Frankly I watch far too much television that is healthy for a normal human being and long ago I decided that I would not start watching any new more television series in order to concentrate on my work. However, there was just something about revenge that gave me a burning desire to watch it and I couldn't ignore it. So far, I've only seen one episode, but I'm already hooked. Although the characters are all in their mid-twenties and above I still find this show appealing and I think many other teenagers will too.
As the title suggests, this television show is all about revenge and it's actually an adaption of 'The Count of Monte Cristo' by Alexandre Dumas. When Amanda Clarke was a little girl her father was taken away from her and arrested for a murder he did not commit. Her perfect life was ruined as she was put in an institution until she turned 18 and was emancipated. Upon her release, she found out that her father had died and left her a box. A box full of secrets. After reading her father's journals she discovered that he had been unjustly blamed and so she sought revenge on those who framed him. Taking on the new identity of 'Emily Thorn', she rents out her old home in the Hamptons where the people she seeks revenge upon spend their summers. It is not clear how exactly she plans on executing this revenge but it's clear that she means business. Don't be fooled by her pretty face and blonde hair. The opening episode shows Emily at her engagement party, but her fiancé is soon found lying dead on the beach. It is suggested that she planned this in order to get revenge on her fiancé's mother. The story then backtracks to when Emily first moves to the Hamptons and her meetings with all the other characters.
