And so I've watched the Revenge TV series this whole week till they end and now I left in emptiness lol.
Like I said earlier, my hobbies are seasonal. I love drawing so much but after the last illustration, I haven't touch my drawing tools again ever since. This week theme is "movie mania". By movie I don't say the "movie" that has to be watched in the cinema, but they mostly watched in my laptop. Especially the TV movies from the international channel. They make me addicted. Okay you could just say that those are like "sinetron barat" but I tell you that they are very different from ours (wonder why!). The best thing I like about them is they know how exactly to keep us watching without making us boring. Also, they absolutely know how to end the series. I mean, how many of our "sinetron" began with a nice idea and nice plot but then as it keeps going, it started to be confusing until they finally cut it hanging without planning things right? Uhm..
|My attempt to draw Victoria Grayson is failed. First, she's too young and chubby. Second, she's less vicious lol.|
I actually watched Cinta Fitri before it ended up to be poorly crafted, and I was left confused, bored and disappointed :(
So now about Revenge. They came in 4 seasons, each has 23 episodes. I bought the first season DVDs since 2013 but only decided to watch it in 2015. And then I was so in love. At first it looked like an ordinary soap opera. But as it progressing, it became more and more interesting. And also, do you know that not many movies have a great heroine in it? This movie does. Emily Thorne is badass.
The story is about that very Emily Thorne, whose real name is Amanda Clarke, that has a big well-planned revenge plan towards The Grayson Family who has falsely accused her father, David Clarke, as a criminal responsible for the airplane crash while Emily still 9. Turns out that the airplane crash is a part of a big conspiracy. The revenge plan is so tidy, clever, and interesting (and also wicked) but somehow we'll always support it because The Graysons are evil-er. One by one, Emily took down everyone who took part in that conspiracy and wronged her family in the past. By took down, she did something wicked to make sure the villain got a miserable life.
