September 30, 2012 marked the premiere of the second season of Revenge. Can you feel our excitement through the channels of cyberspace?
Cause we love this show. We ooze with appreciation for this show. From the writers, to the actors, to the crew…we. love. it. Got that? In the days of reality television obsession, it’s SO REFRESHING TO HAVE AN ACTUAL SHOW WITH A SCRIPT! Like, a REAL script, with a plot, characters, climax, twists, turns….you get the picture.
For those of you who do not know, Revenge is loosely based on The Count of Monte Christo, (or so we’ve heard), and it’s just…deliciously intoxicating. At the heart of the story is Emily Thorne, played by commanding Emily VanCamp. Emily’s father, David Clarke, was framed and then murdered by Conrad Grayson and his corporation. Tune in to season one to catch up on those details, because after THIS post, all of our posts at The Write Teacher regarding this show will definitely spoil it for you if you read before watching.
As creator Mike Kelley says,” REVENGE is universal. As primal as the need for love, sex, or the feeding of a searing hunger. Revenge crosses time and culture. It starts unwinnable wars and visits generations of blood feuds on families with unsettled scores. Revenge is as old as humanity. Dark and dramatic and endless.”
Go. Watch. Now.
