The Americans (Season 3)

I should just slap my review for season 2 here, but multiply everything by five.

The story is still really good. The writers are obviously hitting their strider. Phillip and Elizabeth are even more interesting to watch, along with Frank Langella who is back as a handler for them.

During the season it covers how Nina may be able to get out of prison in Russia, Stan deals with his divorce and with both Phillip and Elizabeth pushing back and forth over what to tell Paige.

While everything positive is great, I am absolutely hating the Paige stuff. That was almost enough for me to stop watching. Her fits may be “teen” for tv, but in my experience in hard circumstances that would have been done by now.

Pros: writing, most of the acting (honestly all of the acting) and just overall still getting better.

Cons: The angst has been kicked up to an 11 for the teenager… Not liking that.
