A pair of deep-cover Soviet spies masquerades as a typical DC couple whose children, neighbors, coworkers & friends are completely unaware of their activities. At home, they're the stereotypical parents of stereotypical kids; at work, they pose as travel agents; but at night, they weave a web of confidants, lovers, dupes, and historical figures from the Reagan-era Cold War. The startlingly realistic plot twists force the viewer to consider the real cost of an undeclared war, what it takes to protect one's beliefs, if it's worth it, and if it actually worked for either side.

The Americans season 1 episode 1, starts with Keri Russell meeting a US government agent at a bar in order to get information and then segues into a chase scene with Fleetwood Mac’s Tusk as the music. Ever been a better start to a series? 27 comments

(media) I'm watching The Americans for the first time and I notice this Russian tricolor flag pin in with Vlad's stuff in Season 1 Episode 12 "The Oath" at about 13 minutes in. Why would he have a pin like this? It's either too early or in reference to anticommunist Russia. 8 comments
