Agreed. Loved it!
SMG really hasn't had good luck lately, has she? :-( She's two for two!
I didn't want to make it about last season. We also lost The Tomorrow People and Intelligence, shows which really resonated with the viewers. I chose the other J.H. Wyman show, Keen Eddie. Interestingly, one of the reasons Almost Human failed was due to scheduling and the decision by Fox to air eps out of order. Shame. Great cast.
Hey kids! I've decided to review The Affair to try to keep all of us together and continue this discussion about marriage - even if it will be under circumstances. I hope you'll join me. Yep - it's likely to be uncomfortable, but given the pedigree and performers, it's bound to be interesting to watch!
Allow me to share this was NOT the title I used. It was changed in editing and therefore lost a little in translation. The show itself would have had to be completely revamped, obviously, but it could have continued in some form. Thanks for reading!
Admittedly, I was overwhelmed with love for Neil when the series started. I really didn't like Grace. However, about four or five episodes ago they started paying attention to her, and in turn I opened up. When I want back and watched the first two eps yesterday, I realized that we were given information, but it was lost because we thought we were on Neil's journey. I was unduly dismissive of Grace, but her story was being shared, just in a different capacity. Additionally, until I saw Neil purposefully walk away from an opened Grace and into Adriana's arms, I wanted to believe he was Mr. Wonderful. But he's not. He's only Mr. Wonderful when he has nothing to lose. Unfortunately, that very thought pattern will likely be what causes him to lose Grace. He has the pieces, and still isn't using them. She just got the pieces. We'll see what she does with them.
Whoops! Fixing now. It appears many series suffered from networks airing the series out of order. You'd think they'd learn, but Fox's history (in particular) of repeating itself is rather troublesome in that regard.
I think that Grace will be jealous just as Neil was. Hearing that he is more sought after than Neil? Honestly, if I was in Grace's situation that would piss me off and sadden me greatly. Grace has tried to reach out to him (rewatching helped me realize that of earlier episodes, when I was dismissing her outright) and he was always too busy, etc. To find he take the time with others that he doesn't take with her is a different kind of betrayal than what she did to Neil. Grace went to someone else because she thought Neil wasn't there. He wasn't. He was always gone. Even now when they get close, before she wakes, he's gone (once right into Adriana's arms). To know she put herself out there and he turned to another as she held out her arms is sure to be very, very difficult. She's wanted the very opportunities he's instead decided to afford to others. Cheating when you feel unwanted is one thing, but knowing you're loved and desired (which even Simon told Neil he understood from Grace) is a different level of betrayal in my world view.
Haha! Wonder why you wanted a second season of Three Rivers. Hmmmm. Not just because I'm from Pittsburgh, certainly! If I were to choose between medical dramas that were cut too soon, I'd choose Miami Medial over Three Rivers. It had far more compelling characters and storylines. Not dissimilar to The Night Shift in tone, which did get a second season - so yay!
The list was initially much longer. Whittling it down wasn't easy, I assure you.
