Blogtober | TV Show | Revenge

Recently someone from work lent me the first season of Revenge, and I am officially well and truly hooked on it. I would really really recommend it. I love that it isn't predictable because that is just one of the most annoying things in a TV programme, and it is really clever. It's also great that he actor of Eric in Gossip Girl is in it, and also the young Jenna Rink in 13 going on 30! I am so bad with names so actually felt quite proud to have known some of the actors...


Revenge is based in the Hamptons and focuses on a girl named Emily Thorne. I'd say she is in her late 20's and she wants revenge on the people that put her innocent Dad into jail back when she was a little girl. These people live in the Hamptons and, with no family left, she moves herself there to plot against the people who plotted against her father - leaving him dead in Jail and her locked up in Juvy for her entire childhood. I love the fact that from the first episode she is plotting against these people in ways that you would not expect - it is really cleverly done and I really enjoyed the first episode.

I thought I might be a little scared by it (considering I was actually really scared of PLL!!!) but it is actually absolutely fine. I just find myself wanting to watch it alot more than Dan does, but we have decided to watch it together so I will just have to wait. We are only about 6/7 episodes in so far but I can tell that this is going to become a regular thing for us to be watching. I already want to keep watching so I can put together the pieces of what happened in the first episode.

Although there are a lot of plot twists and changes this is something easy to watch and the perfect way to unwind and relax after a day at work. Especially as the weather changes and becomes colder and colder, I know that this is going to be a series which we watch quite regularly and I am totally OK with that. I'm so pleased I gave it a chance because it is something I may not usually have chosen to watch but I have surprised myself by absolutely loving it!

Best of all, I think it's going to get me thinking about the situation that Emily is in. I don't know whether I would be able to forgive people, or if I would want revenge like she does. There is more to it than what I have explained as I wouldn't want to spoil it for anyone - just incase - but I think she may be going into this whole revenge thing based on something that she has been given by her father 10 years after she last saw him. Who knows whether it is true or not, I guess I will just have to wait and find out...

Have you seen Revenge? What did you think of it?
