Question: What’s your take on the new FX drama The Americans? I’m sort of cautiously optimistic because I love several FX shows, but this one didn’t grab me like Justified and the others have. I thought there was way too much action before I got any sort of character development — it drove me nuts to have to follow the opening sequence for so long without any context.

I hope it improves with more episodes. — Amy
