TV Preview: THE AFFAIR

It’s that time of year again: back to school, back to work, and back to obsessing over new TV shows. One I’m really looking forward to is The Affair, starring Ruth Wilson, Dominic West, Joshua Jackson and Maura Tierney. The series cuts back and forth between the male and female perspective of a love affair.  Alison (Wilson), is a young woman waiting tables at a Hamptons diner, and she begins an affair with Noah (West), a public school teacher and aspiring novelist. Jackson plays Alison’s financially struggling husband, Cole, and Tierney plays Helen, Noah’s wife of seventeen years. From the looks of this trailer, there seems to be some sort of mystery involved. Will you be tuning in? The Affair premieres October 12 on Showtime.

In the meantime, this trailer promises a season of high drama and more changes for Downton.

Weekend Viewing: SALEM

If you’re a fan of American Horror Story or Sleepy Hollow, you’ll be excited for what’s brewing on WGN network this weekend. A new witch show, SALEM, premiers Sunday night at 10PM. From what I can tell from this preview, they aren’t holding anything back. Set in 1692, this show asks, “What could be worse than a witch hunt?” The answer, or course, is “A witch!” Yes, “Witches are real — and they are in Salem.” Check out this trailer.  (Warning: Adult content/graphic imagery.)

Do You Love Game of Thrones as Much as Stacey Kennedy?

I am a Game of Thrones junkie. Why? I honestly have no idea. I’m a romance author, which means I’m a big believer in having a happily-ever-after. Truthfully, any movies or TV shows that don’t end on a happy note leave me incredibly grumpy. I need that moment when I know that no matter what the characters have gone through that in the end they are happy. Now for anyone who has watched Game of Thrones, you’ll know that we haven’t seen a happily-ever-after in the series yet. Even as I watch the show I keep gasping in horror when someone dies or something horrible happens to one of the characters. And that seems to happen in every single episode, yet…I cannot get enough! So what is it that keeps me coming back for more, … Continued
