and continue to believe it to be one of the best written and performed shows on TV. If that makes me a Philistine so be it.
1st this is a drama set back 30 years ago , this is not a history lesson , this is spy vs spy with human people not cartoon/action figures
there is just so $ for production so Yes there's gonna slight "issues" with the production getting the scenes "correct for the time period " .
Me I like it !
I rate it right up there with "Justified"
Having lived during the time period when this all happened , I do not look for out of time period mistakes as props or speech , I concentrate on the plot & characters .
I'm taking it all in with faith that a great story is being told .
