The Americans is good—the pilot, at least. The bookend scenes both really bow to the altar of “Tusk” which I have always been a firm, staunch supporter of. There is no greater friend to the United States than “Tusk” by Fleetwood Mac.
Lastly, 80s-chic style that’s almost 60s-retro if 60s-retro existed in the 80s when they were making out in cars to “In the Air Tonight” (used well, and not ironically). So watch The Americans. It’s going to out Homeland Homeland.
