I think this is Alias light. No mythology (especially not of the Rambaldi persuasion) or intricate webs of deception. Perabo even looks like Jennifer Garner.
The show is about a CIA agent fresh out of The Farm, accompanied by her blind-techie-guy, who’s pretty interesting. I’m lukewarm about the whole thing, partially because the entire time I just wanted to see Sydney Bristow, Vaughn, Marshall and company. I hope it diverges a lot so I don’t make comparisons that it will NEVER live up to.
