Four different and brand new dishes on the menu next week on Zee Café @ 7.30 pm from Monday to Thursday and each one of them worth a try. Read on to take your pick of your favorite genre to watch during your mealtime.


Covert Affairs, Season 1
Monday, 9th April @ 7.30pm

Presently, one of the most popular shows in the US, Covert Affairs is an American Action Drama revolving around a young CIA trainee, Anne “Annie” Walker (Piper Perabo) who is prematurely promoted to fieldwork at the Domestic Protection Division (DPD). She is ably assisted by a tech operative August “Auggie” Anderson who was blinded on the job when he was serving in an Army Special Forces Unit.

The series pilot starts with Annie undertaking a polygraph test for CIA admission. During the test one gets to see glimpses of her character and nature as well as the fact that she fell in love on a holiday with a man wanted by the CIA who ditched her leaving only a cryptic message.

Annie is a lovable and determined CIA operative who is conversant is several languages. She is also clumsy and happy go lucky and her chemistry with Auggie who takes on the role of her guide and later on becomes her best friend is noteworthy.

I wouldn’t miss Covert Affairs if I were you. Set a reminder for Monday, 9th April, 7.30pm for this show definitely ranks under must watch.

Love Bites, Season 1
Tuesday, 10th April @ 7.30pm

NBC’s Love Bites highlights three vignettes every episode that focuses on love and relationships. It is a cute and amusing tale of love featuring guest appearances every week by television actors like Jennifer Love Hewitt (Ghost Whisperer), Bret Harrison, Kurtwood Smith (That 70’s show), Krista Allen, and Francis Conroy (Six Feet Under) to name a few.

This television version of a chick-flick is written by ‘Sex and the city’ fame Cindy Chupack who also penned ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’. The three recurring characters in the show are Annie Matopoulous (Becki Newton), Colleen Rouscher (Constance Zimmer), and Judd Rouscher (Greg Grunberg).


'Top Chef Masters',
Wednesday, 11th April @ 7.30pm

In ‘Top Chef Masters’, an American reality television competition, 24 world renowned chefs compete against each other week after week to nab the title of Top Chef Masters.  Each episode gives the chef a chance to win money for a charity of their choice. Every episode has a simple quickfire and a complicated elimination challenge. In each of the first six episodes, only three chefs compete against each other and only one of the three moves to the next level, the Champions round. The six chefs meet up for the final four weeks with each one being eliminated every week until the final one is crowned the winner.  


A Gifted Man, Season 1
Thursday, 12th April @ 7.30pm

A Medical drama with a supernatural undercurrent, A Gifted Man centers around a talented yet materialistic and self-absorbed surgeon, Michael Holt (Patrick Wilson) with uber rich clientele and an empty discontent life. Things change presumably for the better when the ghost of his recently deceased ex-wife, Anna Paul (Jennifer Ehle) pleads with him to run the free clinic she previously directed.

The patients in the free clinic are from a poor background, diametrically opposite to the rich patients he is used to treating in his upscale New York Clinic. Based on an interesting premise, A gifted man is definitely worth a try.

Watch the shows and let us know your thoughts on them. Which one is worth a watch and which one you rather ditch?

Happy Watching!
