Showtime’s The Affair sure looks like a steamy thriller. The new drama explores the emotional and psychological effects of an extramarital affair – told from both the male and female points of view.
The cast is amazing – Dominic West (The Wire), Maura Tierny (ER), Joshua Jackson (Fringe) and Ruth Wilson (Luther) – and the the concept is fascinating. The trailer is, as advertised, steamy. Check it out after the jump. The Affair premieres on Sunday, October 10th.
Prior to last Friday’s lovely series finale for Fringe, Joshua Jackson spoke to a group of journalists/bloggers about the finale and the people he with whom he made the show over the last five seasons. It was a touching experience for those of us who got to be on the conference call (most of us being fans of the show from Day One).
Jackson spoke eloquently about the series and the way the cast and crew became a kind of family over that time – as well as what the series’ place in history might be.
Fringe (Fox, Fridays, 9/8C) is the little show that could – empowered by a hardcore fandom that has literally kept it on the air through force of will (and social media). As a result, we have a fifth and final season of thirteen episodes to wrap up one of the most intriguing and unusual shows to ever enjoy a five-season run on network television.
The year is 2036 and the Observers have taken over – but there is a resistance. That’s the basic setup for Fringe’s [Fox, Fridays, 10/9C] annual ‘out there’ episode [remember the previous animated, or musical 19th episodes], Letters of Transit [check out the cast teasing the episode above, and follow the jump to my review].
