The Americans is a terrific show. It concerns the lives of two KGB agents living in the early 1980's
U.S.A. They are the perfect model of the American dream. However they are dedicated to the Soviet cause
and are involved in espionage, kidnapping, sabotage, blackmail and murder. This show can be very dark.
On the other side we see the life of an F.B.I. counter intelligence agent who is equally dedicated to catching
the Russians.
The plots are gripping, the acting superb, the writing brilliant and the attention to detail regarding life in the 1980's
Is wonderful.
This show is on a par with Breaking Bad, not quite as good but very close. It really is a terrific show and after a couple of episodes you will be hooked.

Everybody lies in this powerful series: the husband to his wife, the parents to their children, the beautiful couple to its neighbourhood, etc.. The beauty of it is that it has hardly anything to do with the supercharged plot and its iconic family of spies posing as typical middle-class American family. Which means that you can enjoy the superb show without having to follow the intricate espionage story. The script has been so strongly textured that you can follow the twists and turns of a modern family's life and thereby forget that the beautiful couple is "not for real".
'The Americans' ranks easily among the best TV shows I have ever watched: remarkable psychological bent, strong writing, textured production values, outstanding acting and an unrelenting care for the details that make it perfectly realistic.
From what I hear, 'The Americans' is not a crowd-pleaser. Too bad. I only wish we had more psychological dramas on TV and less violence and gore.

There are four currencies in the lives of the characters in 'The Americans': lies, sex, causes and murder.

Lies first. As another reviewer has so shrewdly observed, everyone lies to everyone else in this show all the time. Parents to their kids, kids to parents, neighbors to neighbors, employers to employees, employees to the bosses, husbands to wives, wives to husbands, husbands to mistresses, wives to honey trap targets, and on and on. There are so many lies being told all the time it's a miracle that anyone gets any spying done, ever.

Next, sex. There is so much of this that its almost inconceivable that any of the characters would have any time for their own lives, nor the double lives that most of them lead, far less the triple lives that some of them juggle.

Then there is the currency of causes. There's the Soviet cause that our Russian family planted in Washington DC utterly believe in. There's the dyed in the wool American cause the FBI characters embrace and then there are the infinite shades of doubt and uncertainty experienced by both sides when their faith is shaken.

And finally there is the currency of murder. This seems to be a double-edged sword for both factions on account of their ludicrous and respective enthusiasm for murdering not only the opposition, but also their own team.

This all makes 'The Americans' sound like a confusing mess. Surprisingly, it isn't. You end up liking both sides and also seeing both sides point of view. What this show makes abundantly clear is that there are no winners. What there is, is much madness, mayhem and chaos inherent in the state funded antics of both sides. The opposing forces - KGB and FBI - tend to cancel each other out.

Excellent! Although this is superficially a spy story (and often moves along with considerable zip like a conventional thriller), it also looks closely at the relationships of the major characters with each other and their perceived identities. It's also a fascinating look back at the Cold War era and the 'tradecraft' that was used before computing, mobile phones & other electronic advances changed everything.

The actors are all very good but I save special commendation for Matthew Rhys who is quite brilliant.

more psychological depth, more pathos, more cold war, and then secret projects, forbidden experiments, illegal armies, state of the art technology. a very good cut of the cold war. less bombastic than lost but much better structured

Bigger and bolder than season 1, the new season of The Americans has really found its feet. The stakes are higher and the risks to their family and country have never been so dangerous.

Starting with the brutal murder of an ally and friend and then escalating into a huge murder mystery The Americans season 2 never fails to deliver big. It remains grounded and gritty but has heightened tension throughout. Supporting characters are never safe and right to the very end it is questionable as to whether or not any of the Jenns family will escape unscathed.

The domestic side of things has really heated up too giving Paige more to do and growing her character, Stan's personal life is also taking a battering and some tough decisions lay ahead.

Where season 2 really succeeds is in its unpredictability. It never takes the easy route out. Just when you think it is going one way it takes another turn. With a final episode sting in the tail it certainly leaves you wanting more. Here's hoping for a third season in what is becoming one of the most gripping dramas on telly.
