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.

Loving this show. Great stuff.

Interesting twist to the story to introduce Gregory into the equation.

Honestly, I was just shocked the baby lived.

Gotta love watching skinny Phil continue to kick the shit out of people.

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.

Interesting. I need to check out the show.

But do you really think that it would have been that easy? Months?

It was Stalin, after all, who pretty much took on Germany in WWII.

Yes, the USSR was collapsing for a long time. They were a paper tiger.

I can thank this show for opening my eyes to the biggest personal mondegreen of my life.

I had always thought that the 'Air Tonight' lyrics were 'I can feel it coming in the air tonight hold on'

Never once occurred to me that it was 'oh Lord'

I loved this episode. The whole Reagan getting shot, brink of total war, brilliantly executed. And it did a fantastic job of working in the plot functions they were pushing. It is absolutely fascinating. I love it. I literally can't wait until the next episode.

I liked how Phil found his balls when she jumped the gun and basically saved the world from diving into WWIII!!

FX Renews ‘The Americans’ For 2nd Season

Just four weeks into its first season, FX’s Cold War drama The Americans has been picked up for a Season 2 with a 13-episode order. “The Americans has quickly established itself as a key part FX’s acclaimed drama line-up,” FX president John Landgraf said in a statement. Debuting on January 30, The Americans stars Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell as two sleeper KGB spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington D.C. in the early Eighties. The show premiered strong with 3.22 million viewers, bettering debuts by fellow FX series Sons of Anarchy and American Horror Story. Ratings for the second week initially saw a steep decline but Live +3 data brought the show’s viewership up to 3.11 million viewers. Former CIA agent and Falling Skies scribe Joe Weisberg created the series and exec produces with Joel Fields, Graham Yost and Amblin TV’s Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank for Fox TV Studios and FX Prods. The first season finale airs May 1.

When the head couple met in the hotel. Keri had a moment where she acted her ass off with her eyes. There were like 15 shifts, all of them more alluring. She really selling the act of falling in love.

Yup. They would build one big, bad flagship for every class they had, be it bomber, gunboat or space shuttle. It would look scary as hell, be about 25% operational and would be the only one of the class even close to functional. They would leak its 'capabilities' and inflate numbers.

Most of the time they would have to mothball their scariest toys anyway. Even stuff like the Kirov class ships, which were scary sonsabitches, never worked right and are pretty much death traps. They only really used one of them for any extended period of time and spent billions on the other 3-4, which were decommissioned within a few years of launch.

The worst thing the Soviet Union could have done was try to keep pace with the US arms buildup through the 80s. They just didn't have the industrial capacity to do it efficiently so it ended up incredibly expensive for them and ultimately completely ineffective.

Reagan probably got a little bit lucky, but his policies throughout the 80s really did spend the USSR into oblivion. By the late 80s, everything they had was crap and they didn't have the financial wherewithal to maintain it. The Russians could've zagged, kept themselves more financially solvent as we were spending more than we had, and bought up US debt and potentially remained a legitimate threat to the United States. Instead they played our game and just weren't prepared to play it.

Yeah, we'd have probably maintained some presence in Russia for years thereafter, but storming and collapsing the Soviet Union wouldn't have taken us more than 6 months, IMO. The only wildcard would've been Chinese intervention, but at that point you have WWIII and who knows how that would've gone?

I don't watch many television dramas, but I think this is my favorite one ever to this point. I wish the casting was a little different for the FBI agent neighbor, but then again his sort of goofy earnestness as a character actor makes it a little more interesting when he decides that he doesn't so much care if he gets a Russian office worker killed. Maybe it's better that he doesn't have that more assertive, authoritative way of carrying himself.

They've done a fantastic job of creating dynamic characters, especially Phil's. And Russel just coolly blasting that security guard (and the look Phil gave her) was just outstanding. And unlike most shows with the complex character development, stuff actually happens in this one.
