At once deeply observed and intriguingly elusive, The Affair explores the emotional effects of an extramarital relationship. Noah is a New York City schoolteacher and budding novelist with a wife of twenty years and four children. Alison is a young waitress and wife from Montauk at the end of Long Island, trying to piece her life back together in the wake of a tragedy. The provocative drama unfolds separately from multiple perspectives, using the distinct memory biases of each character to tell the story. Created by Sarah Treem.

Did You Know?


At the onset of the series The Affair (2014) it is safe to assume that Ruth Wilson as Alison Bailey and Dominic West as Noah Solloway will be having an affair which will be the central plot of the story. In the series Luther (2010) Ruth Wilson as Alice Morgan plays the foil of D.I. John Luther portrayed by Idris Elba. Idris Elba was the key antagonist Russell "Stringer" Bell, who was pursued by Dominic West as 'Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty' in the HBO series The Wire (2002). See more »

Not worth the excruciatingly long wait to find out what the heck is going on!
14 March 2016 | by (East Sussex) – See all my reviews

I really have to ask myself why I stuck it out through two entire seasons of this dreck. That's 24 frikkin episodes of slooooow close ups of puzzled faces looking at one another with strange intensity while tinkly piano music is echoing in the background, making every glance seem filled with ominous foreboding.

The concept of showing the same events from a different p.o.v. is not a bad one as people do tend to remember things differently, and the subtle variations in individual's recall could have been interesting. However, the writers have chosen to make the events SO dramatically different depending on who is narrating, that it just doesn't make sense: these are not just different viewpoints on the same events, somebody is clearly lying! But who? And why? The details turn out to be supremely unimportant and so why make such a big deal about the differences between them? Why does one person's perspective include a lot of emphasis on what dress another character was wearing, while the viewpoint of that character has them wearing a completely different outfit, only to discover that what they are wearing actually has no relevance whatsoever?

The Affair is constantly doing things like that that make the viewer speculate on the significance of the different recollections, but the problem is - IT DOESN'T MATTER. Every single one of these dumb deviations is completely and utterly meaningless. If the viewer were to make a list of all the "clues" and watch this crap all the way to the end, the viewer will NOT be rewarded for their diligence, because they are ALL red herrings.

This show is filled with ridiculous coincidences like the characters constantly running into each other by accident wherever they happen to be - in the middle of New York City in the afternoon, by the side of a deserted road in the Hamptons after midnight, at a wedding that half of them would never have logically been invited to, at the offices of some taxi company, by the docks and fishing boats, at a random house where a taxi passenger is being dropped, inside the local diner - it's as if there are only 6 people in the entire world and they must, therefore, continuously bump into each other, no matter how ludicrously unbelievable the situation.

The other problem with the differing p.o.v. narratives is that the show does not even stick to the p.o.v. of the person named at the beginning of each "chapter". So we will be watching Alison's p.o.v., for example, and then suddenly we are transported into police HQ where a detective is digging deep dirt. But Alison is not there, not witnessing this and would have no awareness of it. So how is this coming from her p.o.v.?

But I think the biggest problem with The Affair, is the eponymous affair itself: although the beginning of it was realistic and showed that affairs are essentially about unbridled lust and not much else, as the relationship developed it became utterly baffling as to what these two idiots could possibly see in one another! They have nothing in common, never have interesting conversations, and seem to spend most of their time together staring at each other with pained expressions while aforementioned tinkly piano music creates a heavy atmosphere.

There are a couple of plot points revolving around accidental pregnancies which also made me just scratch my head. Is it really normal in the 21st Century for non-monogamous people in their 30s and 40s to have unprotected sex with multiple partners, so that they wouldn't even know the paternity of a resulting child? Maybe on Jerry Springer, but these are supposed to be educated adults trying to conceal their dalliances. It's as if condoms and birth control pills had never been invented.

I also thought it was hilarious how every significant character, even if they seem poor, seems to own valuable beachfront property that they can sell for millions, while foreclosures are just as rampant and seem to conveniently happen to various loathed characters who still hang out at their former properties, even after being divested of them. What?

The Affair is a very confusing show that tries to weave together not only multiple viewpoints, but several different time lines. These are not clearly presented as such with any kind of on screen titles (no "24 hours earlier" heads ups, such as the show Damages made popular and which technique has since been recreated on many other shows, like Revenge) with the result that the viewer is frequently trying to figure out if we have gone backwards or forwards in time or if we are in the present.

I will not be returning for Season 3 and if you've read this far then I sincerely hope that you won't watch this rubbish at all!
