It's so hard to wrap my head around all the covert operations that go on in this country. I imagine it's pretty hard for those in other Countries to figure out our (United States) intent on their society once we show up and refuse to leave.
The recent arrests of the Russian Spy Ring is mind blowing to me. I guess it shouldn't be. With one of the couples right here in Virginia, I have to wonder how I would feel if they were people I had contact with. How betrayed would you feel if these were your friends? What impact would it have on you if one of these spies regularly frequented your place of business? Do you think you would get that gut instinct about them? Would you only get it after they were arrested? Would you go back each encounter with them in your mind to see if there was something that should have tipped you off?
Rubicon is a new show airing this Sunday and it follows intelligence analyst Will Travers who cracks codes for a living. Will's life is turned upside down by recent events and sets him off on a mission of his own to get some answers. This series taps into our collective paranoia and I believe will not disappoint.
AMC’s newest original drama series “Rubicon” debuts on Sunday, August 1 with a special two-hour premiere from 8–10pm ET.
Check out the preview and then get the popcorn ready Sunday night for this edge-of-your-seat thriller.
Ya know that whole spy thing was bizarre to say the least. I couldn't get over how "obvious" the red~headed chick was (really, a Facebook page and pics in a tiara?). What kind of spy is that? And what information was she trying to get? Maybe they were cultural spies, here to find out about pop culture and then import it back to Russia? :-)ReplyDelete
I don't know what I think of this whole spy thing...doesn't seem real.ReplyDelete
The TV show, they've advertised is so much, makes me think it's not very good. That seems to happen alot. They show something over and over, and they show you the only good parts. We'll have to see if that holds true again as it so often does.
Spy in peacetime is almost unbelievable...and shockingReplyDelete
