Revenge and Skins are my favorite TV series.
Revenge is an American drama series inspired by the Alexandre Dumas novel The Count of Monte Cristo. It is about a young woman named Amanda Clarke whose father was framed by the Grasons for treason and accused of being involved in a terrorist attack when Amanda was still a little girl. He got imprisoned and killed in jail by associates of the Grasons. His daughter was in a juvenile correctional facility untill she got released on her 18th birthday. Then, she went back to take revenge on her father’s death ; she changed her identity into Emily Thorne and rented her father’s beach house in The Hamptons, near The Grasons and started executing the stages of her elaborate plan. I like it because of the suspense and the unpredictible plot, also because its story-lines explore some political and social issues.
Skins is a British teen drama that follows the lives of a group of teenagers in Bristol who are trying to grow up and find love and happiness despite the struggles being teenagers. There are 7 seasons and three generations. The primary cast is replaced every two years, every two seasons. Each episode focuses on a particulat character and the issues they face in life, such as dysfunctional families, mental illness, bullying, substance abuse, death, etc… My favouritecharacters are Cassie, Chris, Effy and Cook.
