Eccentric in Not a Good Way
Initially I was going to give it eight stars because of the uniqueness of our weird French female detective, and in the beginning it was her refreshing idiosyncrasy of puns, sarcasms, offbeat humor & her strutting about that captures you. But, as each episode commenced she became repetitively and annoyingly tiresome. Showing few inhibitions are lead detective is often abrupt, antagonistic, rude, impolite, interrupts by talking over people. All a part of her identity to set her apart from other detective shows.
Nothing too unique about each episode's crime. Usual body in the beginning with a quick wrap up at the end w/least expected villain. One thing interesting was her frequent injections (name dropping) of a range of American shows, artists, musicians into conversations. We see her with a different assistant for most episodes which to me makes forming a connection with the series harder.
