I have seen ads for this show that is about to premiere on FX called “The Americans“.
It’s obvious from the commercials that at least part of the show is about spies from the Soviet Union that are living and working in the USA during the 80′s.
Jonah Goldberg over at National Review On-Line spotted an article in The Hollywood Reporter where the executive producer of the new series says he wants viewers to root for members of the KGB…you know the folks who swore they would “bury us”. The same person also laments that we can’t make a similar show about al-Qaeda. What simple minded dolts we are. SMH.
Goldberg goes on to say…
Yeah, it’s awful that we haven’t come far enough as a country where a TV show that champions al-Qaeda can be made today. But at least we’ve come far enough along where we can have a TV show celebrate a country that murdered tens of millions and enslaved whole nations
Where’s Tail Gunner Joe when you need him?
By the way is there any Who song left that hasn’t been used on a TV show yet?
