Here To Stay

New, 1 comment

After our initial snarking, it looks like ABC's Revenge is here to stay for a while. The modern day Count of Monte Cristo set in The Hamptons (although not filmed here) is one of the only new dramas that hasn't been canceled and has actually been putting up some pretty stellar numbers. One reason for the success, according to Madeleine Stowe?who plays show's matriarchal villain?might be what it represents: "We are dealing at a particular time right now in American history where I think the average American is going to want to see the takedown of the rich." One thing's for certain?people aren't tuning in for its accurate portrayal of the Hamptons. Watching it makes us question whether the show's creator has actually ever stepped foot on the East End.
