What a surprise hit. Don't gloss over it over the 8/10. It's really good.
My no review spoiler is to get you to watch this show. It's really, really good. I give it an 8, which is a high rating, since I rate Breaking Bad at a perfect 10. But don't let this 8 discourage you. This is a really well made show.
There are some flaws here and there, minor things. I wish there were more episodes, some things are a tiny bit contrived, it would've been nice to use a camera stabilizer at times, etc. but this does not detract from how fun this show is to watch.
It's really really entertaining. It's thrilling and mysterious, it's funny and sad, it makes you laugh and it makes you shed a tear, the whole roller-coaster and you know what? It does all this in 8 episodes.
It does more in 8 episodes than many shows can't do over years and seasons.
Don't think this is just regular 90's-style TV. This may not be Breaking Bad quality, but it's post-Golden Era TV, that is, this is not the product of rejects from cinema, but has some of the best acting and production I've seen from France in quite some time.
It's really that good.
