Quotes

Peter Bradford: If you'd landed troops on the beaches, maybe it would have been different.
Colonel Andrei Denisov: What we did not expect was that, without communications, the United States would revert to a collection of separate peoples.
Peter Bradford: You just got the drop on us.
Colonel Andrei Denisov: [shaking off the suggestion] I don't believe it. It worked because you lost your country before we ever got here.

Fascinating idea, but what happened?
21 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Amerika" had potential, but squandered it in a storyline that made no sense and in characters that made even less sense.

I watched this miniseries when it was broadcast, and taped it thinking it would be something worth keeping. I've never been inclined to view those tapes, because the non-sequitors were annoying the first time through.

This was a dreadful production. It isn't obscure because it was controversial, it's obscure because it's dreadful. The Russians are in charge, but why does that mean there is no running water? I kept waiting for the story to go somewhere, for Kris Kristopherson to start acting (never happened!), for some character, somewhere to make me care what happened to them.

This miniseries is not a suppressed gem. It's a well-ignored waste of time, talent, and potential.
