The Americans Reviews & Ratings

Wednesdays, 10:00 PM ET on FX

60 minutes

Created by Joe Weisberg, The Americans is a period drama about the complex marriage of two KGB spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington DC shortly after Ronald Reagan is elected President. The arranged marriage of Phillip (Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Russell), who have two children who know nothing about their parents true identity, grows more passionate and genuine by the day, but is constantly tested by the escalation of the Cold War and the intimate, dangerous and darkly funny relationships they must maintain with a network of spies and informants under their control. Complicating their relationship further is Phillip’s growing sense of affinity for America’s values and way of life. Tensions also heighten upon the arrival of a new neighbor, Stan (Emmerich), an FBI agent working in counter intelligence.

This show is so gripping! Completely held in suspense, love how the writers have now brought the daughter into the equation.

This is definitely one of the best shows currently on air, and I daresay one of the best ever. It is so careful with all its details, nothing seems rushed and is shot and acted and executed in such an elegant fashion that for an hour a week it makes you forget that you are watching a TV show.

Another excellent show from the people at FX. This show has a little bit of everything, drama, action, comedy, deception/intrigue. The acting is top notch. Overall, with the acting and the set design, the show has a very historically accurate feel to it which adds to the already immersive experience the show has cultivated through its rich character development.
