Storyline

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.

The two version get longer and more elaborate.
10 January 2019 | by nishi_geSee all my reviews

Real nice concept but gets lengthier and frustrating by season 3 to watch almost every incident twice over.
