ABC's REVENGE is a highly addictive series. Thrilling, suspenseful and romantic, it plays like a darker version of Dawson's Creek for adults, which is a major accomplishment as few shows have achieved that level of awesome in a hot minute. The fact that they are able to get us to cheer for a protagonist whose entire motivation is to ruin the lives of the unjust is remarkable. Sure, they toss around a few flashbacks and offer up exposition in an attempt to justify our "hero" Emily Thorne's devious behavior, but I don't even think they need to do that. Honestly, watching 42 minutes of this woman diabolically weaving her way through an affluent community of wrongdoers and serving them up catastrophes fresh out of their very worst nightmare is satisfying enough. Plus Emily VanCamp is HOT as Gibraltar's Dungeon, so you know I'm fixin to cancel my appointments and make it a NETFLIX NIGHT! In this time of economic despair, REVENGE truly is the guilty pleasure that American's krave in the darkness of night.
Nothing makes American's feel better about life than seeing someone else's life ruined, which brings up a very good point: "What the f*$k is wrong with us as a society??" I don't know, but I'm fixin to wrap up some 3D color grading so I can knock out a few more episodes of this wonderful treat called ABC's REVENGE, which is my selection for NETFLIX PICK OF THE WEEK!!
