“There’s a scene from the pilot where Russell’s character Elizabeth slaps Rhys’ character Philip’s face and Keri just — I don’t think she really meant to — but man she just took a whack at him. She hit him so hard because they were both so into the scene, and Matthew didn’t even flinch. It was like he just hadn’t even gotten hit, there was something about that moment…when he took that hit he just seemed like the toughest guy in the world.” - executive producer Joe Weisberg on how Matthew Rhys scored the role.

I am in complete love w/ the Americans & this blog and I've listened to so many songs from fan made playlists that fit the relationship between Philip x Elizabeth, and I found this one song i think u might enjoy it's by Ed Sheeran and it's called fall. It's really good. I see the song as Philip to Elizabeth. I hope you enjoy it :) keep running this fantastic blog honey.

Hey doll :) Thanks for saying that, I really appreciate it <3 

8tracks playlists for the show have really become more popular haven’t they! I have some still in my blog queue. 

Great song rec, I added it to my own mix that I made last year. This is my other mix but it’s a soundtrack rather than a fanmix :) 




From Tradecraft to Sexpionage, Cold War K.G.B. and U.S. Spies Concur: The Americans Actually Happened

“In your world, many times, you ask your young men to stand up and proudly serve their country. In Russia, sometimes we ask our women just to lie down.”

It may sound like the start of an “In Soviet Russia …” joke, but that’s Oleg Kalugin, Vladimir Putin’s old boss at the K.G.B., talking. And he’s expertly authenticating one of the most intriguing, and surprisingly historically accurate, products of his old enemy: The Americans, the FX series that wraps up its second season on Wednesday.

It’s not just using sex to snag secrets—as both spy characters on The Americanshave done—that makes the show so authentic…

Hi, I was hoping, if it wouldn't be a bother, you could please post a link to the video in which Elizabeth and Philip hug each other w/ guns in their hands, I'm sorry I don't have more info but it's from the gifset "Everywhere I'm looking now I'm surrounded by your embrace" I'd really like to know where that is from and I must add this blog is absolutely fantastic, it's just pure awesomeness for a fan of the Americans. xoxo

I can literally not stress how long it took me to find this video. FX does amazing promos but their youtube organisation sucks. 

Here is the teaser trailer you are looking for 

Here is my other favourite s2 trailer for my future reference 

And thank you for the compliment, I really appreciate that :D
