re: The Americans 1/30 ***Series Premier****

Really enjoyed the show. Thought both Russel and Rhys did a great job. And the neighbor who works for the FBI. Very promising.

And as far as the neighbor already suspecting them being a little far fetched, he was undercover for a long time for a white supremacists group and hes finally back being a regular person. Hes still a little paranoid, plus the car matched the description. Didnt find it that far fetched. When he saw nothing in the trunk, he realized he was being a paranoid. But, it def sets up a great plot line. KGB spies living next door to a FBI counterintelligence agent. Very suspenseful. 1 screw up and its over.

All in all, really enjoyed it and will be watching this show weekly.

It was a good pilot. The leads have good chemistry.

I agree. Really looking forward to how this show goes forward. I still think there has to be some kind of twist with one of the main characters...We cant cheer for the KGB the entire time can we?

The only problem I really had is that homeboy finding out about KGB captain raping homegirl should have furthered his resolve to switch over, IMO.

Went in very skeptical, because I'm usually not a fan of shows/movies that are set that far in the past (I know its not that far, but you get what I'm saying)


The premiere was the tits... Very solid way to start a series

I thought it was great. It was set up very well. They started you out in the middle of some intense action, then went back and set it up. The acting was really good and I loved the music.

I saw someone post that they were disappointed about the drum break missing from "In The Air Tonight". I too was disappointed. I was ready to do my Mike Tyson in The Hangover air drums impression. Other than that, I was really pleased with the first episode.

He's fallen in love with her and it just strengthened his allegiance to her.

Most shows now are all focused on the 'anti-hero'. I was wondering the other day if there was such a thing as an 'anti-villain'. I couldn't find anything regarding that, so I assumed that there was not such a thing.

Are the main characters in this show anti-villains? I mean, we're supposed to get emotionally attached to them to the point that we want them to succeed, but their success is bad for us. Quite the conundrum.

You might have to pay extra for that part

Enjoyed it a lot and excited for the rest of the season. Also forgot until I saw the previews that Margo Martindale (Mags from Justified) is on the show too.

Are the 2 main characters the villains of the show since they are russian spies?

Thanks for the link. I'm going to read that more in-depth later, but it gave me a little perspective.

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.

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

So yeah, I rewatched the "In the Air Tonight" scene. That song is so badass, I don't care what anyone says! I love it!
