    A show about a pair of highly trained KGB operatives posing as an American husband and wife in the Washington DC area in the early 80's.

    It's very well done so far. Thoughts?

    I know the show is about soviets, but check my link. The FX logo looks a bit nazi in tone.

    I can see where you're coming from after taking another look.

    That is kind of funny. Certainly the red, white and black combo is a little reminiscent.

    I want to watch this show... not sure if I'll make the time though.

    It looks decent I suppose. Isn't Keri Russel in this?

    Yes, and she's very good in it so far, too.

    Saw the pilot and was intrigued. I don't have a tv, so I can only watch the episodes online for now.

    I'd probably watch it if Keri Russell dressed like Black Widow.

    (Just saying.....)

    Vin, the first time I saw that was in the subway in Philly. I think being underground just makes the whole vibe worse. The poster is a brilliant image, though.

    Just starting watching it On Demand to kill time during the Snowquester. Ok, I am hooked.

    Yup, hooked from the first ep on. I've watched all 5 episodes online and really like what I've seen so far. I'm especially fond of plot threads from early on being mentioned in later episodes and not just conveniently forgotten about in later episodes. I also read that there will be an upcoming episode dealing with the Refuseniks and possibly Mossad which ought to up the ante quite a bit.

    It's a fantastic show.

    I don't think that the Russian girl who works at the embassy and has been tipping off the FBI has long for this world.

    Good episode tonight

    I wonder

    Did the child exist, or was that offer to run away another KGB test of his loyalty?

    I've watched five episodes so far. I'm glad this thread exists, otherwise I would have started it myself :p

    The show is excellent, but I won't deny that getting to look at Matthew Rhys for long periods of time helps its appeal somewhat.

    Finished the season! I have to say I was NOT expecting
    Nina to defect back to the Soviet Union, though I feel pretty good for her

    And I loved the ending where
    Gatt had that middleman guy in questioning and Paige suspects something weird's going on with her mother
