This is one of the most riveting guilty pleasures I have seen in ages. It makes Dynasty look like a cartoon, and I came of age so to speak in the age of Dynasty and Dallas (still vividly remember our "who shot JR party"). But it is so much more than those two were. This is really a fascinating story with complicated twists and turns than keep you on the edge of your seat. Make some snacks or some popcorn, pour yourself some wine, and enjoy this twisty-turny-pleasure. This is A+ for those of you who liked Scandal (seasons 1-3, I stopped watching it after that as I felt the arc had been completed), and The Good Wife. Really really good gp. Times infinity, haha.

It's like a Lifetime TV movie of a Mary Higgins Clark novel which is not a compliment. The CGI, predictably uncreative dialogue, and over-acting, make it pointless to watch unless you're really bored. The overall plot is campy and funny at times when one might assume it means to be serious. If you're old enough to have seen the original Dallas, Falcon Crest, or Dynasty, the themes are all too familiar but ABC doesn't have the budget. Speaking of the budget, it was really tiring to see the same costume jewelry used in more than half the season and all of the women's outfits lacking prints. Basic blah.

watched The first 5 episodes in a row. Cliffhangers, hooks good plot. The idea that a Mitt Romney type hedgefunder would be laundering money for terrorists is not that far fetched. In the global economy, bankers, mobsters, and mega corporations all use the same money to play monopoly (although according to Todd Akin, women's bodies can detect dirty money). The "Revenge" plot would be good for a 2-21/2 hr. movie because that's about how long a good film would take to wrap this up. I thought that to draw this plot out for season(s) they would have to start grafting on subplots. Et voila! Here comes the sexy bikini girl and the asian martial arts guy. you can almost hear the air going out of the balloon with each new contrived plot contortion. There's a reason most series dramas --lawyers, detectives, doctors, etc.-- have a new plot each episode. otherwise it's called a soap opera.

This show starts off really good and then goes downhill from there. It just gets stupid...
