The Americans
am i the only one digging this show?! it's been renewed for a second season and i hope it stays that way.

the subject matter is certainly something we've yet seen explored in television drama and it's really quite riveting.

I caught the first episode ad I really enjoyed it. The storyline is very good. But I can never remember to watch (I have no dvr) so usually I wait til tv shows come out on DVD. I'm looking forward to seeing more.

Catching up. It is quite good, the plot is definitely surprising, with the twists and turn. The style recreation in clothes and furniture is very very good. It's the only "period" show after Mad Men that I liked.

I've watched the first three episodes and really enjoyed it. I plan to watch more, I just haven't gotten around to it yet!

This show is amazing. I love the plot and the cast. They are making me believe that it's happening in 80'.

I finally caught up with the last few episodes and now the season finale is coming up this week. i'm placing bets in my own mind about who's getting killed off.... nina?

The narrative is really engaging but the dialogue isn't as sharp as I'd hope it to be. I still don't think any of the subsequent episodes are as strong or exciting as the pilot. I'd love their use of Fleetwood Mac during the chase season and Phil Collins at the end.

now that's how you want to see a finale....again,kudos to the creator and writer of the show...

btw,does anybody else not love margo martindale? she always plays the most interesting characters on tv. they have this sweet matronly appearance but are anything but sweet....somewhat cold and ruthless. you don't love her character on this show but she knows how to play them to a fault.

so annoying that the show nor it's lead actors got any kind of emmy nominations. margo got a nod for guest star as 'claudia' but generally such a criminal ignorance of what a great show this really is and fantastic acting.

^ & main title theme music.. but that's it I still have not seen the whole show but from what I did watch, I figured it would have way more nominations.

to be honest,it should have had a nod in both lead actor categories for keri and matthew and a supporting nod to noah emmerich for that stoic portrayal of the FBI agent,stan beeman.
