I actually really liked the Americans, especially the pilot where they played Fleetwood Mac's Tusk and Matthew Rhys looked like a dead ringer for Lindsey Buckingham! When they do the inevitable Fleetwood Mac movie - and I can't believe they haven't yet - he is a shoe in for that role!


I finished watching the final season of Dexter recently, and all I can say is I've never seen a show go downhill as much as that one. It was one of my favourites of all time, but the last few seasons - particularly the final one - have been really bad and the last episode and the direction they took - absolutely dreadful. My advice to anyone starting on Dexter is don't bother beyond Season 4. The following series have their moments, but nothing could beat the end of that season.

The other problem with a lot of dramas is how to prolong them. If they keep repeating the premise that hooked viewers in the first place then people will get tired of it, but if they move too far away and change the game - like at the end of Dexter Season 6 and what happens between him and Deb in Season 7 - then they lose what people loved about the show in the first place. Damned if you do, damned if you don't!
