5.0 out of 5 stars is very close to what operating in Washington was like in the early 1980's
By Boris Badonov on March 6, 2016
Extremely well written story line that, based on my own experience as a Soviet agent, is very close to what operating in Washington was like in the early 1980's.

Of course watching it with my college age children is fun, because they were born after the cold war ended and have no recollection of the USA and the USSR being at odds with each other.

Very fun show to watch with your kids, especially if you were actually Russian spy!
