Life leads us into temptation as the award-winning drama The Affair chronicles what happens when happily married father Noah Solloway (DOMINIC WEST) crosses paths with young, married waitress Alison Lockhart (RUTH WILSON). The story of their tumultuous affair is told from multiple perspectives, allowing a unique view of the relationship from each character’s vantage point. Between restless lives and reckless choices, Noah and Alison’s actions have lifelong effects, especially on their respective spouses, Helen (MAURA TIERNEY) and Cole (JOSHUA JACKSON). Alison’s grown-up daughter (ANNA PAQUIN( offers a glimpse into the inevitable consequences of these events. Amidst the backdrop of an ongoing murder investigation, their journey unfolds over five provocative seasons – altering the future of two families forever.



This 19-disc set is housed in a large keep case, similar to Paramount’s Star Trek series sets, and is a bit difficult to handle and get to the right disc. All of the features from the individual sets have been ported over.

There are Character Profiles for all the main actors for seasons one, two and four, and one for the town of Montauk; a few featurettes, Tale of Two Costumes, Tour of Montauk, Memory Lanes, Storytelling with Sarah Treem, Playing Both Sides, Dressing the Part, Sink Back Into the Ocean and Where Does It End?


VIDEO – 3.75/5, AUDIO – 3.0/5

Every episode is presented with a 16×9 enhanced widescreen aspect ratio as originally televised on Showtime. The picture looks on par with most modern TV shows and although not in HD, still was decent enough. Each episode is accompanied with a standard Dolby Digital 5.1 track, serviceable for a series that’s mostly dialogue-driven, though it can be a bit heavy in spots.
