- SORT BY:
While the first episode was slow-moving at times, the second episode was filled with much more action, while continuing to develop what was interesting from the first episode.
It was definitely an improvement of the first episode, which is saying something since the first one was quite good.
I hope the show continues to move in this direction!
Tops the pilot
I love the pilot, but this raises the stakes even further. No easy task.
An impossible mission made the tension unbearable, all while believably developing the relationship between our two Russian spies and their American children.
Noah Emmerich was awesome again - it can't be overstated how important his character is to this show. Without an American agent, it would be too difficult to side with Russian spies. Instead we get likable characters on both sides of the struggle. Pumped for more.moreless
The second episode of The Americans really showcases why we love the edginess of FX dramas so much, and how even a predictable outcome, can still be preceded by an entertaining show.
I still think the acting is not quite up to par with some of television's elite dramas, but this series has me intrigued. This episode showed why this series has potential because it blurs the line between good and evil, and makes the protagonists put in those moral quandaries.moreless
