Sunday. Night. TV. Is. Insane.

Honestly, I don’t know how people who don’t do this as a career survive Sunday nights. I had nine shows I watched on Sunday night, and there are still a few I have to catch up on/I had screeners for about half of these. These are high-class problems, but man, what a huge amount of TV for us to discuss.

Let’s get to it, with an extra warning that there are spoilers in here — between a finale and a big unannounced cameo on a certain Fox comedy, there are spoilers in here for a good number of Sunday shows…

SEX AND THE CITY’s Cynthia Nixon has signed on to guest star in the second season of THE AFFAIR, Showtime announced.

According to the network, Nixon will play Marilyn Sanders, “a direct and challenging Manhattan couples therapist who is helping Noah and Alison come together after a period of strain.”

THE AFFAIR — which kicks off its sophomore season this Sunday — will change up its format in the upcoming year: instead of showcasing the events of the series through Noah and Alison’s point of views, this year we’ll also get insight into Helen (Noah’s ex-wife) and Cole (Alison’s ex-husband).

THE AFFAIR premieres Sunday, October 4th at 10 PM on Showtime.

THE AFFAIR is shaking things up in its second season.

With the first year telling the story of Noah and Alison’s affair from their perspectives, the sophomore season will showcase the fallout of the Noah/Helen and Alison/Cole marriage by showing all four of their stories.

And with that change comes a slight format shift. The first season of THE AFFAIR showed both POVs regularly, but with four perspectives to juggle, the show will shift who it showcases week-by-week.

“For the most part, it’s still going to be two perspectives,” THE AFFAIR co-creator Sarah Treem told reporters at the recent TCA panel. “The question is whose two perspectives. So the show takes off in what I think is sort of an interesting prismatic approach to storytelling where you’ll see sort of pieces of the story from all four POVs, and then you’ll start to understand as the show keeps going basically how those four POVs are sort of funneling together, which they do do by the end.”

The change in formatting has also allowed for its actors to dive deeper into their roles.

THE AFFAIR: Sarah Treem on the Potential Pressure for a Golden Globe Winning Show

January 16, 2015 by  
Filed under The Affair

the affair-featured

THE AFFAIR was a big winner at last weekend’s Golden Globes, and showrunner Sarah Treem acknowledged she was aware of the added pressure the show’s win could bring.

“I mean, to be quite honest, we had some conversation about that beforehand,” Treem said during a Showtime TCA panel earlier this week. “And I think there’s a lot of pressure on the second season of a freshman show anyway, and the second season of a freshman show that wins the Golden Globe is big, and believe me, I feel that. But I think this show’s fortunate because we had always conceived of the show of at least three seasons, and we had thought about all three seasons and what we were going to try to do with it. So I feel that the second season will not be a panicked response to the Golden Globe win, hopefully. I think we’re going to proceed on course. I think the second season will be better than the first just because the second season emotions are better than the first. The first season is sort of a rough draft, and the second season you get to polish. So I’m hopeful that we will not crumble under pressure.”

Marisa’s Top 14 Shows of 2014

Comments Off on Marisa’s Top 14 Shows of 2014

It was another great year for television, and to celebrate that, I made my list of the top shows in 2014.

As per usual, my annual disclaimer: I literally can’t watch every show, and so some shows that probably should be here (like TRANSPARENT) didn’t make the cut because I couldn’t catch up in time. (But on the bright side, I caught up on every show I name-checked last year as not being caught up on.)

So, these are my top shows of the year…

Filed under Homeland, The Affair

Both HOMELAND and THE AFFAIR will return in 2015, Showtime announced.

HOMELAND was picked up for a 12-episode fifth season. THE AFFAIR was picked up for a 10-episode second season.

“In its fourth season, HOMELAND has brilliantly reinvented itself. It continues to capture the attention of a devoted fan base, and has provided an enviable platform for the successful launch of THE AFFAIR,” said David Nevins, President, Showtime Networks Inc., in a statement. “With thought-provoking, relevant and addictive storylines, both series have been embraced, dissected and much debated week after week. We’re excited to see more from these complex shows in 2015.”

THE AFFAIR: Joshua Jackson on the Show’s Unique Format

October 19, 2014 by  
Filed under #1 featured, The Affair

the affair-featured

Showtime’s new series, THE AFFAIR, is unlike anything on television: yes, the show follows the unfolding of an affair — told via flashbacks while its two participants, Noah and Alison, are questioned individually about what led to someone’s death — but what viewers see is directly relating to how the two characters remember what went down. The slight (and occasionally, major) differences help make the drama a show you can’t look away from.

But Alison and Noah aren’t the only two characters whose story we’re seeing in THE AFFAIR: viewers are also introduced to their spouses, Cole and Helen, who we only know from what other characters observe.

I spoke with THE AFFAIR star Joshua Jackson (Cole) about the show’s unique format, playing a character who exists (as of now) solely in other people’s perspective, and more…
