La série a comme protagoniste le commissaire Cordier, avec une épouse ménagère et très bonne cuisinière et deux enfants: l'un est juge d'instruction et l'autre journaliste, tous les deux avec une tendance marquée à se mettre dans le pétrin et affligés de problèmes amoureux. Les cas qui se présentent au commissaire, certes ne sont pas simples, mais pour les résoudre, qu'il le veuille ou non, il a l'aide de sa famille. Written by
Baldinotto da Pistoia
Regularly shown on French TV, this is standard "crime" fair in the form of a TV series. Most of the actors are quite ordinary however Pierre Mondy who plays the father and who has in past film often played police roles carries it off very well as the police commissioner. Plots are fairly standard and nothing to write home about. Conflicts between Mondy ( the father ) and his son ( who is the judge ) are inevitable, one being more prone to law-and-order views and the other, as judges usually are, more laxist and left-wing. However, the series is not political and differences remain on a "family" level. If you like crime series then you may find this interesting. It cannot be compared to Maigret or Sherlock HOlmes, nor even Agatha Christie as the plots are not as convoluted and intricate. Nevertheless, if you are in the right mood ...... you may derive pleasure from some of the episodes !
