'The Americans' Open Thread: In The Air Tonight | ThinkProgress

'The Americans' Open Thread: In The Air Tonight | ThinkProgress:

" I’m excited about the potential of The Americans for a great many reasons: its use of geopolitics to ask questions rather than assign solutions, its sick sense of humor, its portrait of domestic life, its louche use of eighties music."

The music was my least favorite part of the show: but I dislike, in general, dramatic resolution by pop song, which is the common strategy in TV drama. The best part of the show is the focus on relationship in the marriage, created after all by the KGB for practical reasons and now almost 20 years old, with 2 kids! Lots of room for this series to screw up, as they usually do, but so far, so good, in my book.
