October 20th, 2014 3:52pm EDT
The Affair
The Affair is back with its second episode complete with a brand new title sequence and song courtesy of Fiona Apple. The new intro is a nice antecedent to the drama with its evocative beach-themed visuals and dramatic musical style; it certainly sets the stage for what is to come.

If the pilot for the series introduces us to the main characters and its compelling narrative structure, then the second episode begins to weave the intricate web of circumstances/events that bring these people to where they are in the present day. The narrative unfolds like a Rube Goldberg machine, little bits ...

'Mulaney' Season 1, Episode 3 Review: Large, Shaky Cursive

October 20th, 2014 10:59am EDT
