News & Interviews for The Americans: Season 3
The Americans is only getting better with age, answering its questions as it builds upon them -- even if the solutions don't come easy.
Comrades the Jennings may be, but Elizabeth is first among equals, and The Americans is the story of her antiheroism above all.
The Americans remains one of prime time's best series, the only negatives at this point being how complicated the plotting is, to the degree at which we almost need a flow chart to keep up. It's a headache, but a great one to have.
The Americans also remains a sharp, emotionally rich portrait of the politics of family life. You can fully enjoy the story without following the espionage material closely.
The Americans remains the best show on TV about family -- and, you know, the best show on TV -- because it is both tender and unflinching in its examinations of lies big and small, "good" and bad.
The close calls are starting to feel a little redundant, but the looming human drama in season three of The Americans should keep it near the top of the spy pack.
The Americans still has those artfully shot scenes that leave you nervously glancing over your shoulder. It still has the deeply felt performances. And, if our intel is correct, it's still getting better.
The Americans locates a stirring balance between brooding, heated familial melodrama and equally taut, often lethal procedures of its infectious spy drama.
Based on the first two hours of Season 3, The Americans won't be losing the title of "Best Drama on TV" anytime soon.
I really enjoyed it, and as someone who was born around the time this show takes place, I actually appreciate the pacing being a little slow, as I often have to research things I didn't know about, which is most everything on this show, history-wise.
My mind was so geared up for technical plot answers to last season's dangling threads that I was blindsided by the basic pleasant feelings that came along with our reentry into the The Americans' world.
Audience Reviews for The Americans: Season 3
May 11, 2020The third chapter of the Americans opens new doors for more twists and turns in the mentally exhausting world of Cold War spies. 4.75
Apr 10, 2020One of my favorite seasons of TV ever. Tense and emotionally gripping throughout. Do Mail Robots Dream of Electric Sheep? is one of many high points.
Oct 25, 2019Much better than previous seasons, at least some pitfalls of being kgb illegals are portrayed , relatively more realistic experience compared to previous seasons.
Jan 20, 2019A horrible show in that it forces viewers, if they persist in watching the sad events, to identify with psychotics with little relief; an unhealthy experience.
Jan 11, 2019Family-driven drama and psychological themes propel The Americans' tautly drawn tension, dispensing thrills of a different ilk this season.
Sep 23, 2018The Americans third season sees the show continuing to improve and reach new heights.
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 21, 2017I should just slap my review for season 2 here, but multiply everything by five. The story is still really good. The writers are obviously hitting their strider. Phillip and Elizabeth are even more interesting to watch, along with Frank Langella who is back as a handler for them. During the season it covers how Nina may be able to get out of prison in Russia, Stan deals with his divorce and with both Phillip and Elizabeth pushing back and forth over what to tell Paige. While everything positive is great, I am absolutely hating the Paige stuff. That was almost enough for me to stop watching. Her fits may be "teen" for tv, but in my experience in hard circumstances that would have been done by now. Pros: writing, most of the acting (honestly all of the acting) and just overall still getting better. Cons: The angst has been kicked up to an 11 for the teenager... Not liking that.
May 30, 2017super smart, great writing, great acting. made me thought of the moral dilemnas well after i watched it
Aug 25, 2016Every season of The Americans is a season of the greatest television ever made.
