mpho3's rating of the film The Americans

One of the few series in which I was hooked from the very first episode. I can't even say that of the holy Sopranos/Wire/Breaking Bad trinity. Fantastic scripting, stellar acting, brilliant use of music, and so relevant. Those who didn't experience the Cold War 80s won't relate as well, but it should still strike a chord with anyone following contemporary geopolitics or interested in the interpersonal.
