The Americans

I didn't see this mentioned yet. Did anyone catch this on FX on Wednesday night? I don't want to give anything away, but I think Russian Felicity might end up being pretty cool.

Didn't captivate me, unfortunately. Was looking forward to it but turned it off after she beats the dude up in their garage.

ML, you've gotta roll with the flow.... the Captain had been hog-tied in the trunk for how long? He was in a weakened condition.

I liked it, but am afraid that they'll wind up being the 1980's version of Bruce Willis in Die Hard... needing a transfusion of whole blood just to make it through an episode

So far I'm tentatively liking it.

In the interest of transparency, I also admit to wanting something to take over when Breaking Bad shuts down -- so maybe my optimism is skewed....

I saw an ad on TV the other night. I don't watch too many things on FX, but I'll have to check it out.

Luther and then House of Cards.

Should keep you busy enough.


B2/75, I agree on how. There's just so much that's off. I'll pass for now and maybe revisit on a slow deployment.

I am actually liking this series. Last episode, which centered around Pres. Reagan getting shot, was pretty good.

Sounds like this series follows the theme of the movie SALT.

I don't think so...I really don't watch TV except to have sound in the background. I resent paying 110.00 for news and the Food Channel as it is...so spending more seems pointless! :-)
