    I'm glad you asked...

    "The Americans is an American television period drama series created and produced by former CIA officer Joe Weisberg. The series premiered in the United States on January 30, 2013 on the cable network FX and completed its first season on May 1, 2013. The second season premiered on February 26, 2014.

    Set during the Cold War period in the 1980s, The Americans is the story of Elizabeth (Keri Russell) and Philip Jennings (Matthew Rhys), two Soviet KGB officers posing as an American married couple in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. with their unsuspecting children (Holly Taylor and Keidrich Sellati), and their neighbor, Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich), an FBI Counter-Intelligence agent. The series focuses on the personal and professional lives of the Jennings', sometimes incorporating real-life events into the narrative. The show's creator has described the series as being ultimately about a marriage."

    Is it worth watching? The commercials seem compelling during Archer.

    Yeah, you definitely need to start with the first season though. I dig it.

    I'll check it out based upon your recommendation. I'm a professional TV watcher, but even I seem to be having a problem keeping up on all the shows worth watching. Even though there is a ton of shit on the dial, there is also some very high quality programming available like never before.

    I'm glad I have that DVR. That way I can keep up at my leisure. Several shows had their second season premieres this week that I watch.

    Me too. But it is still hard to find the time. My wife's shows are on during the week and I have to rely on the DVR and watch later as she isn't into the shows I like (True Detective, Walking Dead, Shameless, Banshee...etc.). With baseball starting, I'm really going to be pressed. I can't let a Tigers game go by without watching. Game of Thrones is starting soon too.

    A remote control needs to be invented for those.
