Storyline

17 years ago, little Amanda Clarke unwittingly witnessed a plot between her father's lover Victoria and her husband, hedge-fund CEO Conrad Grayson, to frame her unsuspecting father David, his subordinate manager, for their fraud, and was later sent to jail herself. David's former business protégé and sole remaining confident Nolan Ross, now Wall Street's golden wonder boy, insists to help after recognizing her, despite her new persona as socialite Emily Thorne, a newcomer in the Hamptons summer party circuit, over which his wife Victoria 'reigns'. Conrad Grayson has an induced pseudo-cardiac crisis at the right time to expose his affair with Victoria's best friend Lydia Davis, who is quickly but discretely expelled. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Emily Thorne: First words: When I was a little my understanding of revenge was as simple as the Sunday school proverbs it hid behind. Neat little morality slogans, like 'Do unto others' and 'Two wrongs don't make a right.' But two wrongs can never make a right because two wrongs can never equal each other. For the truly wronged real satisfaction can only be found in one of two places absolute forgiveness or mortal vindication. This is not a story about forgiveness."

A great start to the series!
1 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Honestly speaking, I had no expectations of this show whatsoever. I didn't even have it in my must-watch list, but I am so glad I gave it a chance, because it was amazing!!

The storyline was intense, the cast was perfect and I couldn't find anything wrong with the show. Emily VanCamp does an amazing job in her role as Amanda/Emily. Kudos to the young girl who also plays Amanda, she was terrific! The story was well-paced, and I enjoyed how we got flash backs of the characters to see how they were related to Emily's father. The scene where Victoria finds out about Lydia at the party was epic. I also liked the scene where Sammy runs to Emily, even though Jack doesn't recognize her. I find Nolan's character also interesting, and would like to know why he has such an interest on Emily.

My issue with the pilot episode was that I felt they revealed too much in the opening scenes, and I think it would have been better if they just started off with Emily moving in to the Hamptons itself, rather than showing the engagement scenes. Also, I didn't care much for Declan and his interest in Daniel's sister Charlotte, but they didn't focus on that too much. Other than that, it was a perfect opening to what I hope to be a great show that lasts a few seasons.

If you are a fan of the last Sidney Sheldon or Aaron Spelling's works, you will definitely enjoy "Revenge". Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the pilot episode for Revenge, and cannot wait to see what happens next.
