Critic Reviews of "The Americans - Season 5"Sean T. Collins New York ObserverMarch 22, 2017
Drawing out scenes and storylines for as long as it can before pulling the trigger on our understanding of what the show is doing and why the show is doing it. "The Midges"...features what's bound to be one of the most talked-about examples.Matt Brennan Paste MagazineMarch 22, 2017
The Americans roils with intense feeling, but its pleasures are not volcanic in nature-its secrets and sentiments seep into the tiniest gestures, the most quotidian moments, until we realize the trickle's a flood.Eric Goldman IGN MoviesMarch 22, 2017
Martha's back! It felt inevitable we'd see her again at some point, but it's great to get confirmation here. In classic Americans style, it wasn't rushed... now we know she's potentially in play this season. When might she pop up again? We shall see.Alec Bojalad Den of GeekMarch 22, 2017
Consider the slow start over. While episodes one and two of season 5 were delightful in their own expository way, "The Midges" announces that we are right in the thick of things now.Alan Sepinwall UproxxMarch 22, 2017
All we know for the moment is that she's there, and alive, and as sad and Poor Martha as ever, and for the moment she not only helps to embody the food crisis, but the larger matter of what happens to people in whom Philip or Elizabeth take an interest.Ed Gonzalez Slant MagazineMarch 22, 2017
"The Midges," which gets its name from the insects that Philip and Elizabeth and their supervisor, Gabriel (Frank Langella), believe is being used by Alexei to target the Soviet Union's wheat, impressively coils together its two major plot threads.Erik Adams AV ClubMarch 22, 2017
"The Midges" is a bit of a slippery episode. It's a great collection of scenes -- "great" in terms of quality and number -- but it's hard to pin down the connective tissue between them.Mike Hale New York TimesMarch 22, 2017
There were ideas flying around in the episode about identity and the loss of self, which involved lots of long looks between Elizabeth and Philip and required them to don Western drag.Todd VanDerWerff VoxMarch 22, 2017
The Americans has always been about the inability of ideology to completely encompass that which makes us human - a useful message for these times - and Elizabeth's evolution in regards to that very question has been the spine of the series.Scott Tobias New York Magazine/VultureMarch 22, 2017
The beauty of this discussion - and of "The Midges," the best episode of the season so far - is that it reinforces the series as a higher-stakes version of parenthood.
