state of affairs: pilot

Katherine Heigl’s return to television.

CIA analyst Charleston Tucker (Heigl) is struggling with the death of her fiance and trying to do her job well. She has to determine the country’s biggest threats and bring them to the President, Constance Payton (Alfre Woodard).

There was one scene that was particularly awesome but the rest of it was super boring. I don’t have an issue with Heigl’s acting (just her personality) and I appreciate seeing a smart woman on television. However, Tucker is not an easy character to root for despite having a sad backstory. It is pretty much a bunch of talking about terrorists in other countries and is that really what someone wants to watch on a weekly basis? I say no.
