Wow, the finale' for The Americans really highlighted the problems that show faces. How long can they go till someone faces consequences. The tight getaways make for entertaining tv, but at some point it becomes 'looks like them Duke Boys are in a lot of hot water...oh wait, no they aren't.' Still good, and they introduced some nice developments for s2...but they are really going to have to get inventive to keep from blowing their credibility.
I need to have myself tested for autism(clearly, no disrespect to autism or those with an autistic child). I still find Anger Management entertaining despite it's cliche characters, terrible acting, stilted dialogue and direction...among other things. I don't rush to watch, but I do sit there for 20 some odd minutes and pay attention.
Watch: Trailer For Gerardo Naranjo-Directed FX Series 'The Bridge' With Demian Bichir & Diane Kruger | The Playlist
a police procedural featuring the police of two different countries working on the same case, after a body turns up at a Texan border crossing between the US and Mexico. In the original it was Denmark and Sweden, but really this version seems to offer more: murderous drug cartels, lawless shanty towns and yawning wealth gaps are easier to come by in Juarez than in Copenhagen (probably).This looks AWESOME.On top of that, "The Bridge" has Demián Bichir, Oscar-nominated last year for “A Better Life” (also about life and crime on both sides of the Rio Grande, but what's a Mexican actor to do?) and Diane Kruger playing the lead American cop. If you happen to be a hardcore “West Wing” fan, it also has Diana-Maria Riva and Annabeth Gish, but the rest of you aren't expected to know who they are, so don't worry. Gerardo Naranjo, behind the excellent "Miss Bala," also directed the pilot, so that's also a good sign.
