And the author’s way of doing thingsAtlanta Bold, and works perfectly.

This time, the couple is artificially created by an unknown organization, which recruits these two agents through a robot that studies their compatibility, their fingernails, and asks them how many people they have killed in their lives.
Then, they move into a grand typical New York apartment. And in each episode, it is through “chats” over the Internet with human or artificial intelligence that they discover their new mission.
So every episode, a mission for which they don’t know the reasons: follow the owner of the package, get the art collector to talk. A chase and lots of shooting with Mr. and Mrs. Smith not knowing who they work for. But this mission, sometimes parodically treated on screen, is all the way above, as in the film with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, talking about something else: the couple.
Additionally, the episodes are titled respectively First visit, first vacation. And they even end up in the office of a psychiatrist who specializes in couples.
