Season Premiere: Competition and national pride

See also

Most new seasons of television shows premiere in the fall, but there is a select few that get started at the beginning of the new year. With the Sochi Olympics drawing to a close, it’s time to get excited about the TV shows about to premier.

Season 2 of The Americans, a show about two KGB Russian spies undercover in 1980’s America, is set to debut on Feb 26th on FX. The show is set in Cold War era America approximately 30 years ago. For those left with a lingering post-Olympic US / Russian competitive spirit, the show has plenty of suspenseful, edge-of-your-seat excitement. Unlike the Olympics however, history has already written the outcome of the Cold War.

In Sochi, Scandinavia is doing a bang-up job battling their way to the top. On Feb 27th, the History Channel is taking the competition back over 800 years with the Season 2 premiere of the Vikings. Ragnar Lothbrok and his brood of warriors fight, raid, and pillage for gold, silver, and bronze and all sorts of treasure.

The Olympics may be coming to an end, but competition and national pride still reign over our television.
