    I've had yet to see Warrior, but I've heard nothing but good things, so this seems like a good match. I love the concept.

    It's from FX so I'll certainly give it a try.

    Hope it works out, love the concept and for some reason it seems right for a period drama in the 1980s after other shows tried the 1960s and failed.

    Yeah, it's time to see the 80s on TV. Such a great time for culture and world politics.

    Almost would've liked to have seen unknowns in the leads but satisfied with Russell's casting. With Powers in limbo I wonder if FX will get this out in the fall or wait until early 2013.

    I liked the sound of this when it was first mentioned on those studio pilot season potential lists. Keri Russell is solid casting.

    Oh man, for some reason I thought this was set in the 50s-60s.

    I can't stand 80s fashion. Even Keri can't make shoulderpads and three bottles of hairspray look good.

    Eh. I think they could concievably dodge the more horrific 80s trends, if they wanted to. I mean, surely not everyone wore that ugly crap................ right? :csad:

    Well it hasn't been picked up officially yet but of all the pilots in development at FX it has the best shot as Powers still hasn't moved forward. They'll probably make a decision soon and then it would likely air in February or spring 2013.

    Might get renamed, not sure if the network would want 'The Americans' and 'American Horror Story'.
