The Affair, Season 3 Episode 1 and 2 recap  I would imagine there is significant overlap between the people who watch The Affair and a certain other show that is about the intimate wonderful terrible ways of family. I felt like a few days of distance would help us to process Gilmore a little more, and meanwhile, The Affair is here as a nice, light palate cleanser. Full Story

We’d probably be hearing a lot more from the TCAs – the Television Critics Association – if the Olympics weren’t on. But how can you focus on a show that’s coming back in a month or three when there are people javelin-ing and trampoline-ing in colours of spandex we didn’t know existed? That’s why the headlines that matter feel even more exciting. Full Story

Last year, The Affair won the big prize. Best Drama. So people were surprised, this year, when there were no corresponding nominations, based on how much richer and deeper the show was in season two, and how beloved it had been by the HFPA in season 1. No nominations except one—for Maura Tierney playing Helen Solloway, a character who has been my favourite of the four leads all year, and who is marvelously layered. Full Story

In a new move for The Affair, we see everyone tonight. Everyone has a dramatic, life-changing night in the storm. Including Whitney. Dear God. I especially love that because we’re going by clock and not by perspective, the show is telling us that the things we’re seeing are objectively true. Full Story

The Affair Season 2 Episode 5 recap  (Lainey: a quick note before Duana starts analysing the latest episode…because she would never tell you this herself. Sarah Treem is the showrunner of The Affair.

The Affair Season 2 Episode 3 recap I snarked on Twitter early in the episode that Noah is terrible even in his own memory. I was amused by myself actually. But then I realized that it’s true. That he’s actually nicer in Alison’s memory than in his own. Actually, so is Whitney. Full Story

I really loved watching The Affair – but I didn’t enjoy it. I know that sounds contradictory, but there wasn’t much to celebrate and love. That was a bleak show.  But I loved it - maybe in a more ‘craft-driven’ way than I expected. The show was least interesting when it was actually focusing on The Affair itself, and much more interesting when it was focusing on whatever Alison and Noah were running away from. Full Story
