TV show description:
This drama TV show explores modern marriage at its midpoint through the lens of one husband and wife — Neil (Matt Passmore) and Grace Truman (Stephanie Szostak).

Neil has a successful career, a loving family, a beautiful house, a big-screen television, and more. So why does he feel like something is still missing? The truth is that 18 years of marriage and countless 80 hour weeks have left Neil feeling disconnected from everything and everyone he loves.

After a big outburst on a plane leads him to quit his job, Neil stumbles across his wife Grace in the throes of passion with another man. Furious, Neil confronts his wife’s lover, Simon, only to learn the more shocking truth — their meeting was a professional arrangement. Grace is seeing a male escort.

The news hits Neil like punch to the gut, but when he inadvertently winds up with Simon’s phone, he makes the decision try out the escort business for himself in the hope that the experience might offer some new insight. As it turns out, Neil’s good looks, skill closing deals, and apparent sexual prowess make him a natural.

He soon finds himself a hot property — both with a local madam (who is intrigued by this new stud on the scene) and his old boss (who is impressed by Neil’s newfound swagger).

But just because Neil’s life is getting a shot in the arm doesn’t mean that his old problems have disappeared. As if the hole in his marriage and his daughter’s teenage growing pains aren’t enough, he also has to deal with Simon, who isn’t too pleased to have his business stolen out from under him, and isn’t afraid to make things a lot more difficult for Neil.

Grace had big aspirations as a young woman but passed up a Fulbright scholarship and a career in the arts to raise a family with Neil. She deeply loves Neil and their daughter Anika but as her old dreams have receded further and further into the past, she’s begun to feel as empty and unfulfilled as the open houses she now decorates part time.

So when a night chasing excitement leads to an encounter with Simon, a male escort, Grace begins to take advantage of his services. Even if it doesn’t fill the void in her life, it’s something new and exciting. But while the arrangement begins as a professional one, like any relationship it evolves over time. And now that Neil knows Grace’s secret, things are about to become a lot more complicated.

Sexy and suave, sensitive and sophisticated, Simon (Blair Redford) has something that women just respond to which is probably why many of them, pay handsomely for the pleasure of his company. Simon has really started to make a name for himself in the field, so he’s not too happy when Neil steals that name, along with his client list.

Gee M. get a grip, turn it off if you don’t like it, or better yet trow your TV away. If I don’t care for a program, I won’t watch it, simple as that. But your tirade is just a bit much, really, tell us how you really feel. I’ll leave you with that…

With only the season finale remaining, we can now say the following.

SATISFACTION is a one-hour weekly television show. If it were a full-length 2-hour movie showing at your local neighborhood theater, how would it be different? (Assuming it is not totally re-written … plot, script, and story line)

(1) We could expect the characters to be totally nude, rather than the partial nudity we’ve seen so far.
(2) We could expect to see sex being performed, in all its variations, with nothing left to the imagination.
(3) We could expect the movie to have an “X-Rating.”
(4) We could expect everyone to simply call it “PORN.”

Why don’t we see nudity and sex in the TV show? Because there are Federal regulations that control what you can, and cannot, put on public television. It would be against the Law.

Why would we call it porn? The “Duck Principle” applies. If it looks like a Duck … walks like a Duck … swims like a Duck … and quacks like a Duck —– It’s a Duck. SATISFACTION is porn. It has been edited for television as required by Federal Law, but it is still porn nonetheless. The technical name for it is “soft porn.”

The entire story is pornographic in nature. It would have to be totally re-written (script, plot, and story line) to qualify as something other than porn.

People who don’t watch a lot of television had never heard of either Matt Passmore and Stepanie Szostak before SATISFACTION. Now they will be remembered as being just a couple of porn stars.

The show is about the sexual adventures of two people … no more, no less. They are technically still married, but their relationship collapsed long-long ago; and as stated, the marriage is now nothing more than a legal technicality. They now only have sex when the hormones are out of control. But they do have sex with just about everyone else in town, regularly. Both are into prostitution.

SATISFACTION is utterly unbelievable and unrealistic. As a result, it fails to qualify as “Drama.” It is about sex … and nothing but sex. Every word spoken by ever character is intended to do nothing more than lead to the next sexual encounter. Thus, it is “Porn” … plain and simple.

It should be cancelled. But if not, it should only be shown at a very deep-night time, and only on a restricted access cable channel.

I love the show and watched Matt Passmore in The Glade also and was so disappointed when the show was cancelled. Glad they got him back on the screen would love to see him in movies too.

I love this show. It is very different from everything else on TV. Actors are all excellent, and well chosen for their parts. The young couple struggling with their young love and love of music that brought them together is an excellent addition. Please don’t cancel! I will be heart broken!!

This is a great show. Don’t even think about canceling. Passmore is so convincing in his role, that he could be the next Tom Cruise or Robert Redford. He’s not only gorgeous but he’s very sensitive. With the combination of topnotch writing and an excellent cast, you have a winner.
