WTA 15-The Americans Opening Credits

In this week’s Watching the Americans Episode 15, we present a special frame by frame analysis of the opening title sequence for Seasons 1 and 2 of The Americans.

In our discussion, we take each frame of the opening and discuss the images presented, giving historical context for them and relating them to what we know about the show so far. We also talk about some other sites that have done analyses of the opening sequence. We have a link to a blog post by one of its creators, and another look at the sequence with notes by another poster.

We finish by sharing more of your feedback for the Season 2 finale “Echo.”
