THE AFFAIR REVIEWED
“The Affair” continues with another 12 episodes of spotlighting the aftermath of an affair. Honestly, I don’t know if it was smart to keep extending the series. The first season was stunning and stand among the best of Showtime’s original content. But, how much more drama can you milk out of an affair? The show is the kind of cringe I enjoy. There’s no emotional response in its immediacy, it dwells as the show continues.
Having our two summer lovers come together would be way too easy. I enjoy the push of making their families slowly deal with the knowledge. It’s far more difficult when you realize that kids are involved. The thrust of this season is trying to move into the future. But, one lie leads to another and even more cringe for the intellectual set. Hopefully, Ruth Wilson wins more Awards as this show is her showcase. Great stuff all around and I’d recommend a purchase to fans. I just really don’t know where Season 3 is going to lead.
