    Nobody (including James Earl Jones as the chief justice) plays openly for laughs here, which would spoil an already precarious illusion. Yet amid the high-voltage action, there is banter and always an open invitation to laugh if you want to.

    While Agent X opens on a lighter note, the show begins drifting toward a perhaps too-familiar framework--with a shadowy cabal threatening to upset the established order--in the third and fourth hours, which reflect a qualitative dip compared with the premiere. That said, the action remains solid throughout, and the material is elevated by the casting.

    Writer-creator William Blake Herron (oh, that’s why the veep was reading Blake) pays homage to the great spy thrillers of the 1960s, not to mention the entire James Bond franchise, without really coming close to what they had to keep audiences on the edges of their seats.

    Agent X is a silly, overly earnest espionage drama. [6 Nov 2015, p.57]

    Agent X has very little that's new. It goes pretty much where every spy show has gone before, including the wry mid-1960s dramedy The Wild Wild West. I admit, Agent X offers boatloads of fun. It's a pleasant diversion filled with great eye candy.

    The show doesn’t cover new ground, but it gets a passing grade for being competent within the overly familiar territory of the spy genre.

    Unfortunately Agent X remains an intentional drama, one that is insanely but deliciously bad. Hilariously bad.

It's interesting, there's enough to keep you guessing and I enjoy this type of show. May not be for everyone, but as it makes me look forward to it every week, it gets a perfect 10. Expand

SPOILER ALERT: If Agent X is supposed to be the best spy available in the country then why does he allow his captive terrorist to have an unrecorded conversation with a co-conspirator while locked in a maximum security facility (as happens with former X agent Volker in episode 8?) I tend to watch most television with a suspended view of reality, so this show is still fun, but I won't shed too many tears when/if it is canceled. Expand

    1st scene : (Meaning: main character as nothing to lose)
    - For ever torture cliche
    - The good old Neck Breaking when handcuffed in a cell cliiche!
    - All pointless as he was getting rescued anyways

    2nd Scene (1st mission, agent is indeed super skilled)
    - Double dip the syringe, remind us of it's presence mid fight and use as last resort in a fight (why not use 12 syringe!@#$)
    - Kill a guy, who, non-only resurrect but has wound switching side mid fight (first episode of the show!@#$%^)
    - Etc
    - Etc

    So the question with a cheap-show is what's the cool features that will allow me to look pass the errors and 60IQ reminders.

    Sharron Stone... (gimme a brake, "Robin Wright did it!")
