It just that since I subscribed to a pay TV, and now resigning from my latest radio job, and pretty much working from home, I watch TV for about 4-6 hours a day. I cut it down from 6-8 hours a day, that's when I decided that Im going to Dubai next year with my business :D
But there's a huge different from Indonesian local TV and cables, indeed! I don't dig celeb's gossips. If I need to know about the news updates, I simply look on the net now. Sinetron? Not an option. Before we decided to finally use a pay TV, me and husband spent so much for DVDs. We'll.. Because that's the most reasonable choice.
So anyway, one of the series I currently watch now is "Revenge" on Star World. It's pretty much drama, but I love to see the way the stars's acting. Not too much. Not so sinetron-y :p
The story takes place in Hampton. Where the richest are. You remember Royal Pains? Yes. With all the big castles and all. Geez, I would love to visit it one day :D
This is not a story about forgiveness. Obviously. Or else the tittle's not gonna be revenge. About a girl named Emily Thorne, whose real name actually Amanda Clarke. A daughter of David Clarke, a convicted man for the crime he didn't do. He's just a fall guy of a big conspiracy by Grayson Global, a huge company he works for. Framed by Victoria Grayson, his boss wife, who happened to be the one he loved.
Emily never knew that his father is innocence, until his death. With a box contains pieces of the betrayal, she dedicates her new life to eliminate everyone that ruins her dad and her childhood.
You should watch it! I hugely recommend this :D But the best part is the soundtrack! Writing this, I'm currently downloading the full tracks from season 1 episode 1-13, about 700MB! Praise the internet provider! :lol:
Grew the love I had before for Angus and Julia Stone with the track "For You", and I got to know Agnes Obel and stunned by her single Riverside!

"When I was a little girl my understanding of revenge was as simple as the Sunday school proverbs it hid behind. Neat little morality slogans like, do un to others and two wrongs don't make a right. But two wrongs can never make a right because; two wrongs can never equal each other. For the truly wronged real satisfaction can only be found in one of two places, absolute forgiveness or mortal vindication. This is not a story about forgiveness." - Emily Thorne
