The Affair: The Final Season #TheAffair #GiftedProduct

Have you seen the series The Affair?  I haven’t seen ‘The Affair’ so reviewing ‘The Final Season’ was a little difficult for me. Although you can watch it on its own, without a background of the story it felt like I had jumped into the middle of a book.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this film for review. The opinions of this blog are my own. I’m not a professional in any way but I am a movie fan.
I would’ve enjoyed how the characters had evolved and how they arrived at ‘The Affair: The Final Season’.  Having explained this, I can say that I did enjoy ‘The Final Season’ and plan on seeing ‘The Complete Series’ as soon as I possibly can.
The acting was overall fine enough; however, in some instances it seemed a little over-dramatic?  Although I was left wanting more knowledge of the events that led up to ‘The Final Season’, it was fully apparent that this intriguing drama series explores the emotional effects of an extramarital affair.  Point taken: don’t lose control.
Creators:  Hegai Levi and Sarah Treem
Included:  Special Feature – Where Does It End?
I chose not to fully dive into a full on review because I believe it wouldn’t be fair.  Suffice it to say the this series has earned its 3 Golden Globe Awards, and many others!
