Now is she the original #Deerhunter or the copycat? And will the copycat be killed?

#TheBlacklist Well that's an honest cop who has to die. Who oh who could do that in this show...Must be pondered..

#TheAmericans Did the Soviet Union plant fake defectors? Should google that...Geez there's a whole Wikipedia entry on "Fake Defection" by both sides...Is Snowden an op?
One of our best hackers inside Russia...what a cover. No. Couldn't be...I won't believe it.

#TheAmericans Okay now why did she kill the husband..to make her more dependent on Elizabeth? Diabolical...

#TheAmericans Well if I had to seduce a 17 year old girl for my country then I'm sure I would do the right thing...
What is that exactly? Oh yeah the mission...
Posted by Philip Shropshire at 10:17 PM
#TheAmericans Yeah you can buy her a dress but can you indoctrinate her into Mother Russia's spy service? No I bet...

#TheAmericans So that's Yaz. I had forgotten. Kind of an Androgynous Synth pop band. I would have gone with JoBoxers "Just Got Lucky"
Nice mix of music and paranoia as Agent Beeman tears apart that restroom...

#TheAmericans Can Philip the fake lobbyist lawyer seduce a girl his own daughter's age? That's creepy.
#TheAmericans Callie Thorne from Burn Notice and Necessary Roughness? She's a good actress..love interest for Stan?
Hey FX is better than USA...

#Allegiance What's with knowing when you're being tailed? Same plotline on yesterday's #TheAmericans.
But their lies aren't as good without wigs....and Russian hair and makeup.
#TheBlacklist Red is the savior of the Uzbekistani people. Who knew. And under four personally murdered.

#TheBlacklist Hmm. Art more accurate than news. CIA site reports all poisonings except for oil. US Embassy seems to promote American business interests. Links below.
Very realistic episode, down to the low level insurgency.

#TheAmericans We appreciate Philip's dentistry but why not use the doctor that treated Elizabeth's gun wound?
Posted by Philip Shropshire at 10:28 PM
#TheAmericans See? I'm not spy material. I just would have walked out of the car. No duck and roll for me....
Posted by Philip Shropshire at 10:27 PM
#TheAmericans Too many wigs. I spotted three in just the first 15 minutes, two for Elizabeth and one for Philip...who taught them?
You "amateurs" on #Allegiance. And those glasses? How do they remember them all?
#TheAmericans What Phil should have said: "You're really not committed unitl you marry the recruit..."
Posted by Philip Shropshire at 10:08 PM
#TheAmericans Or is this #Allegiance? I think this is the one with wigs so they're Real Spies Doin' Real Spyin'...

#TheWalkingDead So long Tyrese and boy ministers giving eulogies will have steady work in this universe...

#TheWalkingDead I'm also hoping something violent and morally ambiguous happens tonight. Fingers crossed.

#EdgeofTomorrow was actually one of the best science fiction films of the year. (Now playing on HBO.)
What's also cool is that its so layered that you benefit from repeat watchings.

#Allegiance A jazz quiz? I like these characters...Good actors certainly. Isn't this lowbrow for Hope Davis?

#Allegiance Looks like a big rip off of #TheAmericans but it answers an interesting question: What are the evil Russians doing now?
Like the intensity of the first scene. It's Blacklist dark, which is almost FX dark...
#TheBlacklist I think Ron is dead but I'm not sure. So that's three dead...is the David Strathairn part coming to an end?

#Blacklist Who or what's a Hinkle? Did he kill the driver? I predicted four murders this episode and so far all I've got is punching...
Sigh. I wish I could visit Belgrade. There's always Google Earth I guess and Anthony Bourdain I guess..
Posted by Philip Shropshire at 9:38 PM
#TheBlacklist Well I hope the world's most sinister effete and cultural super villain kills at least four people this episode...
Missed the first ten minutes...how did he survive the bombing?

#TheAmericans I read the newspapers too back then and that's an accurate story. Reagan always tried to cut college funding...
...Tip O Neill and the Dems always put it back but there were some cuts.
#TheAmericans "They're good with disguises." Well tlhey have a whole Soviet makeup team that follows Philip and Elizabeth around...
Seriously. That has to be it...
Posted by Philip Shropshire at 10:39 PM
#TheAmericans Oh gawd the most disturbing part of this show: Beeman's dead marriage...bring back the body folding.
Body folding I can handle. This slow motion divorce stuff seems very painful.
Always good to learn something useful like how to fold a murdered person into a suitcase. Just in case I turn into a crazy murderer...or a patriot serving my country.
Philip and Elizabeth are overworked.
Posted by Philip Shropshire at 10:10 PM
Or third wife. Or the really good fellatio from that dead chick. Or that you might occasionally have to go lesbo for Mother Russia
Somebody should sue...
