The Americans

Admittedly, it’s tough to come here to talk about TV today but I feel that it is our duty to give people a place to go to get away from the horrific news of today.  There are plenty of places you can go to get that news if you want it.  You can come here to get away from the darkness, if only for a brief time.



The Americans is a new drama that will be premiering on the FX Network on January 30.  Set during the Reagan era, it is a cold-war spy drama starring Kerri Russell, Matthew Rhys, and Noah Emmerich.

It will be interesting to see what a cold-war spy show is done like, especially since the wall has been down for almost 24 years which means that a large chunk of TV’s target demographic doesn’t even know about the cold war.  There is a large group of American society that doesn’t know the Russians as anything other than producers of vodka and internet porn.

Here are a couple of teasers for the show:


I am going to give this show a chance because I am a huge fan of the FX Network.  They have done a great job with putting good shows on TV so I’ll be checking this one out.  The Americans premiers on the FX Network on January 30.
