Tuesday at FX (US) 5 seasons Still Running
The Americans is a period drama about the complex marriage of two KGB spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington D.C. shortly after Ronald Reagan is elected President. The arranged marriage of Philip and Elizabeth Jennings, who have two children - 13-year-old Paige and 10-year-old Henry, 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.

Yes, I think also that The Americans is under rated. It doesn't have the fame/recognition it deserves. This is definetly one my favorite show. Keri Russell & Matthew are just perfect.

July 2016

Season 4 has totally solidified it.

Totally agree with you

Whoever thought about Kerry Russel for this role is a genius!
She embodies this Russian spy to perfection with the right amount of strength and vulnerability.
I never doubted her talent since I had never watched anything she's done before ( not even Felicity) but I'm pleasantly surprised.
And Matthew Rhys is just as I imagined: Far from his role in Brothers and Sisters but very credible also.
What impresses me the most about this show is definitely the casting. Every single one of the main actors just fits perfectly. And The supporting characters such as Stan, Nina, Martha, Claudia.... all have interesting storylines with many layers.
It's very rare on a TV show.

If I had to describe the Americans, I would say that it reminds me of a more realistic version of Alias (since the show is based on historical facts during the Cold War between the U.S. And the Soviet Union).
And I know that one of the creator used to work for the CIA, which gives more credibility to the whole thing.
It is not my favourite show but I would definitely recommend it to whoever wants to follow a good story with complex characters.

I'd agree o almost every thing you wrote but have one question: How would you know if Kerry Russel realy embodies russian spy to perfection. Have you ever met one IRL?

May 2016

Great question @zardoz :)
What I meant is she is very believable in this role ( & again how would I know cause I never met one IRL). I would just say that compared to all the spies I've watched so far in movies and on Tv, she seems to be the realest one.
And what I meant especially is that her acting is perfect. Which I did not expect.
And the fact that the creators actually worked with ex spies to write this story and their role makes me believe that they may be closer to reality than what we think.
But good question. I like how your mind works :)

July 2016

Stan and Nina are great. But especially Martha, even in the first 3 seasons, was perfect! She really embodied the role of quiet, but smart career secretary.

What I like the most about the show is that the actors are really Russian and they speak Russian when they should and actually would.

Pilote très intéressant ! Ça semble un peu "mou" les 20 premières minutes, un peu confus (je ne connaissais pas le sujet de la série, j'ai regardé "au hasard") mais on se prend rapidement au jeu. Un peu à la Homeland ? Je ne pense pas non. C'est plus "torturé", moins extrémiste. Et la Guerre Froide, quel vaste sujet (des dizaines d'années d'espionnage, de contre espionnage, de chasse aux sorcières,...). En plus, une bande son très 80 (Genesis). Je me laisserai tenter par l'épisode 2, puis 3, puis.... Quel plaisir de voir un mec passer un coup de fil depuis une cabine téléphonique, de voir un gamin lire un BD, e une femme porter un jean's taille haute avec la grosse ceinture ! :)

Driver very interesting! It seems a bit "soft" the first 20 minutes, a little confused (I did not know about the series, I looked at "random") but we quickly took the game a little to the Homeland? I do not think. Is more "tortured" less extreme. And the Cold War, what about large (tens of years of espionage, against espionage, witch hunt, ...). In addition, a very 80's band (Genesis). I let myself be tempted by episode 2, then 3, then .... What a pleasure to see a guy take a call from a phone booth to see a kid reading a comic, e a woman wearing a jeans tall with the big belt! :)

On ne peut que lâcher un gros ouf de soulagement pour le coup, parce que finir sur la saison 3, sur ça... Non, ça aurait été incroyablement cruel x)

الحقيقة أني استغرب من قلة مشاهدين هذا المسلسل الاسطوري. عمل جبار وميزته أن مستواه الفني يتصاعد كل موسم.
الموسم الثالث برأيي يأتي في قائمة أفضل المواسم على مستوى المسلسلات الاميركية في سنة ٢٠١٥
الان اشاهد الموسم الرابع ومندهش

I am really surprised at the lack of viewers of this legendary series. Jabbar action and advantage that the technical level is rising every season.
In my opinion, the third season comes in the list of the best seasons on the level of the American series in 2015
Now I watch the fourth season and surprised

Recomendada.

A série consegue falar da guerra fria de forma imparcial.
Totalmente diferente das obras americanas que vendem o sonho americano e dão razões para todos os malfeitos dos Yankees.

Tomara que a temporada dois continue nessa batida.

The Americans es una serie que no recibe la valoración que merece. Tiene un buen guión, buenas interpretaciones y una muy buena reconstrucción de época. Sin dudas debería ser mucho mas popular pero mucha gente nunca la escuchó nombrar.

This is an impeccable series that definitely sits on my top 3 shows of 2014: great writing, exceptional acting, complex characters, tension and unwitting humour. Might be a slow start at first, but almost everything that happens serves a larger purpose. I seriously cannot wait for season 3 and I hope they can keep this up!

Indeed.

I remember when I fallow the series prwmier pilot andwatch it, withouth me knowing much about it. It had (still has) that sinister admosphere the whole chapter up until the last minute. I felt hooked right there, and I said.

"Shows like this, don't come much often, whoa"

It surely is an incredibly outstanding well written drama. And yes, it is underappriciated.
