Over the past few years, shows such as In Treatment, The Wire, Fringe, and Luther have all garnered widespread critical acclaim. The newest series from Showtime brings together talents from all four shows, as Sarah Treem and Hagai Levi team up once again to create The Affair. Focusing on two couples and the toll an extramarital affair has on both, the new series stars Dominic West, Ruth Wilson, Joshua Jackson, and Maura Tierney, and uses multiple perspectives to look at the same event from different angles. The show’s pilot episode indicates these talents have not been wasted, as it delivers an engrossing episode that uses its unique storytelling structure to great effect, while painting a compelling mystery populated by strong characters.
