    I love spy stuff! I haven’t watched this yet but I am going to find it on-line right now. These guys fascinate me; check out the Hanson (Robert, I think) story too. He was the FBI agent that was a spy.

      It premiers tonight. Hope you didn’t listen yet, it posted too early, damn auto post!

        Lol, I will try and watch it “real time” and I may have to multi task through it after your review.

          The 2nd episode gets better.

    First episode good, but too similar to The Americans on FX! I definitely need to watch a couple more episodes before giving a thumbs up, or a thumbs down!

      I haven’t watched The Americans, guess I should get on that.

        It was seriously one of the best shows last year. Kerry Russell was a revelation! I think you would really like it!

          I’ll have to see if I can find it on netflix.

          • julyol1972

            Yes, I think they have it! Please let me know if you like!
