Anybody watch Revenge last night? The endless 'coming soon' ads have been driving me insane, but to be honest, they also kind of worked, because I tuned in to have a look last night.

Perhaps not the most wholesome of premises, but at the same time, it kind of tunes into that built-in desire for justice I think we all have, the wanting to see the baddie get their comeuppance.

I thought it was pretty good as a show, and I'm keen enough to keep watching. Stylistically I thought it was a bit over the top and unnecessarily dumbed-down. For example, if someone was cross, you got a 5 second closeup of their 'cross expression'. Leave that junk for the daytime soaps, please.

Also, you could always tell when you were about to go into a memory flashback, it was all very obvious. But, I guess it's prime time tele, and for me the premise was interesting enough to put up with those annoying things.

Well I meant to tune in (like you, I was sucked in by the constant plugging it received during the tennis coverage...) and then I completely forgot and watched the Four Corners special on Kevin Rudd's knifing instead.
Come to think of it, maybe the two shows probably weren't all that different!?
