The new season premieres on Feb 26 10 PM.
Non-Americans can’t access the clips on fx website without using a proxy and theres actually good material there, but I found this on youtube, one of them pretty curious.
Trailer 2:February 8, 2014 at 10:32 am #310520
I have a lot of expectation, usually FX’s shows find their footing in the second season, and Americans was already so good in its first one.February 21, 2014 at 3:58 pm #310521
Only five reviews, but 92 on Metacritic!February 21, 2014 at 4:29 pm #310522
Great. I hope this lives to the raising hype it has right now.February 22, 2014 at 4:13 am #310523
Up to 94 after a sixth. I am really getting psyched for this to come back. Especially after Justified, while still good, has underwhelmed for the most part this season.February 24, 2014 at 5:24 pm #310524
After review 7 and 8, a 83 and 75 both by fucking AV.Club and Slant magazine respectively . Down to a 91 now. Expecting it to remain on the 85-90.February 26, 2014 at 6:35 am #310525
89 with 18 reviews in is very strong. Especially when the narrative from most of the lower scores seems to be the quality is still there but the reviewer is skeptical how long they can keep it going. Looking forward to the premiere tonight.February 26, 2014 at 8:15 pm #310526
Fantastic premiere, the stakes are raised!February 27, 2014 at 12:44 am #310527
If not the best episode of the show this was probably the most confident and well structured. I like this series best when it’s lowkey. When things get frantic it becomes too silly for its own good. I’m still left indifferent to Russell’s performance which just seems too girly and lite for a show of this nature. Other than that, this was probably the best premiere of any series this season.February 27, 2014 at 6:23 am #310528
I prefer Breaking Bad’s premiere but this came close.February 27, 2014 at 7:36 am #310529
This was an extremely strong premiere. They raised the stakes without forcing too much at once and gave us some answers to questions that were lingering from the finale without making it feel rushed or contrived. This was as a whole much better than the Breaking Bad premiere. The Breaking Bad premiere hinged heavily on the final scene between Walt and Hank. This was firing on all cylinders from the beginning. There were a few on the nose uses of symbolism but forgivable and for the most part anyone that is a fan of this show should be excited after a premiere like that. Matthew Rhys, to me, is doing Emmy worthy work. Hopefully, the show will garner more attention this year at the Emmys.
Also, I get the feeling that Stan Beeman is going to die either this season or the next.February 27, 2014 at 9:52 am #310530

I don’t see him being killed off this soon, but next season is certainly possible. I have a pretty good feeling Nina will die this season though.February 27, 2014 at 10:20 am #310531
I thought about her as well. I just don’t want her to die because she is nice to look at. Someone is dying this season; could be Claudia, could eb Arkady. They were planning to assassinate Arkady last season.February 27, 2014 at 5:29 pm #310532
That was brutal, a bloodbath to put shame on Justified’s most violent episodes and what a great episode. If they had casted Rhys to play Christian Bale’s part on American Hustle and if that film didn’t sucked, he would be worth of a oscar win.February 28, 2014 at 12:37 am #310533
I’m not as big a fan of the show as most around here, but I liked the premiere quite a bit, even if the blatant symbolism was hokey and contrived.
Oh, and I don’t think there’s a chance they’ll kill off Margo Martindale’s character.
