On FX's new drama The Americans, two Russian spies move to the United States, start a family and spy on — you guessed it — America. Welcome to the height of the Cold War, an era when Americans lived in constant fear that the Russians could get the upper hand. The cleverness of The Americans is that the show actually gets you rooting for the bad guys. That's because, deep down, the series is a family drama — this just isn't your conventional family.
