Think of the Netflix Series The Night Agent as a restaurant. The restaurant is not pretentious, serves one of your favorite meals, accompanied with side dishes that are prepared exactly to your liking. In some ways what is about to be consumed is comfort food, fully satiating your appetite, and satisfaction will be high. The Night Agent is a not a weak derivative work. The foundation of the storyline and character types is time time tested to be a winner with viewers. The quality of the actor’s performances – in almost every role – insures success.
If you enjoy the early film versions of works by Tom Clancy or Robert Ludlum made for the Big Screen, The Night Agent is for you.
