More mystery .. same style as the first season .. and i believe a new story from another perspective..
25 September 2015 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

So the Affair is back after winning a two Golden Globes few months ago one of which for being Best Television Drama Series .. and honestly it kinda was one of the best dramas last year.. Now the the story is back .. same style, separating the two stories in two parts of Noah aaaand Not just Alison this time it is Helen's and Cole's turn too :D .. so the story is getting more complicated than it already is.

Still don't know who's the man that been killed supposedly by Noah .. and that implies a new story in a new town. The scenes still flips between the now "with the detective " and the past which where the plot lies.

To be quite honest .. i still fast-forward on some unnecessary scenes .. i mean for god's sake it's an over hour show and it is not Game of Thrones !!! :P

But anyway .. the mysteriousness and vague moments still there . and i think that what make the series more and more appealing ,, and as we've used to see in season one ,, the story as a whole will unravel itself bit by bit as the episodes roll..

So overall,, i hope the show this time keep on making us wanting to know more and get rid of these little static moments.
