A TV adaptation of the classic Alexandre Dumas novel. Edmond Dantes is falsely accused by those jealous of his good fortune, and is sentenced to spend the rest of his life in the notorious island prison, Chateau d'If. While imprisoned, he meets the Abbé Faria, a fellow prisoner whom everyone believes to be mad. The Abbé tells Edmond of a fantastic treasure hidden away on a tiny island, that only he knows the location of. After many years in prison, the old Abbé dies, and Edmond escapes disguised as the dead body. Now free, Edmond must find the treasure the Abbé told him of, so he can use the new-found wealth to exact revenge on those who have wronged him. Written by

After all these years, the comments of many of the others echo precisely what I was going to say. I remember the TV serial so well and I was also glued to the set with my parents every week. How many episode were there? Were they 30 minutes or 1 hour?
I've just started listening to the audio book on my iPod going to and from work. I'd like to have re-read the book but time is a precious commodity these days.
Yes, and the way Badel said "Mair-ced-ez" so as not confuse her with a car was another vivid memory.
However, I fear that if we saw it again we might be disappointed...but I'd still like the opportunity.
How about a FaceBook group? If there's not one, I might start one.
