Description

Danger lies in losing control. Be lured into THE AFFAIR, a provocative series that explores the psychological effects of an erotically-charged betrayal. No marriage is beyond temptation, and there is no refuting the connection set in motion when Noah and Alison meet by chance. What follows is far more than an intimate portrait; it’s a unique and thrilling narrative that unravels the dangerous truth layer by layer. Starring Dominic West, Ruth Wilson, Maura Tierney and Joshua Jackson.

  • Boooooring

    This show is in the top rankings for most boring show ever. It is veeeeeery sloooooow, and if that were not enough, the same slow action boring trite plot is served to you twice in each episode, from two points of view. In case you were not bored enough, we got you! Seriously, one cannot indulge for hours on someone staring in space, but this seems to be the leif motif of the series. Looooong landscape scenes, loooong bike rides, looooong car rides, stare in space for as loooong as you can, until everyone dies of boredom. If you condensed this into a 90 minutes movie, it would still be too long.

    I thought this show would be interesting because of the perception based storytelling. Be advised that the repetition of events through the eyes of Noah and Allison slows an already dull story down to the point where it becomes unwatchable.
  • Disappointing

    I enjoyed Dominic West in The Wire and The Hour. This series had none of the passion or believability of those series. Finished it just to see if it would get better but it was not engaging.
  • Can't wait for season two!

    Loved this show. Superb acting, and the details in the execution are fantastic. The truth always lies between how two people recall events, and this show hits that home. Really looking forward to all the questions being answered in Season two!
  • Good acting but weird dual-perspective format

    I stopped watching after the second episode. The premise relies heavily on the notion that two individuals can perceive the same events differently, splitting each episode to show things from each of the two main characters’ perspectives. This sounds cool, but the execution just doesn’t make much sense to the viewer. Maybe this changes as the season unfolds, but the characters' perceptions are so grossly divergent from one another that the audience is left wondering what actually took place. Even the placement of people and objects, as well as characters’ actions, differ in the first and second halves of each episode! It would be much more believable and easier to follow if the characters’ perspectives were portrayed in such a way that events took place physically identical but emotionally and cognitively disparate for each party involved.
  • SPOILERS: Wow. What an ending.

    I was wondering how they were going to continue the series but, with that ending... Spoilers: Overall all the characters are so messed up. From the two main characters giving into lust to the spouses who allow it. I can't believe both spouses still wanted those cheating morally corrupt people in their lives. Once the trust is gone what is the point. The cheaters didn't even have to profess their love. The spouses were so infatuated with them and for what reason? I have no idea.. This show is about outgrowing a relationship/life and not being able to move on. Noah was so tied to his life he couldn't breath. Allison was in the same boat where she couldn't live with the constant reminder of her son everywhere. She'd express what she needed and Cole would just ignore her and pretend everything would get better. It's about not letting everything get neatly swept under the rug. It's better to deal with and be heard by your spouse than pretend everything will work itself out. Both characters seemed to have issues with being around the in-laws. The best part of the series is the point of view of Noah/Allison (kept reminding of the Notebook). How he always made her look better in his memory from what she wore to her hairstyle (usually down and curled perfectly and up pulled back in hers). She was always the one throwing herself at him. Like she was more to blame. In her memory she's more of a hero saving his daughter. He threw himself at her. His wife always looked frumpy or worse. This was probably the most entertaining part of the show for me. How we all have a different point of view and we make ourselves look less guilty. Noah's point of view was usually more dramatic and entertaining even though Allison's point of view was more likely accurate. A lot of unanswered questions like who is the babies father? How much time passed? Looking forward to season 2.
  • The best new show in YEARS.

    The writing and acting is spectacular. With it being written in two different points of view, you really get a feel for how it felt to be each one and to see it they their eyes. This is the best new TV show that you're not watching.....and shame on you for not seeing yet 😃 lol. Give this series a try. You will be beyond happy with it.
  • When is the show going to be available???

    This shows' icon has been under "new and noteworthy" for a long time now, and zero episodes have been uploaded. What's going on?!! Why upload this icon if you're not going to upload the show?!

    I hope the Golden Globes win gets this show more attention, because it's stellar.
  • Well acted but nothing new

    A very damaged woman and a narcissistic man have an affair. There is a murder investigation going on and the story is told from both point of views. Well acted by everyone but I feel the material is weak. There is something interesting about the vastly different points of view depicted. Maura Tierney is especially strong as the wronged wife from a wealthy amoral family.
