The Americans Season 3 Episode 7

Not all critically acclaimed shows do well on the site, unfortunately. Personally, we're big fans of The Americans.

Oh Terrie. A comment. A COMMENT!!! I was so lonely! It's so exciting seeing Norman embrace his darkness because we know he's not going to make it as normal, whether he wants to or even tries. Freddie Highmore's sweet face is perfect for the turmoil brewing within. It looks like Mother isn't going to be pleased next week to learn abby-Norman got into a car with another strange woman who never returned. Should be gooood!

Haha. Yes, pun intended! I am horrible at puns, but that one was ripe for the taking! I watched it several times, to be honest, and got more out of it each time. So many people utterly despised it. To each his own, I suppose. I tend to enjoy things for what they are and everything doesn't have to be an Emmy Award winning dramatic entry for me to enjoy the heck out of it. I didn't find the connections to be falsely contrived and really liked how they all fell together. The upcoming ones are also very good and at the end of the third episode (as far as I've had the privilege to see), I was like, DARN, because I knew I had to wait a month to find out what happened next. That's a good thing, right? Then I flew to Google and started watching the premiere again. :-) At the time of the kiss, I knew something was up with Peter and the girl. There were signs it might be a daughter connection, so I was skeptical. I became freaked later because, while I didn't know she reminded him of his daughter, he clearly did. That's just weird. I liked the innocent hugs, but I can't erase the jumping nude into a holy pool thing. He has a nice behind, and I'm not going to be upset to have seen it, I'd just rather it have been with someone else. Hehe

I agree, but to what end would they be bringing him in? To usher in the real guys appearance or hasten the end of the world? It's hard to imagine how anyone would benefit from just causing Armageddon without the bright side. Still, I find it fascinating that people would really want to do any of it. Thanks for reading!

You have said that repeatedly, but it makes no sense. Especially after you wrote on another post that turning shows into a soap opera ruins them. Why should Felicity have to be in love with Arrow in order to work for him? Does Roy have to love him? Laurel? Felicity doesn't have to cut ties with Team Arrow. She has earned her place on the team. Oliver is horrible boyfriend material. He needs to grow up before he can love anyone and that's going to take a while.

Why is the sky people blood permanent? I missed that their blood was different then the grounders. Interesting. You'd think it would be the opposite.

Right you are, Leon. So much for the new healthy diet I'm on! Thanks so much for the way you kindly pointed it out. You have a lot of class and it's much appreciated. :-)

Arrow Round Table: Raylicity FTW!

I think it's a tomato tom-ah-to type of thing. I noticed Nanda Parbat being pronounced the same two ways people pronounce aunt, as well -- ant and awnt, nanda and nawnda. Meh. ;-)

Thanks for the background. I'll do some reading on the Batman side of things. By the way, I don't think Ra's is a good guy, per se, but that he has a code of honor that he lives by. It may not be the code others live by, but it counts for something. I'm not sure the same can be said for Malcolm.

Thanks Marguerite. I was kinda shocked at the comments, to be honest. Obviously, I loved the finale. I couldn't have asked for more. All of the scenes with Abby and Jake blew me away. He didn't give up on her even when she was pushing him away. Awww. I was crying. Oh well. Maybe we see things differently. :-)
