Agent X: Season 1 (2015)

Season 1
Agent X

Critics Consensus

Unintentionally hilarious, poorly paced, and overall redundant, Agent X is a secret agent drama that should have remained secret.

Critic Reviews for Agent X Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (11)

Agent X isn't the dull affair it could be. With a few injections of much-needed humor, nimble hand-to-hand combat scenes... and a few clever plot twists, the show isn't lazy. It's like a tasty frozen pizza: decent for what it is.

Bursts of violence aside, "Agent X" doesn't work well as an action thriller. And while watching it for comedy, intentional or not, is more enjoyable, that's probably no reason to tune in every week.

The plots take an unexpectedly heavy turn, but its hero keeps playing an average nice guy. Viewers will probably have no idea how to react.

It is breathtakingly inept.

Despite its nicely shot action scenes, Agent X is just more of the same. Unlike Piper Perabo's Covert Affairs, which also had a light touch, there's no attention to character here, just guns and mouths shooting off.

It plays like a spoof, from the absurd premise to the cheap sets and bad acting. What can I say? After bristling at the poor quality, I settled for camp-watching the show, and I had a few Sharknado-like laughs.

Sep 25, 2015 | Full Review…

If you can get past the ridiculous premise, excuse the hokey dialogue, and simply enjoy it for what it is, Agent X is a surprisingly entertaining ride.

Nov 16, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Between the wooden characters, simplistic conflict and the generally low-budget feel, Agent X often plays more like a show from 1995 than 2015.

Nov 11, 2015 | Rating: 5.5/10 | Full Review…

The series boasts an impressive cast but its dramatic narrative is so preposterous and its presentation is so clumsy that it's likely to provoke a laugh-out-loud reaction its creators clearly never sought or expected.

Nov 11, 2015 | Full Review…

I am intrigued about all three of the main characters. I am also loving that John Shea is back on the small screen and portraying the President of the United States.

Audience Reviews for Agent X: Season 1

    Do they get consultants for these shows? Concept of a middle name doesn't exist in Russia. Olga Elena Petrovka??
  • Aug 25, 2016
    Great show, I don't know why all the bad ratings, a must see.
  • Jun 14, 2016
    I think this show was amazing and I'm sad that it got cancelled :/
  • Dec 27, 2015
    The series started off strong, but it got boring after 1/2 of the season. I guess that is why it got cancelled. It lost too many viewers. And of course Sharon Stone can not act at all.
  • Dec 11, 2015
    This one is a real turkey. The writing and direction combine to allow some very significant talent to look like first timers.
  • Dec 06, 2015
    With the stars in it I was expecting much ore. Cliched.
  • Dec 06, 2015
    Very good premise and easy to sell to Network Execs. The show is not bad but could be a lot better. Gerald McRaney does a great job as usual

    4 Stars from me Not having read any reviews, when I first watched the pilot I was more than a bit skeptical about what to expect. Now 3 episodes in, I find myself looking forward to how this will play out for the remainder of the season. I enjoy the cast, and while a few bits of the plot are predictable, it's still entertaining. The fact that I have actually sat and pondered what a nightmare scenario this would have been with little Danny Quayle in charge, /shivers. This is entertainment, not culture, not art. Ignore the critics, give it a shot, you might like it.

    Good concept, poorly produced (including campy writing). If I were a high school student, this is the dialog I would have written; very pretentious. Which is sad because it has great casting and good acting. But you can tell they basically are trying to let it play out without putting in the money to train the actors for the stunts/action sequences, or even bother to give them context when delivering their lines. My view? Fire the Producers, Writers and keep the cast and try again.

    So the Russians are the bad guys yet again?
