The Americans

I was very pleasantly surprised. The show will live or die by the relationship between the wife and husband KGB sleeper agents. As of episode 1, that relationship is complex and compelling. Shorter review: Keri Russell puts the cold in cold war, but manages to be hot at the same time. I can't imagine they can sustain the contrivances of the plot for very long, but then again, I would have said the same about Breaking Bad...

  1. I was considering watching this show, but I'm hesitant to watch anything on FX. My apprehension is mostly the result of watching too much Nip/Tuck which was a show I never really enjoyed, but continued to watch anyways.
