The Americans “The Day After” Review - AVClub

AVClub: The Magic Of David Copperfield V: The Statue Of Liberty Disappears was watched by “every single person” Henry Jennings knows. It’s teenage hyperbole, but he could’ve said the same thing about The Day After: ABC Theater’s presentation of the nuclear holocaust parable pulled in 100 million viewers, more than any other made-for-TV movie to date. But unlike “The Magic Of David Copperfield V: The Statue Of Liberty Disappears,” “The Day After” beams its namesake broadcast into houses that aren’t the Jennings’. In his hermetically sealed apartment, William watches the McCoy family argue about the severity of the Soviet threat. In a bedroom across town, Tatiana and Oleg see Dr. Russell Oakes weaving through traffic on a crowded highway.

The story is too old to be commented.
