Obviously the CIA isn't very good at disguise. And they use the media all the time, except they don't disguise themselves as media, many of them ARE the media.

It kind of figures that TV and film does a much better job with disguises than with other things they've had on this series. After all, it's acting! If an actor can become a character, an actor can probably portray a character becoming an actor.

When she said “voice modulation”, all I can think of is a bunch of CIA agents running around sounding like a dalek... surprisingly disturbing more than funny 😅

4:20 So you'll use other covers like doctors and aid workers, putting thousands of innocent people at risk in hostile countries. You are scum.

When Superman was created, only bad guys were masks so Superman couldn't wear a mask so the "I can't tell who you really are because of glasses " idea was invented

The agent taking the L pill bit was intense. Its amazing that the agent killed themself before being tortured/ giving info away

Please get a new editor the first view videos were interesting but constantly cutting them off every 5 seconds for a stupid joke is getting obnoxious not to mention how many days/weeks are wasted editing these videos going through these movies to find some line to fit in with what the guest is talking about. There's pretty much nothing to lose and a lot to gain by getting a better editor you'd have far more videos and a lot less annoyed people clicking off.

If possible, slap that stupid editor of yours silly, please. She's trying so hard to be respectful to and also responsible about describing the L-pill suicide event in 16:10, yet the cuts completely undermine her. You guys do a bad job at editing. Period.

I was surprised you never mentioned "Burn Notice" This was one of the best TV spy shows I've seen. I would've loved to hear your opinions about it. If you make another one of these videos, can you include that show?

Argo is probably the best film I've ever seen. I loved the end where they were still tense until they were out of Iran air space, since the threat of being shot down was still very real. The whole movie is very accurate

This editing is obnoxious and has been for many videos in this series. Countless people have complained and yet the editor continues to make otherwise interesting content deeply frustrating to watch. Please don't think you're better than the viewers and make an adjustment to this already.

IRL she's a dark Colombian girl named Victoria Margarita. Also when she said "Ben Affleck played my husband Tony Mendez", that was unexpected.
