Revenge is a show I only got to see a few episodes of, then gave up because I ran out of time. But I liked it, it’s very stylish, with very well-dressed characters, fancy settings, a world where money has a lot of power, but less honesty and sincerity. Revenge is a film inspired by Dumas’ masterpiece, The Count of Monte Cristo. I hope to get to see it head to tail one day, it has 89 episodes.
