one thing thatís great is that, being a late-20th century product, itís not as graphic as the shit we get today. so while there is a fuckton on violence and gore and abuse, itís mostly suggested rather than explicity performed the way it is these days. but itís still edgy as fuck. very very very very good. damn! so good.
Good. The gratuitous violence and rape on, say, Game of Thrones, gets really old and really gross really fucking fast. Like, rape when the source material doesnít call for it? Rape when the scene is supposed to be a scene of good old *consensual* incest? Too much. Fuck that shit.
I prefer the subtleties. The Americans gets that kind of stuff pretty goddamn pitch-perfect. Still shows enough to let you know whatís happening, but doesnít seem to aspire to be smut.
Ahh, The Americans.
