Keri Russell was pretty good in one of the Mission Impossible movies before she got killed off. She's cute, but that mane of hair...oooh lala!!!

I though it was very good, and yes Felicity has grown up quite nicely.

Any father with a teenage daughter, watch it through the entire episode. Even if you don't like it, I'm sure you'll find one subplot satisfying. ;)

I was anticipating the series, but ditched it 20 minutes into the pilot. Too trashy for my house. Most films I rent are rated R, but sleazy tv shows that intentionally push the envelope to be edgy, I find particularly nauseating.

Meh.

Not really interested in a series that glorifies commies in the USA.

This is the FX Modus Operandi: Show some raciness in the first 15 min to hook the audience. They do it on every new 10pm series now.

They didn't invent it. It came from. . . . NYPD Blue 20 years ago.

We're not talking about Martin Sheen starring in the "West Wing" ;)

I get the feeling that I've seen that plot before in a movie?...:headscratch:

Government agent moves in next door to the spies he's looking for?

Looks promising, too early to tell if it has Sons of Anarchy potential. We'll be tuning in next week.

Watching with interest.

Cannot get enough of Kerri Russell.

Potential to join Breaking bad, SoA, Justified. And some others.

Heros who are vilains. The double life. Bryan Cranston could have been the husband. Though its working now just as it is. Soundtrack is excellent.

Yeah. Is it Sons of Anarchy or that odd ghost one? Heck, I'll take a Justified!

Keri is a hottie, the show will be worth it just to see her.

OK, I gotta ask. . . . . .

There were multiple NUDITY warnings at the end of every commercial break. Did I miss it or something??? You see more skin on MTV than what I watched last night.

I can't see this going more than one season. Only b/c it could get old pretty quick. It looks like the FBI guy is already on to them by next episode based on the commercials.

But I'm enjoying it.

Exactly and yet I don't know why. She just has that look.
The previews for the movie she is in look decent too.

Grrr.... Tonight they messed up on a gun!!! The Beretta in the briefcase was a 92F, I think. Not available in 1981. C'mon, creators!!! Details count!!!

I swear if some dude pulls a Glock in this show, I'm done with it!!!

You know that TV is make-believe, right? Also, we know how it ends. The Soviets lose. I think it's probably safe to watch.

I love it. Lots of hard decisions and it is nice that the husband really struggles with them while the wife is the hardcore commie loyalist. Everytime I expect a crack in her armor she toughens up and gets the job done.

I think she is actually a double agent working with the CIA, which is why she doesn't want the husband to defect. And that is why the FBI agent next door doesn't know who they are. I bet the whole Star Wars Defense Initiative sub-plot is going to tie into this. Seems too conveinent that they just happen to have a guy want to sell them the plans.

This is already better than Homeland, which was plodding as hell and full of much worse "spycraft". It is on par with season one of "Sleeper Cell" IMHO. I love the early 80's tech, no super miniaturized wonder gadgets for these guys. Their radios take up the whole trunk :P

Rumor is - next episode - Reagan gets shot! :wow::wow:






Beretta 92 was invented in 72.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beretta_92

I'm sure there some sort of difference between the 92 and FS, but I'm not sure I'd be able to tell.

The recurve trigger guard was the give-away. These came out in 1984.....I think.

Up to Episode 3.
I've watched and recorded for my wife, if I can get her to start watching it.

It took a couple of years to get her into "24", "The Shield" and "The Spranos"!

She saw "Californication" for the first time tonight!:rofl:

I can't get her to watch "Justified" or "Dexter" so there may not be any hope for her.:dunno:

She will watch "The Following" but we have torecord it wand watch it during the day!
