Second Verse, Same as the First

This is getting ridiculous...

Alyssa Rosenberg, writing on F/X's new show The Americans, continues to prove that she can only play one note:
Elizabeth Jennings (Kerri Russell), the KGB spy living under cover in the United States of 1980 in the Cold War drama The Americans, which premieres on FX tonight, represents a major break from this anti-hero tradition for two reasons. First, she’s a woman.
Jesus Christ, lady, give it a rest.  Straight dudes don't even have this kind of vagina fixation!

And hey, maybe Alyssa has a point.  I dunno.  I haven't seen the show.  But I would fucking hope that the most interesting thing about Kerri Russell's character isn't that "she's a woman."  That's a wee bit sexist, don't you think? (Not to mention...flipping obvious.)
