Moose and squirrel

Don’t you miss the Cold War?

I didn’t think so either.

fx_americans_keyart_p_2012But then I started watching The Americans on FX.

Have you seen it?

The Americans is set during the Reagan presidency.  Two KGB spies live in Washington D.C., posing as your typical American married couple with two kids.  Their neighbors think they’re travel agents.  Their kids do, too.  But they are really working with a network of spies and informants to further the cause of Mother Russia in the States.

It is so cool.

Only three episodes have aired, and I am totally hooked.  My neighbor Margo Martindale — of Justified fame — popped up last night as a KGB officer.  I mean, come on!  You simply have to watch.

They’ll know if you don’t.
