'Agent X' Series Finale Preview: Will John Go Too Far?
The finale of TNT's Agent X is upon us, with two back-to-back episodes that will not only end the season, but the series (as the network elected earlier this season not to pick up a second cycle). With that in mind, what are we supposed to expect from the evening's action?

'Agent X' Preview: Angels, Demons And Russian Nemeses
After soundly getting thrashed during last week's nail-biting episode, this week Agent X is getting a vacation. Well, not the kind he deserves. "Angels & Demons" ships the still recovering John Case (Jeff Hephner) to the private island of a reclusive and quirky billionaire, with the goal of recovering a dangerous high-tech weapon known only by its codename, Geryon.

Fans will remember that when John had to locate a cache of nuclear weapons (in "The Enemy of My Enemy") it didn't go well, and this time things go worse. First of all, said quirky billionaire likes dressing up in costume and get...
