Storyline

After her inauguration, newly elected Vice President Natalie Maccabee is initiated into a covert world of danger by her chief steward, Malcolm Millar and Chief Justice Caleb Thorne. Contrary to what the public believes, the job of Vice President is far from ceremonial. In fact, enshrined in a secret version of the Constitution is a section endowing Natalie with her own secret agent, John Case, to be deployed in times of crisis. Natalie quickly finds herself in play when the daughter of FBI Director Stanton is kidnapped, and authorities are helpless in rescuing her.

Trivia

Agent X mentions the "suicide of the Argentinian Prime Minister" (incorrectly, as Argentina has a President, not a Prime Minister). In February 2015, federal prosecutor Alberto Nisman was found dead at his home in Buenos Aires. It is unknown if the death was a suicide, a forced suicide, or a murder. See more »

Goofs

At the hotel in the beginning the bald man in the robe is clearly shot in his left shoulder. The blood can still be seen on his left but as the fight transitions to the balcony the blood is now on his right side. See more »

An awful waste of time
12 November 2015 | by Miles-10See all my reviews

First of all: The poster for this show is ugly. Secondly: If I watch too many shows where the hero is an undercover gunslinger of some kind, then this series is definitely the one too many. Thirdly, I paid to watch this tripe, and that is especially galling.

The only bright spot is Gerald McRaney. He's good as Malcolm, the Alfred to Mark Hephner's Batman--or is it Sharon Stone's Batwoman (I know, it's "Batgirl" in the comics)? You see, Hephner plays the titular Agent X and Sharon Stone plays the Vice-president of the United States, but they each are really some variation on Batman. In any case, the show's premise is that the vice-president's residence has a Batcave behind the wall of the living room where the vice-president is secretly empowered to conduct covert operations. (Malcolm: Didn't you ever wonder why the vice-president has so little to do?) Hephner plays John Case, the veep's very own covert agent. (The vice-president has to run covert operations with only one agent?) Stone and McRaney's characters stay in the Batcave and monitor Hephner via a body camera. No doubt they will have their episodes where they get out from behind the console, but Hep is the action hero for the most part.

Thinking about the impossibilities of the back-story here--similar to the ludicrous back-story of the "National Treasure" movie franchise--could drive anyone nuts, but I have to say this about all of the stories of this type, including many of the conspiracy theories laid out in the History Channel's "documentaries": In all of them, there have always been too many people who knew about the secret for it to be remotely plausible; or as Ben Franklin said, "Three can keep a secret if two are dead." James Earl Jones--in a thankless role as the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court--plays one of the few characters who knows about the veep's secret role. The secret is supposedly enshrined in a secret section of the Constitution of the United States. Do other justices know about it? Did everyone who signed the Constitution--including the aforementioned Franklin--know about it? Wouldn't it have been leaked to the many prominent politicians and jurists who initially opposed ratification of the Constitution? How could it be legal if the states that voted to ratify the Constitution did not see this clause in the document they ratified? It obviously does not bear to ask such questions.

Honorable mention goes to Kyle Secor--or would it be a greater honor not to mention him? He plays the Veep's husband who was killed in a car accident before she became vice-president. We see him in a flashback, sufficiently obscured so that I might not have recognized him were he not credited in the cast. If he is lucky, he will have nothing further to do with this turkey.
