Excellent Dialogue!
2 July 2004 | by (New Jersey, USA) – See all my reviews

For anyone who enjoyed the honest dialogue of the show, "thirtysomething", "United States" would definitely have been a show to see. The conversations between a man and his wife (we find out that she has been married before) are a stream-of-consciousness discussion, weaving in, out, and around the original topic.

In one episode, the husband finds out that a friend has been having an affair. The topic of marital fidelity is discussed, and the wife reveals that she had cheated on her first husband. Her state of mind at the time of the affair and her new husband's altered opinion of her are addressed, very compellingly.

Rather than simply have talking heads, the camera rarely points at the characters' faces. In this episode, for example, the couple is changing clothes to attend a function at which the unfaithful friend will be present.

The camera is directed at the busy hands and fluttering clothing of each speaker in turn, until they finally leave the bedroom.

If this series is now or is ever available for purchase, I am eager to own it.
