12. Revenge

Hulu,fictional character,revenge,hulu,

My grandmother loves old British mysteries, and now there is a show like that for our generation.

Revenge is probably so good because it's based on a classic—Alexandre Dumas's The Count of Monte Cristo.

The main character rebuilds her life on top of a mountain of lies and secrets all in order to avenge her father's death.

I love modern takes on classics—like Clueless which was based on Jane Austen's Emma, and 10 Things I Hate About You based on Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew.

You can enjoy the modern movies on a deeper level if you know what inspired them.

That's why fans of Revenge should read The Count of Monte Cristo.
