Not sure that it'll interfere with anything, but it definitely looks interesting.

I watched it and liked it a lot. Keri Russell's character is interesting as she is the die-hard Russian who will never betray her country, while her husband is always considering defecting to protect his kids and live the American life.

I really really liked that pilot. Ill be watching it every week.

What's Phillips fake job exactly? Why was that lady telling him stuff?

Totally unbelievable that an FBI agent moves in next to Russian spies, but it's going to make for a very interesting show.

Awesome how he was waiting in the garage in the end.

I like it, I was about the same age as the son on the show is in the early 80's when the show takes place. The look is right, it looks like the 80's,

Anyone watching season 2? I never finished season 1.
8.2 on IMDB. Based on that rating it's low on my priority watch list.

This show is okay. I like watching it, but the individual stories are not great. The basis of the show is awesome though. I really like the different perspectives that they have on American events.

I really like the acting from Matthew Rhys, whom I have never seen before. His character is also very interesting too.

I'm going to stick this one out for awhile and see where it goes.

Bald Move podcasters quit this show because the subject matter was so dark and depressing. They didn't have fun talking about it.

I have a friend who watches religiously and swears this is the best show he's ever seen. I was playing a game with him last night, and while we were, he kept having to get up. I asked why and he said he was steaming beets to make Borsch for the finale. This took him like 6 hours.
