Your Next Box Set: The Americans

On the lookout for a new box set to spend your evenings devouring? Each week, hmv.com will be recommending you a series that will swallow up your whole life until your finish the last episode...

This week, it’s The Americans…

 

What is it?

It’s set up like this: Elizabeth and Phillip Jennings are your ordinary everyday couple, making a quiet living in Washington DC. Except they aren’t, they’re actually spies for the Soviet Union and working for the KGB. Their children don’t know, their family don’t know and it’s a struggle every day to keep it a secret…

 

Who’s in it?

Keri Russell and Brothers & Sisters’ star Matthew Rhys lead as Elizabeth and Phillip, with Noah Emmerich, Susan Misner and Maximiliano Hernández also all in key roles.

 

Why should I watch it?

Because it’s just so damn gripping, that’s why.

 

Describe the show in three words…

Spooky, slick and super-compelling.
