- TV Series
The makers of this TV series took a page from the success of Breaking Bad and made their own localized version of it. The story is about West-Flemish potato farmers who lose all their savings and are in urgent need of money to prevent them from losing everything. Thanks to the media they come to the conclusion that farming weed is the fastest way to get their money back. At first I thought it would be a quick Breaking Bad ripoff but they succeeded in making a charming series with likable characters. It's also lighter in tone then BB and a lot of the humor comes from their bad English and the perception in Belgium of West-Flemish peasants. It's wise they stuck to 6 episodes because it would have been difficult to get more out of the story. This makes me wonder if the second season will be able to sustain the same quality level and if the writers can come up with new interesting stories.
