It’s been a while since we last saw those fine folks in the Hamptons, and ABC has been kind enough to offer us a refresher course. I’ve included the links to two videos which tell the story from the beginning – one by Amanda – the real one, not that Emily person – and one from the perspective of Nolan. I’ve also, uh, “borrowed” the network’s profiles on the characters. If you’re already a fan of the show, I hope this helps to jog your memories on whatever details you might have forgotten. If you haven’t seen the program, well, I hope you’ll watch it. It’s a lot of fun, with a lot of twists and turns, and it sure beats the conspiracies and setups Bravo has been trying to feed us.
