dirty: Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a tough, grizzled secret agent who hops across the globe, taking down bad guys and saving the world – all while his suburban family is none the wiser. Yes, this is a plot True liesbut it also Netflix plot fubar, Arnold’s first time as the lead of a TV show (at 75!). Here, he plays 65-year-old Luke Brunner, whose civilian cover is running a small sporting goods store with his ex-wife Tali (Fabiana Audino) when he’s not swaying to punch more terrorists in the face.

But his double life gets a huge reality test when, on his latest mission to stop a South American drug lord (Gabriel Luna), he discovers that his estranged twenty-something daughter Emma (Top Gun: MaverickMonica Barbaro) is also On that mission, it turns out sheHe was a CIA agent this whole time too! Shock!

I remember that!”

At its heart, fubar is a show about a distant father who realizes his daughter is on the same flawed path as he is, and tries to stop her from making the same mistakes. This stuff is rather interesting, and the pair have some strong chemistry when they sit down and talk about how the allure of their sexy secret life can be drawing them away from the people they love the most.

To be fair to the former Mr. Universe, he’s giving as much as he can at his advanced age. His sidekick Luke Brunner is hardly a fat Superman commandos And predator; The show’s modest budget doesn’t very appropriately hide the seams between Arnold and his brooding army. But let’s see You Dive behind chests while firing guns when your golden years hit!
