The Americans

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2149175/

Quote:
"The Americans," FX's new 1980s-set spy drama starring Keri Russell, will debut in January.

Beginning January 30, "The Americans" will join the FX lineup in the Wednesday 10 p.m. EST timeslot, which is currently occupied by "American Horror Story: Asylum."

"The Americans" follows two married KGB spies posing as Americans in the suburbs of Washington, DC. Matthew Rhys and Russell star as Philip and Elizabeth Jennings, the married spies and parents of two. Things get more complicated when Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich), an FBI agent, moves in next door. Joe Weisberg created the series and will executive produce the drama alongside Joel Fields and Graham Yost.

See pictures from "The Americans" below.
Premieres on January 30th. Is anybody else going to watch this? This definitely looks interesting.

I'm going to give it a sample.

It's been advertised two different ways. Politico-Drama-Quasi action and Politico-RomanticoEDGYSMUTTY.

I'm not a fan of smut type **** that they try and masquerade with a non-smut story line. If it's a more intellectual based show, I'll be all over it. If it's "oh, you are a wife and...a spy? okay let's have a sex scene", I'm out.

Oh I am completely with you. That's one of the reasons why I started to dislike Homeland a little bit because of the whole Carrie & Brody relationship. But let's hope that this is a good one. The plot certainly seems interesting.

I'm tempted to start it, so that means I probably will.

Looking forward to this. Previews look pretty good, and seems most of my favorite shows are all on FX.

Liked it. That FBI agent isn't making it through the season me thinks.

I hope they keep up with this kind of violence and not back down.

It will be interesting what they do with Keri Russel character. She seems to be being set up as well a "slapper" in how she gets her job done. So far they have mostly given a view of what Matthew Ryse does his job. I know from reading a few non-fiction books on the actual Russian Sleep cells in America that operated from about 76 to 90, that the females used all their "abilities" to gather information. Russel has a pretty clean image and it will be curious to know how far she will push what she will do on TV

For those who are curious about why john Boy aka Richard Thomas seems a little stiff. He suffers from a hearing problems and so he maybe reading off of que cards or has an ear peace in place

I watched the pilot from On Demand, if that helps at all.

Agreed, nothing worse than some phony smut where it doesn't belong. If I want smut, I'll go straight to the real thing.
