Critic reviews for IHOP
The level of confidence for a show like this to have such an intense focus on skillfully handled conversations makes me so excited for what's to come.
"IHOP" probably isn't going to quiet this season's skeptics, but I thought it was the strongest episode of The Americans in a while, maybe of the whole season.
Digging deep inside after watching The Americans Season 5 Episode 9, I've now come to the conclusion that the lesson to be learned here is that the country makes the man (and woman).
Not everything goes awry for "IHOP," however, and just by its merits as being an episode of The Americans, it's quite good.
Things got off to a good start in the opening credits: And Frank Langella. That wasn't even the best news: It was Frank Langella and Alison Wright, Gabriel and Martha, reunited for a doleful scene in her Moscow apartment.
