Thursday Movie Picks #456: TMP Television Edition - Revenge

Hello there and welcome to Thursday Movie Picks a weekly series where you share your picks each Thursday. The rules are simple: based on the theme of the week pick three to five titles and tell us why you picked them. For further details and the schedule visit the series main page here.


This week's Thursday Movie Picks is TMP Television Edition - Revenge

Well this turned out to be more challenging than I thought. Revenge movies are so much easier to pick as there are many in the genre, but TV series there are fewer of them. I guess it is so much harder to sustain a revenge plot over multiple episodes or worse…seasons I suppose. Anyway here are some that I’ve seen and like.

McMafia (2018)
An English-raised son of Russian mafia exiles, now living the ordinary life, is drawn into the criminal underworld when his uncle's act of revenge against a rival mafia, to secure their family's return to Russia, backfires. I enjoyed this series which is actually based on a non-fiction book about global organised crime, where the tv series weaves a fictional story around a fictional crime family, showing how such organised crime works on a global scale. 

The Punisher (2017-2019)
It’s in the title…a man out to punish those that murdered his family becomes a vigilante. Not my most favourite of the Marvel-Netflix series but still quite a good watch. 

Bad Sisters (2022-)
This is a fun darkly humorous mystery thriller about four sisters attempting to kill their brother-in-law for all the terrible things he has done to them.
