Anyone else miss the good ol’ days of Americans squaring off with Communists? I mean where’s Rocky beating the crap out of Ivan Drago? Where’s the good feeling of watching Patrick Swayze shout “WOLVERINES!” while blowing up a Soviet tank? Well, we won the Cold War, though it may be a bittersweet victory. Yeah, we don’t have to worry about mutually assured destruction, but we also don’t really have a bad guy anymore. But you can’t keep a good villain down.
This week marked the beginning of a new FX show starring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys called The Americans. Keri and Matthew play Soviet spies implanted in 1980s America. The first episode wasn’t bad, and I recommend checking it out if you have a chance. Above is the trailer, what do you think? Did you watch the first episode?
