In the Reagan era A pair of deep-cover Soviet spies masquerade as a typical American couple whose children, neighbors, coworkers and friends are completely unaware of their activities. The series conjures up the tensions that arise from such a situation. I bought this series because I liked the non-nonsense acting, the focus on details that makes the story credible and the flawless juxtaposition of ordinary American middle-class life and the twists and turns linked with a spying activity. The actors are utterly convincing in both roles although they occasionally have to "switch their masks" in a matter of seconds. Solid, classic story-telling.
