About the Series
Secrets can be deadly in this suspenseful thriller about undercover Russian spies in 1980s Washington. Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell) seem to be a typical suburban couple, but they’re actually lethal KGB agents plotting to bring down America. As the Cold War escalates, Philip and Elizabeth must take extreme measures to continue their mission and keep their true identities hidden. But when an FBI agent moves in across the street, they become ensnared in a pulse-pounding game of cat and mouse.

My Take on the Series
This was a well written show that I am amazed that I had not found until now! Well written and filled with intensity and engaging action, this series is one that I was quickly engrossed in and now am hoping to watch more in the future. As someone who has always enjoyed Kerri Russell and Matthew Rhys, both do a great job of embodying their characters and making them come alive. What I loved was how "American" these spies become and you truly would never have guessed that they were KGB agents (which is the point). This series will keep you on the edge of your seat and keep you coming back for more!
