Picks and Pans Review: Riviera

Ben Masters plays your basic disgruntled ex-spy. But he's called back into the game because there's a rat in The Agency. While hunting for the spies' spy, Masters gets tied up with an archaeologist who, in turn, is being hunted by a greedy bad guy who wants to loot an Egyptian pyramid. Though I never did quite figure out what was going on, I couldn't take my eyes off the show's lush and gorgeous scenery from Europe and Egypt and its exciting, imaginative ending. As a two-hour movie, Riviera is a little loose in the joints. As a one-hour adventure show, it could have been hot.
