I think it's a little easy to criticize "Les Bleus"...Have you seen the rest of the french shows? I'm not sure France will ever be as good as the U.S concerning TV shows. You can't compare the two of them. So, yeah, if you watch something from HBO and "Les Bleus", you might think it's crap. But the thing is, it's the best French have ever done on TV. Its strength, I believe, remains on the writing, which reminds me both of U.S scenarios but without completely copying it and adding up some french humor and style. There are a lot of very funny references; on the whole, the cast is good especially considering how french acting is.... The problem with other french shows is that they try to copy U.S ones, but they neither have the actors for it, nor the inspiration, and above all, they try to do something that doesn't match to France. All we ever see on TV is unrealistic and seems not to have been thought over;there's no logic, no creation in it. The "les bleus" crew i think were aware of all those mistakes,just did their own special thing and worked hard on it. Plus it's obvious they have way more talent than the others!
