    It will be easier now that I mostly know who the characters are. I like that they are flashing back to some background in a pretty smooth way.

    Some of my favorite parts were Phillips "attention" to the pervert and that Phillip was in the garage at the end.

    I mentioned all of your comments and recommended it to a friend as well and he said he really liked this show.

    I thought the second episode was even better than the first. I'm really enjoying the balance between the family life and spy world AND the cat and mouse game between the KGB and the U.S.

    As I said earlier, our TV Critic in the paper, said he was provided with the first 3 episodes & each one was better than the previous.

    I like the story and the actors make me forget they're acting so it gets a big thumbs up from me so far!

    This is the best new show I have seen on TV in a long time!!!! I LOVE this show. I DVR'd the first 2 episodes and just this minute finished watching the first episode. This is really good!! never thought I would watch anything that had me rooting for the KGB agents.

    It's funny you say that because I have no problem rooting for the russian spies, after all, they are just like American spies--doing their job for the country they believe in/love*. I do, however, find it interesting that people are responding to the KGB agents like you--seeing them as humans instead of evil communists here/there to kill us all. Of course, let's make no mistakes here, many communists (and/or spies) have and will kill people (even their own) in the blink of an eye but ALL societies have people like that and the real job here for the show runners is making "enemies" sympathetic...seems like they are doing a bang-up job so far .

    The show is now ON Demand. I have watched the Pilot that was 1 and one-half hour long and the episode called The Clock. What have I missed?
