If you enjoy the dime-a-dozen political conspiracy thrillers that pop up on CBS every season, then you’ll probably enjoy Netflix’s The Night Agent. Network thrillers are always too broad and undemanding for me, and this one is no different. Sure, there is a convoluted and poorly explained conspiracy mystery, but all you really need to know is that there are bad guys chasing good guys for unknown and mostly unnecessary-to-the-plot reasons. There are car chases, gun fights, hidden hard drives, disgraced FBI agents, corrupt officials, moles, and, of course, twists!…you know, all the typical things. If that’s your thing, it’s fine, I guess.
