Undercovers: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Undercovers: Season 1 (2010)



Critic Consensus: Visually sharp but narratively undercooked, Undercovers is occasionally fun but lacks the dramatic tension needed to pull off its blend of action and comedy.

Critic Reviews for Undercovers: Season 1

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (13)

"Undercovers" is so content to lapse into genre conventions, that it feels complacent and banal.

Top Critic

It feels more like a trip to nowhere.

September 30, 2010 | Full Review…

With dazzling action scenes and a pair of stars who ooze charm and sensuality, Undercovers easily overcomes its predictability.

September 30, 2010 | Full Review…

Spy dramas sometimes get too enamored of their own twists, subplots and dark details, but this one never becomes impenetrable.

September 30, 2010 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It is all a little too casual and humorous to be convincing.

September 30, 2010 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

The series also feels redundant and only on NBC's schedule because of its pedigree -- JJ Abrams ("Lost," "Star Trek").
