    One of the best modern day soaps that burnt itself out too fast. Nolan and Emily's relationship is great.

    It had a great start, but the premise (sort of Sidney Sheldon story) was too limited for a multiple seasons tv series.
    Many twists were twisted further, and then again and again - and this weakened every previous plot twist.

    The went about subsequent seasons all wrong. They should have made it more an anthology but kept it soapy. Each season built on someone's revenge. It just got convoluted beyond belief in season 2.

    It went from being addictive as cocaine to horrifying like cabbage in such a short time-span...

    Pretty much and this what the idea that was floated originally - each season would've changed a setting and revenge plot (I recall that the plot was going to move into New York full time). Of course, when you have a great cast and characters that people care about it's hard to just abandon that.

    It became fizzy lettuce. And I say that as someone who liked the entire series - but it could've been done so much better and less convulted.

    I'd have kept the main cast, and obviously made the Graysons and Emily the meat of the show. I mean I would want to use every inch of that Manor set for all it's worth. They could have still made it about other peoples Revenge and had the Graysons there. It's a while since I watched it but I am sure they could have planned it out so each season focused on a characters revenge. Jack, Nolan, Ashely all could have had issues from their past that they needed to sort out.

    Shorter seasons would have benefited the show I think. It wouldn't have meandered as much and went off track. Or they should have split the seasons into parts A and B. Having a set of writers working on an arc for A with a beginning, middle and end, and the same for part B. Two unconnected stories that used the same characters. It just was too twisty turny and confusing.

    There are rumours going around that this is being revived (and even has a two season pick-up - somewhere).

    Shorter seasons would have definitely benefited them as Alexis said. They had no idea how to write this show and what direction to take. I gave up on it during the second season and never looked back.

    I've seen this show 6 times already and I think I'll watch it again this year. It's become my summer staple. I always start around Memorial Day (which is the starting point of each season) and by September and I get to the twilight of the show, it's final dark season, a fitting end to a summer. I'm still in love with the sexy Daniel and adore the fantasy world in the Hamptons the show depicts in its signature manner.

    There's something about him that reminds me of young Donald Trump.

    :eck: Good lord, I hope President Cheeto wasn't one of the men in their circle who grabbed Victoria Grayson by the kitty back in the day.
