Alias (2001)

If you’re into action, mystery, and family drama, you’ll be hooked on Alias. The series follows Sydney Bristow, a CIA double agent navigating dangerous missions while trying to maintain a personal life with her father, friends, and love interests.

Nikita is a badass, she can kick butt, hack systems, and charm her way out of trouble, and unlike others in her field of work, Nikita has a heart and a conscience too. The series sees her teaming up with other rebel agents, hackers, and friends to bring down Division, an agency that turns kids into killers. 

Covert Affairs (2010)

How about a show that features a spy who is not a James Bond wannabe but a smart, resourceful, and charming woman who can handle any situation? That’s Annie Walker from Covert Affairs for you. She is a CIA trainee who gets thrust into the field and paired with Auggie Anderson, a man who knows his way with computers.

Together, they jet-set around the globe on all sorts of missions while also dealing with the shady stuff happening within their own agency and their personal lives. 

Chuck (2007)

Imagine becoming a spy just by opening an email. Believe it or not, that is exactly Chuck Bartowski’s story. Before email, he used to be a geeky tech guy at a Buy More store, but one day, Chuck accidentally gets all the CIA and NSA secrets downloaded into his brain.

The first season sees him teaming up with agents Sarah Walker and John Casey to save the world from danger. Fun fact: it’s the one that kickstarted Zachary Levi’s career before he became Shazam.

Burn Notice (2007)

Imagine yourself as a spy who gets the boot right in the thick of a mission. Now you’re stranded in Miami, forced to fend for yourself. That’s the setup for Burn Notice, a TV series that leaves no stone unturned when it comes to humor and drama.

If you’re interested to know, it’s the same show that put Jeffrey Donovan on the map as a household name and a fan favorite.

The Americans (2013)

Forget Spiderman; what if your friendly neighbors are actually Soviet spies? That’s the premise of The Americans, a TV series that chronicles the days and nights of Philip and Elizabeth Jennings, two KGB agents posing as a married couple in 1980s America.

Critics have called it a gripping and realistic exploration of the moral dilemmas, personal conflicts, and political games that defined the Cold War era. Did you know? Both Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell won the Emmy and Golden Globe awards for their roles.

Alias Smith and Jones (1971)

How about tuning in to a series about two outlaw friends striving to turn over a new leaf, but they’ve gotta keep their pact with the governor hush-hush? That’s the gist of Alias Smith and Jones, tracking Hannibal Heyes and Kid Curry, two of the Wild West’s most notorious figures, who are granted amnesty on one condition: they stay out of trouble for a year.

It’s a delightful, adventure-packed ride that’ll have you chuckling and cheering on the good guys. Sadly, it’s also remembered as the series that ended tragically with Duel’s passing.
