Out on parole, former drug kingpin Ferry Bouman is forced to partner up with the police for a sting on the Turkish family that is now controlling most of the controlled substance in town. Trouble is, he has to play along with former cop Bob Lemmens, the man who got Ferry thrown in jail. It is surprising that even after three seasons and a prequel movie for one character, Undercover remains relatively underrated and is not high up on recommendation lists. Undercover is a crime thriller about undercover police operations. Bob Lemmens (Tom Waes) is the focus of the show, who after the events of season two is no longer a cop and is actually being sued by the department for his actions while on the job. When a young undercover agent embedded in a Turkish drug mob is busted and killed, the department enlists Bob’s help to bring them to task. The operation, though, is off-the-books, with a veiled promise thrown in that Bob’s troubles with the department may just end if he comes through. He’s unwilling at first, given that he’s got a semblance of a family life back on track and doesn’t want to jeopardise it, but he’s also strapped for cash and his legal bills are not helping his cause. Undercover: Season 3 is a gripping watch from start-to-finish. More than the crime, it’s about the characters that make it happen.
