Marital relationships

Unlike the typical romantic drama, this is an un-romantic one. It is vaguely based on the movie Unfaithful with Richard Gere and Diane Lane, except without all the adult sexual themes and murder of that typical Hollywood movie.

The theme of the show is the gradual estrangement of the wife from her husband, for various reasons. Not all of them reasonable.. And when she meets a book store owner whom she falls in love with. It is sad to see the husband lose his wife and his child at the end.

Overall, a very good show. We saw this in 2020. And when we went to go over it again this year, it was gone. Gone from Netflix, never to be seen again.

Netflix has been doing that to more and more shows. I hate it when that happens. Now there is no way to see it again. Isn't it sad when in this day and age, you see something and all you have to remember it is your own memory of it?

The story was pointless

I want to first start off addressing the male main lead's acting skills. His growth, care, sorrow, and anger were all compelling; I felt it wholeheartedly. Upon facing his wife (during an ordeal) his tears flows, but his face is red. He brings both compassion and anger during every scene when he believes he will lose his wife. With that being said beyond him the show is not worth watching. The MFL and the side dude have simply no chemistry. She is just looking for a way out, after making a choice of giving up her career. Had another man come along at anytime that gave her attention she surely would have fallen for him. But beyond this you are asked all the time why do you love the second lead (side dude) again? He provides her with little romance, and they have nothing in common. It was a boring watch, and I was not rooting for anyone.
