I previously posted about Sarah Michelle Gellar's new show on The CW, Ringer. (The second episode was solid, by the way) There are a few other shows that I enjoyed and a few I will check out.
Revenge is a new ABC drama about, you guessed it, revenge. I enjoyed the pilot, and it's over the top premise of how a daughter is getting revenge on the people who framed and destroyed her father when she was younger in the backdrop of the Hamptons. The show begins right off the bat with a murder, but then moves to five months earlier. The whole pilot does a fine job setting up the rest of the season, leaving you win many questions on how Emily VanCamp's character will evolve and if she'll succeed.

The plot is interesting and throws in enough twists and turns that the viewer will always be on the edge of their seat, wanting to pay attention and see what happens next. It's Sarah Michelle Gellar's return to TV after doing Buffy The Vampire Slayer from 1997-2003. She does her dual role perfectly and believably, playing twin sisters who haven't spoken to each other in six years. Both characters, Bridget & Siobhan, have interesting backgrounds filled with drama & crime. I don't want to give any plot away, but if you're into drama and suspense mixed with some mystery then you'll enjoy this. Ioan Gruffudd & Nestor Carbonell also star.
This isn't like any other show on The CW, so if you think of that network being geared towards a certain audience, you can change your perceptions and give Ringer a chance. It airs on Tuesdays at 9PM.

The set is on sale at iTunes for only $9.99 for a limited time. For anyone who has yet to own any Beatles music, what are you waiting for? The album contains all 27 US & UK Number One songs by the group. You really can't beat 27 amazing songs for just $10. No wonder the set has fittingly shot to Number 1 on iTunes in most countries around the world. For those yet to really listen to The Beatles, it's the perfect time to meet John, Paul, George and Ringo.
Like the other digital Beatles albums, this is also in the iTunes LP format with a digital booklet. The CD version which is packaged like the 2009 Remastered CD's is available for pre-order as well. When the album was first released in November 2000, it was Beatlemania all over again. It became the fastest selling album in history, and shot to Number 1 around the world. In the US, it spent Eight weeks on top of the Billboard 200 at #1 from 2000 into 2001. The Beatles are always getting new fans with their timeless music, so it's no surprise. Even though the Beatles are the biggest music act of all time, it still has to be impressive that a band that broke up in 1970 can have the best selling album of the 2000s.
