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 »

As with life, love, and intimate pleasure it's a tale of two sides, this series is one hot guilty pleasure!
13 November 2014 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Been watching "The Affair" this fall on Showtime and I must say it's one hot new series that keeps you on the edge of your seat as each episode is told in two half like ways. And you get a different take on events and happenings from each of the main two characters Noah and Alison and each episode shows happenings thru flashbacks all centered around the hot intimate affair of Noah and Alison, all of this is centered around a hidden possible murder mystery. The tale is set one summer with Noah(Dominic West)a writer and teacher who decides to take his children and wife Helen(Maura Tierney)to the Hamptons and stay for a get away vacation at his in-laws' estate island. Soon upon arrival Noah meets Alison(Ruth Wilson)a married local waitress who's lived in the area all of her life. Right off the two hit and soon a hot and intimate lust affair of sex and sleeping around happens with these two. Both of these characters Noah and Alison have baggage and burned pasts with skeletons in their closets as Alison has pain and a tragedy still she is one hot sexy lady that looks good wearing colored bras!(look for Ruth Wilson to be a hot new star) Overall this series is a fun treat that let's the viewer escape showing what it's like to have an affair as many of us have fairy tale wishes of an affair just like this one.
