Description

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.

    One of the best spy dramas on TV right now (comparable to if not better than Homeland) depicting the Reagan years of the Cold War from the unique perspective of two married KGB sleeper agents. I was pleasantly surprised that FX produced such a great drama that is top notch on all fronts - superb acting, well cast, intricate plot development, and a spot as an 80s period piece. This show only gets better with each season, one of the very few shows I subscribe to each season on my Apple TV. Don’t miss out on this one.

    I come here to avoid the commercials and yet pay my share for the show. I see the season price is discounted but I would gladly buy the season and pay more for it without the commercials. I won´t buy even another episode because of them. Pity.
  • Good start.

    Great series, dark but not deep -read realistic, enough. Intel ops have a wide range of influence. T.As. Only shows the spy couple going about their daily American family/ Soviet spies life, just following orders. Interesting but could have gone further.
  • Not bad for tv

    A pretty good series, based on a fun premise. Not great, however. The writing is sometimes really clunky and shows the writers' (a) age, when they get details about how people thought and talked in the 80s just plain wrong (e.g., NO one in the early 1980s would have to explain who "this actress, Jodie Foster" was), and (b) their ignorance about Washington DC -- e.g., NO one in the DC metro says "southeast DC." Maybe since they shoot the show on Long Island they figured they'd get a by, but a smidgen of homework would've helped. Why didn't they just ask their parents? Still, it's well acted, and the plots are no sillier than on any other tv show of this fantasy-espionage genre, and it moves along pretty briskly and with some real tension and suspense. Taken with a few grains of salt it's decent entertainment.
  • More yawn than wow

    Reviews are significantly overrated. Moderately interesting, but rather pedestrian overall. Not a wow series by any means.
  • Good writing, good plot, good fun

    I hope the 2nd season’s as good as the first. Also, they must have removed the commercials that people were complaining about - there weren’t any commercials in any of the episodes I downloaded.
  • Smart show - - original - - well acted

    This series is so smart. Characters are intriguing and complex. Plot is suspenseful, always with the unexpected. The series is original and different. Had to watch episodes without stopping.
