Audience Reviews for The Americans: Season 4

  • Nov 21, 2020
    How strange it is to root for people who are actually spying on my country. That's how good the writers of this show are.
  • Oct 28, 2019
    More engaging and entertaining than previous seasons, with some thrill and suspense. At this point one starts to hate the kgb spies lead couple actually with visible psychopathic tendencies, more so the lady with the sinister smile ... hope this does not end up glorifying the same in coming seasons ...

  • Sep 24, 2018
    Do I really need to keep saying it at this point the Americans is the best drama on television.
  • May 25, 2018
    The Americans gets better every season.
  • Mar 22, 2018
    this is the best season of the best drama on tv. the writing , the complexity of the pl;ot and character development are superb.
  • Jan 11, 2018
    The best season to date, and that says a lot. The show is at a stage when the writers could easily resort to formula, retreading the same basic plot, just with different characters, missions and other devices. Yet it is as unpredictable, fresh and engaging as ever. Rather than keeping certain characters whose arc has run its course around just for familiarity sake, they are removed from the series. New characters and intrigues appear, while simmering sub-plots become important threads. It is far from formulaic.
  • Dec 21, 2017
    This is sadly the first season I have seen that has slid backwards. The acting is still great, so no problems there. However the storylines were a lot less interesting. Maybe its because the renowned character actress Margo Martingale didn't have as big an influence this season. Let me say that Frank Langella was a high point in the season. He is older now, but still able to push through with his acting and make me feel like he is a real person. The low points came once again with Paige, the daughter. Now that they have told her who they are, they waffle around telling her no when she throws temper tantrums. That whole situation sucks and I try and fast forward sometimes through those scenes. The other areas overall was Phillip's fascination with EST, and more focus on the Rezidentura. None of those were entertaining and I don't really care to know the people. Pros: Frank Langella is still keeping it real. Cons: Slower stories with no payoff, and the whole daughter situation. Can we please move on yet?
  • Jul 27, 2017
    Dropped off a little bit from the first 3 seasons, but still the best show going around
  • May 10, 2017
    I absolutely love this show..It's my favorite
