Like this show if you wish, but as a person that doesnt care for kids to begin with and doesnt come from a tight-knit family, this show just didnt appeal to me.
Well, there would be no plot if Amanda turned out to be just the average Jill, right? See, in order to get things done, you need resources. The green kind. The kind that opens doors and lubricates resistance. Not even Edmund Dantes could have become the Count of Monte Cristo without access to funds. The kind that could finance one's way into the upper-classes of society. Fortunately for our young heroine, her ally just happens to be the great Nolan Ross, software genius, and the CEO of Nolcorp technologies. With his billions at her disposal and with the specialized training she receives from a mysterious man named Satoshi Takeda, Amanda Clarke is now well on her way to exact her revenge on the very powerful Grayson family. But before she can get to the Graysons, she must first get through the many layers of security men and hired help that the powerful family has surrounding them. Having the kind of money that she has at her disposal, as well as the genius of Nolan Ross, Amanda Clarke takes on a new identity: Emily Thorne. A young heiress with too much time on her hands who decides to move to the Hamptons. Disguised as the independently wealthy Emily Thorne, Amanda quickly makes allies as well as enemies as she carries out her plans to exact revenge on the Greysons.
As the saying goes from one of my other favored TV shows, "keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer", Emily Thorne buys the house next door to the Graysons. From this place of operation, Emily keeps tabs on the Graysons, working her way into their social circles and finally, to their inner circle.
The show is primarily made up of a terrific cast. Madeline Stowe, Emily Vancamp, Gabriel Mann, and Henry Czerny. Nick Wechsler is also along, playing an outsider caught in the crossfire. Well-known and highly-respected veteran actors such as Cary Hiroyuki-Tagawa, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Amber Valetta, and William Devane also lend their acting talents to play characters that occasionally add complexity and depth to the plot.
I have always been a fan of Emily Vancamp since her performance as Esther in the "Ben-Hur" remake. This will probably be her most memorable role, however, as the driven Amanda Clarke. Gabriel Mann is the bi-sexual software genius, and billionaire CEO Nolan Ross. Gabriel is one of the most versatile actors today, having portrayed Father Francis in "Exorcists: Dominion", as well as other characters very much different from Nolan Ross. I am a fan of Mann, for sure. Cary Hiroyuki-Tagawa is the very mysterious and very dangerous Satoshi Takeda, martial arts teacher and expert swordsman. You may remember Mr. Hiroyuki-Tagawa as Eddie in "Rising Sun" and Shang Tsung in "Mortal Kombat". Josh Bowman is the son of the Grayson clan, heir to the family's controlling interest in Grayson Global corporation. Madeline Stowe is Victoria Grayson, Amanda's primary nemesis and ultimate target. The very beautiful Amber Valetta is Lydia Davis, a woman who was complicit in framing Amanda's father, David Clarke. Henry Czerny is Conrad Greyson, the CEO of a multi-billion dollar global corporation.
