This has been pretty entertaining so far. It's not super deep, but has some great characters and executes suspense and action well.

Totally agree that Beeman and Nina are going to Get. It. On.

Some pretty great discussions over at Slate about the show. Found this one, posted yesterday, particularly interesting: "What Does a Russian Think of the Show's Depiction of Soviets?"

My DVR didn't pick up the last seven minutes of yesterday's show (which ran until 11:10 EST) due to a programming error. If the same thing happened for anyone else (it seemed to happen to quite a few people), FX issued an apology and placed the episode online at their website.

The ending was incredible.

Finally watched the last half of the season over the weekend and really enjoyed it. Keri Russell is awesome. Also great to see Margo Martindale with another solid role, hope she's back at least a little bit next season.

I think she's got her own show.  I could be wrong though.

Well I figured with her character being sent back she'd probably only be in an episode or two anyways. That sitcom looks real bad.

Anyone watch S2's premiere last night? I'll be watching it sometime later today.

I heard about this show a week or so ago and I really want to catch up with it now. I think it's free on Prime, so I might start watching it that way.
