Awesome series and nifty casing
Verified purchase
First of all, if you're unsure whether to give this series a try, definitely do it!
There's a perfect balance of romance, drama, and action! You will absolutely love this show!
This order includes the complete first season of Revenge. There are 5 dvd's included, all in great condition.
They come in this really nifty case. It's easy and convenient to flip through the disks without worrying about them rubbing and scratching up against each other.
Overall I'm very pleased with this. This is something that I will watch over and over again. I was really excited to add it to my dvd collection!

Cheesy, Soap Opera Goodness
Verified purchase
If you like the Rich People Behaving Badly genre, you'll enjoy this made-for-TV series. Mediocre acting and the characters are pretty one-dimensional, but the actors are all good-looking, the houses and clothing are glamorous, and the story and scheming aren't too difficult to follow.

You'll also like this series if you like the Genius Psychopath/Genius Sociopath genre. If you're willing to believe that if you're evil and smart enough, every plan you hatch will succeed flawlessly... nothing will go wrong. Because in Revenge, the central character has an impossible, freakish ability to be all-knowing, all-seeing, and perfect when it comes to unleashing her revenge schemes. In a Rich, White-Wine-in-the-Hamptons world with a hundred moving parts, absolutely nothing goes wrong for our wronged, pretty young billionairess out for revenge.

So if you like bad TV where despicable rich people get what's coming to them, you'll like Revenge. Just don't believe that what you're watching can happen in real life.

Best network nighttime soap in a loooong time...
Verified purchase
I haven't watched a major network show in ages - in fact, I got rid of TV entirely over two years ago, and now only watch Netflix and on-demand video.

I stumbled on "Revenge," bought the pilot, and got hooked - came back and bought the rest.

NOTE: For the two village idiots who gave this one star because it's not on DVD...hello -- it's still in its first season, and still airing. Of course it's not on DVD yet.

There's no great plot description in the existing reviews, so here's my attempt to be succinct yet clear without any spoilers.

The main character, Amanda Clarke (played by Emily VanCamp) returns to her childhood home in the Hamptons -- under an assumed identity, Emily Thorne -- to systematically exact revenge on every individual who was involved in framing her father for a capital crime he didn't commit. At the center of the deceit is the Grayson family, with Madeleine Stowe as the sexy yet formidable matriarch Victoria. At the "heart" of it, there are two love interests in Emily's life: Jack Porter, the boy who never forgot her (played by Nick Wechsler) and Victoria's son Daniel (played by Joshua Bowman) who is the apple of his mother's eye. And there's the scheming sidekick, Nolan Ross (played by Gabriel Mann) who has deep ties to her father. Treachery runs as deep as the secrets, love and sex are endlessly complicated, interesting new characters and plotlines are frequently introduced, and the surprises abound --- so odds are you'll get sucked into the maelstrom and become a happy addict.

I think the show might be a bit confusing -- or at least would be far less enjoyable -- if you tune in mid-season. There really are a lot of plot twists and turns and reveals, so I'd recommend watching the show from the beginning for maximum enjoyment.

(And yes, the premise of the show is very loosely based on Dumas' Count of Monte Cristo -- with a gender twist/female lead.) Enjoy!

REVENGE COULD GIVE DALLAS OR DYNASTY COMPETITION
Verified purchase
Cmon, who in their lives have not secretly dreamed of getting even with all those who have wronged them. I know I have but I also know that revenge brings satisfaction but only momentarily. I will say that I wanted to watch the show because of the name REVENGE. I hadn't really seen any of the advertisement but decided to give it a try and like two of my other favorite shows, Grimm and Once Upon A Time, I was hooked. The whole show revovles around a girl named Amanda Clarke AKA Emily Thorne who has the means ($$$, help from outside sources and the determination) to get revenge on all of those who framed her father for being a traitor by funding money to a group of terrorist that blew up an airplane full of innocent people.

This show works for me because Emily is so darn smart, cunning, focused and she lets nothing stand in her way although I wouldn't call her completely cold and calculating. She does have a heart even if she has a hard time showing it. Although the show is deemed a drama, there is many comedic moments provided by Nolan (Emily's partner in crime and billionaire). Of course what show like Revenge could prosper without villains, in this case Victoria and Conrad Grayson to start of with. I must admit that I have never seen a couple who double cross each other as much as they change their underwear. LOL. You will find it easy to hate Victoria as she is to me the biggest villain of them all (watch the show and you'll know what I mean). After the first few episodes, I wanted to slap the smirk off her face. Now you know it is a great show when a character can evoke that much emotion.

Of course what show would work without a love triangle. There is Daniel Grayson (privileged son of the Graysons-spoiled brat at times) and Jack Porter (Amanda's best friend before tragedy struck) now owner of the local bar. They are both so cute but of course there is no contest. Just like in the Twilight series (Team Edward vs Team Jacob), I'm on Team Jacob and so it is with Revenge. If there was a Team Daniel vs Team Jack, I would pick Jack all the way. A good heart goes a whole lot further than a fat wallet.

Of course there are many side plots but what is great about this show is how everytime you think you know how "low" the Graysons will sink (and they have sank lower than the Titanic) in order to save their good name, they will go and do something equally obnoxious and always spin things back to their advantage.

Don't bet on the Graysons though, Emily is a very resourceful girl and has a knack of getting herself out of trouble with the help of a few but namely Nolan (love him). I watch this show because it is by far the most engrossing show on TV and I want to see how far the Grayson conspiracy goes and what Emily will do to exact revenge for her loved ones. I must admit I don't advocate revenge but In Emily's situation, I think I might have done the same.

Season Two just started and oh boy,,,,,I won't spoil the surprise only to say that there are plenty of surprises ahead (no pun intended).

Please feel free to comment on my review and or the show.

Predictions for Season 2 ***SPOILERS****
Verified purchase
This show has walked a fine line between melodrama and real emotions since the beginning.

Emily Van Camp has shown us a very Bruce Wayne / Bat-Man portrayal of the Socialite with a damaged past as well as the Operative who likes to contingency plan all her moves for the Deep Strike while maintaing the adaptability to accept reversals and use them to further her own ends. I didn't expect that but she has shown me she can act both sides of that situation.

Victoria as a charactor is somewhat murkier in that she says she loves a man and actively connives against him. I find her behavior weaker than Emily/Amanda but c'est la guerre.

***SPOILERS****

I believe it is possible that no one died on that plane. We shall see but it sounds like the kind of mis-direct a Revenge story is famous for doing.

Daniel & Ashley are going to hook up and shatter apart at least once.

I hope Declan stands strong against the emotional blackmail from Charlotte but he may break down as he is very young and a decent sort himself.

Jack & Amanda/Emily are going to blowup at or around the time of birth if she doesn't miscarry but she is so unstable that there is just no way she will be carrying Jack's kid, IMO.

Amerikon Initiative is going to be watching Nolan and we know how that is going to turn out...

***End of SPOILERS***

All In all, I will watch season 2 and hope tha it continues to walk the line and not sucumb to soap opera melodrama.

Late to the game but glad I am playing!
Verified purchase
My 13 year old daughter and I got into this show late last season...had originally blown it off as nothing that would interest either of us....newsflash....we were wrong. Other than the gorgeous Madeline Stowe, I saw nothing worthwhile in the previews to make me think my time would be well spent watching what I guessed was a crappy attempt at night time soap opera material. This show is wildly creative and smart! The bad guys are top of the line, (the entire Grayson family) the accessory's to the crimes are entertaining and funny (Nolan!!)and our female heroine, yes heroine, is bad ass and afraid of nothing!!! My daughter and I bonded every week as we tried to guess what would happen next. So glad to get this dvd set before the show returns this fall so we can watch it all and figure out what we dont understand.
Surprised by how well written this show is, surprised at the acting, which is better than I expected and thrilled to have a new lead female character to root for every week now that I have broken my daughter out of the Bella trance. :)

Great TV Series
Verified purchase
Revenge has something for everyone with its cast of characters and multiple story lines. It's full of action, drama, romance, and mystery. No drawn out drama and waiting before the "action" really happens (like a soap opera) - every episode is I full of twists and turns! I don't usually get caught up in TV series, but a friend recommended this one. Since two full seasons had already gone by, I felt it was a little late to jump on board with the current TV showings. So, I rented Season 1 and started from the beginning. I got hooked after the first show and had watched all of Season 1 and just started Season 2. Once I'm caught up, I will start watching the current current episodes. I won't miss anything, because Amazon lets you rent every single show, including last week's - you don't have to wait until the season is over to rent episodes.
