comcast Corp., the nation’s largest cable company, has released the results of its annual “TV Pulse Survey” on TV time-shifting. Not surprisingly, the practice is increasing. Among the 1,000 randomly-selected participants, 62 percent now reported having watched primetime shows through technologies that include the DVR, VOD (video-on-demand) and Internet, and 61 percent of viewers said they were time-shifting programs more than they did a year ago. More interestingly, Comcast said on-demand orders of TV shows now surpass movies.
We’ve covered DVR usage a lot on PopWatch (so we’ll just let the poll below do the talking), but let’s discuss how we, the ones so devoted to TV that we’ve named our DVRs and our Slankets, use on demand…. READ FULL STORY »
