Stan's wife or the Daughter get jobs working on the Trump campaign?

Of course, she'd need a whole new legend, given that the Jennings name is shot.

Incredible series. Solid ending. I've never met someone else who watched the show and it was one of the smartest and best acted shows in years and years.

Oh and Renee is definitely one of them.

One of my favorites. Have the series finale on the hard drive - maybe tonight.

All 6 seasons on Amazon Prime - just started season 2. I tried to watch the series last year but never got through the pilot. So far so good.

I stopped watching in season 2 or 3. I think a fight scene in which the wife took a bunch of hits from a big guy then beat him up turned me off. No fvcking way she took a pummeling then judo flips the guy....

But, if the consensus is that the show stayed strong, I may have to watch it again.

I loved the show, particularly the cold war tradecraft of both sides.

I enjoyed it, binged watched several seasons after I retired and finished the final season couple months ago. Like Sharky, I enjoyed the Cold War stuff.

Cold War series are great, so much going on back then.

I saw that the series Deutschland 83 is into a second season that is just starting this week, called Deutschland 86. Set 3 years later and closing in on the fall of the wall.

I am wrapping up season 3 and I need to remind myself it is okay to root against the Jennings, considering they are murdering bastard spies. Their daughter is starting to rebel and on the one hand I am like "girl you need to listen to your parents" and then I think "girl you need to run far away."

There was a scene where they're both handcuffed but end up overcoming a former Navy SEAL but yeah whatever, good show so far.

Enjoyed it immensely. Only a few boring episodes. Would like to see a new serie with them back in the USSR. Back in the day I read all the Cold War books I could find.

One of the best and most under appreciated shows in a long, long time.

There isn't a ton of that kind of stuff to distract you, although I am only just wrapping up season 3. There is more trade craft than the stuff that you've described, which seemed unbelievable to be sure.

The dynamic between Stan (FBI) and Oleg (KGB) because of Nina is a cool development in S4 E4.

Just finished the last episode. I like the outs they've put in for a spin-off. Great show.

I would love to see them flip the coin and do a show about our people in Moscow in that same time frame.

Like the kid from Colgate who got rolled up at a wireless dead drop, had his weave stolen and cried on tv?

Hard pass. Thanks.

Yeah, that was embarrassing. I still regret not going to Tony's disguise class when I had the chance though. He probably cried when he saw that wig.

Did you miss the part about me saying "that same time frame"? I'm talking 1970's-1980's Moscow Rules time frame.
