2 The Americans: The Complete First Season on Blu-ray/DVD: A riveting espionage thriller fused with a compelling domestic drama, The Americans was one of 2013’s truly great television experiences (no small feat, given the mountain of quality programming available last year). Starring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as KGB spies Elizabeth and Phillip Jennings, the series, created by former CIA officer Joe Weisberg, is set during the early days of the Reagan administration and at the height of Cold War paranoia. That period is mined as effectively as the Jennings’ tenuous marriage. Ahead of its second season premiere Feb. 26, the first season of The Americans arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on Tuesday, featuring behind-the-scenes vignettes and deleted scenes.
