Has anyone else started this on Showtime? The official premiere is Sunday night, but the first episode is available on Showtime Anytime, and the PG-13 version is supposed to be on YouTube and a couple of other places.

It's about an affair (duh) being told from both points of view after the fact. They're being questioned by police but there's no indication of why. I really liked the story and format.

I haven't watched anything but the trailers they played during Masters of Sex.  I do plan on watching, mainly for Pacey.  It's set on the DVR but for various reasons I won't be able to watch it for a week.

I watched the premiere on SHO tonight. I was super excited for it from the previews, but I didn't really care for the format (1 perspective followed by another perspective).

That being said, I am a big fan of the actors (girl from Luther! McNulty!) so I feel I must support the show and continue watching. I am curious about how this plays out but hope the dual perspective thing doesn't feel so repetitive… I guess I am not a patient viewer!

Luther! I was wondering what else I'd seen the actress in. I like it so far. Hope it doesn't disappoint.

Yes! I loved Ruth Wilson as "Alice" on Luther and love that her character is "Alison" on this show! Lol! I found the first episode interesting enough to watch next week. But agree that this dual perspective can be a bit repetitive. I hope it's not like that the entire season.

I love it!  I think the two different views of what actually happened are fascinating and I'm totally intrigued by the fast forward part and how that will all tie in together!  The scene with the son in the beginning as they were getting ready to go away for the summer?? GAH! I so would have cancelled the trip and had that kid in counseling asap!  what the heck??!!

Just watched it, I really really liked it. I'm hooked and can't wait till next week already!

The first 15 minutes with the two kids and their scenarios were hard to watch though.

Plus, Pacey in sex scenes sha_clap2party0006drink

I was intrigued by the (ridiculously killer) cast, and watched based on that alone. The subject matter will be pretty painful to watch IMO and I don't know if I'll be able to hang. But I thought it was really well done and will at least give it a few episodes.

Oh wow! I just watched the first episode. It really makes you think about how and why people get into affairs and how they perceive/justify it. 

Any speculation on why they are being questioned by the police? Surely it must be the disappearance or death of someone? I can't wait for the 2nd episode but I don't think I'll be able to hang if they keep doing the his side – her side stories. Too repetitive and boring.

She also played Jane Eyre and was amazing in that role. I'm going to check out the show because the cast is insanely impressive, but, like someone else said, I am a little weary of the subject matter.

Anyone watch last nights episode? Noah and Allison's stories were vastly different this time…I think he's lying. Maybe using his book to blur the lines, create an alibi?? Who do you think was killed? I'm thinking Cole but that seems so obvious!

Um, yea I'm obsessed with this show.

Me too. I've hung in because of the differing pov's and the developing murder mystery. Otherwise I could care less about yet another story of a middle aged man having a mid life crisis induced affair with a sexy, life-giving younger woman.

That said, the whole discrepancy last night threw me for a loop. So far, their versions have meshed pretty well, just with one seeing the other as more predatory in the differing versions. I'm looking forward to next week!
