— Margo Martindale on The Americans for all the wins.
From the AV Club’s review of the pilot of FX’s The Americans, which I just watched (four weeks late), and I agree, it was a brilliant opening, and it’s use of “Tusk” was fantastic. With a matched ending, the pilot did it’s job: I now want to watch the rest of this new series.
And hey, guess what, with The Americans picked up for a second season, now is the perfect time to marathon it’s first four episodes!
From Noel Murray’s excellent AV Club review of last nights excellent Justified season four opener.
The next 13 weeks will see a lot of Justified gifs, quotes, and tumblr love here, and I’m sorry (not sorry). It’s a fucking fantastic show with a fucking fantastic lead, set in a world that is so great to be back in, to explore, to visit every week.
There are a lot of really, truly great shows on television (The Good Wife, Homeland, Game of Thrones, The Vampire Diaries, Key & Peele, Parks and Rec, Cougar Town, Southland, Mad Men, Breaking Bad) and Justified is one of them, if not, at times, the best. (Every show listed, at some point, is “the best show on tv” depending on the episode.)
There’s no better time to visit Harlan, Kentucky than right now, folks.
