Has anyone else seen the series premiere of The Americans on FX?
If you're not familiar with the show, it's about a pair of male and female Russian spies who were trained to be indistinguishable from real Americans then paired up as husband and wife and sent to America to do the dirty work of the KGB.
Only the pilot episode has aired thus far, but I think it is extremely well written with excellent performances. The gritty, hardcore realness of the bad-ass Russian sleeper agents is phenomenal. I really love Cari Russell's character; she's really one tough spy and one hell of an ass-kicker. (Felicity is back and better than ever.)
It's rare that a show portrays such realistically hardcore situations without actually sensationalizing them at all. It's just business as usual, but it's so intense for we the viewers at home.
Anyhow, if you've missed it, go back and see the first episode:
And don't miss the new episodes as they air each Wednesday night at 10pm.
