Hubs and I have been on a downward spiral of watching bad films! It is amazing that we are able to watch anything beside Little Dude’s shows. Watching films has been our favorite date night this past summer. We would look forward to chilling on the couch together and watching a great film with a glass of vino.
However, our luck in the film department has not been so fabulous. I’m not sure what it was or what happened in our picking selection, but hubs has been picking some of the most depressing, pointless, and just dumbest films! Each film without fail has been worse then the one before, just terrible. It is very disappointing to waste 2-hours on a terrible film.
On a AWESOME note… We have hit the jackpot with the new TV show Satisfaction! So instead of watching a film we just changed our attention to binge watching TV shows! Thank you USA Network online! Our latest binge watching has been Satisfaction! We are trying to finish the series before the season finale September 18! If you haven’t seen it yet, you need to!
SATISFACTION is an USA Network drama that comes from Universal Cable Productions (UCP) and executive producer/creator Sean Jablonski (“Suits,” “Nip Tuck”) and Russ Krasnoff (“Community”) of Krasnoff/Foster also serves as executive producer. Satisfaction is a fun, sexy, thought provoking series that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Matt Passmore plays, Neil Truman, a well known and sort after investment banker and his wife, Grace Truman played by Stephanie Szostak, who was working on building her design business after she spend years staying home with their beautiful now 16-year-old daughter, Anika played by Michelle DeShon. The family appeared to be living the dream, the beautiful house, fabulous cars, a daughter in private school and money.
When Neil catches Grace having an affair with a younger male escort, Simon played by Blair Redford with whom she is paying. Neil sneaks out of the house before anyone sees him. Neil leaves out the back door before they notice and as he leaves he hears someone leave out the front door. It was Simon. Neil sees him leave, then follows him. Neil catches up and confronts Simon about the affair with Grace. If I’m honest, I’m kind of glad he managed to catch him face-to-face. I’ve heard of horror stories whereby one of the couple installs something like a Windows 10 Keylogger to track what the other is up to, which is when they find out about the affair. Face-to-face might be harder at first, but I’d much prefer it that way I think.
After a heated argument, Neil followed Simon’s advise of “waiting 24- hour to confront his wife, Grace”. What Neil does next is what you will have to watch for yourself. I cannot confirm nor deny whether Neil retaliates by soliciting the services of an escorte quebec.
Without giving all the fabulous details all away… Neil and Grace each find themselves in some interesting situations. They are both looking for something more out of life and find themselves moving closer to answers. Which becomes the question the series asks, “Would you risk your marriage to save it?” I have to say, I was uncomfortable at first about watching a series about a couple that has an affair since I’m happily married. However, after giving Satisfaction a chance the series is not about affairs, but about saving a marriage of two people growing apart. Many people can relate to this, although some relationships don’t always end in them getting back together, but end in separation and divorce. A friend of mine recently went through this, and it was emotionally, financially, and mentally devastating for him. Fortunately, he had his friends and family around, giving him somewhere he could get emotional support. He even found a law firm similar to Nathens, Siegel LLP, that could support him through his divorce. This show just reminded me that some people can fight for their marriage, but there are sadly others who can’t even if they wanted to.
If you haven’t seen Satisfaction start binge watching it now and get caught up on the series online on USA Network Hulu and via On-Demand. You will crack up, ponder, and find yourself on the edge of your seat wanting to know what happens next! Check it out on Thursday nights on USA Network (10-11 p.m. ET). You will thank me!
