    THE AMERICANS Season 1 Episode 2 Recap | Collider

    There’s something missing in The Americans that I can’t quite put my finger on.
    And that's about it. I think it's the fact that, so far, the characters are only identifiable as 'the husband' or 'the wife'. It's hard to FEEL anything for either of them despite a lot of (awkward) attempts to humanize them. The husband has so far been the one closest to actually resembling a human being. Keri Russel has a LOT of work to do. Even the scenes with her daughter were almost painfully alien attempts to show some emotional side. I think the fact that both of them sleep with others with apparently more passion than they show each other doesn't help either. I think this show has tremendous potential, but I just think the cold in cold war is gonna toss viewers out before they have a chance to turn it around. Noah Emmerich is doing some nice work. So far, just a little icky in general. Gonna stick with it, and I hope the audience does too...but I can see this being a one and done interesting failure.

    And it seems like I say this every season, but DAMN if Justified isn't shaping up to be another great season. So different from past seasons, and that's a good thing.

    I love me some Justified, even when it is just filler, but the plots of Raylan vs. the boxer and Boyd vs. the preacher really felt like filler to get to 13 total episodes before getting back to the actual story of the skydiver and Boyd vs. Wynn.

    Alright, so is anyone still watching The Americans? I've got all the episodes on the DVR and am wondering if it's worth the time.

    Still watching...and yes. It is slowly coming together. Biggest gripe is that they are hard to like, especially the wife. But backstory and motivations are being revealed and it's coming together well. Margo Martindale(Mags Bennett) has just come on and that's NEVER a bad thing. The second episode ratings went down considerably but the DVR numbers were up/high so I think, barring a complete reversal/decline this gets at least another season. Really think this one is a grower and not a shower so far.


    In other Fx news...really people...YOU NEED TO WATCH LEGIT! If you like Louie you will like this in the fact that it has that weird 'is this a comedy' feel to it without it being derivative. The characters are likeable and there's some damned fine casting going on in the background. Max Gail(Barney Miller/DC Cab) and Damone from Fast Times at Ridgemont High were on last weeks episode. The stuff with DJ Qualls is pretty good too. There is a real sweet side to this show about a trio of...well...jerkoffs really.
