Here is a thread for all to talk and discuss Revenge both in the run up to it's debut and during the season.
ABC (ended 2015)
I liked it, I don't think it was "awesome" but it was better than average. At least, I enjoyed it more than "Ringer"
With the fall season just starting up there's a lot I'd like to watch. But I think I'll give it a chance.
Anyway, what I can't figure out is why Amanda spent time in jail. Maybe her father was set up, but what the heck did Amanda do to warrant spending time in jail???????????
I imagine so... she already lost her mother and then her dad was arrested. Not just arrested, but probably one of the most hated men in the country / world. And she believed it.
With all of that going on, it's not hard to believe someone would become devastated, lash out, and pretty much spiral out of control. Drugs, thefts, assault, etc.
I imagine we'll eventually find out why she was there as the series continues. I imagine it will be a series of flashbacks to show how much she suffered after her father's arrest and public trial. Kids picking on her / hurting her, foster parents, resentful guardians, etc.
Some Europeans may think America has an "interesting" legal system, between our death penalties and what-not. But don't worry, we don't lock up children because their parents committed crimes.
I REALLY loved it. I'm excited for next week's episode. My only complaint is the "revenge" part. I feel like Lydia didn't get enough done to her. She was having an affair and gets sent out of the Hamptons with a Van Gogh worth millions of dollars lol. She obviously didn't care about her "best friend" all that much or she wouldn't have been sleeping with her husband. So ruinning her social circle didn't seem like much of a big deal to me. Otherwise I really liked it. I just hope Emily/Amanda is more harsh on the next people.
Excellent acting. Well written. Really enjoyable to watch. Has great potential.I am impressed!Madeleine Stowe is an excellent Wicked Queen/control freak/matriarch. Emily VanCamp, I always love to watch, such a beautiful girl. Man, could the little girl playing young Emily, scream! Can't wait for the next episode. Yay! All the new shows have started and (almost) all the old one's have returned.
