Critic reviews for The Magic of David Copperfield V: The Statue of Liberty Disappears

It got ugly on The Americans last night. Literally. Their marriage pushed to its limits by the circumstances surrounding Martha's departure, Philip and Elizabeth Jennings' masks of suburban/Soviet sexiness slip, revealing something fearsome and repellent.
