Whiskey Cavalier: Season 1 Reviews

February 27, 2019
This isn't a regular spy drama, Whiskey Cavalier insists at every turn, but a fun spy drama that refuses to take itself too seriously. Yes, it's cheesy, but it's hard to hold that against the show too much when it's also half the point.

Unlike NBC's new and deadly serious The Enemy Within, you likely won't find this one a chore or headache to watch.

Whiskey Cavalier knows what it is - which is a compliment, since many shows don't. And what it is is a good-looking action dramedy with good-looking people; it's aiming for a Mr. & Mrs. Smith sort of vibe.

"Whiskey Cavalier" isn't a particularly stiff drink... Still, if there's room for a light-hearted spy procedural right now, the show feels like a pretty top-shelf version of one

After "Enemy Within," "Whiskey Cavalier" looks giddily enjoyable, if no less prefab in action and exposition.

Whiskey Cavalier also calls back to flirty, frothy blends of screwball comedy and cases of the week.

Lots of people take bullets in the bobo... at the hands of incredibly telegenic people. That makes the violence plucky and entertaining, almost charming. Sexy, even.

I'm happy to overlook whatever is lacking or obvious or oversold or simplistic in its construction for the sake of the adventure, the scenery and the fun gang dynamics.

Whiskey Cavalier may not take you back to 1985, but it comes closer than some of the recent stabs at this genre.

I hope Whiskey Cavalier pulls it off. There's room for silly, fun stories on TV that are actually silly and fun, even if they feel comfortably familiar.
