All in the KGB Family: ‘The Americans’ on FX

The Americans on FX

Steve Cooper

My friend Liza reminded me about a show about a married couple that are KGB spies, living in DC during the Cold War. The show is premiering on FX Wed, Jan. 30th 2013

About the show:

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.

  1. I saw the coming attractions for this show, and I swear my chest started pounding. I would have sworn this was written by Steve, he has been warning people for many many years that this is going on. and described it in many ways, one way in particular is the plot to the show. NOW people are starting to wake up to what he has been saying for years. Brought chills to me, as i follow this site, i know a lot of the Military reads this site, and Now there’s a show on exact topics that have been on this site.

    1. I have been told by many to write books about this stuff, but I lack the patience 🙂

      I posted this on TWITTER – Half of America has been brainwashed to accept Socialism without an invasion from the Soviet Union. They invaded YOUR MINDS instead.

  2. The previews for this show have had me curious for well over a month and now that the show is finally premiering I’m really excited to see the first episode. The story behind the spies is as interesting as what they are reporting back to Moscow and my DISH co-workers can’t wait to see what happens. I think that this show is coming out at a great time and there’s been enough time between actual events involving the Cold War to warrant a show about this subject. I’ve got my DISH Hopper recording the show for me while I’m at work and I don’t have to think about it until I get home. Thanks to the Hopper’s huge hard drive I can record up to 2,000 hours of my favorite TV shows and movies. It puts me in control of how I watch TV and I can watch whenever I get the chance.
