Very true. Gas thing is its more compressed then series 1.

32 weeks between the start and finish of the series vs 35 weeks span in season 1.

It drives me mad to watch a US series tbh having all the stop-starts and tbh i was having trouble staying with Season 2 up to now.

Ive a feeling Spoiler: David Clarke is probably part of this initiative when all will be revealed whenever this show will end AND he'll be still alive

showrunner/creator/producer stepping down......i think alot of people have said this about Revenge, 22 episode seasons are way too much and season 2 has suffered alot:

I hear Kelley, who created the cult CBS drama Swing Town before taking a crack at a female-driven contemporary take on The Count Of Monte Cristo with Revenge, had been lobbying for shorter seasons for the heavily serialized drama. From the get-go, he had argued with ABC and ABC Studios that Revenge was much better suited for cable-style orders instead of the standard broadcast 22-episode seasons. After a fast start, Revenge was moved into the high-profile Sunday 9 PM slot last fall though it has been uneven creatively. I hear the pressure to churn out 22 episodes a season while maintaining the quality has taken a toll, sometime causing tension on the set and ultimately leading to Kelley’s decision to move on. He just informed ABCS and the Revenge cast of his decision. “Mike Kelley created a distinctive series for our studio and network with tremendous passion and dedication,” said ABC Studios EVP Barry Jossen. “We wish him all the best as he moves on to his next television achievement.”

Somebody that bitter and seething wouldnt just stay living there indefinitely having tea with these people.

I think they overestimated how much folk care about these caracters.

Last season, you were getting bang for your buck each episode. It was that brainless payoff that i tuned in for.
This season is more like a day time soap where nothing really happens.
I couldnt care less about obvious time filler; Jack and his vendetta, Nolan and his angst re Padma, Eli and his revenge, the falcon, the initiative, aidan and his dead sister (got over that sharpish)

The show creator bailing is a really big deal. I understand completely where he's coming from and wish him well. American networks are brutal for putting longevity and profits before the writer's wishes.

Th eoriginal takedown-of-the-week was brilliant tv!....they way Emily took down those guys in those first few episodes was brilliant. But then it got a back order.....they changed the killing of Daniel, first mistake....then stretched things out.

I think many us said at the start it should have ben a one season and done deal.

Agree with everyone re s2, it seemed like it took more of an effort to watch, even now I don't think it would bother me if I didn't see the last few episodes of the season

Yes it is becoming more far fetched this season like Prison Break as another poster pointed it out but yet I'm still watching
