I'm really afraid that the last episode of The Agency was broadcast tonight. I will miss this show. Yes, the storylines were good and contained just enough suspense and humor, but the real strength of this show was the character development. As I'm a veteran government bureaucrat, it was such a treat to watch The Agency. Unlike in so many Hollywood action shows, the characters here were not superhuman. You could easily picture Jackson Haisley at a Sat AM kids soccer match, Lex & Stiles watching a Skins game at the sports bar, Terri & Joshua doing some lunchtime shopping at Tyson's Corners or Georgetown, or Carl at Kennedy Center. Even the satanic Robert Quinn was just a guy trying to do the best job he could for his country. And who wouldn't want to have a boss like ex-Senator Gage. That collection of characters and the actors who portrayed them would have fit well into scores of offices around the beltway. Stiles was borderline at first, but even he became real. Not supermodels, not superbeings. Just normal folks. They and the show will be missed. Please smarten up, CBS!
