The Mister and I watch a lot of TV in the evenings. I admit it. What do you expect? We’re empty nesters. No car pools, cold nights watching tennis practice, no more grilling parent/ teacher nights, or never-ending lines at Chick-fil-A buying our family’s dinner so that a portion of the proceeds would be donated to sponsor the 4th grade field trip to Six Flags. That part I don’t miss.
But I have to admit I miss having my girls at home every night
terribly every once in awhile.
Kerry Washington plays Olivia, who owns a crisis management firm. (I could have used her a few years ago when I was raising two teenage girls.) Anyway… she is a former White House Communication Director for the President of the United States, otherwise known as POTUS.
As if Olivia is not busy enough managing the crisis of every bigwig in DC, she is also having an affair with the POTUS. Reminder – I said “loosely based” on W’s press aide. This is the part where reality is replaced by Hollywood story lines.
Let’s not even talk about the fact that the First Lady is preggos. Ok, now I KNOW I stole your attention away from that silly old Super Bowl.
Tune in and let me know what you think.
No way was I coming late to the party on this new show. Tuned in, thanks to my personal “world news” source, People Magazine, that awarded The Americans a very good review.
I loved Kerry Russell in Felicity and couldn’t live without Matthew Rys’ sweet temperament in Brothers and Sisters.
The Americans is centered around a “typical” American couple raising two children in a DC suburb in the 1980’s. We gradually learn that this couple, Elizabeth and Phillip, are actually spies employed by the KGB. They were placed in America to work as “sleepers” gathering information for future use.
What makes this couple so interesting and provocative is that their marriage was arranged by the KGB. After watching this incredible love match, I urge my single friends to ditch Match.com and join the CIA.
Happy Super Bowl Sunday!
Hope your team wins!
