The essence of "Whiskey Cavalier" can be found just in the name of the protagonist. "Will Chase" is a purposefully funny twinkle of a name that tries to be both thoughtless and very stupid, as an FBI agent (played by Scott Foley) to which he belongs. This is not an ordinary spy drama, "Whiskey Cavalier" insists on every step, but the funny spy drama refuses to take itself too seriously. Yes, it's cheesy, but it's hard to believe that there's too much against the show, when it's also half the point.
Despite its long hour, the series was created by Just Hunting ("Just Shoot Me"), released. Bill Laurence ("Scrubs"), and partly directed by Peter Atencio ("Key and Peele"), so the genealogy behind him is more comedic than the roots of the drama. Her characters are joking and giving each other (friendly) grief, joking at work, and not too lingering in life or death. All told, "Whiskey Cavalier" is so aggressively breezy that it takes a second to realize that his jokes could of course be sharper than, say, who misses a penis for keys. (How do you ask? Who cares, answers "Whiskey Cavalier" with an amazing smile.)
This determination to entertain, however, does not mean that the show is a direct parody. In fact, seriously perceives his spies that Atenchio immerses his teeth in several sequences with a high octane number, complete with hand-to-hand combat, risky stunts and serious explosions. The series was also largely filmed on the spot in Prague, which immediately distinguishes "Whiskey Cavalier" from dozens of dramatic drama network seasons taking place in or around Los Angeles.
wore cliches of spy thrillers, especially with its wires. Will (pseudonym "Whiskey Cavalier") is an FBI agent who balances his sterling reputation in this area with a recent surprise. His irrelevant partner is Lauren Cohan, a rigorous NIA CIA who "does not engage in emotional affection," and literally calls himself a lone wolf. There are at least some attempts to overturn the gender scenario, since Will's problem is that he is becoming too emotional, and Frankie refuses to admit that she has ever felt something, but the show is so difficult to describe these defining characteristics, which sometimes forgets to show us something, Anything else about any character. (He also insists that Will and Frankie have undeniable sexual chemistry, but at least in two episodes shown to critics who have not yet proven themselves.)
Will and Frankie also, according to the tradition of spy comedy, have surrounded the team with more Various characters that stop them from making themselves stupid. Susan (Ana Ortis) is the best profile of the FBI and Will's best friend; Edgar (Tyler James Williams) is a former NSA employee whose hacker skills are very useful; Jai (Vir Das) is a technical expert and the only person Frankie believes in without reservations. The team's dynamics requires more time to gel as the actor gets comfortable with each other and their roles, but Williams, at least, gets a strong gate as an early, excellent result.
ABC premieres Whiskey Cavalier after the Oscars before returning the show to their usual time interval, indicating at least some confidence in its ability to capture an audience that may turn out to be a smart game. [Whisky Cavalier] is not going to revolutionize the TV, as we know it, but at least it is easily reduced.
