The Russians

Finally starting The Americans. It airs on FX, but I’m streaming it from the beginning on Amazon Prime Video. Love that Death Comes to Pemberley‘s Darcy co-stars! I’m not really familiar with Kerri Russell. I watched a few episodes of Felicity…I think…back when it was on. All I know is that I need to at least give a shot to any show  is obsessed with.

The Americans is back — and it’s still the best-kept secret on TV

 

*If you haven’t seen it, you should definitely stream DCTP on Netflix.

 

Ain’t Your Consumer

I would be much more into Jennifer Lopez’s feminist anthem, “Ain’t Your Mama“, if the excellent nod to Network in the opening wasn’t interrupted with the most blatant product placement I’ve ever seen outside a soap opera. I understand the need for TV shows to increase profitability with integrated advertising. But WTF, J.Lo? Someone explain the need for a wealthy, powerful pop star to (not subtly) hawk Lavazza in a music video? Soaps are really struggling (largely bc of the hegemony of masculinity, btw), so I get that. But, J.Lo? Wtf wtf wtf???😟
