Has anyone got into this show? I just caught the pilot last night & it's pretty good.
The second episode airs tonight.

I have no idea, but if I were them I woulda let the kid die. The neighbor stuff is really tense.

Good concept for a show.

Yep. The guy they got to be the CIA/Neighbor is a good pick. He's pretty intense. Although I hated him in TWD.
Philip is really in love with his partner.

Elizabeth?

Yeah dude was a good choice. The interactions between Philip and Beeman are gold. It's like a good chess match.

Yeah, with her. And I like how the fight scenes aren't over the top.
Funny how they got Beeman to be suspicious of Philip & Elizabeth so quick. Others shows might have dragged such a plot on.

Wasn't Beeman in Philip & Elizabeth's garage snooping around in the same episode in which he met them?

I'm saying, any other show might have dragged such a scenario out. One obvious show that comes to mind is Breaking Bad with Hank finally finding a major clue pointing towards Walt.

I figured that's what you were thinking. In BB I think Hank always knew he just didn't/couldn't believe Walt was (for a while he wasn't a terrible guy)Heisenberg. I didn't feel that dragging on, we had tons of other storylines that glued me to scenes and episodes.

Kinda slow(I hope this doesn't kill it) but solid again.

IMO, no way could Hank know it was Walt. He freakin' survived a cartel hit. The look on his face when he saw the initials confirms it.
Back on track...

I'll agree, last nights episode was a bit slow. Derek Luke was good but maybe a bit too mushy with his love for Elizabeth.
Tough how they staged that OD.

It was harsh, as a spy you can't do stuff like having something on the side like that. Gregory made a good point when he said maybe he didn't think of you as friend. These KGB don't seem to trust each other.

That's tough for Philip with him falling for Elizabeth.
