Thread: The Americans finale

    The Americans finale

    Anyone else disappointed with the way The Americans ended?

    I was sure Elizabeth was going to get shot and killed, at least, and maybe Paige as well. As it neared the end, I thought maybe Paige would find Claudia with a self-administered bullet in the head. If nothing else, I expected a more dramatic ending ... not just a slow crawl to the end, with the two spies settling down peacefully in Russia.

    These series have a habit of ending badly, and this one was no exception.
    If someone blows up a school with a bomb they go after the bomber ... if someone shoots up a school they go after the gun.

    A privilege is just a right that has been taken away by government.

    Political correctness is cowardice wrapped in a lie.

    It was a pretty good series, running 6 seasons on FX. A little dark, as you'd expect a spy story set in the Cold War era to be, and maybe a little too sympathetic toward the spies themselves. There was also a good deal of violence involved as these two plied their trade.

    Interestingly, the series was based on a pair of real Russian spies operating here in the U. S. during that time, so it's not totally far-fetched.

    If you get a chance to binge it on Netflix or whatever, it's probably worth the effort.
