LogoFX The Americans

Critics are praising this and I'm reading a lot of good things. Premieres tonight on FX at 10/9c.

First episode was exceptional. This is going to be a big hit.

Finally caught the first episode. Loved it, intriguing storytelling. Interested to see where it goes next. Keri Russell is actually great at her role.

The acting is very good and I like the FBI agent next door. I wondered how they were going to get us to like the enemy but they wisely made the guy somebody who started to like America, and then the Russell character got sympathy for what happened to her. As long as they don't kill any Americans it could work. If they do that, though, I think they'll lose the viewers.

Ya, I mean they have to somehow still appeal to American pride and patriotism. But you're right. Making the "husband" like America is great. When he sang part of the National Anthem with his son, I thought that scene was pretty powerful and very well done. The FBI agent might get on my nerves, but we'll see.

Wasn't too wild and crazy with the 2nd episode, but I was distracted while watching it. However, this latest episode - EXCELLENT. I am loving Keri Russel more and more. And then you give me Margo Martindale?! Awesome!

Well, damn. I didn't want them to kill the wife.

Wow, this past episode was great. And yes - now I'm not so much on the side of the spies. But I am loving this dichotomy.

Ok, now I'm finally feeling for the FBI agent and the spies are annoying me. This past episodes ending was incredible. Are YD and I the only two watching this?
