First Look: The Americans

I know I've already done a blog about this show but it's been a while since I've last discussed it and given that American Horror Story has finished up, well The Americans is very much due now ...

The concept for the show has already revealed that Keri Russell (Felicity) and Matthew Rhys (Brothers And Sisters) are playing a band of Russian agents pretending to be an average American couple (Elizabeth and Philip Jennings) but their cover does from a lot of the recent trailers look like it could be blown any minute.

Having watched the trailers quite a bit, I get the impression that in some ways, FX's latest success story (come on - I will be genuinely shocked if this flops) could be something of a mash up of Homeland and Alias and both Rhys and Russell look like they've got tonnes of chemistry to boast as well. This could definitely be one of the most talked about new shows of 2013 and the trailers definitely suggest it's worth getting invested in.
