Are we feeling FX’s New Show “The Americans”?

The-Americans-FX-Poster-300x450 Last night kicked of the premiere of the new original FX show The Americans. The show focuses around a husband and wife, who were actually put together by the Russian KBG Spy unit. The two were put together as an image to enter into America, the two are to act as a married couple and speak without their Russian accent.

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.

It may be a little too early for us to give this show a rating but so far from the first episode we are definitely loving this show. I have to say on the other hand that my favorite character so far has to be the husband. He has turned his hate for America into a slight liking, he wants out of the game for his kids sake, but his wife on the other hand seems like she is the type that will sacrifice her whole family in order to stay loyal to her country.
