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.
We are gifted with another crushing Martha scene that, on its own, would probably propel "IHOP" to one of The Americans' greatest outputs.
