    Anyone else watching this spy drama set in 1981 during the so called Cold war period?

    I only saw the first episode so far but really think its well done and better than The Following so will drop that show and watch this one. Keri Russell does a good job at breaking away from the Felicity typecast. The show is going to have a tough time though getting you to root for protagonists as they are Soviets and the enemy but they are likable characters. First episode had a lot going on it so excited to see where they take it.

    I've been meaning to watch this since I saw the previews for it. I need to catch up on it tonight.

    Episode 3 is where the storyline really takes off. Very strong episodes 1 & 2, but #3 really blew me away. Great music as well. I want Philip's car!

    This was the best show I watched all year hands down. Great writing and acting and they kept you off guard. Last 4 episodes were incredible especially the last one. The Granny character had the best lines and her scene as the old lady has to be watched. I think the actress name is Margo Martindale, she deserves an emmy for best supporting actress

    did the gays not watch this show. I cannot believe there wasn't more chatter here on this
