If I’ve talked to you in the past year or so, I’ve probably talked your ear off about spies, from Homeland to the Mata Hari. I’m obsessed with espionage like a seven-year-old is obsessed with dinosaurs. So, I wrote this thing about the excellent FX spy show The Americans, the second season of which premiered last week. I couldn’t find a home for it in time, so I made a home for it myself on the beautiful Medium. RIYL cloaks and daggers and pop-culture criticism (no spoilers, and no need to have watched the show).
