The Americans is a period drama about the complex marriage of two KGB spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington D.C. shortly after Ronald Reagan is elected President. The arranged marriage of Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell), who have two children – 13-year-old Paige (Holly Taylor) and 10-year-old Henry (Keidrich Sellati), who know nothing about their parents’ true identity – grows more passionate and genuine by the day, but is constantly tested by the escalation of the Cold War and the intimate, dangerous and darkly funny relationships they must maintain with a network of spies and informants under their control. Complicating their relationship further is Philip’s growing sense of affinity for America’s values and way of life. Tensions also heighten upon the arrival of a new neighbor, Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich), an FBI agent. Stan and his partner, Agent Chris Amador (Maximiliano Hernández), are members of a new division of Counterintelligence tasked with fighting against foreign agents on U.S. soil, including KGB Directorate S illegals, Russian spies posing as Americans.

I was surprised I couldn't find a thread for this show when it's premiering tomorrow. Even though I like Keri Russell I wasn't that interested in the series until some good reviews started popping up.

Critics seem to really love it. It might be interesting to me- depends on how heavily they focus on the spy part, I guess. Will check it out.

The ending of Season one involves a cliffhanger where an individual government agent knows they are spies. In season two he gets killed off but the kids start putting together the pieces of their parent's lives. Season 2 ends with the kids telling the parents they know. Season 3 involves the family coming to terms with tho they really are, but the Soviet government begins to push the two parent's lives in very different directions.


You are welcome

I am definitely on board because of Keri Russell, the fact that its on FX, and I think it is a neat twist on the spy/espionage genre I like so much. I am very excited for it.

They must have a lot of faith in this show considering the amount of marketing that they've done for it. I'm still not sold at all, but I'll definitely DVR it and check it out this weekend.

I obsess over anything Cold-War related. This is no different. Hopefully it won't be a disappointment.
