Chaos is a new comedy-drama from CBS that has a real old-school feel to it starting right from the very beginning with a montage of clips from the Cold War-era CIA. The rest of the pilot really does play like an old fashioned spy series with a mix of comedy and shoot 'em up action. The show centers on the Clandestine Administration and Oversight Services (CAOS) unit of the CIA and newbie Rick Martinez (Freddy Rodriguez) who is planted there by the CIA Director (Kurtwood Smith) as a mole to find out if they are doing their job well and effectively with so many budget cuts coming. Of course, the CAOS division is smarter than that and immediately blackmails Martinez so he will be on their side.
