Revenge is a guilty pleasure

comments 9

A part of me feels slightly guilty to admit this. Brace yourself!


Out of the batch of new Fall TV shows one of new ones I find myself really enjoying, as a sort of guilty pleasure, has been Revenge. I had no real intentions to start watching it. But as the new season rolled toward me, I figured I’d give everything a shot and then just cut the fat when I began to lose interest.

I’m four episodes into Revenge and I’ve not lost any interest whatsoever so far. It’s soapy and ridiculous. But not as soapy and ridiculous as Ringer. (Which I just haven’t gelled with at all despite all my best efforts.) There’s just something compelling about Revenge. The characters all have their own devious motives. Plenty of questions are being thrown out there with few answers. I just really like watching it.

Though after writing that little bit about how much I do enjoy it, I’m wondering if I should call it a guilty pleasure. It’s a solid new TV show with a lot going for it. The characters using Android driven mobile phones is also another reason for me to like it. Go Android!

Who doesn’t want to see a bunch of fictional Hampton socialites all slowly destroy themselves due to the actions of one driven young woman?


  1. Glad I’m not the only one not impressed with Ringer. I watched the Pilot with one eye on the clock, waiting for it to finish. Can’t bring myself to watch another episode.

    And I can’t believe you snuck in an Android reference when taking about tv shows! That’s some serious dedication 😛

    Might give this show a look.

    • Android is my crack.

      Ringer just got worse in my opinion. I don’t know how I stuck through the episodes I did. Though I feel as if I wasted my precious time!

      Revenge is good. It’s ridiculous. But good.

  2. Yay for the Revenge love. I am totally addicted. I’ve given up on Ringer. Revenge is soapy in a fun way. Ringer is just soapy in a bad daytime american tv way.

    • YES! That’s exactly what Ringer was like! Did they tell all of the actors to act like they’re in a soap? It sure felt like it!

  3. Didn’t SMG go back to do a Soap episode recently? Perhaps she picked up a bad soap acting disease and infected all the cast of Ringer with it.

    • She did go back to return as her character on All My Children, I think it was… me thinks she has infected them all!

  4. I’ve bee curious about this one but, as you know, I have too many series addictions going on right now… I think I’ll give it a try during Christmas time, when all the other series get a break.

    That being said… I love guilty pleasures!

    • I think it’d be a good watch over Christmas. Maybe marathon it. Very easy to watch and very enjoyable!
