I really enjoyed the pilot episode. It has the "Homeland" feel to it, but that's about it. This is another story altogether. In Homeland, its one potential guy who might have turned terrorist. But in this, the debate is if the KGB even exists,(It's not really if the KGB exists, but if Directorate S exists. These were Soviet spies in deep cover on US soil who, for all intents and purposes, seemed to be the picture perfect "American".)
In 1981, they were beginning to access the threat. Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys play married KGB spies. No one would ever know they are Russian spies. They live in a perfect neighborhood and have two children. They blend in perfectly. Of course, the children are Americans and have no idea what their parents do. I think this show has a lot of potential. I will be interested to see how it plays out and what complications arise for Phillip and Elizabeth Jennings, especially now that their neighbor is an FBI agent. It's nice revisiting the past. SO far, so good.
