    Andy Greenwald

    I've been thinking a lot about the laundry room. Sure, it's a convenient, if ironic, spot for Philip and Elizabeth Jennings to do their dirt. With two kids, there's no shortage of soiled clothes to go through, and the comforting hum of...

  3. My Feature-Length TV Show of the Year: Frances Ha

    Andy Greenwald

    Now more than ever, pop culture is about the small stuff — an obscure TV show, a few notes in a pop song, a tweet. To celebrate a year of micro moments, every day a new Grantland writer will highlight one specific thing — a Big Little Thi...

  4. The Americans Season 1 Finale: Games Without Frontiers

    Over the course of this bracing and brilliant debut season of The Americans, we've been introduced to all sorts of agents. There are federal agents, Soviet and travel agents (Philip and Elizabeth happen to be both), and a large assortment of single, ...

  5. The Americans Season 1, Episode 12: Feelings Come and Go, But 'Th...

    Andy Greenwald

    One of the many subtle arguments The Americans has advanced during this remarkable debut season is the notion anyone is capable of doing just about anything. Maybe we can't all get an armed FBI agent to stab himself in the gut, like Philip, or spice ...

    Andy Greenwald

    Everyone takes their work home with them. How could we not? Especially these days, when the demands of a high-maintenance boss can buzz in your pocket from miles away. But cell phones have only taken something universal and made it immediate. There's...

    Andy Greenwald

    "The '80s" as they exist in contemporary pop culture are a lot different from the '80s as they were actually lived. This is one of the many things that The Americans has gotten right in its increasingly exceptional freshman season. There are no gratu...

    Andy Greenwald

    In 1981, the year The Americans takes place, the divorce rate in the United States reached an all-time high: 5.3 divorces per 1000 people. At the time, this was partly ascribed to the rising trend in "no-fault" divorce laws, under which many states n...

  11. The Americans Season 1, Episode 2: 'The Clock'

    Andy Greenwald

    When we first met Philip and Elizabeth Jennings, they were on a bit of a hot streak in their little corner of the Cold War. Their work seemed simple, straightforward: sleep with some men, shove others into the trunk. They'd been undercover so long th...

    Andy Greenwald

    This week brings the release of Super 8, director J.J. Abrams' bighearted tribute to the sort of wide-eyed, family-friendly alien adventure movies Steven Spielberg used to make before he discovered less interesting things such as American history, Os...
