    New Show: The Americans, on FX

    Premiers tonight and saw some highlights.

    It's about a russian spy family who look completely American during end of the cold war years.

    Looks pretty good. Based on FX's track record on dramas I have high expectations.

    It's a remake (I think) but will watch. FX rarely disappoints...

    I actually live next door to Russians who sound and look completely Russian.

    Though I cant figure out how they make a living, I trust them implicitly.

    This show could change all that.

    Will record and watch tomorrow. Have to watch last night's Justified first. Any thoughts on this season so far?

    Love the show...it never disappoints. Raylon is a bad ass. Boyd is great too, but I've been a big Walton Goggins fan since he was on the shield. Justified is in my top 5 favorite show.

    Could watch Justified on a loop all day... Glad Duffy will be a factor this season but is Limehouse coming back this season?

    Hope it comes through.

    This show is based on the spy ring that was broken up a couple years back including the ones in my neighborhood so I'm intrigued.

    Lol yeah every so often it seems like they have to remind you what decade it is. Still, pretty good show. Keri Russell is a badass.

    Show has some nice twists with the first episode.

    Set in the 80's, flashbacks to the 60's and 70's.

    CIA stuff, KGB stuff. What's there not to like?

    Definitely has elements of a Le Carre novel.

    Sooth watching a lot of new TV lately!


    We normally wait to watch shows when they come to Netflix streaming or DVD. My husband refuses to watch shows with commercials, and prefers to watch multiple episodes right in a row.

    So we're still on Season 2 of Justified (great show). But I'll watch out for Americans in six months or so -- definitely sounds interesting, Cold War/KGB.

    Terrible Walking Dead? Walking Dead is the best show on TV right now. Spartacus is a close second.
