We need to talk about “The Affair” (again).  So all this time Noah stabbed himself?  I wish he had finished the job.  Talk about a loathsome character.  And no, I don’t feel bad for him because of his crappy childhood.  Plenty of people have hardships and don’t become self-destructive nymphomaniacs.  I know the show has been renewed for another season so we’re probably stuck with this lame character, but I’d much rather focus on Helen and Cole.

I’m not sure how the show intends to wrap everything up in one hour tonight, which probably means that it won’t.  Why do we need the distraction of this random French woman?  Why does Noah need another woman fawning all over him?  Why does Noah need to be in the finale at all?  Did Brendan Fraser gain weight for the role or did he just get fat?  Burning questions, all.

It’s hard to make any predictions given how unpredictable the show’s been, which is one of the reasons it’s a great show.  I thought season 2 was much better than the current season.

I saw the first episode of Riverdale and I’ll stick around for a few more, if only to watch the actress playing Veronica. She’s just about the only thing this show has going for it, besides the snarky millennial dialogue.

Homeland is off to a slow start but I understand the producers have to set the table for the season.  It looks like Saul gets kidnapped again, so I expect that Carrie will come up with some crazy scheme to save him.  I wish Quinn had died last season because I can’t stand watching him behave so recklessly.

Happy tv watching!
