The Americans (***SPOILERS***)

Let's discuss in here Comrades!

I thought it looked pretty good, and I was right. At first I thought in Elizabeth's flashback that she was raped by Phillip (her current husband); the guy kind of looked like him. Then it was cleared up a second later. That would have made it a fuck load more interesting, but it was still cool how they went about it.

Edit: FRIDAY MARCH 1ST AT 10 PM THERE WILL BE A MARATHON if you want to catch up.

Re: The Americans (***SPOILERS***)

Heh, I thought it was Phillip who raped her too at first. Glad I was wrong. The show would be a lot darker that way, but that's not a bad thing. I like a more sympathetic Phillip.

It's still plenty dark though. Pilot was outstanding. I'm hooked for now.

Keri Russell surprised me and Matthew Rhys, who I've never seen before, was crazy good.

Oh and the Russian general calling Reagan a madman got a lol out of me.

or when they're sitting around the table for breakfast and the kid is talking about the first man in space and Elizabeth says "not as impressive as just getting there first!" :

I thought Rhys looked goofy as fuck, I was bored with the pilot tbh.

Re: The Americans (***SPOILERS***)

To be honest, the pilot didn't really grab my attention, I think I got up to the ice cream scene, and blanked out. Didn't help that "Dark Matters: Twisted But True" was on the same time.

Willing to give it another shot if though.

I agree with the pilot being a little.... blah. But Keri Russell still looks good, haven't seen her since MI:2. And of course Noah Emmerich (?) is the FBI agent, dude is always a cop in all his movies and shows.
