On this week’s episode of Marvelous Geeks, Gissane Sophia sits down with the inimitable Katie Kawa, head writer and founder of Nerdy Girl Notes to discuss Emmy award winning TV drama, The Americans! We discuss the series’ strengths and lovingly call out anyone who’s into TV/film who still hasn’t watched the show.
There are spoilers half way through the podcast and you are warned when to turn it off if you want to remain unspoiled.
We hope you’re all safe and healthy!
“Lotus 1-2-3” | The Americans
Where TV’s been concerned, a lot of small, brief moments left lasting impressions this week. Once Upon A Time’s “A Wondrous Place” layered princess Jasmine beautifully. When Calls the Heart showcased that Gowen’s heart may not be as dark as we’ve imagined. (Plus, it displayed Lee and Rosemary’s relationship in a uniquely entertaining way.) Prison Break’s season five debut was solid and enticing. Black-ish reminded us of how much Zoey will be missed when she’s off to college. Chicago P.D. gave us a sweet heart to heart with Voight and Burgess. And Superstore subtly told us that Amy’s feelings for Jonah are more than what she displays. But it was The Americans which left me in a state of complete awe.
(P.S. I didn’t watch the New Girl finale, but because everyone’s been buzzing about it, it’s inspired me to catch up again, and I’m bummed I ever abandoned this show.)
