Trying to get back into this show. Think this is my third attempt. About halfway through season two. The more I watch, the more I like it, I just have a hard time investing in TV.
I got to the end of season 2 and got busy again. I still like it, I just have a hard time sticking to TV right now in my life.

The writing and acting was pitch perfect for that finale. The characters just felt so real to me.

 :'(  Tears indeed.  The show went out doing what it does best, completely subverting expectations and yet feeling like it couldn't go any other way. 

The Wire may still be the best show I've ever seen but The Americans, as I've long felt and this final season only confirmed, is my favorite.
