Tagline: Espionage never tasted so salty.

Plot: Covert black ops and espionage take a back seat to zany personalities and relationships between secret agents and drones.

My rating: 9/10

Will I watch it again? YES!!!

I was hooked on this show since the first episode aired.  The dialogue is faster than any show I know and it's funny as hell.  The voice talent is incredible.  It's outrageous and crass and that's part of the charm.  Every season was hilarious until season 7 when the gang moved to Los Angeles and that's when something drastic happened that shocked the shit out of me.  It wasn't funny.  I even gave it some time and started season 7 over and I still wasn't laughing.  I could probably count on both hands how many times I laughed for that ten episode run.  What the hell happened?  And season 8, while I appreciate the departure into something different, it was largely unfunny.  The end is near.  I read somewhere they were only doing a total of 9 or 10 seasons and that would end the series.  I hope it picks up.  I love this too much to want the quality to drip.  I don't care what they do or where the plot goes.  I just want the funny back.  Regardless, we'll always have the first six seasons.
