From Sweetheart to Russian Spy

While many TV shows are reaching their season finales, new shows take over. If you are feeling like an orphan, without any new show to follow, the new FX series The Americans premiered on January 30th. 

Full of sexy and involving scenes, the story happens during the 80's, in Washington, DC. It is based on the life of a couple of Russian spies who live under cover and manage to do it so well that not even their children suspect anything. Hey, for all I know, maybe my parents are spies too...

If you missed the first 2 episodes, here is the promo video:

The story itself is very appealing. The spies live a married life, but go on missions and have sexual encounters with several people in their search for information. They also build relationships with strangers so the espionage apparatus can be planted. That same mumbo-jumbo in every spy story.

How their relationship works as a couple, only God knows. I know that rolling from bed to bed using the "it is for work, baby" excuse wouldn't fly with me!

However, what really catches everyone's attention is that Keri Russell, aka lovely and innocent Felicity, is the main character as the strong and sexy spy. After a while away from the screens, Keri has been in many men day-dreams with her still young and angelical looks, but now also much more mature.

Felicity, the girl who could never wear make-up or do her hair.

I guess getting older in some cases is a blessing, she looks even more breath taking now than when living her NYU times!

On a side note, the years passed, but her habit of not wearing bras keep as alive as it has ever been...have any of you noticed that Keri hardly EVER has a bra on?

What is your opinion about the new series? Will you be watching it?
