The Affair explores the emotional and psychological effects of an extramarital affair. The drama will be told separately from the male and female perspectives using the distinct memory biases to both misdirect and intrigue.

The Affair is perhaps the most uniquely structured drama on television, in that it uses differences in memory and perception as its unreliable narrator. The show trades in the salaciousness of its premise, wherein two married people fall for one another and begin an affair, for a quiet, almost smothering atmosphere, a nimbly constructed narrative with gut punch reveals, and two of television's best performances from Ruth Wilson and Dominic West.

This show is simply AMAZING. A lovely cast, great writing and a mysterious and entangling plot. I really enjoy the two different perspectives and how they differ from each other. Plus I love the opening song.
