    For our fourth entry in the Hall of Faces, Allison and Clint (with Kate Kulzick in tow) celebrate the host of spies, killers, and handlers in FX’s recently completed series The Americans with a fierce debate – does only one of the Jennings deserve to get in, or do we say “why not both?”


    Who else gets in? Martha? Claudia? The mail robot? Like the show itself, the latest TV Party takes its cast on some breathtaking twists and turns, with more than a few difficult, world-shattering decisions to make.

    While we’re at it, we weigh in on the exhaustive, week-long controversy surrounding Roseanne‘s cancellation, start our season-long segment of Bachelorette haikus, and much more!
