Reasons I Can't Stop Watching Showtime's The Affair

  1. Joshua Jackson's beard
  2. Those rare moments when Dominic West's and Ruth Wilson's English accents slip out
  3. That weird little sea shanty of a theme song by Fiona Apple
  4. Those early kissing scenes between Alison and Noah that melt your spleen
  5. The Rashomon device that always has me thinking, "Yes, but how does Alison remember this?"
  6. The eternal battle between my sympathy for Helen and my annoyance with her
  7. It's slower than molasses in January. You know you love it.
