If 24 makes you nervous with its code-red scenarios, ABC's new documentary series is Mommy bringing you a glass of warm milk. It shows the country's enormous hive of security agents as they go about their business: stopping drugs and keeping immigrants from being smuggled in cars across our borders, scrutinizing luggage and visas at airports, and so on. Good, vital work—just not riveting TV.
