SDI is short for Strategic Defense Initiative. It was referred to by the term "Star Wars" because of the advanced nature of the system, which was intended to detect missile launches and use satellite-based lasers to destroy the missiles in flight. During its development it was found to be unworkable for a number of reasons, including accuracy and dispersion of lasers by atmosphere. This failure was a tightly-held secret. While various experts in the Soviet Union thought it would not be achievable, it had enough credibility - largely due to American posturing - that the U.S.S.R. diverted massive amounts of funds in projects to counter the threat. The success of "Star Wars" system was that it drove the Soviet Union to bankruptcy, forcing it into a position in which it not only lost the cold war but in which the communist system was overthrown. A key theme in the sixth season of The Americans was the juxtaposition of the KGB and the "old guard" against Gorbachev's progressive policies. Russia's attempt at American-style governance failed, providing an opportunity for the old guard to reassert itself. Vladimir Putin, the perpetual head of state of Russia, was of the old guard, being the former head of the KGB. See more »


This is supposed to be taking place in 1987 (there's a calendar on the wall at the travel agency) but there's a storefront manicure/pedicure salon next door to the travel agency offering Spa Pedicures. In 1987, you would have had to go to an upscale salon like Elizabeth Arden for a pedicure. There were no storefront salons then. See more »

Good episode, but I thought this is as good a place as any to mention that this series, as careful as it is usually is with the 80s period set decor, has never gotten one thing right--

The walls in most houses in the 80s were BEIGE. Cream, off-white, eggshell, sand.. whatever you want to call it. Each room wasn't painted a different tasteful dark color like you find now. The colorful walls is what you see in the show in all the houses and even in the hotel rooms which REALLY would be beige. I'm assuming it's an art department decision to set different moods, but it takes me out of the show often.

There. Off my chest. Good show 😁
