Covert Affairs. Maybe a little gay.
It may be apparent that I watch too much television. Given this, how is it possible that I missed the build up to Covert Affairs, which is the best new show on TV? Why is it so good, you ask? First, it's about spies. Second, it's just good—with potential—potential— to be almost (almost) as good as Alias. (Note: Do yourself a favor and watch this Alias link.) And lastly, Covert Affairs stars Piper Perabo, who we all love from her lesbian roles in Imagine Me & You and Lost and Delirious. As far as I can tell, Piper Perabo is straight. But the girl plays lesbians in movies, and we love her for that. Also, she told Curve magazine that her crush on Diane Keaton helped inspire her to play gay: "[Working with Keaton is] sort of dreamy, I have to say. She’s a magnificent woman. Magnificent. Intelligent, politically astute, artistic. She’s got a rockin’ bod for 60. I’m kind of infatuated with her. I follow her around like a puppy." Okaaay. Maybe Piper is a little gay.
