Haha they’re not series regulars, but they do have reoccuring roles. And on the whole I thoroughly enjoy the show. It’s not the “serious business” sort of spy drama. There are cool gadgets that clearly wouldn’t work in real life, but it’s all good fun. And I love that Sydney is never treated as weak, and that her gender is never really an issue. She’s an awesome spy and for that reason she is seen as valuable by just about everyone around her. The show flips a few tropes that normally just apply to men on their heads, and while Sydney is an action hero she still retains her femininity. She’s just a great character all around and the show’s early seasons are fantastic.
