‘The Americans’ Finished? Thank You for Killing My Favorite Show – James Poniewozik, The New York Times
Gives the show “the chance to end well.” Six seasons is a nice run.
How will the show end?
The timeline of the series has a big cataclysm ahead. The show is set in 1983. The USSR falls a few years later. Nobody anticipated that in real life – the USSR looked strong right up until when it broke apart. The characters on the show are starting to get disgusted with leaders in Moscow they perceive as unreliable. Of course, this has no parallel to real-life events in 2016 America.
