I started out with high hopes for this show, but… I don’t care if the show is renewed or not. This fairytale ending where Grace has the mud removed from her shoes, and like Dorothy clicking her heels together, suddenly all the problems in the marriage seem to have disappeared got me to thinking and looking back over the whole first year and I have come to one conclusion: We are being played. This is not a serious look at the effects of infidelity on a marriage as we were led to believe. It is a soap opera with the requisite characters. I am disappointed. We have been duped. If you think that Adrianna is manipulative, she does not hold a candle to the writer of this show. I don’t care if the show is renewed or not. At this point I have no empathy for either of the main characters. They are two-dimensional characters. There is no depth to either one. I don’t care if the marriage is saved of fails. They both deserve what they get. Neither one is fighting to save this marriage. If there is a hero in this show, it is Anika. There is very little of importance that we have learned since the first episode. This series could drag on forever without coming close to a resolution. My advice for those that continue to watch: save yourself some time and aggravation and just watch the first and last episodes of the year. If it were a book I would skip to the last chapter... Maybe.

Calm down. We have to treat infidelity with some amount of humor, for lack of a better word. It is serious, but I have friends who worked through it, more than once.
More than once? Okay, that is funny, like a man that saying that quitting smoking is easy. He has done it dozens of times. I just don't see any intentional humor in this show. If there is I missed it. I don't see any reason to watch a show you don't enjoy. But you make a good point. It doesn't make much sense to take it seriously. If I started treating it as a comedy, maybe I would enjoy it. It might play better as a comedy. It isn't doing very well in the ratings as a drama. We could start predicting what stupid thing someone is going to do to make matters even worse. Or what unanticipated illogical and out of the blue thing the writer will inject into the show next that will send it careening off into a new direction. This show would be a goldmine for that sort of thing. Unfortunately, I don't think we could do it here.
I find it interesting that you"re so different than all the rest of us. You"re main focus of the show is the kids and we"re all stuck on the adults. Let's look at other shows. Suits for example is a hit. I find it so improbable that I never watched it. That whole premise would never happen in real life. Especially if one of the main lawyers was in on the fakery. I'm sure there are fake lawyers but not in a major firm. So we have to look at shows as a reflection and distraction from life and we are the ones that take meaning from shows, they don't solve your problems. I In the last episode I found it interesting what Neil's boss said. He said he didn't care about any of his employees. Just Neil because he had to. His focus was money and Neil made him a boat load. So no answers, but an interesting statement. You can take it and reflect and make it what you want. With Anika. You see a pretty emotionally together young woman. Albright brought up by your own assessment, two dis functional adults? So you should be asking why is that, and coming to your own conclusions. This show is full of that kind of stuff, that's what has people talking. My wife won't watch it, I love it. Our relationship has always been great, the last few months it's been super great. So USA let's get season two going.
I am not so different than the rest of you. Up until I said that I didn't care if the show was renewed, we were in full agreement. If you want to turn this into an echo chamber, it is fine with me. My main focus in not on the kids. My point is that the kids have their act together more than the adults do. They talk to each other. They work their differences out. Have Neil and Grace ever sat down and had a serious discussion about anything? I don’t watch suits. Neil’s boss’s job is to make a profit for the company. If Neil is the person that is bringing in that profit, is it a surprise that Neil’s boss in focused on Neil? I hope that Satisfaction is renewed. I think it warrants it. I just have so many hours it in a day that I can watch TV so I have to be selective. For example, if Satisfaction is renewed, and I have to choose between it and another program, I will probably watch “the Affair” instead.
Another comic turn into a tv series really? How many more we will have in the future?
Several options come to mind for actresses and I'm sure there are lots more. The two key things to this show succeeding are the actress needs to be:1. Attractive in some way whether is hot or greeky attractive 2. A decent actress capable of carrying the show ( very uncommon in young actresses today)
Well, well. This should be interesting...
Is this H5O or Castle?
Doesn't make the ending suck any less.
The last 15 minutes of this episode were OK. I'm tired of Mara. I simply don't care for the petulant alien being that she is. I simply don't care for the character. She might be a fun character to play, but that isn't translating to fun to watch. Every character in this show is now is some sort of depressed negative state. No TV show can pull of a misery arc like what we're getting. The writers might think so because they're seeing the popularity of Dexter, Breaking Bas and Son of Anarchy and trying to copy it. It ain't working for Haven. Too bad.
What is the attraction of the Kardashians? I definitely don't get it. They are famous for being famous. Not only did Kardashian and Disik not add anything to the episode, they were an annoying non-sequitur. I suppose one can excuse Charlotte, who is not a Hamptonite for her moment of "star"-f***ing, but most people in the Hamptons just ignore the celebs among them.
Hahahahaha! Great move! I must see that!
Are we talking about Haven or about a Duke show. Nathan is abused from the beginning he lost everything and Duke is the one we have to cry upon. Jenn was never a true love it happened only for 4 weeks. Based on spoilers Duke is not going to mourn her a long time because he'll have another love interest. BTW I didn't like the character Jen she was there just to praise Duke. I like Dwight but he's screen time is too important.
