Feb 19, 2021It was interesting to watch incompetent Americans and evil Soviets go head to head with some interesting reflections on the differences between the two
Nov 21, 2020I'm hooked. Interesting to see the point of view Russians are raised with vs. Americans.
Apr 27, 2020It has to build on what it's started to be a stepping stone, but it's still thrilling and intelligent to watch and see how the situations expand.
Oct 20, 2019Again watchable if there is nothing better to do and one is bored. KGB couple are successful in any damn thing they want, FBI and even CIA way behind ...
Jan 11, 2019Adding fuel to the fire, The Americans retains all the suspense and action of season one while enhancing the level of excitement... and wigs.
Sep 22, 2018The Americans second season solidified the series as one of televisions greatest dramas due to compelling storytelling and phenomenal performances.
Jan 11, 2018Brilliant series highly original and incredibly intriguing and engaging. Philip and Elizabeth Jennings seem like your average American couple. Married for nearly 20 years they have two children, run a travel agency and live in suburbia. However, they are masking a secret double-life: they are, in fact, Russian spies, planted in the US nearly 20 years previously. It is the early-1980s and the height of the Cold War, with Philip and Elizabeth at the forefront of the USSRs attempts to gain information on US activities and weaponry. Tasked with countering espionage and tracking down Soviet spies is a special division of the FBI. Stan Beeman is one of their brightest agents. He also happens to be the Jenningss neighbour Brilliant series highly original and incredibly intriguing and engaging. Just the concept telling a spy story from the point of view of the Soviets, the bad guys, is fascinating in itself and does add a dimension to the series. If we had a CIA couple posing as Russians during the Cold War Im not sure the story would be as novel or interesting. Very intriguing. The whole spy and counter-spy back-and-forth, the missions, the methods Philip and Elizabeth use to get information, the personas and disguises they adopt, the often fragile arrangements they have that can fall apart at the slightest slip of the tongue or the suspicions of someone and the FBIs similar methods make for very interesting watching. Throw in the fact that, like any parents or couples, they have family issues too and these are not necessarily independent of their work. The family dynamic adds another level of intrigue and this ratchets up with every series. Then, just to spice things up even more, the Jenningss arch-nemesis is their neighbour! This adds even more intrigue and subterfuge. Excellent writing, with solid direction and great performances all round. Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys are particularly good in the lead roles.
Dec 08, 2017Not only is it still a good series, it got better as well. The series continues with following their family as Philipp and Elizabeth continue spying. It starts with a horrific death of another "illegal" couple they are friends with, and wraps the season up with finding out who and why the murder happened. They got over the whole "will they, won't they" situation and established the two main protagonists (are they protagonists if they are the Soviets?) who love each other. We get a bit more of a larger overarching story and the plots run together well. The only real negative I have is not the actress playing Paige, their 14 year old daughter, and not the actual writing, I just hate the whiny self-entitled privilege that she works from. That is a good writing thing, but its the part of the series that drives me nuts. Pros: This is still better than Homeland, and a great thriller. Cons: I still hate angsty 14 year old drama.
Aug 27, 2017Watching the first series was hard to stomach itself. The second has put me off completely. Very unrealistic portrayal of family life in general and also silly how they have time to live separate lives.
Jul 15, 2017Husband is hooked too!
