My apologies if this series has appeared in another thread. The first two episodes were aired on BBC4 on Saturday evening. To my surprise ( well not really as I'm not a great tv watcher) it's Series 3. The history of the previous two come through in the storyline which features a dectective unit in La Belle France. It has a 'gutsy' 'punchy' storeyline and I mean that both in the literal and metaphorical descriptions. A good collection of characters - Capt. Laure Berthand ( Caroline Proust... hmmmmmm ) Lt. Gilou Escoffier who'd make the character of DCI Gene Hunt look like an extra in 'The Thin Blue Line' Yup, this character gets to punch black guys in the cells in order to sober them up enough to make a statement as well as taping a handwritten sign to a photographer's shop window telling the public that said photographer is a Paedeo! Judge Francois Roban gets my vote however. Only if he were real, I wish.................. Worth a squint, if only for the complete lack of PC on display. How very refreshing.
