It's not louche! It's literate!

I mentioned the other day that the ABC series Revenge has become a guilty pleasure. After posting about it, I became curious enough to look into its critical reception. One of the reviews mentioned that it's based on The Count of Monte Cristo (it's even listed in the novel's Wikipedia entry under adaptations), which I didn't know because I hadn't read it. That error is now being rectified. I'm enjoying the original in precisely the same way, which is making me feel much less guilty.
