Abundant OTA television is what makes this country different from all others. Lets keep it this way. If you like Wi-Fi so much, OTA fits right in. After all, it is wireless.

Best show on TV right now, IMHO, and criminally underrated. And yes, I know 'Justified' is back too.

Anyone that has bought or rented any of the season two DVD's (not BluRay) notice the interlace problem? Theses were from two sources and view on two TV's and two DVD players. Also viewing through a PC which is where the attached screen shots were taken. Season 1 was had no issue. I never encountered this before.

The 1st two are season one, the 3rd & 4th are season two. The entire season is the same from both sources Netflix & Family Video. I purposely include the task bar to confirm focus.

How is it underrated? Critics love the show, it regularly features in the press and magazines and has been up for over 20 awards (with some wins) and it's only in the third season.

The only drama to have a higher Metacritic rating last year was Game of Thrones!

I was referring to audience size and awards actually won. Outside of the AFI, it hasn't really won anything. I don't think it's even been nominated for a "best drama" Emmy. I know, the Emmy's are voted on by people who don't watch much television, but they still suck all the oxygen out of the TV awards room. And some love from the Emmy's might translate into more people finding the show.

Justified has never been nominated for a series Emmy either and it usually takes two seasons before any voters notice anything outside of network and HBO.

In 2007 Heroes was nominated for best drama, so to look for appreciation from just the Emmys doesn't count for much. The Americans gets more than it's share of appreciation from everyone that matters.

It's on FX anyway so it's ratings are never going to be greatly improved by being mentioned at the Emmys. Those looking for good drama already watch FX shows, the rest avoid the channel no matter what is on.

That was... abrupt. You'd think they'd announce the premiere date before the premiere date.

Oh, I thought people were just asking a page or two ago when it was coming back, and the reply was that nobody knew. It must have been for a different show.
