The Americans

It's just finished its 2nd series and seems to have been missed as it was on late night on ITV and it really was rather brilliant.

Anyone a fan?

We've watched both series avidly.

PVRs are wonderful things for late night programs :)

The scheduling of this show was chronic.

I saw part of an episode mid season. It looked pretty good, but I'd have to watch it from the start. I think I've already missed too much already, maybe I'll binge watch someday.

I just love characters that are morally ambiguous , the Russians (Americans) clearly love their children and country. They have moral concerns about everything they do but are also ruthless murders and manipulators. Same with the American Americans in it many of whom are deeply flawed and defend their country doing appalling things.

Have it to admit the season 2 finale felt a bit 'unrealistic and rushed

I just watched the first episode and was very distracted by the fact that the husband looks EXACTLY like the fella from scrubs. That's basically all I took away from it. That and how the KGB defector didn't age a day in the previous 20 years.
