It’s not a big secret to many that I am a huge fan of good TV Series and Movies. From the high school drama of Gossip Girl to Sex and the City, House M.D. and Grey’s Anatomy etc. So now I have come to share my recent love, Revenge. I guess I just came across Revenge on my blog hoppings and Tweets from the people I follow. Unlike Vampire Diaries, Revenge got me hooked just by the very first episode. I know its going to be promising. If I can make any comparison, Revenge is Gossip Girl for mature adults. For those who spreads either Gossips or Lies for a cause. And well, Gossip Girl spreads facts just so she can prove she knows everything about the Upper East Siders but in Revenge, lies are told and facts are manipulated by the main heroine, Amanda Clarke/Emily Thorne so she can manipulate the truth and people so she can avenge her father’s death. Yeah I know, it sounds awfully like our local telenovela plots but of course right from the start, we know Emily’s character is the mean one here, or not. The story solely revolves on that. And unlike local telenovelas, the way she delivers her cold serving of revenge is not at all full of drama. The main character and villain’s both so composed actually. But then let me just tell you more about the characters instead:
Emily Thorne played by Emily VanCamp. Real name’s Amanda Clarke, daughter of David Clarke whom the Greyson’s had framed for a crime he did not commit. I think she mastered the “Poker Face” technique cause she’s always just so calm about everything. Or maybe it’s just that she’s a breath of fresh air from our local telenovela with so much tears and hatred on their sleeves.
Victoria Greyson played by Madeleine Stow. She’s the practically the head of the Greyson family and the “queen”of Hamptons. I think she’s so classy and gorgeous. But her smile, her smile just drives me crazy because it never goes away! I like her smile most especially when you know she’s infuriated about something. Galing lang sa plastikan. Hehe. Her smile’s demonic. She is, I think the main object of Amanda’s/Emily’s revenge. She was and still is in love with Amanda’s father but framed him anyway because of well---power and wealth what else?
