June 9, 2020
Undercovers is fast and formidable, but it's also forgettable.

[It's] not particularly original, but at least it has fun getting there.

But this is escapist fare and escaping with this couple wouldn't be the worst way to spend an hour. It's likable enough and the performances make it fun.

While the concept is familiar and at times recycled, J.J. Abrams' Undercovers delivers an espionage thriller with a dash of romantic comedy that certainly entertains.

We get the breezy nod to classic series like Hart to Hart and Scarecrow and Mrs. King -- but it would be nice to get that style with a side of substance.

"Undercovers:" quite possibly one of the best meldings of the two sides of Abrams thus far.

When I write that "Undercovers is basically a slicker, more expensive, less geeky version of 'Chuck,'" that's not quite meant as an insult. The pilot is stylish, sexy and, at its best, quite fun.

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

Adventure is always more fun when there's romantic frisson in the background.

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

Undercovers, a creation that is more hype than heft, is from J.J. Abrams. No, it isn't as good as those shows ["Alias," "Fringe," and "Dollhouse"], but it is still a lot of fun.

I'll keep watching, in the hopes that 'Undercovers' does not remain weightless and rote underneath its glossy exterior.

It's Alias for people who believe that the best parts of Alias were the first ten minutes of any given episode, and who could have done without the rest.
