It's much more consistent than season two. Maybe not as much as last year, but the overarching plot and the acting is better.
The main cast has been having knockout performances but Margo Martindale and Jeremy Davies still crush all of the guest stars from this season and the overarching plot has been all over the place. Maybe everything will come together in the end. The show is still amazing, I just think The Americans is a little bit better right now.
