What’s it about
Within the French secret service operates a clandestine branch of undercover agents. Dispatched to key locations all around the world and living under false identities for years at a time, their mission is to seek out and identify potential sources. In order to fulfill their mission, their false identities must be totally undetectable and highly elaborate. These fabricated identities are called legends . Creating them takes months of work, maintaining them takes discipline. All this and more lies deep in the heart of the most confidential branch of the secret service: The Bureau.
If you’ve never really liked spy movies please don’t let that stop you from giving this a try. The Bureau is a superb, one of a kind, international spy thriller. I’ve never been a fan of James Bond, et al but this is nothing like that. This is the real deal. I also love all the spy technology they use in the show. Loads of character depth and complex storylines. One of the few shows that lets the viewer decide what certain events or character choices means. In other words they don’t spoon feed their audience. ps: There are much better descriptions for this show than I could ever write so please keep perusing the comment section and be sure to check out season 2 and 3 that are just as good as the first season!
