On FX's new drama The Americans, two Russian spies move to the United States, start a family and spy on — you guessed it — America. Welcome to the height of the Cold War, an era when Americans lived in constant fear that the Russians could get the upper hand. The cleverness of The Americans is that the show actually gets you rooting for the bad guys. That's because, deep down, the series is a family drama — this just isn't your conventional family.

I might set the DVR for this!   First off, I don't have anything on the DVR for Wednesday nights so that's no problem.    Secondly, this show intrigues me for some reason.   Anyone else?

I recorded this last night.  At first I wasn't going to watch it but after seeing all of the previews I got more and more intrigued.  I have a lot of stuff I actually record during that time frame on Wed but like American Horror Story I'm sure they will replay it an hour later.  I'm not sure when I will watch it.  I think Ds would like this show since it deals with the Cold War and he is learning about that in school, plus he took European History last year and two years of German.  So maybe I will get to watch it this weekend.
