Re: The Americans

Episode 6 had a weak start, because it didn't take a genius to instantly figure out what's the deal with the kidnapping... but I liked how they got their revenge and I loved the unexpected twist with the mole storyline. smile

PS. One of the things I love about this show is that the kids aren't total morons like in almost all other shows... but that's probably because it takes place in pre-Internet era. wink

Re: The Americans

Well, this is classic and I don't even expect anything else. I remember being genuinely surprised when in the movie Orphan they actually used real Estonian instead of labelling everything Eastern Europe-y Russian.

That was a horrible translation (not just this scene).

Re: The Americans

Overall, I felt this episode was too much about drama and too little about spying as well. Drama is fine but I like the spy stuff.

Re: The Americans

A great penultimate episode and I expect nothing but a fantastic finale.

Re: The Americans

And the show delivered. For the last 15-20 minutes I was as if I was sitting on pins nad needles. Excellent.

Re: The Americans

Noice... Best new show I've picked up in a while. Really cool.

Re: The Americans

Very good finale, but I expected it to end with a bigger cliffhanger... or maybe it's just me spoiled by other dramas. tongue

Re: The Americans

Very good show overall and a nice final that doesn't goes too much on the Big badaboom for the sake of artifices and it was consistent with the rest of the serie in terms of pace, drama, etc.

Really a keeper.

Myka : You slept with her didn't you ?
Pete : Well... you... you told me to investigate ok ? So... she's unarmed.

Re: The Americans

Great! Glad it was renewed!

Re: The Americans

I catched up this weekend with this show really enjoyed what I've seen this far!

Re: The Americans

It's quite well done with a lot of period details pretty accurately rendered. Back then there were still a lot of true believers (in Soviet communism) in the US and a growing amount of despair and cynicism on the Soviet side. The "old generation" of Soviet patriots (from WW II, or "the Great Patriotic War" as they called it) was dying out and the young folks were less enthusiastic. The whole thing fell apart in 1991 and I expect that approaching event to play a larger role in the show as it goes on.

Re: The Americans

Yes, setting it in the 1980's was a great idea.

Re: The Americans

A very good return, can't wait for the rest of the season.

Re: The Americans

Re: The Americans

Jesus fucking Christ, breaking bones, pulling out teeth, can't remember when a show made me squirm in my chair.

Re: The Americans

They have really captured that "Boys In Brazil" vibe ("is it safe?")

Re: The Americans

Apparently it got picked up for a fourth season. I am rejoicing, one of the few cliche free shows I'm watching at the moment and really waiting for each episode.

That quote is from "Marathon Man" not "The Boys FROM Brazil"! Anyway, love the show.
