The Americans: Season 3 (2015)
Critic Consensus: Family-driven drama and psychological themes propel The Americans' tautly drawn tension, dispensing thrills of a different ilk this season.

The Americans remains one of the best-written shows on television, and quite simply the best at the constructing intricate, layered plots. Every episode, every scene, gives the impression of a gun being cocked and placed carefully on a wall.
"The Americans" is a bleak show that ends each episode with heartbreak. It's also a thrilling, moving, clever show about human intimacy-possibly the best current drama out there.
One of The Americans' achievements is that you empathize with the despair of the adults, even as they gamble with the fate of the Earth.
I'm especially glad to see The Americans place more weight on Russell's Elizabeth, who has really surged to the forefront of this show.
Audience Reviews for The Americans: Season 3
Yet another very solid entry onto the show but it's becoming quite evident that it will never be able to surpass its solid quality. Maybe it's time to start thinking about wrapping up this soon, since the pace is too slow to go beyond 5 seasons and with such limited production values, it's better to end on a high note, than a low one. We're starting to thread on repetition here and that's never a good thing for a show that has very little audience.
