Is It Any Good?

Though it aims for big-screen intensity and even boasts some big-name stars, this slightly silly National Treasure/James Bond mash-up never feels like more than small-time entertainment. But 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. The question is, how aware is Agent X of its own absurdity? Because, for the most part, it doesn't seem like it wants to be taken seriously.

You might assume Agent X has comic-book roots (much like Marvel's Agent Carter), but you'd be wrong; it's an original story, and the titular character has nothing to do with the Marvel mercenary of the same name. Still, the tone here is so often comic (in spite of the show's otherwise serious subject matter) that it's not hard to imagine these characters hamming their way through a hand-drawn serial, a realm where some of the show's more laughable one-liners would make a lot more sense.
