So I hear about Agent X a couple of years back, the same time as The Player (Wesley Snipes and Philip Winchester), Limitless and Intelligence (Marge Helgenberger and Josh Holloway). All four shows have a few things in common, they had an interesting premise that I found interesting and they all lasted only 1 season. Where Agent X differs from the other three, it never aired in Australia.
I had seen Agent X promos on YouTube and it seemed like an interesting variation on the President's Man films starring Chuck Norris. With Agent X being the Vice-President's man. As pointed out in the episode the founding father's gave the Vice-President almost no duties to free him or her up to run this agent. I presume that the Vice-President has access to all the same briefings as the President and is able to discreetly send one agent to resolve threats to America.
So I found the pilot on line and I quite enjoyed it. Littered with familiar faces: Jamie Sheridan (Arrow), Sharon Stone (Catwoman, King Solomon's Mines) Mike Colter (Luke Cage), John Shea (Lois and Clark, Mutant X) and Gerald McRainey (The A-Team movie, Simon & Simon).
The premise isn't the most original but the use of a Vice-President was an idea I hadn't seen before. I presume that as the series progresses we find out more about John Case.
