    Love the show but somestimes I miss the episode and need to watch them on internet. But I haven’t seen the ones that I had missed because I don’t see the schedule for this show on USA.

  2. Viciane says

    Please renew. It’s a show my whole family watches and anxiously waits for each week. From the 11 year old to the 50 year old, we all love to watch it together and sit on the edges of our seats together.

    Love the characters! One of my favorite shows!!! Wached it since day one and have been hooked ever since! Hoping for another awesome season.

  4. Beth says

    I love this show! I just got into it after Lena killed Annie’s ‘love interest’ it was just one when I was watching SVU on USA one night. Man, it is great to see strong females in the criminal justice/investigative field. I wish half of my leads came that easy. Given, the hunt and the find is fun but, still there’s always the risk. LOVE THIS SHOW!!!!!! Gonna start watching from season 1.

    This is a really good spy drama. Sometimes it is hard to believe Annie gets out of everything, but the show is interesting and I do enjoy it. I hope they don’t cancel it when they keep on the stupid REALITY shows.

    I really like this show. The plot lines keep you interested and there is a lot of action. The cast interact well together.

    Great show!
    We get it on showcase and it is one of my top five favourites of the 22 PVR events I record weekly. Most of the lead actors are great and the various Venus or locations for the show add intrigue.
    Making Perabo tougher (like Melissa George of Hunted) might spark it up a little and draw a larger audience.

    Great show. I suspect, though, that it severely lacks promotion. It also is not consistently shown on the air— making audience think it has been cancelled, and so they lose interest. Maybe you should rerun from first episode, advertise and promote vigorously to create a new batch of audience. Also, build up and promote Perabo and Gorman in other venues. On their own, they will be able to attract and hold their own following, thus boosting the show’s ratings. Ever think of turning the franchise into a full blown movie? Your plot line and characters as portrayed by current actors are better than some of what’s already out there.
