The Americans (New Season, First Episode)
If you started to tire of The Americans, don't worry, the new season (at least the first episode) is going to take you from tired to exhausted. Beside being a bit incomprehensible, there are scenes that are slow beyond anyone's imagination. In short, excruciatingly slow. Alas, there is nothing good about the episode to counter-balance all that's bad about it. Our Fine Arts Department (FAD) will give it another episode or maybe even two, but nothing more shall be posted here unless there is some kind of dramatic turn-around. The only "fun" thing is that the same actress who was in Justified and now is Sneaky Pete, who was in earlier episodes of The Americans, does appear again, and she's very good, although she was on screen for under a minute.
