I get why some critics call it one of the best shows of all time.

This season really does resonate a lot with today... And it's wonderful ground, and the episodes are really interesting.

The series has always invested itself in the bonds of family and partnership, yet season six feels gloomier and more doom-laden than its precedents.
December 28, 2018
The Americans will always be one of the greatest television shows ever but...[the] series finale was not one of its greatest moments.

In this final season, the stakes are raised with a piling body count. Let's just say this is one show which finishes stronger than it started.

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

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.

It explores the consequences of deception and ideology on characters we can't help rooting for.

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.

A role model for any television series. [Full review in Spanish]

The Americans, like its protagonists, has been in disguise, a searching psychological drama dressed up as a kicky action play.
May 23, 2018
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.

This terrific series promises to end with a triumphant bang - don't miss it.

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.
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.

The Americans, menacing as ever in its reserve, won't spell out whether it's a charmed totem or a cursed amulet.
