Anyone know if it's worth watching The Affair?
Now I'm on my laptop your comment makes sense.
I've only watched the first four episodes which is less than half of the show so I can't really provide too much comment.
It goes at a pretty slow pace so far which I think is a good thing for the sort of show it is and a pleasant change from the usual American shows at the moment. The affair is what the whole show has focused on so far with a murder investigation as a sub plot. So far the show has been the two characters individually recounting the events of how their affair started and progressed in front of an investigating officer in the present day. The first half of each episode is shown through the eyes/memory of the male protagonist and the second half of the show is the same events through the eyes/memory of the female protagonist. It may not sound that great on description but it's pretty much the pull of the two lead stars that makes the series flow, the complexity of their characters and their pasts as well as what's going on around them.
I'm only on episode four so I can't say more than that, it is worth a watch to see if you like it though.
