Critical reception

On Metacritic, the show holds a rating of 43/100, based on 15 reviews. On Rotten Tomatoes, it has a 28% approval rating based on 18 reviews, with an average rating of 5.8/10. The critics' consensus reads: "Unintentionally hilarious, poorly paced, and overall redundant, Agent X is a secret agent drama that should have remained secret."

The New York Times said in a review of the series "Without the jokey bravado (or high production values) of Strike Back or the charming wonkiness of Warehouse 13, the only claim Agent X has on our attention is Ms. Stone. Even that is tenuous "? while her performance loosens up a bit across the first four episodes, her screen time appears to shrink."

Variety wrote in their review "Possessing some of the flavor of National Treasure, Agent X takes the amusing step of investing the Vice President's office with secret constitutional powers, all for the purpose of concocting a Yankee version of James Bond. And wonder of wonders, it mostly works, at least initially, combining a sense of playfulness with bountiful action and, less successfully, a sweeping conspiracy.

The Wall Street Journal called Agent X an "improbable but high-action thriller." Also saying "This light and fast-moving version of an America-in-peril espionage thriller doesn"?t really deal in moral ambiguity and shades of gray."
