Thread: The Americans

  1. #1

    Default The Americans

    I'm kind of shocked to see that The Americans hasn't claimed it's own thread here yet. No more. I just finished an OnDemand binge of the show and am hooked. Swings with Homeland in the new drama territory. Keri Russell is a shockingly great bad ass (a la Claire Danes Homeland) and all of the characters seem terrifically cast. Anyway, getting the ball rolling to see if anyone else is watching, I was looking to discuss what just happened but I'll save the spoilers in case people just haven't had the chance or known to watch it yet. But there needs to be a thread so here it is. Discussion commence.

    Some spoilers here....



    Last night they pretty much went from liking each other, to loving each other, to hating each other....In the episode from the 13th, do you think Philip was purposely set up with his ex as another test of his loyalty? So that Margo could later plant that seed with Elizabeth? It’s pretty clear the KGB doesn’t want an ounce of any of Philip’s ideas of defection to rub off onto Elizabeth. I thought this episode was a little soon to bring up Philip’s lie about not sleeping with her though.

    Also, is FBI agent Stan being set up by his boss (arranging the apartment) to be caught fooling around with Nina? Yea, it sounds like an unwritten rule that all the agents sleep around with their informants, but it was kind of odd how Agent Gaad was so quick to help Stan out with this ‘safe house’.

    Oh, and the love making between Martha and Philip is fantastic.

    One of the highlights of the season for me is when their kids kicked the ass of that weirdo who picked them up while hitchhiking.

    you're fine, just thought i'd say something before you get trolled

    what was that cure song? nice usage.

    also loved the hitchhiker. i don't think the FBI boss is setting him up, Stan seems to be the only guy he really trusts.

    my favorite moment has been the SHOW THEM YOUR FACE scene lol

    Not sure I've watched a show week-to-week since last season of The American's. This is going to be tough, but tomorrow can't come soon enough.

    Hmm I'd say http://vod.fxnetworks.com/watch/theamericans but it doesn't seem to have Direct TV as an option. Unfortunately that isn't much help...


    The season premiere was pretty great.
