The Americans Review: There's No Happiness in the Cold War

The Soviet Union was the number one enemy of the United States, but while watching The Americans it's easy to forget that. Even though the Jennings are undercover KGB spies and were taught to fight against America, it's often difficult to hate them. They are individuals, a couple, and parents raising two American children that are also capable of friendship and love.

"Covert War" was on the face about the escalation of the violence between America and the Soviet Union during the Cold War, but really it was about the personal cost that affected those on both sides of the war. No one was safe from suffering the emotional strain of their job, regardless of if they were American, Soviet, or living a life in-between.
