Trivia

At the onset of the series The Affair (2014 it is safe to assume that Ruth Wilson as Alison Bailey and Dominic West as Noah Solloway will be having an affair which will be the central plot of the story. In the series Luther (2010) Ruth Wilson as Alice Morgan plays the foil of D.I. John Luther portrayed by Idris Elba. Idris Elba was the key antagonist Russell "Stringer" Bell, who was pursued by Dominic West as 'Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty' in the HBO series The Wire (2002). See more »

entertaining and thought provoking
27 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To previous uptight reviewer...go back to your crap hole country and watch god propaganda all day. some of us can actually watch shows that don't agree with our values and still appreciate the entertainment value. I noticed how offended you are by the affair itself but not about the person murdered..... twisted sense of priorities. I find this show..thought provoking. Maybe one should think of all the things that could go wrong if you have an affair that's why I have no problem with the show being on TV it can be used as a learning tool at least something to make people think. I Beli eve lessons c an be learned while also watching something of interest.
