Not sure how many folks here are interested in TV series, but one excellent one I have followed since the beginning is "The Americans". It's about this "arranged marriage" Russian couple who come to the US in the early 1980s. They settle in Virginia, and subsequently have 2 children. But, of course, their primary mission is to perform spying activities. It has been on for 5 seasons, and the 6th, and final, season 6 premiere is in 2 days here in the US.

It is a fascinating series, and both Keri Russell and Mathew Rhys (they play the couple) go through numerous, numerous challenges. And an FBI agent, played very well by Noah Emmerich, lives right across the street from them!

In any event, in the last 2 days, there have been some very disturbing stories about Russia:

The "potential" connection of these events with the show is certainly mind boggling! And talk about timing of the season 6 premiere!

I live about 25 miles south of Seattle, so I can certainly understand the importance of this area. Yes, there is Boeing, along with a number of strategic military installations. One of those has nuclear submarines there.
