No, no, no, I’m not condoning not revenge as in actually getting back at someone for something they’ve done to you. Rather, I’m suggesting Revenge, the ABC tv show.
Although it’s on at 10 p.m. on Wednesdays (after Modern Family), I try to make it a point to stay awake and watch. It’ riveting and suspenseful with a touch of cheese-tastic drama.
According to the website,
“REVENGE is universal. As primal as the need for love, sex, or the feeding of a searing hunger. Revenge crosses time and culture. It starts unwinnable wars and visits generations of blood feuds on families with unsettled scores. Revenge is as old as humanity. Dark and dramatic and endless.” – – Mike Kelley, Creator of REVENGE
Wealth, beauty and status define the people in this town, but one woman is willing to destroy everyone for the sake of revenge.
Emily Thorne (Emily Van Camp) is new to the Hamptons. She’s met some of her wealthy neighbors, has made a few new friends and seemingly blends into the town. But something is a little odd about a young girl living in a wealthy town all on her own, and the truth is that Emily isn’t exactly new to the neighborhood. In fact, this was once her old neighborhood, until something bad happened that ruined her family and their reputation. Now Emily is back, and she’s returned to right some of those wrongs in the best way she knows how – with a vengeance.
While the show can be, at times, a bit teen-dramaish, the suspenseful plot keeps me coming back for more. The season is most likely coming to and end, but if you’re looking for something to catch up on over the summer, I’d recommend Revenge.
