The Recruit S1 review: Netflix’s new spy-thriller

The Recruit stands out for its love for gleefully beating up its main character, Owen Hendricks (Noah Centineo).

The only reason the programme sort of succeeds is because to Centineo's unwavering dedication to playing the "poor guy."

He’s essentially a human Wile E. Coyote in a black suit.

Hendricks is a fresh hire in the CIA’s General Counsel division in Langley, Virginia. He’s eager to please his CIA supervisor Walter Nyland.
