Basic info and plot
Agent X is a new American action drama TV series that premiered on TNT on November 8, 2015. It was created by William Blake Herron, executive produced by Armyan Bernstein, Sharon Stone and William Blake Herron and produced by TNT Originals and Beacon Pictures.
Natalie Maccabee (Sharon Stone) is a newly elected United States Vice President, who finds out that among the other powers and responsibilities bestowed on her, she now has control over a clandestine special agent. Agent X, John Case (Jeff Hephner), an American-style James Bond is to assist the Vice President in protecting the country in difficult times, as he steps in when no one else – neither CIA, FBI or other government agencies – officially can. Action-packed, but perhaps all-too-familiar, the series is still of a certain entertainment value and hilarious at times. Sharon Stone is delightful in her role, and Agent X`s dry humor has already attracted a fan following.
The series did pick up from what seemed like a rather unenthusiastically received premiere, but it`s still under fire from critics and viewers alike. Perhaps it`s too early to judge the first season as a whole, since at this point, averaging half a million viewers per episode, it`s neither a failure nor a hit for the network. There`s still a possibility that Elementary might develop into something more interesting with time, so let`s give this espionage thriller a chance. Will the new James Bond manage to win the hearts of the viewers or critics?
Updated December 17, 2015: TNT`s Agent X starring Sharon Stone is canceled after just one season on the grounds of low ratings. The series averaged just about 1.7 million viewers over the freshman season which is about to end on December 27, 2015. The critical reviews didn`t offer much support for the series, which was deemed too banal in both its premise and implementation. Even Sharon`s talented performance didn`t save the day for Agent X, which actually hauled in better ratings than the other two canceled TNT shows, Public Morals and Legends, but still didn`t quite reach the ratings mark that would have kept It on the air.
