"Season 1 followed the first book until right at the end. Season 2 went off on its own. Both are very good though. The sotries are so different you don't need to compare them."

"I thought the latest version of the Count of Monte Cristo was a pretty good movie. Upon reading the book, I realized that the book was far superior, but nevertheless consider the film to be one of the better ones out there."
