The Americans on FX

Just saw a promo, but haven't heard anything about it.

From the promo, it looks like there are some Russian spies living in America and are trying to keep their covers intact.

Looks pretty decent. What's everyones thoughts on this?

I'm kinda excited.

hence the dilemma

She did when she got raped. They were trying to get her to use English.

I remember her having the accent, but not speaking Russian after being pinned down in the "field combat" exercise.

I believe she said "Nien". I don't know. Sounded good enough to be believable to me.

Another good episode but I thought they 'warmed' Elizabeth entirely too quickly.

2 days ago she was willing to roast her family on a spit for Mother Russia. Now she's being criticizing mission objectives and getting all giggly while piercing her daughters ears at midnight.

Wait....I forgot. It's a woman we're talking about here. Since when did their emotions run evenly for more than 15 minutes straight?

Retracted. FX hit the nail on the head.

I think they did a decent enough job of making the event of smoking off of that dude that raped her a kind of turning point, at least a point of reflection. And the smoking off of that dude that raped her provided some closure on getting raped and all the trauma associated.

I can empathize with her position. The draw between country and children is tough. Being married for 20 years to someone you know nothing about and your commie bastard government told you to marry is tough. The whole identity crisis is very interesting to me. Bottom line, I'm OK with Keri Russell's character.

On the whole, I'm really impressed with it so far. There is a little bit of nostalgia going on, and the workings WITHOUT technology is interesting. The characters are interesting. I'm all in.

I wonder if we developed a spy program anywhere close to what the Russians were pulling off back in the day.

I would think that it would be a shitty assignment. Russians get to come here for most of their adult life, getting sent in the other direction would be a nightmare.

That's easily my favorite part. They're doing a spy show without all the spy gadgets. They're doing it at the ground level with the nasty, garote wire kinds of shit that actually happened. Seeing them do a spy show with technology that's 30 years old is really fascinating.

And it has some quick lines here and there that I think are just brilliant. "You and God have had a misunderstanding" was blood chilling and for some reason "Anyway...I took his caviar" and the delivery of it just cracked me up.

Yeah, we did. It's pretty staggering how much better we were than the Russians at almost everything. I read a story once that kinda combined both our spy network and our technology. The Russians were running subs off our coasts and thinking they were all discreet about it. We had a person inside that had intercepted the positions of the entire Soviet submarine fleet. So we put attack subs behind each one of them within sonar range.

Then popped them all with a single active ping at the same time.

They had to have absolutely shit themselves. Not only did we know where they were, but our subs were so much quieter than theirs that we were able to park right behind them without them having the foggiest idea. We essentially just told them that we could've sunk every active submarine they had right then and there.

When the USSR fell and we got more of a presence in Russia, we learned that most of the 'big bad boogeyman' in Russia was a myth. Credit to them - they had us convinced with little more than bluffs and bravado. We'd have flattened the USSR in months.

I agree. There is a lot of opportunity to **** it all up, but it is a must see for me until they do. It's got me all wound up. DJ's Left Nut explained much more articulately than I can.

My DVR only recorded 8 minutes of episode 2.

They have been rebroadcasting all of the episodes EXCEPT THAT ONE!!!

But anyway, there has been a few shows that my wife and I started getting into only to see them cancelled. I'm tired of that shit. I have taken to DVRing new shows of intrigue and not watching them until I make sure they are hits. My external hard disc allows me to do that.

That said, the recorded Americans episodes that I have collected all have weird lengths, like 1:09 or 1:12 etc. What gives? Isn't this a one hour show?
