Not your usual kind of spy drama. It has a stronger focus on the political and international plot than the romance, which i like.
User Reviews for The Americans
This is a very, very good show. The acting is brilliant, as is the writing. I'm looking forward to seeing where the show goes in season three.
I have no idea why this show doesn't receive more praise, it is amazing yet subtle.
Probably one of this year's most underrated dramas, The Americans is one game of cat and mouse after the other. The second season definitely improves upon the first one
The Americans is a "Homeland" but in the opposite point of view. The Russians are here, sleeper agents have infiltrated the American continent. This family of Russian spies have to overcome and deceived each other for the greater good of Russia. There is death, sex, deception, betrayal, honor, murder, manipulation, infiltration and segregation. I recommend this show to any action period drama fanatic.
