Review: 'Betrayal' is a big, honkin' bore

First Published      Last Updated Sep 27 2013 09:41 am

After watching the pilot episode of ABC's Betrayal (Sunday, 9 p.m., Ch. 4), two questions immediately popped to mind.

First, could that possibly have been as boring as I thought?

Answer: Yes.

And, second, what were ABC executives thinking when they picked this up as a series?

Answer: I have absolutely no idea.

"Betrayal" is a grim, uninteresting and mind-numbing soap opera that's less interesting than looking out the window and watching your neighbors.

This series is about a married woman, Sara (Hannah Ware), and a married man, Jack (Stuart Townsend) - married to other people, that is - who are inexplicably attracted to one another. Quicker than you can say, "adultery," they're sleeping with each other.


p class="TEXT_w_Indent">This gets more complicated, but no more interesting, when Sara's husband, Drew (Chris Johnson), and Jack end up on opposite sides of a murder case.

It's muddled and, worse yet, dull.

The big "Betrayal" here is what ABC is perpetrating on the viewing public.
