    Keri Russell is Outstanding!

    It is very rare that you have a near perfect episode, especially of a series on commercial television. But FX has done it here with The Americans. It is nearly flawless. Great mind candy for the thinking person, with something to come back to after the first viewing. I credit the success of The Americans to 3 things: Great script, great music, and Keri Russell! The script is adult, no-nonsense storytelling built on an original premise, the Cold War. Those of us who are old enough remember this period, a period of the Russians-are-coming hysteria that was second only to the Civil Rights movement the decade before. An era very under- represented in film and ignored on the small screen, comes to life for a new generation. Of course this era would be nothing without the music of this time and again, The Americans is flawless with that, the set, music, cinematics and of-course acting! Must mention these disguises too, which are not your silly, unrealistic mission-impossible disguises. No, the disguises in The Americans are really disguises and surprisingly, with very little disguise. What makes these disguises work for the Jennings is that the Jennings can act. With each disguise is a new personality. Elizabeth, played by Keri Russell, is special! Russell takes the art of disguise to the next stage. she is authentic, smart, gorgeous and just plain savage! Keri Russell is wonderfully dangerous, stellar, great looking and I can't get enough of her! I think Keri Russell's presence in this series is the key to everything. Only she could have this cold outside look hiding a wounded soul that hangs on to what she believes in. It is not only about the plot, but also the human toll the Cold War claimed in its path. I think the series is very well rounded in terms of casting and writing. It has a rhythm that keeps the audience on edge. The series has everything: originality, se x, espionage, suspense...did I say originality?

    Love the series, watched it on TV and just had to add it to my collection. Series is about a couple from Russia that didn't know each other at the beginning but are now pretending to be an American family with 2 kids. Series continues with various missions that at times including killing people or having relations with them to get information to pass on to the Russians. They do what they need to but are struggling as the show continues.

    A thoughtful look at personal responsibility

    This television series is one of my favorites. Set in the Cold War, this series looks at what deep cover Soviet spies who are pretending to be an American family have to go through in order to operate and live in America and yet stay true to their Soviet ideology. Especially compelling is the conflict the spy parents have with their oldest US born child, who is essentially just an all American kid who discovers that her parents are anything but all American.

    This series has been one of my favorites each season since it began. The writing is top notch. The cars, costumes, hair styles and clothing are historically accurate. There are interesting little details which add to the authentic feel like the introduction of digital encrypted radios in the cars of the FBI agents in season 3 that becomes a plot point for the main characters during a mission.

    The Americans is a Very Good series dealing with the Cold War and domestic espionage. It is well written and acted, except, at times in my opinion, just a bit over the top. While not on the level of John Le Carre (Tinker,Tailor,Soldier,Spy) (A Spy who came in from the Cold), this is nonetheless top notch Spy-Thriller-Espionage Cold War - Fare.

    I am a huge fan of The Americans. It is a great tv show with amazing characters and plots. Homeland has been my favorite spy and espionage tv show, but The Americans has surpassed it because of this amazing third season. Everything starts coming together and it is incredible to see. Acting and directing is still top notch. Highly recommended.

    Continuation of a great series

    The story of two Soviet spies living in the US during (roughly) the Reagan administration. Not highly believable for the most part, but highly entertaining. You are kept on the edge of your seat wondering what crazy thing will happen next. The main actors are excellent. Other actors will have you hoping they get strangled.

    The continuation of this incredible series goes by so quickly you will be wondering why you had to wait so long for it to come out only to finish all episodes in a weekend. Extras are nice, but they are just extras. A great story for anyone who likes spies, history, or deception. When does season 4 drop?
