Complex slow burner
- The Americans: Series 3 review by MB
At first, this third season seemed to lack the drama and thrills and spills of the first two seasons. But as it develops, the story lines become increasingly loaded and complex. The characters find themselves in grey areas, being pulled in different directions by conflicting motives and aspirations. There is the usual Russian-American drama, but the real grit is in the relationship dilemmas which build and build.
