Episode 1.1
4 September 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Billed as a steamy drama about marital infidelities it failed to reach any kind of pleasurable heights.

Wanderlust is a six part drama by Nick Payne who adapts his own play. I reckon the story could had been told in three episodes at a stretch.

Joy (Toni Collette) is a therapist who is also recovering from a cycling accident. Her husband Alan (Steven Mackintosh) is an English teacher. She wants more adventurous sex, he just wants to play it safe. Both love each other but the spark has gone from their relationship.

Both end up having sex with different people and confess this to each other. Alan is shocked but Joy questions if monogamy is desirable for both of them. After all Alan would love to have sex with his colleague at school again.

Promiscuity may be the answer to the couple's problems but what was promised to be a sexy drama is a tepid dud if the opening episode is anything to go by.
