Piper Perabo stars in the new tv series for the USA network called "Covert Affiars." She plays Annie Walker on the show. Christopher Gorham, Kari Matchett, Anne Dudek, Sendhil Ramamurthy, and Peter Gallagher also star in the show.%0D %0D The show seems to be very popular right now because it's getting great reviews. Let's talk about the show on here.%0D %0D Any gossip information? Behind the scenes stuff, etc.

I love the show, never miss it. I've always like Piper as well. Hope it sticks around.
Not sure if they are still together but her gf used to be I think her manager.
I thought the same thing about Auggie, wondered if it would be found out that he wasn't really blind and that he's undercover himself there but I don't think so.
They've tried to cover that about CIA vs. FBI and their jurisdictions a couple of times so they are aware of it and work in an explanation as to why they are doing it.
Who do you think is leaking the information to the newspaper reporter? I was thinking it's the head of the agency, he seemed to have a lot of chemistry with the reporter and seemed to be flirting with her and visa versa. Of course he might have just been trying to be charming so she would reveal her source.
I kept going through motives - Auggie because of what happened to him. He's working with the agent who went rogue. The son of the former agency head because of how his father conducted his business. The wife, still working on her motive.

I watched the first episode because I generally like the shows on USA. I am also in love with Chris Gorham (from his "Popular" days, natch), but I just couldn't get past his character's blindness. Call me shallow, but his eyes are half of his appeal. Anyway, the show itself wasn't good enough to merit a second viewing.
I kept thinking Piper Perabo was an Olympic athlete at one time. I'm pretty sure I was thinking of Picabo Street, though.

[quote] In 2008 Anjelah was caught by paparazzi at an LA women-only bar with longtime companion Piper Perabo. Piper who was apparently very drunk, was photographed passionately kissing Johnson, and then proceeded to tell photographers that Anjelah, "is my partner, my lover, my soul mate." Johnson quickly hustled Piper into a waiting limo and the next day publicists for both women issued press reports indicating that the whole thing was a "silly joke at the expense of the paparazzi." However, the two women continue to be seen together almost exclusively, and according to reports frequently stay at the others home.

They appear to be rectifying that to some extent. I know they had sent a second unit to film in D.C., but this week's ep had actual scenes shot near the Capitol and along the Potomac. But yes, obviously most of it is still done in Toronto.
[quote]Once you get past the gaping thematic hole of a unit of the CIA doing domestic reconnaissance (which the CIA *does not do ever*), it's not bad.
I don't have a problem with this premise. There's been interagency tension between the FBI and CIA for decades, and in today's post-9/11 world with the real likelihood of foreign attacks on U.S. soil (which has happened only once since the Revolutionary War, at Pearl Harbor), I can see the CIA setting up a Domestic Protection Division to follow-up within the U.S. on terrorist activity initially taking place overseas. This also allows for the FBI to get pissy and insist on sending Dr. Suresh in to monitor them.
Btw no comment on the previews for next week? Chris Gorham has a fucking SMOKIN' bod (which we get to see shirtless and wet, emerging from the shower), and next week is all about him getting it on with his ex. Also, the comment upthread about this being a cheap "Alias" ripoff aren't entirely unfounded. The weakest part of "Alias" was its insistence the first couple of seasons of focusing on Sydney's boring home life. Now, if "Covert Affairs" can pull an "Alias" and off Annie's sister, then replace her with one genetically identical (as they did on "Alias" with Francie, leading to one of the most memorable bitchfights in television history), then things could get interesting!

The other senses of blind people are invariably heightened to compensate for a lack of sight. If you watch that scene closely, you'll notice that Auggie didn't see the car, but rather heard its squealing wheels behind him and knew it was headed right towards them. I seriously doubt he's "faking it," but I too wouldn't mind a future ep where he gets his sight back through some miracle new procedure.

First 2 seasons was that ridiculous no gun policy. She's always too far to be hit by bullets and able to get away...or so close that she incapacitates the bad guy(s) then simply leaves the gun lying on the ground. Sometimes the bad guy gets a 2nd wind, gets the gun again and shoots at her.
I said FINALLY, she's armed. Then they start in teasing the Auggie relationship. Because you must force a romance on these law enforcement/spy shows. It's Olivia/Elliot all over again. Now the couple who really had the chemistry got zilch. It's corny and predictable. The Simon thing was cool but then they kill him off and double down on the Auggie flirtation. They make it seem like she has no judgment when it comes to men. There's more drama now than actual suspense and twists. They have 3 more episodes to impress me, then I'm jumping ship.

Typically, Annie's character would have gone right to Joan and Arthur with anything like this. Instead, they have her traipsing to Columbia with Auggie who knew that the Puma was Arthur's son.

R120 Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Bravo. You can look at old episodes on their site. I think Piper was on the show around 3 weeks ago or so.

[quote]I think Wilcox is targeting Arthur's secret son because he wants "a son for a son" as retribution for Jai's death.
R89, who wrote that on 7/18, is quite the perceptive prophet.
I agree re. those who don't see much romantic chemistry between Annie and Auggie. IMO, Annie has always had the most chemistry on the show with Ayal, as far as romantic pairings go. I'm disappointed not to see him on this season so far, even though I guess it doesn't really fit with their storyline.
[quote]And why make Joan pregnant?
As others have mentioned, the actress was/is pregnant in real life. I can see why they decided to write it in if they wanted to keep the character on the show as her pregnancy progresses. It gets increasingly difficult to 'shoot around' a pregnant actress if you are going to keep her filming into the second and third trimesters. I find it far less distracting for it to be part of the storyline like this. And the pregnancy storyline isn't bothering me in this instance; they're not making it too much of a big thing.

I think Teo is working with Henry and that is how Henry found out about the safehouse and killed those people.
And what did he do to Joan that made her tell Arthur that it was time to come home?

I've never actually watched the show but maybe I should start. They're constantly filming scenes in my neighbourhood.

138 how close do you live to lakeshore? I remember seeing signs around when they were filming in Port Credit, but I've seen every episode of the show this far, and I can't tell wtf they were filming there!
I live in etobicoke, spending my summer in cookstown though.

I live in The Distillery and they were filming here last week. Also today along The Esplanade.

Do they also film quite a lot of scenes on location, including in DC, or just have the best CGI ever?
|by Original Poster||reply 141||08/09/2013|
It seems as if they shoot in Vancouver and just use exteriors of DC. I think they do a good job of blending the two.

I'm pretty sure it's shot entirely in Toronto.

The show is getting good ratings so I imagine it could go on for another couple of years. And if she's now a producer, that means more money for her.

Fourth episode in and I just don't buy the Auggie-Annie thing. And Hill Harper's teeth are annoying.

Piper has gotten even gayer this season! Since she's gotten engaged to that dude, she's letting all that pent up lezzz out!
And yes, her ass is amazing. It's even better (and gayer) in person.
|by Original Poster||reply 168||12/01/2013|
I predict that it will be a looong engagement and then they will "amicably separate" but still work together. She will pull a Maria Bello when she gets older.

They will definitely break up. Have you seen the fiance? He's as gay as the day is long.

He used to play Reginald, the Butler on General Hospital back in the day. I only know him from that character, but most butlers do seem a little gay, don't they? He had a great, dry sense of snark, too. He was always a bachelor, but for some weird reason, they suddenly had him dating another family's nanny and it always came off as rather implausible and forced to me. So, maybe life is imitating art...

The 5th season of the show is good so far. The writers have done a good job in writing Piper's character as more jaded and not so doe-eyed. Piper's acting has improved. But no way is she engaged to that producer guy. She's way too gay.
|by Original Poster||reply 194||07/04/2014|

Big mistake. There is virtually no way of knowing for sure whether someone has had pec implants, unlike tittie implants. Pecs are comparatively easy to define, and you can have big ones even if you're a bit flabby in other areas -- or, on the flip side, a bit scrawny in other areas.
Hair weaves are easier to detect though, particularly bad ones (although the technology behind them is getting better and better). McBongo has one of the more obvious ones, but I think it's a safe assumption that a significant percentage of actors over 35 have them.

'Covert Affairs' creators talk that season 5 finale ending
Spoiler alert: The Covert Affairs season 5 finale, “Gold Soundz,” brought about big changes for Annie (Piper Perabo) and Auggie (Chris Gorham). After almost being killed, again, the latter decided he wants to leave the agency and travel the world with Natasha (Liane Balaban). If/when the show gets an order for a sixth season, would Auggie be in it? “Oh, he’ll be in it,” co-creator Matt Corman assures us. “It’s a slightly different dynamic for him at the outset. I think for now he’s trying this, trying something different. It’s interesting, he’s been so defined by his job. He has the CIA so dialed that for him, maybe more than any of our other characters, stepping out of that workplace is gonna be a real shift.”
With Arthur (Peter Gallagher) considering a run for Senate, Joan (Kari Matchett) heading up a new task force, and Annie debating whom to work for, whether to accept that mid-action sequence proposal from McQuaid (Nic Bishop), and what to do about her heart, season 6 could look a lot different. “It’s like any family, right, people go off in different directions, but they’re all still a family. There will always be things that unify them,” co-creator Chris Ord says. “And,” adds Corman, “pull them back together.”
The finale ended with Auggie telling Annie to close her eyes and trust her instinct about what to do next. Her final words, “Got it,” mean she knows the answer. Corman and Ord have it as well and hope they get the chance to write it. What they will say: They knew going into season 5 where they wanted to end up with Annie and McQuaid. “For us, he’s such an engaging character and fun guy to be around, and so important in Annie’s life right now, that it’s hard to imagine that he would not be a part of a season 6,” Ord says. We could also see Belenko (Shawn Doyle) again: “He’s now motivated against Russia,” Corman says, “and as dangerous and unpredictable as he’s been, could represent a really terrific asset for Annie.”
