Storyline

This Flemish sitcom, one of the greatest TV hits ever in Belgium, is about a small group of colleagues in a non-specified (in fact, the only indications are contradictory) ministerial department in pre-federal Belgium. It's all about there mainly petty rivalries, gossip, interests etc. The original head of their division is director Paul Thienpondt, somewhat pompous but very pragmatic and well-connected, risen trough the ranks. The only other cadres, who rival to replace him, first temporarily and later for good, are Bonaventuur Verastenhoven, highly cultivated and classy but unpopular as a snob and too perfectionist to be productive, and Philemon Persez, an idealistic do-gooder whose marriage above his birth rank goes sour as he's drawn to Thienpondt's secretary Mireille Puis. The middle level, where most of the daily work is done, has two pranksters: Jean De Pesser, womanizing father of a handicapped boy with a simpleton wife Josée, a boasting trade union representative, and Gilbert...

Trivia

One motion picture was made as about (roughly) the same characters starring the series cast: Kollega's maken de Brug, De (1988), essentially a double-length episode. Note the different spellings of the keyword (meaning "colleagues"), but in Dutch there were two officially codified alternatives for many words, mostly involving a few sounds such as K. See more »

Classic Belgium TV Series
14 October 2003 | by (Oostende, Belgium) – See all my reviews

These series belong to the collective memory for the Flemish people, a soapopera which portrays the life of government office workers in Belgium. Each character does remind you of somebody in real life, and anyone who has ever worked in a state office, will certainly laugh out with the situations: boredom, bureaucracy, hierarchy, and the small protest and little life's from your fellow slaves.

Certainly the best tv-serie that Belgium ever produced.
