Betrayal TV Show Review

Pilot Scoop: Betrayal

ABC is upping the dramatic ante this year when steamy new pilot Betrayal premieres tonight. We've seen lots of ill-fated romances on TV over the years, but this series strives to make the most dangerous match of them all when a man and woman — both married to different people — share an instant and powerful attraction to each other. It's a pretty soapy story, but does it work? I checked out the pilot, and I'm sharing my thoughts on the series.

  • What it's about: Married artist Sara (Hannah Ware) meets and shares an undeniable connection with the also-married Jack (Stuart Townsend). When Jack's family becomes entangled in a murder scandal, Sara realizes that her prosecutor husband (Chris J. Johnson) is set to square off against Jack in court in one of the highest-profile cases in Chicago.
  • Where it works: James Cromwell plays Jack's father-in-law, head of the family business, and he's excellent — though American Horror Story fans may not be able to look at him without a shiver.
  • Where it doesn't: This show is too soapy, and the sexual tension feels forced. There's a lot of swelling music and meaningful glances, but when it comes down to it, the romance just isn't intriguing.
  • You might like this show if: You wish Revenge had even more sexual tension.
  • When it's on: Sundays at 10 p.m. on ABC

The original, dutch version was very good. Unfortunately only a few will watch this version. Just like the series Red Widow I am affraid it will suffer from the same things; too much cutting off all the edges, making it too safe, and in the netherlands the best actors did it, I am not sure about these actors. So if you can go watch the original series of Betrayal and Red Widow.
