Critic Reviews

  1. 60
    The show stumbles at maintaining a breezy tone and a professional sheen.
  2. 60
    Entertaining, stylish, and, most of all, slight.
  3. It wants to be a smart-aleck comedy/thriller hybrid in the spirit of Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen, but the jokes are rarely clever enough and the thrills rarely exciting enough.
  4. 40
    The pilot is neither thrilling nor funny enough to earn notice.
  5. The series is not great television by any means, but it has a kind of breezy charm and sly wit that make it one of this summer's better new shows.

    Pretty entertaining. Exceptionally wooden acting, a few issues with realism, and especially continuity.
    These "agents" seem to forget what they did before, and handle themselves as idiots, in situations where they previously excelled.
