On REVENGE, the complex love-money-retribution drama now in its second season on ABC on Sunday nights at 10, Gabriel Mann plays Nolan Ross. Nolan is a complicated young man who – when they’re speaking to each other – tries to help heroine Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) avenge the death of her father and other wrongs she perceives to have been committed by the wealthy Grayson clan. Nolan has had a tough year, what with losing his corporation and having his girlfriend kidnapped and murdered, but it sounds like the worse things get for the character, the better actor Mann likes […]Read On »

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Mark B. Perry & Joe Fazzio Director: Stephen Schwartz Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 9 p.m. Original Telecast: February 17, 2013 At last, at last, we get to find out who died when the Amanda went down, as we saw in the season premiere of REVENGE. And, in fact, “Sacrifice” starts as it did at the beginning of the season, with the divers and the hand with the wedding band. Now, I have been writing all season that I thought it would be Aidan (Barry Sloane). It made sense, since Aidan clearly was […]Read On »

TV Review: REVENGE – Season 2 – “Union”

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Michael Foley & Tde Sullivan Director: Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 9 p.m. Original Telecast: February 10, 2013 So “Union” is supposedly about all the forces, good and evil, getting together on REVENGE. But do we really care about that? It’s all about that sunken boat from this season’s premiere and whose body was in it. The way this episode was teased, I really thought this one was going to be the one where we find out. However, knowing this show, it’s entirely possibly they’ll find a way to drag that storyline […]Read On »

TV Review: REVENGE – Season 2 – “Collusion”

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Sunil Nayar & Sallie Patrick Director: Matt Shakman Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 9 p.m. Original Telecast: January 20, 2013 You know, it suddenly occurs to me that the reason REVENGE‘s episodes happen at such break-neck speed (six story-lines serviced before the opening credits of “Collusion” – and one scene actually featured two stories), is that the writers are trying to cover up that the over-all story arc has a few gaping holes in it. Like we’re not supposed to notice that Aidan (Barry Sloane) is smart enough to help Emily run […]Read On »

TV Review: REVENGE – Season 2 – “Lineage”

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Nikki Toscano Director: Christopher Misiano Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 9 p.m. Original Telecast: November 25, 2012 Is it my imagination or are things about blow up on REVENGE, and I mean a serious E-Ticket ride to hell in a handbasket blow up? We have that body in Jack’s (Nick Wechsler) boat from the season premiere and a load of back stories in “Linear” that are as much about what’s about to happen as they are about explaining the past. I’m going to take this storyline by storyline, since there’s a lot going […]Read On »

TV Review: REVENGE – Season 2 – “Illusion”

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Michael Foley Director: Bobby Roth Network: ABC, Sunday nights, 9 p.m. Original Telecast: November 4, 2012 I must confess, there are parts of REVENGE that I am just not getting, probably because there’s just too much story to keep track of. I’m serious. It’s bad when scenes are moving so quickly that I can’t even get a note written (in short-hand) before the next scene starts going. And that’s pausing my DVR and going back a time or two. Seems like the only “Illusion” going on here is that there’s a coherent […]Read On »

TV Review: REVENGE – Season 2 – “Forgiveness”

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Sunil Nayar Director: Matt Earl Beesley Network: ABC, Wednesday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 28, 2013 If there is a scene in “Forgiveness” that lasts longer than two minutes, I would be surprised. REVENGE has always had a problem with too much going on at a time, but it’s going more than a little bit nuts here. Add that to a sound problem that made the dialogue hard to hear in a few crucial instances, and it was rough going. Because the real Emily Thorne is actually pretending to be […]Read On »

TV Review: REVENGE – Season 2 – “Intuition”

Stars: Emily VanCamp, Madeleine Stowe, Henry Czerny, Josh Bowman, Nick Wechsler, Gabriel Mann, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie Director: Randy Zisk Network: ABC, Wednesday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 21, 2012 It’s a little annoying that even though this is a relatively focused episode of REVENGE, I have to dock “Intuition” a grade because of a personal pet peeve – it’s told in flashback. We start with a maid cleaning up a pool of blood from the Grayson entry way, with Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) watching, then crumpling up a piece of paper and tossing it into the fire. Then “24 hours earlier….” Oh, […]Read On »

Miller Tobin Network: ABC, Wednesday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 14, 2012 REVENGE has always had a problem with its story running in too many directions at once, and in “Confidence,” it’s not getting any better. We’ve got Declan (Connor Paolo) breaking into houses with Trey Chandler (Michael Nardelli), Daniel (Josh Bowman) trying to figure out which parent he wants to trust, Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) and Conrad (Henry Czerny) trying to up each other with threats, Amanda (Margarita Levieva) having a baby […]Read On »

Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Sallie Patrick Director: David Grossman Network: ABC, Wednesday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 7, 2012 With Emily (Emily VanCamp) droning on about “Resurrection,” this episode of REVENGE opens with a flashback of young Emily (well, actually Amanda Clarke) riding in a station wagon with her mother Kara (Jennifer Jason Leigh). Young Amanda tells her mother that her daddy said she was sick, but there’s not much of a response and besides, it’s actually a dream and when Nolan (Gabriel Mann) tries to wake Emily up, she chokes him. Nolan’s stressed that […]Read On »
