The Affair, Season 4 DVD
What are you holding on to? Long past the secrets that brought them together and tore their lives apart, Noah, Alison, Helen and Cole are on separate journeys with the promise of new relationships and a fresh start. But as the past continues to surface, they question what they re holding on to as their lives keep crashing back into one another.
The writing is so captivating that each episode is over in a flash. I love the complexity of the characters. Each character sees their experiences through his or her own filter, which is true to life, as this is true for all humans. In fact, it is the humanity exposed that makes this show so captivating. Dominic West is fantastic. All of the actors are amazing. Season 3 was kind of a let down. I know that the show tells us that the creator always saw this as a 5-season show, but I suspect they saw it as a 2-season show and went with it. Season 3 was interesting, but I feel like they are coming up with things for which there is no foreshadowing in the first 2 seasons. Nonetheless, I love Season 4, though I found Cole’s California experience to be a bit contrived and not very believable. Joshua Jackson is hot and a bit of a scene-stealer at times. Probably in my top 5 shows of all time.
