The Americans

Looks like a good show. I have a timer set on regular FX, but I was wondering can someone with FX Canada confirm that this show is actually airing tonight? I don't see it on Superchannel.

yes blackloz it was on tonite but I don't know what you mean by Superchannel it was on FX. It was nice to have it b'cuz otherwise we'd have to wait to 10 pm to watch it on FX US. :-)

It was pretty good, especially after the neighbors moved in.

It definately has potential. Doesn't seem to take itself as seriously as Homeland and there's plenty of room for light stuff with the 80s motif (the girl doing her homework on a manual typewriter. And man, forgot how high up the hips women used to wear their jeans then).

I was just wondering as pre FX Canada Superchannel snagged most of FX's shows, and since I don't have access to FX Canada on Bell and was to lazy to look it up on their website, I was just curious. Anyway I did DVR it and will watch it this weekend.

Lucky I'm not in a sensitive governmental position 'cause I would have given up all my state secrets to her in about 5 minutes!

I see that the Pilot episode is going to be aired on Citytv on Tuesday 12 February. It is a good news for me since I - with Bell Fibe - do not get FX. My question then, is it going to be permanent for the whole season or it is just a one-episode teaser so that people subscribe to FX?

I would be almost certain it's a teaser, like they did last year with that talking dog show, and American Horror Story. Have seen several ads for The Americans on various Rogers-owned channels, and they all say it's only available on FX, contact your provider blah blah, and have big letters on the bottom of the screen 'not available on Bell'.
So it's highly unlikely they'll turn around and air the whole thing on City when they're making such a big deal on their own ads about subscribing to FX to see it.

Unfortunately this is one show I would like to see, but I am on Bell Fibe...and FX isn't enough to make me want to change lol! I figure if it does well, eventually it'll show up on regular TV, or on Netflix or iTunes or something.

He was listed as a "Special Guest" and played an official in the FBI Headquarters Building. He appeared in the scene when the FBI agent who moved in next door to the KGB couple was told about the disappearance of the Agent who I assume was killed at the beginning of the episode. His role was so insignificant, I doubt he will be in another episode. If he does, his name will be listed with the cast list at the beginning.
In COGECO's program guide, the programme is listed as a "pilot" so I suspect it will be back next Wednesday.

It looks like just the one episode since the U.S networks are airing the State of the Union address that day, so it makes a nice filler and a teaser. Body of Proof starts as scheduled on Tue. Feb. 19.

The pilot episode also is being replayed on fxhd on Feb 13th at 8 central time. But it's only listed at an hour long. Why is it showing 90 mins on City? This is according to my guide on Shaw direct.
