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.

That's right

March 2017

Totally agree with you

April 2018

I agree. I fight all my friends on this, they all stopped watching in mid second season. I think the third and fourth are the best so far, with their roller coaster last minute on both finales.

April 2018

Extremely under rated great series

May 2018

For once I would love to see the FBI win an arrest their prey. It would seem more realistic. At the end Beeman's response would be after capturing despise and looking them in the eyes this is what makes America great again.

September 2015

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.

May 2018

I've never seen her in a better role other than the one she played in "The Upside of Anger" with Kevin Costner

March 2016

Assolutamente una delle migliori serie nel panorama televisivo di oggi ,che purtroppo, non riceve minimamente l'attenzione che merita.....

Absolutely one of the best series in today's television landscape, which unfortunately, not least given the attention it deserves .....

“ underrated” means that it doesn’t get the hype it deserves. I think you misunderstood that meaning.

May 2018

Stealyourface No, that's what I meant. This show is really good but unfortunately not very popular.

May 2018

This show will be truly missed. Not sure what I’d do without this show. The cast, , the directing, the production, the storyline is just exceptional. There wasn’t one episode that was bad. Thank You FX for giving us a show that was timeless!

sem sombra de dúvidas é a melhor série sobre espionagem e guerra fria.

Without a doubt is the best series on espionage and cold war.

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

Assino embaixo. Vi as 3 primeiras temporadas no Netflix e depois tive que baixar a 4ª, 5ª e 6ª. Para mim está no nível da minha série top Breaking Bad.

February 2013

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! :)

May 2016

Moi j'apprécie toujours mais je pensais qu'une saison de plus était suffisante vu l'état actuel des choses.. C'est déjà bien d'avoir timé la fin tout de même on va pouvoir commencer à se diriger vers les intrigues finales, de fortes chances que ce soit une fin dramatique..

Felizmente uma produção absurda que, ao lado de The Leftovers, podem ser consideradas os supra-sumos da década. Por isso, já pode declarar o fim da época de ouro da TV norte-americana pois com o fim da saga dos russos disfarçados, vai ser difícil achar outra série tão bem feita e tão incisivamente profunda como essa última. Que série amigos, que símbolo dramatúrgico é esse! Muito obrigado Keri Russell e Matthew Rhys por seis grandes anos!

Luckily an absurd production that, next to The Leftovers, can be considered the super-sumos of the decade. So you can already declare the end of the golden era of American TV because with the end of the saga of the Russians in disguise, it will be difficult to find another series as well made and as incisively deep as the latter. What a series of friends, what a dramaturgical symbol this is! Many thanks Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys for six great years!

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.

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.
