Screen Time

“That was the Harvey Wallbanger talking. Sorry.”

When middle-aged women go drinking 1981-style on The Americans. KGB agent Elizabeth Jennings a.k.a. Kerri Russell is 37, and her neighbor, Sandra Beeman, is played by Susan Miser, age 42. Looking good, ladies.

Of course, these are women heading into their second decade of (rocky, hence the husband-free drinking) marriage with teens at home so they probably seemed even older.

By the way, the Harvey Wallbanger made her talk about the only person she’d slept with other than her husband: a visiting Finnish professor in school.

I’m ordering a Harvey Wallbanger the next time I go out (have never had one–and my last attempt failed).
