Trailer for Showtime's "The Affair" Starring Dominic West, Ruth Wilson, Josh Jackson & Maura Tierney

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 novelist who is happily married, 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 a tragedy. Set in Montauk at the end of Long Island, the provocative drama unfolds separately from both the male and female perspectives, using the distinct memory biases of both to tell the story.

The Affair premieres on Showtime on October 19th at 10pm.


The producer of the show just said at TCA that they may go into the perspectives of the spouses as well in later episodes.

Because I couldn't fit everyone's names in the title unless I shortened his.

I love Ruth Wilson, she should get a spinoff from Luther.
complisult 19th-Jul-2014 01:31 am (UTC)
I love her too. I'll probably give this a shot because of her.
michelleantonia 19th-Jul-2014 05:58 am (UTC)
I just want her more on Luther. Those two together are magic
post_dada 19th-Jul-2014 06:04 am (UTC)
I think she's be bland without Luther. I think her character has more fun when she has someone intelligent to play off of.

I wouldn't cheat on Pacey for that dude at all.
shangri__la 19th-Jul-2014 01:19 am (UTC)
And he looks like a good husband/boyfriend in the trailer too so I need answers.

All I could think while watching this is "Oh hey it's showtime the sex scenes are gonna be... interesting?"

I feel like there's like ten shows that cover this same ground that have either been out recently or will be out soon themselves.

this sounds like the basis of a miniseries more than an actual series imo

I'm not sure how to explain this but the trailer has this really distinct feel that reminds me of all those set-at-the-beach-in-2004 movies. Idk if it's the editing or what though. Anyway, the guy that lady cheats with looks like a downgrade.
elksa 19th-Jul-2014 01:34 am (UTC)
is this supposed to go multiple seasons?

if so it will deteriorate faster than most showtime shows
noneformethanx 19th-Jul-2014 01:44 am (UTC)
I'll definitely watch this
pastelstar 19th-Jul-2014 01:48 am (UTC)
LOL like anyone would cheat on Pacey Peter Witter Bishop on a dude like that.
hay_nako 19th-Jul-2014 03:22 am (UTC)

zoaster_toaster 19th-Jul-2014 02:07 am (UTC)
Love Dominic and Ruth, but why is this a full series as opposed to a movie or mini-series?
belladonnastrap 19th-Jul-2014 02:19 am (UTC)
This is not helping my thirst for Joshua Jackson because JFC he looks so fucking hot in this.

Other than that bleah

Looks interesting
consie 20th-Jul-2014 01:20 am (UTC)
WHO CHEATS ON JOSH JACKSON?! That's right, implausible flop storyline.

But he looks hella hot as usual, so I'll definitely watch.
