The Americans Reviews & Ratings

Tuesdays, 10:00 PM ET on FX

60 minutes

Created by Joe Weisberg, The Americans is a period drama about the complex marriage of two KGB spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington DC shortly after Ronald Reagan is elected President. The arranged marriage of Phillip (Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Russell), who have two children 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 Phillip’s growing sense of affinity for America’s values and way of life. Tensions also heighten upon the arrival of a new neighbor, Stan (Emmerich), an FBI agent working in counter intelligence.

This season was intense, well written, superbly acted, compelling must see TV. I never loved two commies so much. I can't wait for next season.

My husband and I LOVE this show. It's deep, doesn't insult our intelligence, and has a great cast. Just a great show all around. We are part of the nuclear fear, Cold War generation, and it's nice to see the good and the bad of both sides.

This show was a tip from a friend of mine. And a good tip.

The Americans take place in the early 80's and is about two KGB spies placed in the american community. It is some what an arranged marriage. But they clearly care for each other. And that is for my the best part of the show. Ofcourse their is some great spystuff in there. And it is a bit weird to follow two russian spies in America fighting a war against them. In the most cases you see the USA against Russia.

There are some intresting story lines in the show. Phillip and Elizabeth (The two spies) are in America for about 18 years, give or take. And Phillip is liking living in the USA more and more. They have two children and raised as an Americans. They have no idea that they are Russian. There is a lot of intresting stuff in there. Including how thet did spywork 30 years ago.
