| From stem to stern, remarkable television
The Americans is an intense, emotional, vibrant, humane, and sad look at the espionage game. The acting is always great-particularly by Matthew Rhys-and the show remains well-plotted and compelling throughout its run. The only espionage writer who wrote novels like this was Graham Greene. Like Greene's Fiction, The Americans deals with characters who are always morally compromised, always embroiled in banal personal dramas, and always worn down by the decisions they've had to make. But don't just take my word on it. Watch it. It's worth it.
