Revenge: Intrigue

One of the best television drama’s this Fall has been the television show Revenge starring Emily Van Camp a orphan who formerly resided in the Hamptons with her Father until he was framed by the Grayson’s for a crime he didn’t commit. Emily plays Amanda who assumes the identity of Emily Thorne a wealthily young socialite living in the Hamptons seeking revenge on all those who betrayed her Father. Her only accomplish is Nolan a computer genus and perhaps the wealthiest person in the Hamptons. Emily’s Father was partners with Nolan and therefore Emily inherited all of her Father’s wealth.

And Emily has been busy turning the Hamptons upside down. She has seduced Daniel Grayson Victoria’s son, she has exposed Mr. Graysons’ mistress to Victoria, and she has ruined a politician’s career. Emily has been very busy indeed.

But what is so interesting about this show is that it starts with the death of Daniel Grayson, Emily’s finance’.

And while revenge is sweet and Nolan is enjoying it but there is no shortage of bad characters in this show. Actually Emily fits in rather well amongst this rather hard vindictive society called the Hamptons. Being bad has never been so much fun as it is in Revenge.

Review

The show is well written and the voice overs make Emily more human in such a dark role. In all reality she is the light as she is perhaps the only person in the Hamptons that has a good reason to be angry and she is not financially motivated unlike the other characters.

This show is better then a a night time soap opera but does still have some of the elements of it. There are some touching moments like when Jack shows up to fix Emily's swing.

Emily does reveal her true character when she begins to care for Daniel and confronts Tyler. Frank is still lurking about and is clearly in love with Victoria.

What is so interesting about this show is the more flawed the character the more intriguing their story line. This show has it all. It is has every deadly sin with money and sophistication thrown in to enhance the plot line. And there is a philosophical analysis by Emily as she works her revenge which she clams her father has left for her to carry out.

      Hi WD Curry111,

      Thank you and I wish I had interns. No I just set them up in advance so when the show airs I am able to get them on the net quickly. It is to give a preview for those that are in other time zones so they can decide if they want to tune in or not.

      And I have been very fortunate in that the writing this Fall season has been good.

      I did miss last week as I was moving so Terra nova didn't get a review but the rest I have managed to keep up.

      Thanks for reading, commenting and providing feedback.

      Your reviews are great. How do you crank them out like that? Do you have a bunch of interns working for you?

      Hi JT! Yes, this is by far my favorite new show this season. The intrigue is building and I love how Emily systematically (and intelligently) gets back at her enemies.

      This show is GOOD!
