To start with, this isn't Night Raid 1931. No magic, pseudo-prophecy, etc. First episode is pure spy stuff. 'Tradecraft' is the word used in the suspense version of spy fiction (think John Le Carre). Not a lot of opportunity for action, but it doesn't look like it will go into Jason Bourne action under the guise of being a 'spy.'
Sadly, our main character looks to be a stick-in-the-mud
