I LOVE Emily VanCamp. I am a HUGE Brothers&Sisters fan, and while the storyline with her and Justin was a bit odd, I loved it! So, when I saw the teasers for Revenge, I wasn’t sold. First, it sounded like a completely cheesy plot line that would be incapable of holding the viewers’ attention for more than the first episode, maybe two. Let’s just say there’s a reason that I’m sitting at this computer right now instead of sleeping so I can go to work at ABC tomorrow morning!
A couple of nights ago, we got Hulu Plus because I miss my network shows, our antenna isn’t reliable and we ditched cable. Did I mention we made this decision the week before season premieres? Yeah, now our smartest move ever! So, after catching up on Castle and SVU (don’t even get me started on that one) I decided Revenge would be a good show to turn on while I fell asleep. Yes, I know you shouldn’t sleep with the TV on, but when you get used to it because your husband has to have it on (and so did your dad and your grandpa, so it’s kind of been a way of life forever) you pick up the habit.
Once again, I was wrong. It was NOT a good show to fall asleep to. The story line kept my interest and left me wanting the next episode. Seriously, I almost wish I hadn’t started watching so early in the season, this would be an awesome show to hunker down with on a snowy weekend. And yes, I’m starting to prepare mentally for that inevitability, I do live in WI.
It’s fun to try to decipher who is good and who is evil. There’s something satisfying in seeing Emily Thorne seek and get revenge on the people who royally screwed her life. I’m even intrigued by how things are going to work out with Nolan, the technogeek her dad invested with before he died, Jack, who as near as I can tell now owns the dog that was a birthday present to Emily back when she was Amanda, right before all hell broke loose, and does her friend Ashley have any clue of her real identity?
Oh, and I just now, as I put the picture into the post got the title imagery! Yep, this is what happens when you watch TV late at night, you don’t always catch on right away!
