Welcome to the Hamptons, a glittering world of incredible wealth and privilege, where smiles hide secrets – and nothing is colder than revenge. It's easy to see why the Hamptons are so exclusive. But no matter how guarded they are, they can't keep the truth out forever.
Meet Emily Thorne (Emily Van Camp), a sexy beauty hell-bent on a mission of revenge. When she moves in, everyone wonders about the new girl, but she knows everything about them, including who they are and what they did to her family. Years ago, they took everything from her. Now, one by one, she's going to make them pay. When it comes to revenge, money is no object, because only an eye for an eye will ever make things right. Emily's main target is Victoria (Madeleine Stowe), a powerful and cunning woman who holds the key to Emily's past ... and perhaps her future. As we flash back and forth between the past and the present, Emily tries to ignore ties to her old life. Whatever the danger, Emily refuses to be distracted from her mission. When everything you love has been taken, revenge is all you have left.
Executive produced by Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen (Twilight), written by Mike Kelley (Swingtown) and directed by Philip Noyce (Salt), this sweeping multi-generation soap is a modern day retelling of The Count of Monte Cristo from a female perspective. Get a glimpse into the lives of the filthy rich and the people who serve them in this scorching new thriller that asks: if someone stole everything from you, how far would you go to get revenge?
„Ovo nije priča o opraštanju. Kad sam bila malena, moje razumijevanje osvete bilo je previše iskrivljeno. Kad vam se oduzme sve što vrijedi, netko mora platiti. Na njezinu žalost, sada sam odrasla...“ Emily Thorne (Emily Van Camp) nova je u Hamptonsu. Upoznala je neke od svojih novih susjeda, stekla nekoliko novih prijatelja i, čini se, dobro uklopila u grad. Međutim, pomalo je čudno kako se mlada djevojka odlično snalazi u imućnom susjedstvu. Razlog je taj što Emily i nije baš nova u gradu. Zapravo, ovo je bila njezina četvrt sve dok se nije dogodilo nešto loše, nešto što je uništilo njezinu obitelj i njihov ugled. Emily je sada ponovno tu, a vratila se kako bi napokon ispravila nepravdu, najbolje kako zna – osvetom. Okosnicu priče čine laž, prevara i osveta, ali... Sada je prekasno za isprike. (TVO)
Watch It - awesome show, can't wait for more
Skip It - it's either horrible or just totally not their thing
DVR It - there's potential, will give it a second chance

Is it me, or is this soap 'Harper's Island' but with decent production values, a Hamptons setting and a better cast, led by the dependably good Emily VanCamp? (OK, so maybe it's just me, because I'm betting nobody else remembers 'Harper's Island.')
Furlong: DVR It
Or better yet: DVR It and Save It for Next Summer, because that's when this soapy story should be airing. In the fall, I'm afraid it doesn't stand a chance.

I watched this twice and I still don't know exactly why Emily Van Camp wants revenge on these mean rich people. How can this storyline play out over the long term? That said, I'll give it another shot before I give up altogether.

The pilot was pretty soapy, but intriguing enough to give it another try.
Pogledah, i gledat ću dalje..je trash i sve to, ali..ne mogu si pomoći..
I jedan lik me podsjeća na Chucka u prvoj sezoni GG
Uglavnom, izašao je PreAir pilot...Ako volite PLL, GG, Desperate Housewives i takve stavri, moglo bi vam se svidjeti..
