A show with intellect with unique casting that works and thought behind the writing, I look forward to the next season.

Just checked it out. It's really lame. Also, you claim it has positive reviews from the audience and yet it took quite the ratings dip after the first week. Not sure why they renewed this shite.

Caprock, I am a 70 year old retired male. I remember those days where you could lead a relaxing life. Go to oscar's drive in get a cherry coke and fries. Companies respected the workers, what a great time. I find it refreshing to look back at that time. Car doors sounded tiny when closed. Cars were big plenty of room in the trunk. Friendly people where ever I went. Maybe your life then was not so nice, if so sorry about that. The show is good enough for me to watch and get hooked on. GO AMERICANS hope thy become double agents by the end of the year. MKL

Finally, some good news. An interesting and well acted show gets renewed, and it is not a piece of crap braindead reality show. What a shock.

Such glowing reviews above, and I hate to pour water on it....But, I watched the first two episodes, found the show to be pathetic, and erased it from my DVR schedule.
Maybe it's because I was raising a family through most of the cold war years and I simply don't care to go back. I don't necessarily remember them as, "the good old days."

OMG a good show not cancelled maybe NBC,FOX,CBS and NBC need to take lessons from FX and how to build a following it takes more than 2 or 3 episodes.

I just discovered this show by accident, I'm glad I found it. The acting is great, the plot is fast-paced and exciting. I'm glad it's been renewed!

I was really glad to see this renewed. This is my most favorite new show, so far this year. It's nice to see that there are still new shows that can make it past the first season. I can't wait to see what the rest of this season has for us, and obviously, can't wait for season 2.
