What if I told you there was a quality cable drama with the spy element of ‘Homeland,’ the domestic cover up of ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘The Sopranos,’ the character flashbacks of ‘Lost’ and the period detail of ‘Mad Men?’ And it featured Kerri Russel, Matthew Rhys, Noah Emmerich and Margo Martindale? Would you set your DVR right now? Because this show exists, it is called ‘The Americans’ and it has just been renewed for a second season.
There have only been 4 episodes so far. It is not too late. FX is even showing a marathon of all the aired episodes March 1st.
