REVENGE “Suspicion” Review

REVENGE "Suspicion" Season 1 Episode 9 – Up until now Revenge has played to its cheesy side while not fully embracing it. That is no longer the case. This episode was only missing a goatee when it comes to diabolical scheming joy. It took some mind twisting turns-not that they are confusing, just that, if you’re trying to tell someone the plot to get them interested in the show, it’s really really hard. You get to Nolan’scharacter and you haven’t even hit on faux Amanda and whatever the hell Declan and Charlotte are doing and yet you’re already getting a headache.

I really enjoyed this episode. I laughed out loud at least three times. It’s the perfect hangover show, when you’re wrecked from a night out and you’re too dumb to think so you want to avoid Mad Men or Breaking Bad or Community at all costs and yet you’re not in the mood to laugh so reruns of old sitcoms or shows like 2 Broke Girls and Modern Family do nothing but offer up a headache of misery. In comes Revenge, with its delightfully convoluted plot, glowering yet very attractive cast of characters and, best of all, it’s gloriously cringe worthy dialogue. It’s not cringeworthy in a bad way – the writers are obviously capable of decent dialogue, but the show’s characters interact on, for the most part, a snippy level which, as of yet, has been pretty fun to watch.
