At once deeply observed and intriguingly elusive, The Affair explores the emotional effects of an extramarital relationship. Noah is a New York City schoolteacher and novelist who is happily married, but resents his dependence on his wealthy father-in-law. Alison is a young waitress trying to piece her life and marriage back together in the wake of a tragedy. Set in Montauk at the end of Long Island, the provocative drama unfolds separately from both the male and female perspectives, using the distinct memory biases of both to tell the story.
Time jumps are quite the common TV trope: they can help revitalize an aging series by allowing it to explore new storylines, and for teenage/high school shows, they open up new creative avenues while also aging the characters to more closely match their portrayers. Let’s take a look at some of the shows that have skipped ahead a few years into the future.
