5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, February 26, 2014
This review is from: The Americans Season 1 [HD] (Amazon Instant Video)
At first I was a little skeptical, having grown up in the 1980's all I remember is the fear. Lying in bed at night all my 10 year old brain could think about was, "Is tonight the night the nukes come? Are the Russians going to start WWIII THIS night while I'm asleep? WIll I wake up to the apocalypse in the morning? Will I wake up at all?" These thoughts were pervasive for my young years. Now I'm seeing what the other side felt and did. I find myself rooting for the "bad" guys. This period masterpiece has good dialog, great scenery that is pretty accurate (I have picked up a couple of out of place items. For example, when the Russian guy is buying tea and is set up by the FBI with the diamonds, there is an alarm system box on the wall just like the one in my house.) However, this did not take away from the story and I appreciated the story line, the cars, and the main characters. Stan is such an awful character this makes me root for the Russian spies. I plan on watching every episode that comes out. Hopefully it doesn't lose its magic.
