The Americans

1,761 posts in this topic

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.

Previews look good. Kind of reminds me of Homeland with Russians.

I still have yet to watch Sons of Anarchy or Rescue Me, but FX has never let me down with their non-comedy TV series' so I'll definitely be checking this one out.

30 minutes in and Keri Russell has taken it in 2 out of 3 holes. Nice. Hoping for the hat trick before the halfway point.

I'm too effing stoopid to follow this the first time through. I'll need a second viewing to put the pieces together.
