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

News & Interviews for Agent X: Season 1
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.
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.
