- The Ringer: ‘The Americans’ Belongs to Paige Now

Which is what makes Paige so jarring, and polarizing, and invaluable: Her character alone seems to grasp how ludicrous and unsustainable all this is. The Americans strives for gritty realism, to avoid James Bond fabulousness and cartoonishness, but this is still a show about Russian spies living in total secrecy across the street from an FBI agent. She thinks it’s as bizarre as you do. It’s hard to watch her struggle; OK, fine, it’s a little irritating, too. She is objectively the character least equipped to survive in such a hostile, claustrophobic environment, and she’s acting like it. But she’s also the only character with a legitimate chance of surviving. I’m rooting for her, but do so at your own peril: If she actually makes it through this, she’ll be strong enough to conquer us all.

Pretty much, although I think you may have left out whatever it was that Henry was up to~

That recap was so good. So many serious things happened last season. This show might have some of the best pacing of all time. 45 more mins....

I still have my Americans bag that a gaffer mailed to a few people! I think it was Steve.

I would kill to get an update on Martha. Hope she's happy somehow.

It would be a 10 second clip of her crying into her bowl of borscht.

I assume with access from a cable sub.

Well I always assume I'll watch cable shows the day after they air online bumming of a relatives cable sub, but there is a site claiming it'll be streaming online same day. I'm skeptical, but of course you hope to be wrong for the half hour before the show starts.

Got it. Fx live, not through show listing.

"Pastor Tim" has basically become one of my favorite TV catchphrases in recent memory

for some reason it sounds hilarious. And Paige never stops saying it.
