“The Night Agent” is the number one trending television show streaming on Netflix.

Released on March 23, 2023, the show has received a great number of praises on social media for the past two weeks.

“The Night Agent” is based on a book with the same name by Matthew Quirk, and brings a fresh perspective to the genre of political drama TV shows. 

Gabriel Basso stars as Peter Sutherland, an FBI agent who is assigned to a special task in the White House in the middle of a conspiracy involving a mole. 

This mystery thriller will take you on a course of twists and turns, all while having you second guessing the integrity of each character. 

The show didn’t really grab my attention until episode two and I had to restart episode one, but I’m glad I stayed for the ride. 

While the show has been renewed for season two already, I’m concerned about the story line the show producers will develop.

I think the show would benefit from being an episodic series rather than a serialized series, similar to “The X-Files.” I also wish they would have taken the sci-fi angle as well, like a cross of “Men in Black” and “The X-Files.”

Overall, it’s a great show, but because of how long it took to gain my attention and the pacing, I rate the show 3.8 out of 5 stars.
