The revolution has been televised

THE AMERICANS is one of the best American TV series ever. Located in the time of Ronald Reagan when the world was threatened to be set on fire (with some different circumstances and a slightly different agenda compared to today‘s scenarios of worst possible cases), there were Russian spies, of course, on American soil – and what could unfold as another decent spy story, turned out to be outstanding in every way. Even the vast majority of the critics were stunned (and some possibly wrote their best, inspired reviews, starting from season one onwards to season 6 and maybe 7) – and though I often trust my minority opinions, in this case I’m happy to be part of a general consensus, and hereby just want to share my uninhibited and, well, well-judged, enthusiasm. So just as reminder here, in „Joey style“, my favourite TV series of the 21st century (and, gosh, what do I have to leave out, from VIKINGS to HAPPY VALLEY, from highly inventive retro STRANGER THINGS (great soundtrack choices!) to nearly instant classic LITTLE BIG LIES (even better soundtrack choices!), from THE OA to RAY DONOVAN :)) – some may call „Banshee“ a guilty pleasure, but that‘s the gist of lists, to be utterly sincere and don‘t deliver cultural correctness whatever the fuck that is …

    Interesting, we were just talking about this series last night, as we are going thru Northern Exposure series. It’s as great as I remember.

    We looked up 5e creator to see what else he has done and It turns out Joshua Brand is behind The Americans. So that’s next for us.

    Incidentally, we bought the german version of NE, because it’s the only version that ha the original music, which is so important to this series. (All other versions have substituted generic music because the rights were too expensive.)

  2. Brian Whistler:

    Yeah, agree: Stranger Things and OA were both very good!

    But a top 10 list is a hard thing to make.

    I often wrote about Northern Exposure. Early 90‘s. So brilliant. Still, i also bought the new re-release. Chris was my „hero“ (role model) before my radio days:)

    THE AMERICANS is very dark, but fantastic. All the way through….
