Popular Netflix show inverts good and evil 

Philip and Elizabeth Jennings are two KGB spies in an arranged marriage who are posing as Americans in suburban Washington, D.C., shortly after Ronald Reagan is elected president. The couple have two children, teenager Paige and preteen Henry, who are unaware of their parents' true identities.

The American TV series (2013-2018) has won the Golden Globe Award for best dramatic series for 2019. Six seasons on TV and a Golden Globe Award.   Popular indeed. Thank goodness it wrapped after its sixth season last year.

I start with the premise that mass media is a vehicle for Satanic messages.  The most important is the imperative to invert good and evil.  The Americans TV series demonstrates this concept.

This married couple are Russian agents.  They pretend to be a suburban American family in the 1980s.  Their children are props in this facade of American normality.  Why?  They were ordered to get married and have children.  As agents, they follow orders, of course.  Obedience to authority is another message embedded in the script.  Never defy Moscow's orders.  Satanism likes obedience.  While the couple commits murder, prostitution, seduction, blackmail and anything else ordered by their Moscow handlers, the audience is supposed to care about the feelings of these two. 

The plot always includes scenes where the couple begins to like each other.  This is an inversion of a normal relationship.  You start a relationship with someone you like, right?  Not in this series.  Marriage and family are inverted.  As portrayed here, marriage and family are fake.  It is an act.  In spy tradecraft, this is called "your cover." The only imperative is obedience to Moscow's orders.  Nothing else matters.

The wife agent lectures her kids about being honest with each other.  While she's a secret assassin and prostitute.  She disapproves of her daughter attending church.  Of course.  Religion must be disparaged as a Satanic goal.  She tells her son to limit his video game addiction.  Of course he defies her parental authority and sneaks into a neighbour's house to play as much as he wishes.  The kid does what he wants. Screw Mom. This is shown as normal behaviour.  "Do what thou wilt" as Satanic imperative.

Audiences like the dramatic tension, the music, the multi-layered plot.  This is considered to be great TV.  As discussed by Henry and, what are the underlying messages beneath the high production values?

I suggest this program portrays intentional Satanic messages.
