FX’s mid-season premiere of The Americans took in 4.7 million viewers during its debut night. The series, centering on two Russian sleeper agents – Phillip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell) – stationed in America during the 80s, has already become a favorite at BuzzFocus. In the first Americans Team Focus Blast Off, we delve into the cerebral Pilot and discuss the dynamic backdrop of the 80s and the Reagan administration.
We also geek out on Miami Vice, favorite ways to snap a neck and why the 80s had the best make-out cars.
