I have watched every chapter/episode of Revenge --- just how far can they milk this story and plotting????? People come, people die, people pop back in -- new people are written into the script. This is big time "milking." In 1951, when I was just 10 years old, TV started "Search For Tomorrow" as a soap opera during the day time. It ran 35 years. I only watched the first two years in the summer time . . . But the creators and staff writers of Revenge are trying to stretch this story out for 35 years . . . When do the terrorists show up? But I will keep watching . . .
Love the show, but the Episode 9 (part 1 of 2 parts) -- I liked the premise of the protest against the large multi corporations -- but not the ending that "Red" was protecting the "capitalists" way . . . That really means to have the Koch brothers of the world, win -- and the hard working middle class loose. "Red" was protecting his private planes and unlimited resources that HE has connections for . . . the school teacher, bank teller, the salesperson, etc. are just a pawn in that game. Sorry, but do not agree with the pattern here.
Watched the first one --- in the end, I felt -- this is nothing more than "Desperate Housewives" go to work. Same kind of thing -- women, with interesting jobs, end up in desperate situations . . . to carry over from one week to another. Also, as I try and remember -- (almost) all of the scenes have people from 25 - 35 years old. Even the walk on or through or sitting to the side --- that is not reality. Producers wake up.
