Storyline

Back in the USSR former KGB agent Oleg Burov, while chasing down the black market food chain is interrupted once again by senior KGB agents who quiz him intently on what he knows about FBI agent Stan Beeman's knowledge about the deceased KGB agent William's infiltration in the U.S. science labs for the highly contagious and infectious strains he was stealing for the Soviet Union. Oleg also is struggling with "mother issues" and he declines any assistance that his father offers to get him out of this jam.

Life imitates art
20 November 2017 | by billya47See all my reviews

The current unimaginable unfolding story of real life Russian meddling with American elections and possible daily influence over our government escalates this series relevance. There are bad guys who act good. Good guys who act bad. It's complicated - which is the art of this show.

Who really are the villains here? The Jennings are murderers, but it's hard to not root for them. It's hard after 5 seasons of involvement to not actually worry about the future of this family. Then you hear Reagan's comments, and you get just a hint of why the Russians are so afraid. It is in their DNA to have an enemy. Maybe ours as well? Elizabeth should be condemned for her brutal deeds, but we admire her dedication and commitment to a belief system. And while we admire her courage and dedication, we also see what placing ideology above humanity can do to a society and families.

Even now, our species has not evolved any further than the drama of "The Game of Thrones". We just have more diabolical weapons. The complexity of this series is what makes it a 9 for me.
