Loved the pilot. Some really good acting for a change. The FBI neighbor is also a great actor.

Just caught up last night. Damn solid show. Keri Russell is so hot in that opening scene and I love that she's the aggressive, loyal agent and the guy is the pussy.

This one leaped ahead of The Following in my book. Not that it's bad but FX just opens you up for so much more.

Thanks bud.

I don't know if you watch Arrow but Lincoln Lee was the big bad on there last week. He hammed it up a good bit, kind of Jokery, but it was funny seeing him so opposite of his calm, cool and collected Fringe character.

Not his resolve, but her resolve. Shes the 1 that was freaking out because he was talking about switching over and all that but she wasnt having any of that. The guy that raped her said that the high command let them have their way with the cadets and it was a perk. That would of been all I needed to hear to make me switch over.


First of all you need to understand the Eastern European mindset of the time. All Soviet citizens had been beaten down and forced to submit for years. I assure you that while the event was traumatic it would liekely not be enough to turn one against the homeland. These people were indoctrinated from birth. The husband also killed the colonel out of jealosy when he realized what he had done to his wife. It was a crime of passion.

And i know i mean im rooting for the KGB guy i hate it haha. I think they will switch over sooner or later.


The day they switch over the show will be doomed as it will ruin how unique it is.

Why would FBI guy have any reason to suspect them? Kinda unbelievable.


Because he's counter intel in the FBI. Suspect everyone.

I agree. I think the FBI guy is going to be a gem in this show.

Love that this an 80s themed show. So much promise.

Yeah that and his wife was just fricking with him about suspecting everyone of something a few minutes before that plus the Reagan issuing the order to go after sleeper agents kind of set that up.

I don't get why people think it was unbelievable he suspected.

1. he was a highly trained counter intelligence agent. one can assume he is highly skilled in reading people.

2. upon their first meeting anyone not trained could've seen that phillip (keri Russell's husband) was acting very uneasy once he said what his job was.

3. the high profile case they are currently following is fresh in all their minds and the car in the garage fits the exact description except for the plates. which is why he checked the plates so adamantly.

4. when he asked for jumper cables it was obvious phillip was very anxious when he was near the trunk.

add all these things up and even someone not trained would've at least picked up a little uneasiness

Notice how quickly the FBI guy noticed the two band aids on him.

The dude is a hawk. If Hank from Breaking Bad was this sharp Walter White would already be in the fed pen.
