The Americans: The Day After | S4-E9 Review

The Americans: The Day After | S4-E9 Review

There are moments in television history that stick with you. I will never forget when MASH had it’s series finale, or Cheers, or Night Court. I will always remember the first night of Star Trek: The Next Generation. For many people, The Day After was one of those television moments. I don’t remember it at all, but ...

The Americans: The Magic of David Copperfield V: The Statue of Liberty Disappears | S4-E8

The past few episodes of The Americans season 4 have been extremely tense. There has barely been any let up of the tension level, and most episodes have been “edge of your seat” the whole way through. Under that type of pressure, something had to give, and in episode 8, The Magic of David Copperfield V: The Statue of ...

The Americans: Travel Agents | S4-E7 – Review

Travel Agents, the 7th episode of the 4th season of The Americans, was the height of worry and stress. After Martha ran out of the safe house last week, we are left with an insane man hunt where the FBI, Phillip, and Elizabeth are all on the hunt for Martha.

The Americans: The Rat | S4-E6 – Review

The Americans: The Rat | S4-E6 – Review

Some shows on TV can be like a rollercoaster. They have the stressful parts where you climb up the peak, knowing the fall is coming. They have the adrenaline rush where you go over the peak and fly down the other side, they have the fun, easy parts as you whip along heading to that next climb. The Rat, the 6th episode ...

The Americans: Clark’s Place | S4-E5 – Review

The Americans: Clark’s Place | S4-E5 – Review

I am not sure that it is fair to call The Americans a “drama”. Sure it is dramatic, yet “drama” doesn’t seem to be the best way to describe it. Maybe we should call it an anxiety show. In Clark’s Place, the anxiety level builds to amazing heights for almost all of the main characters. Clark’s Place opens with ...

The Americans: Chloramphenicol | S4-E4 Review

The Americans: Chloramphenicol | S4-E4 Review

Chloramphenicol was an emotional rollercoaster of an episode for The Americans. Named after the antibiotic, Chloramphenicol, that the Jennings are taking to (hopefully) keep them from getting Glanders, this whole episode seemed to be about being on the edge of getting caught. Unfortunately, not everyone made it out ...

The Americans: Experimental Prototype City of Tomorrow | S4-E3

Things keep getting worse for the Jennings. Experimental Prototype City of Tomorrow is the full name of Disney’s EPCOT (a theme park in Walt Disney World Florida). EPCOT was made to showcase a hope for the future. At this point, the Jennings are losing hope for the future. The episode opens undercover, if you will. ...

The Americans: Pastor Tim | S4-E2

The Americans: Pastor Tim | S4-E2

The second episode of the fourth season of The Americans, Pastor Tim, raises the tension and paranoia of the last episode to new heights. For a show to hold this level of tension across the entire run time of an episode is a feat in itself, but to do it across multiple storylines and character arcs is amazing to ...

The Americans: Glanders | S4-E1 Review

The Americans: Glanders | S4-E1 Review

Oh Comrades, it feels like it has been forever since we spent time with the Jennings. It is good to be back with the best 80’s family since the Seavers (and to be honest, I think they may have been KGB as well.). Glanders isn’t exactly the most exciting way to start off a season, but hey, they had a lot of stuff to ...

The Americans Season 4 Promo – Here Comes Trouble

The Americans returns to our screens on March 16th. We started getting teasers for the 4th season a few weeks ago.
