The Americans premiered on FX last night, and honestly, I really liked it. The Cold War setting is subtle but effective, and kudos to whoever cast Keri Russell in this gritty role, so unlike how viewers are used to seeing her. And in general, I hate being scared but during the last five minutes of the show, I was petrified, in the best way possible. This seems like a show that will either quickly develop a cult following or be cancelled after three episodes. Let's see what happens.
