“Allegiance” — Totally Original New Network TV Series. NOT!!!!!
“Allegiance” is an upcoming NBC series about the family conflicts and internal dilemmas of Russian spies living in the United States. Wow!!! What a novel idea for a TV series.
This is groundbreaking! Nobody has ever thought of anything like this before.
I have nothing against this new TV show. I might even check it out this Thursday. Maybe there's room for more than one TV program about Russian spies living in the U.S. and trying to blend in.
But I'll be mighty pissed off if Allegiance becomes a huge hit while The Americans (FX, Wednesdays at 10 p.m.) — “the best TV program you're not watching” — continues to get excellent critical reviews and rock-bottom Nielsen ratings.
