TV show description:
This period drama takes place in the early 1980s, shortly after Ronald Reagan was elected President.

Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell) are a pair of KGB spies who live in a suburb of Washington DC. They are married and have two children — 13-year-old Paige (Holly Taylor) and 10-year-old Henry (Keidrich Sellati) — who have no idea about their parents’ secret identities.

Philip and Elizabeth are in an arranged marriage but it’s become more passionate and genuine as time has passed. Their relationship however is constantly tested — by the escalation of the Cold War and the relationships they must maintain with a network of spies and informants under their control.

Complicating their relationship even 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 Hern├índez), are members of a new division of Counterintelligence that’s tasked with fighting against foreign agents on US soil — including KGB Directorate S illegals (Russian spies posing as Americans).

One of the best shows on TV as the ratings show. Sure beats all the reality shows. I along with a lot of friends will miss if they discontinue the Americans. A very serious time during the Cold War and so many of these events actually happened. Excellent cast and directing.

The American’s deserve prime time. I was in this era. This show and its talent are a work of authenticity. It is serious, but not to serious. It appears a great deal of research, has gone into this show. Each episode is a cliff hanger, and you look forard to the next episode. Great Job Fox. Thank you for a great Show.
