Very good start with some shocking scenes emphasising the characters and the situation they're in. Maybe the start of a long term plot as well.

Was a good first episode, wasn't expecting the hotel scene to be so grim, also that bit with the Iranians in the restaurant showed just how far Philip will go to cover his tracks.

Paige walking in on them having sexy time :lol: :fp:

Good start to the season. It sure escalated quickly.

I am hoping we don't have more "off again on again" nonsense.

A more low key episode this week reacting to last weeks action. Philip not wearing gloveswas weird. A ton of 80s references this week.

On the renewal front, a formal third-season renewal of The Americans is expected soon, he said. “We look forward to it being on our schedule for quite some time,” he said, later adding that he was “confident in the [show's] long-term prospect.” While the series’ live numbers may have dipped, it has been a DVR growth story. The Americans‘ DVR numbers are “unlike anything I have ever seen,” Landgraf said. “Live viewing is essentially just 20% of whole.”

Good news. Think the 2nd season has been slightly better than the 1st, smoothed out some of the rough edges.

Just reminded me that I'm a few episodes behind. Haven't been enjoying this season as much as the first.

Me to, there are too many other better shows on ATM. This is sort of a soap.

Great episode this week, maybe Matthew Rhys's Emmy submission episode.

Very good episode this week, got quite a few things to deal with in the finale so I doubt it'll all get concluded.

Awesome finale - Surprised by the kid killing his family and all the backstory to it. Now they're trying to get Paige to do it as well. Shame about Nina but hopefully she'll be back as they're lacking characters.

Critics have been loving it, weird that a lot of GRcade appear to be sleeping on it.

what has been the best season on TV so far this year.

FX’s period spy drama “The Americans” went to a new level this season, going from a very good show to one of the very best on television

Though The Americans’ first season was hugely successful creatively and critically, the second season started attracting the kinds of raves that are usually reserved for the upper echelon of TV dramas.

Really need to get around to watching season 2 of this...

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Awesome season, better than the first (which was still pretty damn good).

I really hope Paige doesn't react badly to her parents' jobs, which I assume will be revealed to her next series. Too many characters revealing secrets have lately been greeted with scorn and fear. I'd love it if she reacted differently, at least in the end. I expect there to be slammed doors and whatnot first.

Channel 4 or the BBC need to pick it up, pronto. Can't wait for this to return. :wub:

Returns tonight in the US.

Critics



Throughout its stellar first two seasons, FX’s Cold War spy drama “The Americans” has been incredibly adept at creating tension. Whether using spy-craft action set-pieces or more human conflicts among characters, “The Americans” is often an edge-of-your-seat series. With that said, the early episodes of Season 3 ratchet the tension up another level.

http://www.columbusalive.com/content/st ... -ever.html
The juxtaposition of domestic banality with covert, often erotic peril has never been more unsettling.

The Americans returns for a third season packed with tension, raw-nerve melodrama and enough levels of ambiguity, moral and psychological, to satisfy the most gluttonous appetite for the stuff. With, in short, all that has distinguished this series from its beginning.

This might be a philosophical season of The Americans, but like any good countercultural force, it still gets its thrills from sex and violence. B+
