Just finished watching a few minutes ago. Set it to series record when I was half way into the premiere. I'm a spy/espionage/Cold War era junkie, so I'm hooked.

And like Bob said, Kerri Russell is an added bonus. :mwink:

I can feel it coming in the air tonight..

for some reason I always have an image of tom cruise getting it on whenever I hear this song.. though, Tyson pulls it off much better. sigh. I still love you crockett.

Really digging this show.

Set during my formative years, so there's a sense of nostalgia there. Was 12 when Reagan got shot. Liked how the episode tonight showed how that event set both sides running. Will be interesting to see how they work other real-life events into the story.

Also, as stated previously, Keri Russel as a KGB special agent - :17:, please.

I'm surprised how much I'm enjoying this, but it has the looks of a really great show at this point.

The writing, acting, even the attention to detail is all really well done.

I find myself really looking forward to each episode each week.

Ahh good old Phil Collins.

The guy threatened to leave the UK back in 1997 unless we all obediently voted for the political party of his choice...his party lost but he didn't have the balls to emigrate.

Shame, I impersonated over 100,000 people to try and get rid of him that day and he still wouldn't leave.

Hung over all day vegetating. So I decided to catch up on the DVR. Forgot that I had this show recorded. It really is a pretty good show. Haven't heard a lot of people talking about it. Hope it doesn't get cancelled because nobody's watching it. Love the 80's soundtrack too.

I was worried about it being canceled too, but it was given a second season just this week.

Really good news. The show really has a ton of potential, hopefully it can continue on its great pace.
