    Loved this show. Don’t get the idiot who says no one can act. Fast paced and visually exciting. Hope 2 c it again soon.if u can’t follow or keep up go back to watching all the bitches on Beverly Hills botox extravaganza.

  2. “HOPE” will hopefully fade FAST (lots of puns).
    NBC’s Allegiance was HORRIBLE and embarrasing, besides being a patent RIP-OFF of “The Americans”, ALL the actors were the worst I’ve seen in broadcast television in a very long time.

    All the CIA agents are laughably terrible actors with Gavin Stenhouse, his female partner (who’s unaccredited even on the NBC site) and Kenneth Choi are particularly incompetent actors. On The American’s Rip-off side, Scott Cohen and Morgan Spector are as convincing as a plastic ice-cube. All Margarita Levieva has to give this show is a hot booty and legs and no talent. Hope Davis as the hinted Bi-sexual Russian mom is barely passable.

    But worse yet is the show’s script and premise, which is completely implausible; Comic books for 10 year-olds are written better than this. And I passed up watching Victoria Secret’s “T&A” show to review this piece of crap? I agree this awful show should have been cancelled even before opening the barn doors for this Pig to even have gotten out to Spring replace Elementary (whose writing lately has also been shoddy) TWO Thumbs Down!

    Hmmm, The Americans, just modern day? No original ideas out there anymore.

    OMG!!! So like, ALLEGIANCE is basically a high school drama where the protagonist is the cool kid, but he finds out that his parents are teachers at his new school. But replace cool kid with CIA and teachers with FSB.
