'The Assets' Gets the Axe

Well, this blows. I was really enjoying "The Assets" and apparently, I wasn't the only one and now it's gone after only two episodes. It wasn't as good as its Cold War television counterpart, the fantastic "The Americans," which returns for a second season in February, but it was well done in its own right. The fact that the show received little to no marketing may have had something to do with its dismal ratings, but one wonders if it was considered politically toxic (as in, communism/Soviet Union bad; capitalism/USA good) by the powers-that-be and axed at the nearest opportunity? I guess we'll never know.
