    The Americans had a great first season and I’m glad that show promoted so many talented actresses as series regulars….a lot of Americans fans who really wanted to see Nina on the show more for season two and it looks like their wish came true. The show is amazing and I just re-watched an episode this morning via DISH Anywhere on my Galaxy S3.
