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.
The Whole Truth [ABC, Wednesdays, 10/9C] is the series that gives us both sides of a criminal investigation. We see the arrest and then each ep bounces back and forth between the points of view of the prosecutor, Kathryn Peale [Maura Tierney] and defence attorney Jimmy Brogan [Rob Morrow], and their respective teams. It’s a great concept, but unfortunately, only one side really stands out.
