OMG! I'm loving the whole espionage KGB agents infiltrating America as citizens thing. Matthew Rhys PHWOAR! I just wish the episodes were longer, I'm soooooo addicted.

Just me then?

I have put it on series link - I think you need to see at least two (possibly three) episodes of anything to be sure i you'll like it so am waiting til I have a couple to do the initial test viewing.

(that makes me sound weird, doesn't it?)

It was billed as "filling the Homeland-shaped hole in your lie", which is promising.

I've seen the first three episodes by now (double bill on RTE on Thursday night) and I'm still loving it smile Think it's great how it shows the conflicts in their lives, sometimes tempted to defect, sometimes still gung-ho about the motherland even after living in the US for all that time.

Blinking good, isn't it? Waiting now for DH to catch up so we can watch rest on series link together. Love it when we have a 'show' and I don't think thats happened since Lost.

Really enjoying this. Watching on RTE, so I don't want to accidentally post a spoiler, but Matthew Rhys is indeed lovely, I want Keri Russell's hair and their fictional kids must be the least curious teenagers in history.

I'm only up to episode 2, is RTE Irish tv?. The suspense about the new neighbour who's in the FBI is killing me. Brilliant how the husband and wife can go from assassins to civilians in the space of 30 seconds.

Yep, Rte is Irish telly. We've just had episode three and I'm hooked (and also fascinated by the amount of wigs they appear to own).

I've not seen this-when/where's it on?

squeelybean Tue 11-Jun-13 08:18:28

I really didnt want to watch it but Dh insisted we try and now i'm hooked.

Makes my life look a bit dullgrin

My DH gave up on it halfway through the first episode biscuit

BabsAndTheRu Tue 11-Jun-13 18:19:23

Loving it, great to have something good to watch on Saturday night. We don't get out much, can you tell?

Lighthousekeeping Tue 11-Jun-13 22:54:40

Oh, i really thought this would be on catch up sad

diddl Wed 12-Jun-13 06:46:43

It's not on catch up??

Oh no-how am I supposed to watch?

How many have I missed?

Racers Wed 12-Jun-13 07:14:50

It is on itv catchup online (couldn't see it through skybox when I tried). Not sure if both episodes are still on there?

I've watched the first 2 episodes on itv player. I'm hooked. I agree with the pp who said "it fills the homeland shaped hole in your life" - I can't wait for the 3rd series of that either!

I was holding my breath at times when the FBI neighbour was investigating grin

diddl Wed 12-Jun-13 07:51:38

Oh! Phew!

<wipes sweat from brow & calms down>

I am just loving this series and am having my first ever proper celebrity crush on Matthew Rhys...am getting a bit hot under the collar just thinking about him... I have never been like this before!

diddl Thu 13-Jun-13 07:45:18

Just watched the first ep & thought it was great.

Really loved "Tusk" at the beginning/end as well.

MR id lovely-only watched Brothers & Sisters because of him!

buildingmycorestrength Thu 13-Jun-13 14:36:48

He doesn't look like a normal crush-type but my goodness...

Optimist1 Sun 16-Jun-13 22:13:02

Loving it! And wondering are the kids left home alone when their parents are doing their Spy Thing out and about for hours at night?
