    The Affair on SHO

    Premiers on SUNDAY, October 12, 2014 @10pm on SHO


    The Affair explores the emotional effects of an extramarital relationship between Noah Solloway and Alison Lockhart after the two meet in the resort town of Montauk in Long Island.

    Noah is a New York City schoolteacher who has one novel published, and is struggling to write a second book.

    He is happily married with four children, but resents his dependence on his wealthy father-in-law.

    Alison is a young waitress trying to piece her life and marriage back together in the wake of the tragic death of her child.

    The story of the affair is told separately, complete with distinct memory biases, from the male and female perspectives.

    Showtime has a free preview of the premiere that I'm planning on watching later today. I ADORE Ruth Wilson and really like Dominic West and the other leads too. Looking forward to it.

    I saw it in the OnDemand listings earlier. Hopefully, it's either not just Comcast OR you have Comcast!

    Doesn't everybody have to have Comcast? That Time-Warner merger is looking iffy. So maybe Comcast won't own the world. Yet.

    "One of us....one of us."

    Eventually, everything will be owned by Comcast or Amazon. Scary stuff.

    Well, I watched and it looks really good! There is a mystery involved. I don't know what it is. Because it's a mystery! I'll definitely stay tuned to find out!

    Re: The Affair on SHO

    I watched it I think it was last weekend... the going back and forth threw me the first time then I caught on to how they were telling the story. I think I liked it but the jury is still out. I think the folks behind it are the ones who did HBO's "In Treatment" which was one of my favorites so I'll give it some time.

    Personally I find these humane mouse traps rather ineffective. Better to lay down some glue and when you hear the critter scream you take a shovel to his head.
