Let there be an ending within the first season, with Alex’s family coming to the side of America and squash the SVR?

I seen 2 episodes so far , and I’m a little disappointed in it . For example , Alex O’Conner has brains and resources but no weapons or fighting skills . Like in the last 10 minutes of episode 2 when the SVR informant was shot by the enemy SVR hit squad , Alex hid by like a coward before his life was saved by his mother when she killed that sniper . I know I ‘m out of line or judgmental , but you think this guy a hero .Right . If this show survives any longer , please give this kid a spine or I will stop watching this . Bye for now .

After watchingi it for a few minutes seeing a man going to burned alive is more than I could take. That’s not my idea of entertainment. Too much violence .on TV .

Love spy, intrigue, lawyer, D.C. Govt shows. HATE so-called Reality shows. At least I know what I like is fiction.

This looks like the most interesting new show NBC has ordered this year. Spies. Family drama. Scott Cohen. Three solid reasons to tune in. I’m disappointed this is being used as a mid-season replacement. I would have thought this show would get the Monday @10 slot after Blacklist wraps for mid-season break. I’ve seen the trailer for State of Affairs, and it didn’t exactly grab me. Hopefully I’m wrong and NBC isn’t wasting there best lead-in on a dud…

….Because George Nolfi is a superb writer and outstanding director.


Debbie May 8, 2014 at 12:58 pm

It has Scott Cohen, that’s all the reason I need to watch it. Looking forward to it
