The Night Agent is a newly released spy thriller series on NBC that is based on the novel of the same name by Matthew Quirk. Set in Washington D.C., the show follows FBI agent Jack Sharpe as he becomes embroiled in a dangerous conspiracy involving corrupt politicians and the President of the United States.
According to a recent review, The Night Agent is praised for its fast-paced and thrilling plot, as well as the strong performances of the cast. The show’s political intrigue and conspiracy elements are noted as particularly relevant in today’s climate. The review also commends the show for its diverse representation of characters, with several women and people of color in prominent roles.
However, the review also mentions some flaws in the show’s execution, particularly in its pacing and character development. The characters are described as somewhat one-dimensional, and the show relies too heavily on twists and turns to keep the audience engaged. Additionally, the review notes that the show’s action scenes can be overly chaotic and difficult to follow at times.
Overall, while The Night Agent may not be a perfect show, it is still an enjoyable and engaging watch for fans of spy thrillers and political dramas.
