'The Americans' is TV's ultimate paean to commitment - not the gooey American kind but a rather more Soviet version.
Guided by character-driven, cause-and-effect drama, season 4 achieved a clean yet intricate design: it was a series of rebellions and rebellions within rebellions, a set of Russian nesting dolls.
Starting as Ronald Reagan takes power in the US, it touches on powerful themes of family, fidelity, betrayal and deception, making it a critical darling and one of those shows you feel a fool for missing.
In the fourth season of The Americans... still as worthy a contender for best drama on TV as ever, the American dream of the early '80s remains strong.
