Revenge: Discussion Thread

I don't get why they're promoting this show so heavily. The concept is tired and the only recognizable face is VanCamp. I think she's got what it takes to be a show lead but she can't carry the show by herself.

I'd say Madeleine Stowe is a bigger name than EVC

Because it actually has potential and it's a very enjoyable, solid hour of entertainment. Van Camp and Stowe are amazing in it, there are some interesting characters/faces and it is very nicely shot. Will it catch on? Maybe yes, maybe not, but at least it stands a chance.

I think previewing the pilot like that can definitely cause good word of mouth.

I'd be interested in seeing it

Also, what's with the infinity symbol instead of the "g"? Anyone get what the significance of it is?

Saw a live-action version of the promo poster at my mall yesterday. The promotion for this show is seriously out of control, lol. If they use some clips beyond the pilot for the commercials, maybe they can lure more people in but I'm sick to death of seeing the same 30 shots in varying positions 10 times an hour.

If it fails no one can say it was for lack of promotion, that's for sure.

Funny, she was in a movie called Revenge too with Kevin Costner... But to be fair she hasn't been the name she was back in the 80s for a while now...

Finally watched this. It took me a while, but I liked it. Didn't even recognize Buffy's Marcus Blucas as Emily/Amanda's dad. I'm not completely sold--some things I wasn't sure about (I mean she's SOO clever--but maybe we'll find out why she is and that's why she was locked up, the revelation about her being the waitress who served the soup left me a bit weird, I guess I wanted to see how she got the uniform and nametag from the waitress, though maybe she used some of her vast money--but she certainly thought up that plan quickly on the spot). But I'll keep watching. Creator/showrunner Mike Kelly also created Swingtown, which was far from a perfect show but one I enjoyed, though I know nobody else who even watched it. He has said that every single question and mystery raised in the pilot will be answered by episode 13, so I guess it'll remain to be seen how they can grow the show past its initial premise--if they manage to get that far.

I am curious as to where this show is filmed. I assume it is in California, but given that it takes places in the Hamptons, I was wondering if it is actually filmed in New York.

OLTL_fan, thank you for answering my question.

Although I'm really enjoying this show, I do wonder how realistic of a portrayl it is. Are the rich who live in the Hamptons really this shallow and status conscious?
