The Americans was something special, and Weisberg created something beautiful here. Hopefully, people realize what they've missed.

The Americans is a rare show that's both thrilling and also deeply perceptive about the inner lives of humans.

August 29, 2018
The Americans treated the theme of espionage with a sharpness rarely seen in the genre, which usually prefers nonstop action, stunning twists and "Red Sparrow"-style seduction.
August 20, 2018
It explores the consequences of deception and ideology on characters we can't help rooting for.
April 13, 2018
The Americans is still a show viewers can sink into and enjoy as an escape from the world without having to stress over any parallels.

This terrific series promises to end with a triumphant bang - don't miss it.
March 30, 2018
The Americans is full of great musical notes that carry complexity beyond pure sonic pleasure. But it's also just-plain fun sometimes.
March 27, 2018
It's layered, rich stuff, in keeping with the series' strengths, but Fields and Weisberg's intentional callbacks to events of early seasons adds even more complexity.

A role model for any television series. [Full review in Spanish]
March 29, 2018
One marvelous and heartbreaking hour into its 10-episode final season, a happy ending for anyone in the Jennings family seems so far away.
October 23, 2018
As fans themselves echo the chorus of "Don't Dream It's Over" as the show nears its finale, we should still feel lucky to have gotten six seasons of this truly special series.

The cinematography has always been top-notch. So has the acting. But there are hints here that all these characters, whose stubborn myopias we've come to know, are being forced to see differently.

The Americans talks far more eloquently about politics and history than I imagined it would when it started... Good for The Americans to have so presciently anticipated a cultural shift and so engagingly explored it.
March 28, 2018
Weisberg and Fields have... set the season at a pivotal enough point in history that everything is driving toward one day on the calendar, in a way the show has never quite matched before.

Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys are better here than ever before, and a real asset in a show that's long been dedicated to the art of showing, and not telling, when it comes to the emotional evolution of its characters.
March 23, 2018
It comes as no surprise that one of the greatest drama series in television history should come to its end as powerful as ever.
March 23, 2018
The magnitude of the espionage feels unconvincing, and the murder-happy episodes suggest they learned the wrong lesson from last year's too-slow burn. But The Americans gets more patient when it examines the widening cracks in the Jennings marriage.

March 27, 2018
The history itself is no spoiler; we know how the Cold War played out. But The Americans understands history as more than the record of which nations rise and fall. It's also the story of individual people for whom life goes on, or doesn't.
June 28, 2018
A stunningly non-explosive conclusion to its spy family saga, where all the violence was emotional and unrelenting.
