The Night Agent is a sophisticated, character-based, action-thriller centering on a low-level FBI Agent who works in the basement of the White House, manning a phone that never rings - until the night that it does, propelling him into a fast-moving and dangerous conspiracy that ultimately leads all the way to the Oval Office.

Netflix recently positively surprised me with https://next-episode.net/the-recruit - let's hope this one will be good, too! I like the teaser trailer. smile

Yes I've just watched the trailer and I hope it will be good too.

I hope to be surprised too.
Mind you, I can't help feeling that he could just walk up the stairs to the Oval Office!

Watched 1x1. Solid show! Pretty good story, good budget, good acting. And I am not the only one enjoying it. smile

Re: The Night Agent [Action, Drama, Thriller]

I need to put this one on hold for now. I watched episodes 01&02 and part of 03 before I decided to put it on the shelf. It's not a bad show and does have some entertainment value; but it's really just a new twist on a hundred past spy-secret agency movies. Which would be fine, but I'm not crazy about the acting and the dialogue seems a little predictable and generic. There's no very likable character (for me) and the story struck me pretty low on the "thrill" meter. Perhaps I'll go back to it, but right now I have too many shows to catch up on... smile

I've watched the first 2 episodes and it's OK, as kurschnextepisode has said the plot has been seen before

Re: The Night Agent [Action, Drama, Thriller]

I never mind if a plot has been seen before, as long as the new interpretation is good. smile

And many seem to think so, because it just got renewed! smile

Netflix yesterday gave The Night Agent a quick Season 2 pickup only six days after the action-thriller from creator Shawn Ryan and Sony Pictures TV launched with the third-best premiere week of viewing for a new series — only behind Wednesday and Dahmer — putting the series starring Gabriel Basso on track to potentially land in the Top 5 of Netflix’s all-time most popular series.

Very cool. smile

Re: The Night Agent [Action, Drama, Thriller]

I'm struggling on this one and I can't put my finger on why. It's not particularly slow or dull but I'm only on episode 5 and it feels like i've watched like 15 episodes. The season 2 pickup has me thinking I should maybe just drop it.

Re: The Night Agent [Action, Drama, Thriller]

I've now watched the series and I found it watchable. Hopefully S2 will be better

Re: The Night Agent [Action, Drama, Thriller]

Finished it too now. Not perfect, but totally worth watching IMHO. smile

Re: The Night Agent [Action, Drama, Thriller]

I finished it. It got a bit better but I'm up in the air on whether to keep it for next season.

Spoiler

I don't know that I want to follow the boring lead into his next mission even if it does take him to more exotic locales. The only characters I particularly liked were because I liked the actors from other shows, and nothing to do with their characters here.

Just watched the season.  I enjoyed it.
