You know what we mean by that, sometimes you're just in the mood for pop culture treats? You want to watch a program that's engaging, but not one that requires you to figure out storylines or deeper meanings. But even if a program is just mindless fun, it's better when it's done effectively. Is that the case with a new Prime Video series from Japan?


Opening Shot: A scratchy recording states that The Desus Gate is in effect, and then we see someone stand before an illuminated wall of weapons, including some ninja actors as well as rifles.

The gist: A woman is being held captive in Manila on Christmas Eve 2021. We then travel to Tokyo on February 21, 2022. There is a danger, which is why two members of the Group of Spies, a top-secret part of the Public Security Intelligence Agency, are undercover at the reception: Matsaharu Katsuki (Yukiyoshi Ozawa) and freelance spy Rei Hiyama (Lauren Tsai). They are waiting for another GOS agent,

As they try to neutralize the bomb that they think is in the tower, they are attacked by a group of knife-and-gun-wielding attackers. When Katsuki discovers where the bomb is located, the three of them fight through the crowd, and Hashiba manages to defuse the bomb with a powered up ninja star.

Task forces' job isn't over, as Ryuichi Takahara (Ken Matsudaira) discovers when he is briefed by Prime Minister Naoto Kaizaki (Min Tanaka): Mundo, a terror group, is threatening all 14 million people in Tokyo, and the team of spies has three days to discover who is part of this group and stop their assault.

Which Shows Will It Remind You Of? Both the 60s-70s series and the Tom Cruise films have a strong connection to Mission: Impossible. When Takahara tells his team that if they are caught or killed, the government will not acknowledge their actions, it does so.

Game of Spy is a five-hour action film that stars a large cast, most of whom are either spies or government officials. The dialogue is overt at times, but it's campy at others. The violence is cartoonish, with blood spurts that appear to be CGI.

Is there a plot? Yes. Stop this mystery terrorist group from destroying Tokyo. Is there character development? As the series progresses, you may learn a bit more about the characters, but you only get glimpses via dialogue. For instance, Katsuki meets Hiyama at the airport, tells her that they need her for the new assignment, and asks if she's been hunting since.

Despite its merits, Game of Spy is not a high-flying spy thriller. If you are looking for more, look elsewhere.

In the first episode, there were no sexualities or skin.

A member of the Mundo organization creates a video that announces that the Desus Gate will finally open in a foreign country.

Lauren Tsai is fun to play as Riyama, an American who is a freelance spy and is pretty much the only woman in the group. Is she a great actress? No. But she adds a lot of flair to the action scenes.

Most Pilot-y Line:Riyama says drop me off here after the Skytree job. The only thing is here is in the middle of nowhere.

STREAM IT. Spy is mindless entertainment, which sometimes is all you need in a show.
