5 Reasons We Love Watching: 'The Americans'

It's the peak drama of the Peak TV era, featuring two of television's most compelling performances and engrossing stories that, while rooted in decades-old conflicts, feel chillingly relevant. Critics have been raving about this FX show since its premiere in 2013, and Emmy voters finally came around after Season 4, nominating the show for Outstanding Drama Series and Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys in the lead acting categories. As if that weren't enough, here are a few more reasons to check out The Americans . 5. Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys play Russian spies living among ordinary American families in the Washington, D.C., suburbs. And their disguises are ev-er-y-thing.   Philip as Clark. Elizabeth as Clark’s sister. Elizabeth and Philip as U.S. government agents. Philip as Patty's brother. 4. In a television rarity, the kids don't suck. Paige has become a major player, moving the plot along in important ways. Meanwhile, Henry typically is MIA until there's a real reason for him to appear.       3. The Americans uses music better than almost any other show on TV.   From the very beginning, this show went all in with evocative '80s jams. Closing the pilot with Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight" was a bold move that paid off. It's somewhat surprising, but ultimately to the show's credit, that it took three and a half seasons for this iconic Queen song to be dropped into the mix. 2. The storylines are shockingly / surprisingly / depressingly relevant.   The Americans and America pic.twitter.com/5MI0Yh2jHN — Dru Menaker (@drumenaker) March 3, 2017 1. Whether she's taking down the enemy or teaching her reluctant daughter how to swim, Keri Russell's Elizabeth is a badass boss.         The Americans is airing its fifth season on FX now.
