I'm not a big fan of TV series, but this one just keeps me glued to my seat and makes me crave for more. Great story, superb plot, and the characters are very well portrayed. When this show is on, nothing else seems to matter. My world just goes on stand still and I couldn't care less about the rest of the world.
Awesome show, absolutely love it!! All the characters are acted well and the story is very well written. Kudos to Steven Sassen, his bro Roger is an old friend.
Emily Van Camp is perfect both in her beauty and the perfect face for a vengeful person. Hell hath no fury face and presentation. Keep evolving and never get cancelled. I liked Trauma , another of Steven's shows, too bad it got cancelled, it had alot of promise.
for those of you who say revengen is bad....this series does NOT promote revenge. it shows the opposite: that revenge kills you soul. Nolan tried in the first parts to convince Emily that she should just leave it, and get happy with Jakck, but he is sucked into it, just as Emity is.
The series reminds me of Dallas en Dynasty, all those intrigues. And wasn't the ranch on Dallas called Southfork?
While "revenge" is not an attitude I subscribe to, I really like this show and am really surprised that I am so hooked on it! I wish the network would run through all new episodes then start from the beginning again. This "mix and match" they have been playing is frustrating...
If you want to keep rating up, please!! stop keeping us waiting for weeks to see a new episode. Its an amazing show. Keep us interested in it. Its so dissappointing when you count down the whole week for another great episode to find out its not on. By the way,the show "revenge for real"by 20/20 is a turn off, what is that, do you actually think we are going to watch it because you called revenge for real?
When i first saw the ad's for this show I figure it would be easy to figure out what was going to happen next. I must admit I am happy to be proved wrong. Very original show. Nice chance of pace. Can't wait for the new episodes to air. It has been a long time since that has happened to me. Thank you ABC.
This show was a pleasant surprise: it's addictive, fun and good soapy escapism. Yes it's campy, but it works and the acting and writing is good. Look out for Madeleine Stowe, as the bitchy Victoria and Gabriel Mann, as Nolan.... they both steal the show
When I saw the ads for this new show last fall 2011, I decided not to watch it. A friend I respected told me it was much better than the 'trashy' previews. I went to abc.com to watch the first few episodes I had missed. I was hooked after the first episode. The writing, acting, locations, and characters are outstanding. Every episode gets better and more complex. I've watched every show 2-3 times, thanks to DVR. I look forward to watching each show and then discussing with my friend who recommended it. I especially like the platonic chemistry between Emily and Nolan. Emily does a great job portraying her character who is in love with Jack while pretending to love Daniel. The close-up camera shots as well as the zoomed (in and out) scenery shots are excellent. I can't wait for the next episode!!!! I hope this show continues for a long time.
It is not long ago I found this show, and I saw 9 episodes in a row. I am writing about revenge in movies and tv shows - and this show i so helping me on my Bachelor thesis, especially on what difference there could be on women and men's revenge.
I love this show so far, but I must say that the two latest episodes have been a little (and say a little) bit doll... but I must say the drama never dies and why is Emily/Amanda so hostile towards Nolan he is only there to help, and she needs help if she is going to keep her secret (that she is the real Amanda Clarke) from all the people in the Hamptons and especially the Graysons and Daniel.
I was drawn to this show because i thought it would be remeniscent of Gossip girl slash Dirty sexy money. I was wrong, the plott runs thicker than blood and it hungers for Revenge. Its not only cocky in its own way, but its fun and endlessly gripping.
As I plopped my huge mug of coffee on the table, and egerly pressed play; I thought to myslef"rememeber to get up for work in the morning" I had watched 4 episodes in a row,whichisa new recorded for me. Never before have i been so invested in a show. It could not have come at a better time, most of us in this ecconomy have nothing better to do then to observe fictional characters on a sceen.
These characters however are like to other. Emily's revenge for her father, is not at all a characteristic that many female protagonists aspire to. She is dertermind to bring down the Grayson's and anyone that gets in her way. Including her lover Daniel. Emily has to fake every move, breath, and gesture. It sounds exhausting but it keeps us o our toes. What does she have in store for her enemy's. Is it not sad that such a young person has as a terrible perstective. Revenge is a plauge that is ot oly distructived to ones enemy but also ones soul.
Before Emily could wishper a word, she seemed to portray a woman who has lived many lives dispite her age. Alone and isolated she studies her prey like a born preditor. It freshing to see Nolan come to her company dispite, him beeing unwelcomed by Emily.
When we interact with the Grayson's their lives are predictably superfical and flaky. With out the affluence and power they would be regular citizens. But its clear that their influencence over people runs deep. In some epsiodes we see how power and control is just an illusion.
Therefore it is so easy for Emily to infultrate their premise. Daniel obviously falls for her but i the openig credits we see him fall to his death at his engagement part. What happened is Daniel set to be the callateral damage or does Emily really fall for him. The thing we love about he is that sometimes when she is faking it can be ambitious. Alsoher relationship with Nolan appeares to be somewhat unclear. Is it just partneship or is it companignship.
I love how the two house on the beach hold so many secrets and scandls it could feed the gossip magazines for decades. Unlike gossip girl, Revenge has a more perosnal tone to it. After all its all about a woman who hasnothing to lose bt herself.
So far this show is off to a great start. There is a lot of history to this show and they do a great job of flashing back to show bits and pieces of it as opposed to trying to deliver all the past upfront.
The characters are becoming so much more complex. You start to see various sides of the conflicts and while you know that David Clarke was innocent and didn't deserve what happened to him, nor did Young Amanda Clarke. Everyone else there is shades of gray.
The show does a lot of voiceovers particularly at the beginning and ending of episodes but the writing on those voiceovers and the delivery of the lead character Emily Thorne/Amanda Clarke is exceptional.
It is about halfway throught he first season so it will be interesting to see where they go and if they choose to expand it into a series rather than a one season mini-series.
Many are calling it a modern day Count of Monte Cristo and there are definetely comparisons between the book and this tv show.
I admit that ,though I had the show in my "to watch" list, didn't have so high expectations.Maybe that's because I love the Alexandre Dumas novel and I'm usually disappointed by small screen adaptations of novels...
Happy to say that it exceeded my expectations.The cast is incredibly solid, Emily in the lead role is amazing,the story is unfolded in a very good pace..
In general the show manages to keep your interest in very high levels.Hope it keeps going like this in the future.
This is an awesome show.I look forward to watching the show every Wednesday .I have watched it from the beginning.Amanda Clarke played by Emily Van Camp get revenge on the people that hurt her father and caused his death.She gets revenge in different clever ways.I can't wait until she hooks up with Jack Porter he is soooooo handsome.
When I first saw commercials for the show, it didn't look at all interesting to me, but I read several good reviews so thought I ought to give it a chance, and I am so glad that I did! It is probably the show I look forward to the most. I love the twists and turns and the delightfully clever way that Emily exacts revenge. Even though I don't really support her plan for vengeance, I can still appreciate how intelligently she goes about getting revenge. This show leaves me thinking about it days after a showing. I'm glad it got picked up!
This is the story of a young woman & her return to the site, Southampton, NY, where she lost her Dad to the greed & lies of their rich & powerful neighbors. I'm not a fan of flashbacks but these were well done & necessary to understand the whole reason behind the revenge plot. Apparently, her Dad was set up to take the fall for channeling money to terrorists who used the money to finance an attack on a jetliner that killed 246 Americans. He was arrested for treason & later died leaving her with journals with details of the deception & enough money for her to enact her revenge. She returns to slowly take revenge on the people that destroyed her & her father's lives. I think it will be a very interesting show!
