For those not in the know, this show was about a pair of “married” Russian spies living and working in America in the 1980s. I wouldn’t have guessed I would like the show so much, but I was hooked from episode 1.

I finished watching this series last night and I have to say, it was on par with “Breaking Bad”. Every episode was excellent. Much like “Breaking Bad”, they had their story to tell and told it. While I’m sure they could have dragged things out for a bunch more seasons, they chose not to (take note, “The Walking Dead”). The whole show was like watching a chess match, but with way more bloodshed.

The finale was pretty good, too. It wrapped up most of the storylines, but left some stuff to ponder.

My rating: 5/5
