Summary of Season 1 (2010) - 3 discs

Annie goes from CIA trainee to field operative in a flash, thanks to her gift for languages, her gung-ho attitude and her top-notch investigative skills -- or so she thinks. The agency, however, may be more interested in her past than in her future.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that they won't be seeing constant violence in this action-packed spy series. But when they do, they'll get fast-paced scenes involving guns, blades, and hand-to-hand combat between male and female characters. There's also some sexual innuendo between characters, along with some steamy implied sex, although there isn't any nudity beyond bare backs. Characters also use alcohol to deal with stress, subtly tout products like Christian Louboutin shoes, and occasionally use words like "hell" or "damn."

Sexual Content

Some sexual banter and steamy simulated sex, with bare backs visible. The main character occasionally uses her sexuality to procure information from male targets.


Violence isn't overly bloody, but the action sequences are pretty intense. Both male and female characters experience everything from gun violence to punching, kicking, and choking.


Words like "damn" and "hell" might be used, but it's infrequent.

Social Behavior

An air of suspicion, distrust, and duplicity hangs around most of the characters. There's also a general sense that the world isn't as safe as we'd like to think it is.


Visible logos include Christian Louboutin shoes, Volkswagen, Starbucks, and TGI Fridays. Characters occasionally tout the products, but it's subtle.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Colleagues sometimes use alcohol to blow off steam, meeting in bars for after-hours social drinking. Other characters have wine with dinner, etc.
