The Americans (FX)

I have just seen a couple promos for it. Found this on wiki:
quote:

The Americans is an upcoming American television series which will premiere on January 30, 2013 on the FX network. It is a 1980s Cold War drama. [1] The premise is that a group of Soviet KGB officers have been trained to impersonate native-born Americans, so that each one can become a sleeper agent, with a cover which may even include an unwitting spouse and family.


Sounds like might be good. Have you guys seen or heard anything?

I've thought about this premise. You know there have to be people out there like this, going about their business, waiting for a call that never came. Will any of them ever out themselves, or will they take the secret to their graves?

I'd take the secret to my grave. Why out a fellow agent?

My first thought was it sounded awfully like an episode of Alias, where Jennifer Garner infiltrates a Russian sleeper cell training facility whose purpose was to indoctrinate Russians into impersonating suburban America.

Really? The commercials have only made me think this show will be terrible. I'm going to give it a fair shot though, because the premise sounds very interesting.

I'll say it has piqued my interest because the commercials don't tell you shite about it.

I don't believe it is copying any other show as this was something the Soviets actually did during the Cold War.

Sounds alot like the book Charm School by Nelson DeMille. I highly suggest reading it.

I'm willing to bet that we'll hate the Rooskies at first, then hate that we love them, then love that we hate them.

Just like Game of Thrones.
