Trailer


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.

Keri Russell does not age. I suppose if I could watch later season Felicity and August Rush, I can definitely watch her in something that could be good.

I wonder if all the glowing reviewers saw more than just the pilot. I thought it was meandering and flat alongside looking and sounding like crap a lot of the time. The trailer for the rest of the season looked to be a different look, so hopefully it was just a bad crew for the pilot. It has a lot of potential, and I really want to like it, but I just don't see how it earned a ton of good marks based just on the pilot.

One more thing, if the FBI guy who was just transferred to the counter intelligence dept right at the exact time that there's a high profile defector gone missing along with the body of a KGB agent and right before a presidential directive to look for sleeper agents moves across the street from the agents responsible for the mess is a pure coincidence, then that's insulting even for low TV standards. He better be KGB himself (which the garage snooping pretty much discounts) or be so deep undercover that the guys at the FBI don't know and have some sort of reason to be in that neighborhood. If it's coincidence, it's ####### absurd.

It was also absurd of the KGB agent inviting the FBI agent into his garage for jumper cables, but I'll give it a pass (for now).

That was pretty stupid but he kind of wanted to get caught before the garage fight (LOVED when she kicked his head through the drywall!) so I could give it a pass as well.
